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?
Although promising signs indicate the COVID pandemic is becoming more manageable, it's reasonable to expect the back-to-school season to look different.

Gamification and game-based learning are different instructional strategies, but both can work wonders for student engagement.

STEM is a crucial part of any student’s curriculum, right from the initial phase of their educational journey. In their formative years, the skills and knowledge gained by students are much more concrete and reflect in the way they approach their professional lives. Considering this, facilitating STEM learning requires educators and students to collaborate so that the learning experience can be successful and goal-oriented.
With the amount of information that students consume today, it is a great challenge for educators to create unique learning experiences. However, with the right tools and technologies, educators can truly create memorable STEM learning experiences that can help students learn and grow.
Here are a few ways in which you can transform how you teach STEM subjects to your students:
The changes set in motion in 2020 offered the world of higher education the chance to explore new opportunities and get a deeper understanding of matters previously only partially uncovered. Technology played a major role in this respect: in fact, with the massive shift to remote and hybrid schedules, EdTech helped completely reshape learning and teaching. The following list features 10 EdTech trending topics in higher education to keep an eye on right now and in the future post-pandemic world.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of interrelated physical objects connected through the internet, which has found several applications in the education world in recent years, from K-12 to higher education.
The purpose of this connection? To put it simply, to exchange and transfer data without requiring direct intervention. IoT has become an integral part of the innovation brought to schools by EdTech in recent years, and even though it is not as widespread as of now, it will soon find its way into more and more institutions in the upcoming years.
This is a reminder that one month from today, on April 30, 2021, Poly by Google we’ll be shutting down the ability to upload models directly on the Poly website or via API.
Hello everyone. My name is Elad Inbar. I'm the CEO for RobotLAB. Today I'm going to talk to you about VR Expeditions, 2.0. As you probably heard, Google decided to discontinue Google expeditions. Somewhere mid-June, they will basically shut down their servers and we will lose access to all the expeditions and all the resources that they put together over the years. It's unfortunate, but that's their decision.
Using VR to give students engaging art education experiences isn't complicated--check out these resources to get started.
