By Devin Partida

California's change in school funding will harm students and schools -  CalMatters

Maybe you have an amazing idea for a STEM extracurricular project, but you simply lack the budget needed to make it a reality. Here are the words you probably don’t want to hear: You have to write a grant proposal. Though it may seem daunting, as an educator, you already have the necessary skills to draft a compelling grant submission and secure the funds you need. Let’s get started.

Compared to other careers, underrepresentation is rampant in STEM-related roles. According to job statistics by Pew Research Center, Black and Hispanic workers remain underrepresented in various STEM occupations, only making up 8-9% of STEM jobs. This share is lower in specific job clusters, such as engineering and architecture, with only 5% of black workers making up the total workforce. While women comprise 50% of the STEM workforce, 74% are healthcare practitioners and technicians — making other fields vastly outnumbered by men. With robotics highly dependent on computers and engineering, it’s unsurprising that diversity in the industry is at an all-time low.

Anyone in the education sector knows that new technologies are poised to revolutionize the traditional classroom.

In the past few years, educational institutions have adapted to a new normal brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents, students, teachers and administrators had to remain flexible, adjust to virtual learning environments and adopt new digital technologies to facilitate learning.

Although the industry is still reeling from the adverse effects of the pandemic, the global disruption sparked major growth in one relevant sector: education technology (ed tech).

A primary example of ed tech is artificial intelligence (AI), which has already proven itself as a highly useful, effective tool with various applications and benefits. How important is AI in supporting the rise of the ed tech market? Will more K-12 and secondary education institutions adopt AI-based solutions in the future?

Whether it is creating a favorable learning environment or holding teacher-parent meetings, administrative and educational processes in universities, colleges, and schools are filled with a lot of paperwork and repetitive processes.

These processes consume a lot of resources and time, things that can be used in other areas to improve learning experiences. If you visit most universities around the globe, do not be surprised to find that they are largely understaffed.

The ratio of staff to students even gets worse in the peak season, meaning that a solution is needed as soon as possible. Fortunately, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can help administrators and educators to automate processes and tasks in a bid to create a better working and learning environment.

Let’s face it: Ours is truly the great age of technology. And while many parents may want their children to enjoy the simple innocence of childhood, free of the risks that an overreliance on tech can yield, the simple truth is that technology isn’t just a staple in the lives of children today, but it’s also inevitably going to form the cornerstone of their future success.

In other words, there’s just no denying the central importance of technology in the lives of children today. Millennial parents, however, understand perhaps better than most that this is by no means a necessarily bad thing. As the first generation of digital natives, millennials understand what it means to grow up with a device in your hands.

Best of all, they understand the unique power of technology as a learning tool. It is for this reason that millennial parents and educators are increasingly forging a potent alliance for the use of technology in education.
