There have been initiatives across the globe to enhance STEM education in schools and higher education. As these initiatives increase, teachers will ensure that they incorporate methods such as active learning as well. Countries such as China and Singapore have made major investments in improving STEM education and have the highest rates of science and mathematics literacy among Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is the resistance to improve technical skills. While the role of technology in the education sector has undergone a change, but the budget allocations dedicated to improvement of IT infrastructure at many institutions has not grown at the same rate. While technology for classroom learning needs to be flexible, financial resources allocated to assist institutions in the transformational work are a major constraint in the adoption of digital classroom products. In case of K-12 schools, resources like servers, network infrastructure, backup storage, and power supply are also constrained and restrict the implementation of such advanced technological solutions.
