The evolution of education is closely monitored by parents, teachers and governments. The future of our kids, after all, depends on the knowledge and skills they learn in their formative years!
Time and again, however, traditional education has proved ineffective at meeting the challenges of the ever-changing world. It has proved inept at preparing children for gruelling or rewarding careers. Many a time, traditional schooling has in fact killed the natural sense of wonder that kids are endowed with.
That’s why we at Kidpillar are strong advocates of STEM learning. In the STEM system, subjects that even grown-ups (including teachers and parents) consider boring — such as science, engineering and mathematics — are taught to kids with a hands-on and discovery-based approach. This helps them develop their innate curiosity and interest, retain knowledge for much longer, and apply it in practical situations.
Let’s take a look at the key differences between the traditional and STEM approaches to education with this visual infographic:
