Channelize Potential of New Generation through Contemporary Education

The education sector has always had a longstanding impact on the way any society evolves and progresses. It is thus vital to empower the new generations and to channelize their immense potential through contemporary and well-delivered education. In the pursuit of knowledge that is enterprising and futuristic, institutions across the globe are trying their best to keep up with the breakneck speed of innovation and ingenuity.

As technological innovations surge ahead in the real world, education seems to be rambling along feebly. Thus, standard academic education is eventually falling short on the expectation count of the students, the parents, the employers and the society at large. Higher education is being indicted for being impractical, unfocussed, and disillusioned, as young minds are constantly yearning for more in terms of real-world knowledge, transferable skills, futuristic outlook and more. Learning, in totality, should be able to meet the changing dynamics concerning quality education, innovation and research, aiming to make the institutions knowledge superpowers.

Today, programs are being reviewed, analyzed, scrutinized, and criticized for not matching up to the present inquisitive minds and evolved knowledge seekers. Diverse and advanced communication technology have opened up new avenues of information. Knowledge is no longer restricted to textbooks and libraries, and is easily accessible to the point that students no longer need a college to learn new skills, understand complex concepts, and apply tested theories. Today, the onus of reviving the mettle of education is upon the educators, who need some actual out-of-the-box thinking to bring the curricula to an accepted level of relevance.

Design Thinking and Research–based Learning come to mind by virtue of their distinctiveness and simplicity applied in problem solving. Both these approaches urge the mind to think beyond the obvious and pushes it to break the barriers imposed by conventionality. These newer systems of thinking and learning are poised to become fundamental for making students future-ready.

The times are calling for radical changes in higher education. Thus, it is imperative to foster innovation and catalyze change in education to take on society’s big challenges. Through effective knowledge building and successful implementation, the global education community can positively benefit.
