Education is what people do to you, learning is what you do to yourself. Education is still one of the most significant challenges facing mankind even with all the technological advancements of the 20th and 21st centuries.
However, that seems to be improving with the rise of numerous platforms where people can access all sorts of information and master any skill of interest.
These efforts are directed and driven by the question “How can we facilitate learning for everyone and give the world free education?” This is a rather compelling and fruitful approach, but only to some extent and that is why we haven’t been able to solve the issue of free education across the distinct social divides in the society. Even with access to all the tools that we have today, we can still find unlearned people everywhere you look today starting from first-world countries, even with all the resources, all the way down to the poorest countries in the world.
This fact seems to suggest that it is time we came up with a better approach to teaching our people. At Hobbytwin, we believe it is possible to solve this problem by simply changing our approach and asking ourselves the right questions. It looks as if the main challenge we are witnessing in education systems all over the world is that they are more focused on conforming education rather than on promoting personal development and self-learning.
We believe that we need to change our question from “How can we give the world free education?” to “How can we allow the world to educate itself?” How can we allow people to educate themselves, hunger for personal development, and want to learn as many skills as they can accumulate?
We may not have a foolproof answer, but it looks as if the skills that we need to grow and develop the right kind of curiosity toward a culture of self-development already exist all around us with our neighbors, our classmates, and our colleagues. This seems to suggest we first and foremost need to focus on cultivating the development of grit, continuous learning, and self-learning among students from a very tender age. At Hobbytwin we believe that this can be achieved through the matching and exchange of all hobbies and all skills known to mankind.
“Education is what people do to you, learning is what you do to yourself!”
We also need to rethink and redefine the phrase “uneducated.” In the past, we have used this phrase to suggest an individual with no diploma or a degree, but today, the best-educated people are not the ones with the highest number of diplomas or the most advanced ones. The best-educated people today are the people who developed an unlimited curiosity, drive, and ambition early on in their lives, which enables them to acquire a tremendous amount of knowledge and a broad general education every day of their lives.
One trademark of an ‘educated’ person is the commitment to growth and keeping pace with the rapidly changing technology of the time without having to acquire any diploma or some other sort of certification. We need to understand that we can finish school, but we can never finish education.
When it comes to education, there is one unifying principle even in these digital times: We learn best from people; real people, and not videos or websites. Ideally, these people are also enthusiastic about the topic/activity they are learning or teaching and understand their subject.
Enthusiasm is infectious – and once a learner has caught the bug, acquiring knowledge becomes very easy. Also, the process in itself is valuable for the brain: ‘enthusiasm is the most important fuel for the development of the brain’. Says brain researcher Gerald Huther.
This fact can be witnessed even in a classroom setting; We can only inspire learners if we portray enthusiasm for a subject or an activity we also put a stamp on the way they perceive the world and the activities important to them.
That is why we only learn something if it is relevant to us, and that is one of the reasons why HobbyTwin exists; to inspire people to do the things that inspire them, and encourage them to aspire to become better versions of themselves in every opportunity.
