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 uneducated 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 towards educating our species. At hobbytwin, we believe that it is possible to solve this problem once and for all by simply changing our approach and asking ourselves the right questions.
It looks like 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 herself?” How can we allow our people to educate themselves and hunger for personal development and want to learn as many skills as they can possibly accumulate? The skills that we need to develop the right kind of curiosity towards 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 promoting the development of grit and self-learning drive among students from a very young age.
“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 a person or 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 one 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.
One trademark of an ‘educated’ person is the commitment to growth and keeping pace with the rapidly changing technology of the time. 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 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 be better versions of themselves right from their childhood.
