Universities reveal how technology is closing the STEM-Humanities gap

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:29 am


One of the best skills that humanities majors usually learn is the art of communication, thanks to what feels like hundreds of essay papers culminating in theses that must be argued in order to graduate. However, with the onset of social media and online community platforms, technology has the potential to help incorporate a STEM aspect of communication in the form of data science—one of the most coveted career fields today. Already, the University of Texas allows students to learn to monitor and analyze social media conversations and their impact using NUVI monitoring dashboards. AdGrad is the social media brand and the curriculum is part of the School of Advertising & Public Relations. Students work in teams to create content calendars and original content for the school’s channels and its hub, AdGradLife. In the fall, AdGrad will have three teams working to produce original content for social media channels.
