We live in a highly technological world. In fact, there is a revolution going on right now from the industrial to the information age.
- Uber and Lyft own no cars!
- Amazon owns no stores!
- Airbnb owns no real estate!
- Facebook creates no content!
- Alibaba has no inventory!
It’s about information! These are part of a digital ecosystem. Innovation is not always liked, therefore, revolution.
So, in the immortal words of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, “Teach Your Children.” That means they must know about technology and everything that involves. Teachers and parents must make sure they are being prepared for this digital, AI, and VR world. Be sure the schools are teaching it, teaching it well, and are making it interesting. All children, not just some, need a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematical (STEM) education.
Now that I think of it, to see patterns and trends, to see the next question or possible invention, you need to be creative, have an imagination. That would be a developed skill through arts education. I guess we need to make it STEAM, adding Art to science, technology, engineering, and math.
Wait a minute, we don’t want to be illiterate. One must be able to communicate their thoughts, questions, and hypotheses in writing and in words. So we need Reading and wRiting, thusly STREAM.
Anyway parents, teachers, and schools, I have found the perfect source for STEM-related toys, subscriptions, and equipment for children of all ages’ STEMKIDS!
