Will "siloed" or segmented curriculum soon be considered a learning model of the past? Many argue that the silo effect that has dominated education over the years needs to be eliminated, so that today's student can develop real-world skills more effectively. But it may not require a system-wide revolution. As more teachers focus on interdisciplinary studies, siloed classes may gradually become part of the past.
Integrated learning has gained renewed strength in education with the growth of STEM curriculum, among other progressive learning models. STEM not only provides more hands-on application, but it better prepares students to analyze and learn critical thinking skills that will be valuable to their future education and professional pursuits.
