It's been six years since Google left China, and the world’s second-largest economy remains a tough market for multinationals. Fellow tech giants Apple, Microsoft and Facebook continue to battle with regulatory hurdles, censorship, intellectual property challenges and other restrictions.
Do you ever wonder if STEM and project-based learning (PBL) can happen in the physical education classroom? If you were to watch the fifth grade students at White Oak Elementary during their physical education class, you may see this nontraditional approach to improving physical fitness come alive.
International Business Machines Corp. continued its remarkable innovation streak after securing 8,088 U.S. patents in 2016. It marks the 24th consecutive year IBM earned the most patents of any other company. Around 2,700 of IBM’s 2016 patents were related to artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, and cloud computing.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from California on Saturday and placed a constellation of satellites in orbit, marking the company's first launch since a fireball engulfed a similar rocket on a Florida launch pad more than four months ago.

Walk around the classrooms at Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES’ Adirondack Educational Center, and you will see students moving. Gone are the rows of desks where students sat and listened to the teacher; that model has been replaced with dynamic and interactive learning experiences that infuse STEM technologies and academic rigor with real-world work applications.
Looking closer at students’ MOOC habits, researchers found that some people quit watching within the first few minutes. Many others were merely “grazing,” taking advantage of the technology to quickly log in, absorb just the morsel they were hunting for, and then log off as soon as their appetite was satisfied.
A group of management professors from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology think so, and they’ve published a new study on a data-driven model they say is more predictive of faculty research success than traditional peer-based tenure reviews.
School choice, support of teachers unions, and her record in Michigan have been the leading controversial talking points in education when it comes to Donald Trump’s pick for Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos. But with a background in technology investment, could DeVos be a leader in the support of successfully-implemented edtech?
Last year, Black Enterprise interviewed Ayanna Howard, Ph.D., an award-winning robotics scientist. Howard has worked with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, where she led various robotics projects. She is also a Motorola Foundation Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech’s Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines.
