Integrating with other fields makes a progress in a study. Especially in the education, this way is useful to improve students’ understanding and creativity. Despite this, incorporating knowledge and concepts in different fields might lead to teachers and students suffering from additional burdens because this way is hard to be applied in school education.
Admittedly, unifying several studies plays a significant role in developing students’ interests and helping them focus on learning. Students are likely to have a hard time being interested in learning Math or Science because their classes are composed of complex formulas and difficult theories without enjoyable outside activities. When these majors are unified with Art or English speaking, then it helps attract students, and students may become interested in these classes. According to the STEM education report 2012, in several representative US STEM high schools like Basis.ed, the convergence education has been actively offered. For instance, students explain scientific concepts not only by drawing paintings but also performing dramas. Through this program, students’ interests and creativity has been developed, and many students major in STEM fields after graduating from high schools.
However, on some occasions convergence education has a negative effect on leaning. Not only do students encounter difficulties in understanding academic concepts and ideas, but teachers are also confused by teaching several subjects at the same time. According to the STEM Korean report 2015, Korean teachers tend to consider convergence education to be time-consuming, while students are also in doubt about learning several studies at one time. Furthermore, many researchers have revealed that convergence between engineering and technology classes has relatively less relations in contributing to a better education.
All in all, incorporating several studies is beneficial in that it can help students take part in classes actively. However, in some instances, this ways has limits to be practically used as a useful education system.
