The exciting future of STEM


Despite the importance of STEM education, it’s hard to hold on to students. Of those seeking a bachelor’s degree in a STEM program, 48% drop out or transfer, with even worse rates for associate degree candidates. That says to me that it doesn’t matter what the demand is—we’re likely to lose half of our students one way or another.

There are two ways education technology can make a difference in STEM fields:

1. Make the curriculum more interesting.

2. Provide real time support in remediation.

When students get bored and/or lost, there is the risk of dropping out. While some people decry this as the rise of “student as customer,” it’s simply a reality that’s not going away. The smart institutions know that they are competing for students now, and are more willing than ever to make sure they are delivering the best value to their students.

The STEM Education Coalition is also dedicated to informing federal and state policymakers on the critical role that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education plays in U.S. competitiveness and future economic prosperity.
Their advocacy can be summed up into five beliefs:

  1. STEM education must be elevated as a national priority
  2. Our nation’s future economic prosperity is closely linked with student success in the STEM fields
  3. The U.S. must increase the capacity and expand the diversity of the STEM workforce pipeline
  4. Policymakers at every level must be informed about policy issues related to STEM education
  5. Effective policies to promote STEM education should be bipartisan and evidence-based

Why Remediation and Visual Learning technology is an answer


Currently, there are two factors hindering students from getting the help they need to be successful in science and mathematics: inadequate materials for faculty, and methodologies that are confusing to parents. Addressing each of these can help students get the support they need- in school and at home.

Fun and engaging for both students and teachers, remediation and visual learning platforms include pattern and object recognition, early visual recognition, and many other benefits that help efficiently teach and measure a student’s understanding of STEM concepts.
