According to the U.S. Department of Education, America must provide students with a strong education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to prepare them to succeed in the global economy. But while the academic pillars of STEM might seem intimidating, STEM learning also presents the opportunity for today’s students to enhance their problem-solving skills and develop into creative, critical thinkers. STEM learning is collaborative and project-based. Kids work closely together in a hands-on way to solve real-world problems.
But what are the challenges STEM learning presents to today’s students? As students advance in school, the work load often becomes more difficult, complex, and at times even overwhelming. With the start of another school year, there is an opportunity to reassess study habits and create a game plan at home and in the classroom. From elementary school through college, effective study habits are not only the key to better grades, but can also make for a less stressful learning experience for every student.
In this interview, renowned parenting and education expert Dr. Michele Borba shares her top study tips and advice for getting students involved and excited about STEM subjects, including recent study findings revealing the challenges parents and students face with STEM learning.
