22 May STEM Education vs. Traditional Models
In a previous post, we talked about how STEM education fits the mold of today’s student and how, because of this, STEM education is often more effective than traditional teaching models for engaging students with the course material. Students today engage and interact with content and their surroundings differently than previous student generations have. While this may be the case, a lot of our STEM classrooms are still using traditional teaching models. Those teaching models may have been very effective at one point, but refreshing lesson plans and curricula to meet the mindset of today’s students could go a long way.
With easily accessible technology ready at the fingertips, we’re seeing a new breed of learners with a new style of learning. These students function better when they are hands-on and engaging with the content they’re learning. In this post, we want to talk about the advantages STEM education has over traditional classroom teaching models.
