"All pedagogy is only the art of waking up the natural curiosity of the young mind for the purpose of fulfilling it since." – Anatole France
The purpose of education is to create responsibility, production and community citizens – people who can provide their own families and contribute to society. As Toffler says, education in the 21st century should allow people to learn, unlearn and relearn. But I'm not sure that our schools and upper secondary schools are committed to this.
Education is one of the most unscientific human endeavors. You are doing well at school to get to college and earn a good degree. A good degree is considered to be a passport for a good job. Based on your educational abilities, you can climb a relatively high position without having to show outstanding ability.
Beyond that, you can have a problem. There is no confirmed relationship between school performance and your work performance. There is also no connection between your performance at work and your success in life.
To be a true purpose, education should support a child to develop three basic ways:
1. Discover, develop and continuously develop a vision to become a useful social media:
Many of us have the advantage – Our parents see our future for us and we try to get this vision. However, this is not as common among the poor. The education system needs to step in to help everyone create this vision and even base the poor child's confidence in the vision.
Balaji Sampath, who runs Eureka Child – a non-governmental organization committed to improving literacy and maths skills in government schools, told us to contact history in this context. When he came from the United States to do something important in education, he immersed himself in local issues by spending a few months in a village. He was in the village bedroom when a child asked the teacher when it was possible to travel to the moon. "You and I can not fly to the moon," replied the teacher. "But scientists in the United States can …" We must stop robbing our children's goals and dreams.
2. Leave questions to be more important than answers:
The education system focuses on providing answers – often with questions that the children do not have. In other words, we often teach children terminology without context; We must show them why learning is important. We need to focus on alert kids & # 39; natural curiosity and teach them to love to learn. A good way to do this is to put children in a natural experience or in games where they can ask questions. In these settings, learning is close and strong. Learning can be a discovery process and offers students a wide range of learning goals – as our circumstances and decisions later in life provide different results.
For example, non-governmental organizations in Mumbai went to school with an attempt to teach students about water protection. Students measure the amount of drinking water while brushing their teeth with the tap open and then again by loosening. Imagine if we learn all this kind of lesson at school, how can we apply the principles to so many other aspects of our home and work later in life.
3. Learning to Learn:
The world is developing too fast for schools and secondary schools to continue. What is taught is insufficient and outdated, or will be soon. It is important that children are encouraged to find answers on their own – through the internet, by experimenting and accessing top-level experts in all areas.
It is important for students to study scientifically –
(a) to build a hypothesis based on observations
(b) to design and execute attempts to prove or suggest these hypotheses and
to close Admit that the results may change with additional information.
Today's level of knowledge is also important to evaluate what to learn and how and when you need to learn it. We need to teach children when to rely on their own judgments and when to rely on the expertise of others. Our children must learn that even when you outsource the campaign, you are responsible for the result.
What do you think? Do you agree with these ideas of critical ability that our children need? Is our education system dealing with this? Do not share your thoughts and experiences with all of us.
