The changing nature of education

In this era of globalisation, the interdependence of nation is not restricted to the competitive paradigm of international trade and commerce. It has the far-reaching impact on the regional, national and intra-national diversity of a country, which includes rapid demographic, social, and economic change. Its influence can be perceived from the constantly evolving social norms, and the concept of education is no different to this change.

Education viz. knowing the knowable’ is a vital part of our existence. It determines our efficiency, response and conduct towards a country’s resources. The better the quality, the higher moral resource of a country is determined. Hence, the quality of education system determines the bonafide personalities it is producing. The importance continues to develop in the context of changing global scenarios.

Furthermore, in the present times, the advent of the globalized world has resulted into rapidly increasing socio- economic environments, inter-cultural exchanges and high-paced technological advancements. Thus resultantly broadening the horizon of education from the conventional forms of classroom education.

The purpose of education is not limited to academic pursuits or to development of professional acumen, but moralization of a man. It includes the need of a holistic system that provides with values full of compassion, ethics, and engages in the peaceful development of individuals.

Today, there are numerous means of education. Earlier classroom, teachers, and libraries were by large the only mediums of education, but with the introduction of the technology platform, the identity of classroom, teachers and libraries have changed. We have developed virtual realities which includes virtual mediums changing the entire educational mechanism of human kind.

The challenge today is to reduce the disparity in the educational mechanism and to deal with the concerns with respect to the growing environmental challenges, technological and philosophical threats. To make it sustainable by providing various platforms to interact and exchange ideas which will facilitate the required growth in the education sector. After all, we cannot limit ourselves by only brimming the society with literates.

    1. Thank you. I think the society has failed to realise the difference between learning and educating. We want to educate but not learn.


    2. He that fails to learn cannot educate.
