The National Science Foundation is seeking to increase the pipeline of science, technology and engineering and math talent with investments in edtech startups that make such careers accessible - and cool - to underserved kids.
Creating more opportunities for super-bright girls to skip grades might be one of the most viable ways to open cracks in the glass ceiling that has plagued STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields for decades.
Education technology providers dangle the promise of transforming classrooms and equipping previously disengaged students with the skills to become lifelong learners. Yet few can demonstrably support their arguments with strong evidence. So how can we expect a teacher or administrator with limited budget and time to separate what works from what doesn’t?
Butterfield said students need to make the most of their college experience.
It’s wise to consider a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). Opportunities for professionals in these fields should continue to expand in the years ahead. But, there’s one major hurdle a lot of young people seem to be struggling to clear.
The 21st century has brought a revolution to the world of education both over distances and in the classroom. The days of the traditional learning models of the world are numbered as we enter a digital, global educational arena. We can already see the effects of these new technologies on education today and here are five of the main ways technology is improving education.
The H-1B visa was designed to attract the world’s best talent – people with rare skills needed to help the U.S. economy.
One of the major drawbacks to the Internet of Things ecosystem and “smart” devices more generally is the way both are treated as a gold mine for gathering information on end users, often without their knowledge or consent. Bose is the latest company to stand accused of such shenanigans in a lawsuit filed yesterday in federal district court.
U.S. manufacturing output today is as at an all-time high, but the industry has far fewer workers because productivity has doubled since 1994. This increase in productivity and automation is not limited to the United States, but is part of a seismic shift affecting our electronics industry worldwide.
The government doesn’t need “nongovernment culture” to improve cybersecurity. What it needs is to recruit a workforce with a long-term vision of service and innovators driven not by the prospect of living a life of success but of living a life of meaning. Nowhere is this example more apparent than at NASA.
