Did you say Education?
Education initiates the young into adulthood. Its goals include giving them the knowledge and skills for life, and also passing on everything from customs, values and collective memories.
The tools of education have evolved throughout human civilization. They varied from story-telling to discourses and dialogs, from cave paintings to printed texts and manuals, and from apprenticeships to vocational training.
When the goals and the tools change – and they change rapidly, the society often falls behind in catching up. Today, we are in such a situation, across the world.
This has given rise to a range of issues making education ineffective, inefficient, unfair and uninteresting. This needs to be fixed and the work is cut out for us.
This is a forum to discuss all that – the stories about our problems, challenges, opportunities and solutions related to the transformation of education.
Welcome to the dialog!
