The skills gained from STEM education extend beyond those needed to be successful in just STEM fields. Rather, via hands-on learning with real-world applications, it helps students with varied interests develop a variety of valuable skill sets, including creativity and 21st-century skills, preparing future generations to be successful in any industry. However, in many parts of the world, STEM education can be a challenge, typically due to the lack of resources, qualified teachers and facilities, often hampering a country’s overall development.
To address these needs, Discovery Education—the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms—and SOMOS Educação—Brazil’s largest education company and one of the largest educational groups in the world—just announced an innovative new partnership that will deliver award-winning digital resources supporting STEM education to students across Brazil through Plurall, SOMOS’ digital teaching platform.
MarketScale hosts Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern explore this education collaboration, and gain a unique perspective from Kelli Campbell, Discovery Education’s President of International & University, on the impact of the Plurall platform and what the partnership means for the Brazilian education space.
