Book Description

The system of education in India has seen a drastic change over the years. In the beginning, education was provided by a Guru (teacher) and the place of study was known as Gurukul, where the student had to go to a teacher’s place to learn and gain knowledge. The system of education during the ancient times was way different from how it is today. The kind of education one received was closely linked to nature and life and the students would stay at the guru’s house for as long as they wish. The students were taught everything from maths, science to Sanskrit and Holy Scriptures to literature, medicine, and history. This educational system is considered to be the oldest as well as the most effective system of education.  However, after the introduction of modern education in India, we saw a major change taking place on the ground of educational philosophy. Students were introduced to various new subjects, classroom environment changed to confined walls, the link with nature slowly drifted away. Today, the system of education is more about learning from textbooks and memorizing for exams. 

This system of modern education acts as a barrier in the bond between teachers and students.    Education is a journey which gives the art of living, not just the livelihood. It makes us learn how to grow our life and be more creative. Education makes us understand our conflicts. Thus education is not merely learning of facts but is to training our mind to think. Education systems must provide opportunities to each and every individual to learn through experience and should help to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.  These were the era when students started mugging up the content. They were started memorizing the concept in English rather than learn by heart. Books    Thus this generation of education system has rote learning system in which students was bounded to the textbook content rather than experienced based learning.    The discovery of computers and Internet in early 90s has changed the education system completely. 

This was the beginning of third generation of education system in India, Education 3.0, and 21st century generation. Integration of technology in education made it a fun learning process. In early years, computers were used only to keep records in administration. But now along with the administrative procedures, technology plays a major role in teaching learning process. This blended system of education provides better avenues of understanding the concept. It helps learner to develop critical thinking and problem solving skill. The digital learning has converted teachers into facilitators who provide learner all possible resources. Thus the 21st century education system is more learner-centric.    Information and communication technology is a boom to the education system. No doubt still there are certain areas where the system has to improve; still today’s generation education system has potential to develop skilled future generation.    As said in the beginning of the article, Education is journey, Now, we must look forward to prepare yourself for the coming generation of education i.e. EDUCATION 4.0 where student is in the core. It focuses on learner with technology. It will be a learner based system, for the learner and by the learner. It will be a skill based learning which meets the individual learner’s need.
