LOCK DOWN: THREAT OR OPPORTUNITY FOR EDUCATION SYSTEM

Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include teaching, training, storytelling, discussion and directed research.
Do You Know There Are 3 Main  Type's of  Education Namely, Formal, Informal and Non-formal.. Let See What Are Those?


                                               

1.Formal Education


Formal education or formal learning usually takes place in the premises of the school, where a person may learn basic, academic, or trade skills. Small children often attend a nursery or kindergarden but often formal education begins in elementary school and continues with secondary school.

For Example,


1.Learning in a classroom
2.School grading/certification, college,  and university degrees
3.Planned education of different subjects having a proper syllabus acquired by attending the institution.

2.Informal Education

Informal education may be a parent teaching to child how to prepare a meal or ride a bicycle.

People can also get an informal education by reading many books from a library or educational websites.

Informal education is when you are not studying in a school and do not use any particular learning method. In this type of education, conscious efforts are not involved. It is neither pre-planned nor deliberate. It may be learned at some marketplace, hotel or at home.


 For Example,
1.Teaching child to some basics i.e numeric characters.
2.Someone learning his/her mother tongue
3.A spontaneous type of learning, “if a person standing in a bank learns about opening and maintaining the account at the bank from someone.”

3.Non-formal Education

Non-formal education includes adult basic education, adult literacy education or school equivalency preparation

In Non-Formal education, someone (who is not in school) can learn literacy, other basic skills or job skills.

Home education, individualized instruction (such as programmed learning), distance learning and computer-assisted instruction are other possibilities. 

Non-formal education is imparted consciously and deliberately and systematically implemented. It should be organized for a homogeneous group. Non-formal, education should be programmed to serve the needs of the identified group. This will necessitate flexibility in the design of the curriculum and the scheme of evaluation.

For Examples ,
1.Boy Scouts and Girls Guides develop some sports program such as swimming comes under Non-Formal education.
2.Fitness programs.
3.Community-based adult education courses.
4.Free courses for adult education developed by some organization.

The above are 3 basic type's of education we seen.

All it takes is a Google search for such online course, and you’ll easily find the online programs offered by some of the most prestigious universities from all around the world. You can take such a course even if you have no aspirations to apply that knowledge in your future profession, but you’re simply curious to discover new interests and understand how the human brain works.

You will not take public transport to get to campus, you won’t have to spend money on transport, you won’t have to get up early to get dressed for class… the list of conveniences goes on and on.

A self-paced system enables them to make progress with rhythm that suits them. This type of system does not require attending live sessions; you can access the materials at any time that works for you.
