A recent research has predicted that in the future, the idea of classroom learning will be non-existent anymore, what with the emergence of new technology. According to the report, the main reason for this is the expectation of students for a more highly engaging and interactive learning rather than stagnant designs led by instructors.
STEM curriculum concentrates on four main areas of study: science, technology, engineering and math. Coursework is integrated and interdisciplinary. So rather than address each subject separately, courses bring these disciplines together for a cohesive learning experience. Science and math often get characterized as dull, dry subjects, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Water vapor plumes estimated to be as tall as 125 miles are possibly erupting into space from the surface of Europa, a moon around Jupiter, NASA announced on Monday. The source of these potential plumes-- scientists haven't proven that they definitively exist yet-- is thought to be an enormous ocean beneath the icy surface of Europa, and that ocean, in turn, could possibly harbor life.
Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan just pledged $3 billion over the next 10 years to “cure all disease.” It’s a big commitment, and while we’re all writing snarky think pieces about their blind optimism we should also laud them for their efforts.
While many K-12 schools and universities have been slow to adopt existing AI technology due to funding concerns and general fears about being early adopters of new technology that may prove to be unsuccessful, the report says that over the next 15 years in a typical North American city, the use of intelligent tutor systems (ITS) and other AI technologies to assist teachers in the classroom and
The UC Davis College of Engineering hosted its fourth annual C-STEM Girls in Robotics Leadership (GIRL) Camp this summer. The GIRL Camp is a week-long program that teaches 7th and 8th grade girls the principles of engineering and technology through problem-solving activities.
Many seem to think remote work won’t be an option for them if they follow their dreams of engineering or science, but that’s because we’re still looking at these fields through a smaller scope then we should and can at this point.
Security researcher and blogger Bruce Schneier has a new essay up, arguing that there’s a single body out there carrying out a systematic attempt to test the defenses of the internet’s fundamental infrastructure, presumably with the intention of one day breaking those defenses.
The use of video editing software is just one among many digital skills that children are learning both in school and at home. While shooting music videos at home can be fun, parents need to think about what type of digital skills their children will need to succeed in the future. Fortunately, the International Society for Technology in Education has already been thinking about this issue.
With a shout out from the White House, the efforts to teach computer coding to more Kanawha County, West Virginia, girls expanded Wednesday, with plans for an initiative that started with just female students to further grow and, eventually, expand beyond women and Kanawha’s borders.
