“Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life. We must have life-building, man-making and character-making assimilation of ideas.” -Swami Vivekananda
With the ‘knowledge’ explosion running rampant across the globe as well as the society where we live, the same has crept into the classrooms of now, creating tension and turmoil in the tender minds of children who long to have a joyful and fun-loving schooling today. Learning is almost similar to eating. It is not how much you eat that matters, rather how much you digest.
Therefore, we do not need more academic qualification but Intelligence (quickness to learn), Skill (ability), Competence (ability along with willingness to apply) and Attitude (values). It is high time that the paradigm shift from ‘learn to earn’ to ‘learn to live’ is to be brought into the classrooms of today in order to bestow on our children the bountiful gifts that life awaits with.
If a child can’t learn the way we teach, let’s teach the way they learn. But the teaching-learning process must enrich the cognitive aspects such as consciousness, imagination, perception, thinking, intelligence, judgement, language and memory while enhancing the non-cognitive aspects viz. emotion and instinct.
When this sort education system is carried out with utmost dedication, I am pretty sure that every young mind will be endowed with a joyous learning towards a blissful living.
Wishing all teachers, parents and children a happy schooling now and in the ages to come!
