30 Critical Student Breakthroughs

From Informative Student Loan Infographics to Eco Libraries

— April 30, 2012 — Social Good
These critical student breakthroughs have chipped away at the barriers to learning. Designers and professors are working all over the world to improve the state of education, and the responses have become increasingly imaginative. A heady mix of interior design, social media and technology in the classroom has widened the scope of academic instruction, making the concept more relevant and appealing to contemporary learners.

The rise of informative student loan infographics and eco libraries has changed the way we view higher instruction. There is a new emphasis here on transparency and the environment, allowing pupils to harmonize their values with schooling procedures. These unconventional approaches have also reinterpreted the field of pedagogy, turning traditional models of delivery on their head. The emphasis on creativity here has spurred a new informed breed of both young and old scholars.
