Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects are integral to our contemporary way of life. A significant amount of our day-to-day activities involve advanced technology to some degree. As a result, many of our industries have become reliant upon tech solutions, meaning that STEM-proficient workers are essential.
STEM learning from an early age is vital to ensure that students are equipped to meet the needs of the world they’ll inherit. We now have some incredible, inexpensive tools at our disposal to keep students engaged and passionate about these subjects. Drones stand out as a fun and practical apparatus for class projects, experiments, and exploration.
We’ll take a look at a few of the ways in which drone technology can be incorporated into STEM education. Beyond some of the seemingly obvious, we can use them intelligently to enhance learning, engage passions, and demonstrate STEM as a force for good in the world.
Incorporating the coronavirus crisis in course content can leverage students’ curiosity while showing them the real-world applicability of what they’re learning.
From visual coding to coding languages to programming hardware, coding is an everyday skill whose relevance for future jobs make it just as essential for students to learn as composition and algebra.
With a global health crisis going on, it is only natural to be focused on the present, but as the world begins to feel the beneficial effects of the emergency measures against COVID-19, it is time to look to the future.
What will we have learnt from the pandemic when all is said and done? Will school ever be the same again now that this prolonged period of forced closure has pushed educators all around the world towards a more extensive use of technology to grant their students continuity in the face of adverse circumstances?
There are many ways to teach and to learn, and one method that many schools are adopting is learning in nature. There is significant evidence that children benefit from learning new skills in the outdoors for many reasons. Many children are averse to learning math in the classroom because they feel they aren’t good at it or they don’t understand the concepts from methods used in class.
Taking the class outside is a great way to enhance learning math skills, and here are a few reasons why:
Given that social distancing is in effect due to the COVID-19 situation, exploring remote learning management systems (LMS) for your child is a great idea. Likewise, teachers and school administrators looking for ways to alleviate the situation and enhance their K-12 and academic students’ experience can take advantage of LMS.
According to Tech Jury, 43% of US college students found digital study technologies extremely helpful for doing home-based projects. In addition, 81% of students have agreed that digital learning was helpful in improving their overall grades, further adding to the positive effects of LMS. That being said, what are some of the top-performing, high-quality and affordable LMS solutions for your students in 2020?

Python is one of the world's most popular programming language for dealing with large data sets. Any data scientist will tell you that most datasets contain missing data in one form or another. Knowing how to deal with missing data is a very important skill because of this.
In this tutorial, I will teach you how to deal with missing data in the pandas library for Python.
