Education can change the world

Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

Ask anyone who has changed their life, from an uneducated job seeker to a graduate job seeker, how much education has changed their life and chances are they will tell you it changed them forever. Knowledge has that kind of power.

The power of knowledge is redefining personal boundaries, shattering invisible walls and stirring up geopolitical realms. It produces wisdom, the great leveler. Education is the cornerstone of positive change and the spark of evolution. It’s no wonder those in positions of power, private or political, cringe at the thought of an educated workforce or populace.

The genesis of intelligence is information, whether collected as an individual or in a group of any size. Engaged learning should be a lifelong endeavor, dedicated to the continual acquisition of knowledge and practical application. Acquiring wisdom can easily become a habit, especially when taught to children early in childhood.

Learning habits start young

Studies have consistently shown that “learning from experience, especially for young children, is always more effective than learning from instruction,” says Dr. David Whitebread and Dr. Sue Bingham from the University of Cambridge. “Many fundamental processes that support thinking, reasoning and learning are already functioning at birth or become available within the first 4-5 years of life.”

Based on these and similar findings, the development of a habit of “conscious knowledge-gathering” is an easily acquired tendency, a genetic gift that is pre-programmed in humans for lifelong use. It would follow, of course, that living in an educated state of mind is a “fundamentally natural part of our DNA, and to not do so disrupts our natural evolution as a species.”

We are born curious

We are naturally curious. We should learn. Our brain is the most complex object in the known universe and absorbs knowledge as quickly as it comes in. The brain’s ability to process, understand, and trigger information so quickly and effectively has been a source of fascination and study since humans have been able to consciously think.

With all the distractions of modern life, the natural course of knowledge accumulation – education – has been fractured and disrupted. ‘Learning to learn’ is a focused area of ​​ongoing research today as the problems of everyday life increasingly interfere with our instinctive desires for wisdom and enlightenment.

Students need to be engaged

Creating quality learning environments in the 21st century has sparked renewed interest in academic circles as the fabric of public education continues to change and redefine itself. In the face of today’s social, economic, and political changes, our educational systems and institutions must reflect the importance of engaging students, just as they work towards imparting knowledge. This is especially important in disadvantaged communities across the country.

As the challenges of advancing as a species evolve in today’s accelerating lifestream, along with technological advances affecting every aspect of our daily lives, surely the possession of the innate ability to learn is the most important trait that humans share and nurture be able .

We are committed to constantly reviewing the educational tools at our disposal that enable us to catapult society into the future, and away from outdated learning mechanisms that impede our ability to gather knowledge efficiently. Involvement of students and adults Interactive Technology Environments, has proven to be one of the most effective knowledge transfer tools available to educators.

Positive change is not just something we can talk about, it is something we can achieve through education. The world as we know it has given us the gift of knowledge to increase our gift of life. All we have to do is learn how to use our intelligence to repay it.
