People with bachelor’s degrees in science, technology, engineering and math are more likely than other college graduates to have a job, but most of them don’t work in STEM occupations, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report released Thursday.
Nearly 75 percent of all holders of bachelor’s degrees in STEM disciplines don’t have jobs in STEM occupations, according to a survey that reached 3.5 million homes, said Liana Christin Landivar, a sociologist with the Census Bureau. The bureau’s American Community Survey is the largest household survey in the nation.
About half of those who have degrees related to engineering, computers, math and statistics do get a STEM job, the survey found.
I tend to lead folks down this path:
- What’s your budget?
- How often is it leaving the house without access to power/wifi?
- Where will you use it the most - desk in house, lap on couch, or coffee shop/on-the-go?
- What kind of work are you going to do on it? Simple-access, or power-user?
- How long do you plan to have it?
For those who choose teaching as a career, it isn’t typically for the high paycheck. But, there are some things that can have a positive or negative influence on a teacher’s pay. And some of them may surprise you!
A great education can be the key to your child’s success. Students who attend private schools are more likely than their public school peers to earn a bachelor’s or advanced degree by the time they are in their mid-twenties. Higher education is often made possible by a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, like that found in top private schools. A private school education has many advantages over a public school education, including lower student to teacher ratios, higher standards in the classroom and for graduation, and a commitment from both teachers and students to maintain those high standards.
According to a national survey conducted for Northeastern University, although the majority of Americans think higher education is critical to success, 83% believe the country’s current system must innovate in order for it to remain competitive in a global leadership position. Americans said Higher Education needs to focus on five key areas.
Mobile Learning- it’s easy, it’s intuitive and it definitely gives good returns on investment. With many organizations already using it and others beginning to take the plunge, mlearning seems to have taken off well- thanks to rapid innovation in cloud computing and widespread adoption of BYOD policies. Already, combined tablet and smartphone shipments surpass those of desktops and notebooks. However, the inherent characteristics of a mobile pose a few challenges to instructional and content designers in avoiding the risk of defeating its purpose of learning.
Drawing on the analysis of over 4,000 surveys collected in seven developing countries and corresponding qualitative interviews, this report paints the most detailed picture to date of who reads books and stories on mobile devices and why.
The findings illuminate, for the first time, the habits, beliefs and profiles of mobile readers. This information points to strategies to expand mobile reading and, by extension, the educational, social and economic benefits associated with increased reading.
Education is a ‘hot topic’ in the United States,but it’s time to go global. While we see education as a human right, you might be surprised by the levels of engagement and access to basic education for students around the world.
Blended learning can tick a lot of boxes for a lot of different teachers who teach in potentially quite different scenarios. From 1:1 classrooms and schools with plenty of iPads to BYOD classes filled with different types (and amounts) of technology, blended learning can help nearly every teacher make learning more personalized and more interesting for their students. Implementing a blended learning program in your classroom can be a great way to put the technology tools you have – whatever they may be – to use.
