Digital Initiatives in STEM Education [Infographic]

Infographics are often a great motivator for student discussions, and this graphic from the Smithsonian Science Education Center is an excellent resource for this by comparing learning with technology 200,000 years ago and today.

“If you think the “information technology” transformation in schools and workplaces is new to the 21st century, you might want to look back thousands of years. Using technology to learn, play, and develop skills is a continuation of our quest to survive and adapt. About 77,000 years ago, we used baboon bone and ochre plaques. Today, we use tablets, smartphones, and video games.”
