By asking students to explore the history of scientific discoveries, we get them to view their world with more wonder—and more skepticism—and condition their minds to think about causes and effects.
AI has incredible potential, but it will work best when the human element remains

Finding robots in the modern workplace and around the household is common. It assists humans with different tasks. The continuous growth of robotics technology, adaptability, and adoption in the modern world, will make more jobs easier.
Artificial intelligence-powered robots are already used for manufacturing, internet search engines, military combat, and rescue missions. They are taking a lot of human jobs lost to the pandemic at an alarming rate and will take more.
One sector that has largely not felt the threat of robots replacing humans is education. But there is a growing use of robots in educating kindergarten and elementary students. The question is, "When should teachers start feeling threatened by robotics in education"?
This article will take a cursory look at the pros and cons of robotics in education. And also how robots can make teachers' jobs easier.

As COVID made remote and hybrid learning an everyday reality, it also exposed network vulnerabilities, making cybersecurity awareness more essential than ever

In-person science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) classes have been the standard approach for decades. It’s easy to understand why this is the case, as these subjects aren't just about the theoretical aspects. There are also practical elements that help to provide a rich and effective technical education. As well as reinforcing theory, these practical elements often boost students’ enthusiasm for the fields.
However, as with so many other aspects of our lives, the COVID-19 pandemic served to force schools to make changes. To maintain safe distances, educators, students, and parents have had to adapt to a new manner of learning. This found educators adopting online tools in ways they hadn’t previously considered. As a result, educators proved that STEM education can be effective to some extent in remote circumstances.
A new normal is on the horizon and remote or hybrid teaching may be features of the educational landscape for the foreseeable future. As such, it’s worth examining whether online STEM classes can be more than just an emergency measure, and be adopted as a permanent measure. How can this be made practical, what can students and teachers gain from it, and what are the challenges?
A five-stage instructional model—engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate—can guide students to a deeper understanding of math.

Some adaptations for hybrid classrooms, like digital manipulatives and instructional videos—will be worth keeping when all students are back in the room.
When students who would never sign up for a robotics or coding class do so because we’ve introduced it to them, it’s a win-win for everyone.
Have you always been interested in flipped learning but you’ve never actually put it into practice? Remote education offers the perfect chance to discover all the benefits of this methodological approach.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with flipped classrooms, the concept can be explained very simply. Flipping a classroom means turning learning structures upside down: instead of introducing a new topic with traditional lectures, teachers prepare a presentation and hand it over to their students. They will watch it or read it – depending on the format – on their own before the class. Subsequently, class time will be used for hands-on education.

Today, the educational process is almost completely different from the educational process 1 decade ago. Teachers were trying to make the process more fun for children and teens, but so they can learn. Nowadays, with all new technology, it’s definitely more fun and even efficient.
Special equipment for educational purposes is designed to make the knowledge transfer process a lot easier, quicker, and more effective. Throughout the years, the educational process has been evolving, new tech has been added, and the next logical step would be to implement VR technology into the process.
What would be the results and effects on the overall process? Would it make the learning process easier and more efficient? It seems that yes, VR pack kits implementation would cause positive effects on the process. Here are the 5 ways of how VR might soon impact the educational process.
