Globalization is not a new phenomenon in the world socio-economic system. The effects of globalization are not uniform and varied responses in the positive and negative aspects of the world. To the initial enthusiasm for globalization are affordable set of processes is important for understanding the phenomenon was largely associated with increased social inequalities within and between countries, but also instability and conflict.
Globalization has a multidimensional impact on education. It was emphasized to the wider use of information technology, the need for reforms in education, especially so that the productivity dimension education and value to its research and development.
Education is an important investment in the development of human capital, which is a motor for technological innovation and economic growth. It is to ensure only by improving the educational level of a society on the multifaceted development of the population. In the post-industrial world, uses the industrialized countries to derive the majority of their national income from agriculture and industry, but in the service sector. Since the service or ministry skills-based training for students and young people, the education sector is the most desirable. A work should be available so that the sector develops in a big way.
Whether we like it or not, we all go into the next century to the citizens of the world and not to a specific country. So we must prepare for the challenges. The key to be successful in this high tech world we keep up with keeping the latest insights and developments. You can not afford to idly liable only for orthodox way, but try to keep up with the development itself. And the key will lifelong learning!
Lifelong learning is a term that is often used in different contexts; but its meaning is often unclear. The term recognizes that learning is not limited to childhood or in the classroom, but learning and a number of situations. During the last 50 years, has a constant scientific and technological innovation and change had a profound effect on the learning needs and styles. Learning is no longer a place and time, knowledge (school) and a place and time to be able to acquired knowledge (at work) apply divided.
Mark Twain said, “I never interfere with my education with my education.”
There are several established contexts for lifelong learning beyond the traditional “brick and mortar” school:
Home school when it comes to learning how to learn, or the development of informal learning patterns.
Adult Education or the acquisition of qualifications or work and leisure skills later in life.
Training, often described expansion or not-for-credit courses offered by universities.
Learning in the workplace includes professional development and on-the-job training.
Personal Learning Environments, or self-directed learning using a variety of resources and tools, such as online applications
A central Govt. Report reads,
“Last year, fewer than 10% of the working age undertook training in India. This is obviously not enough, and if we do nothing, we will find it difficult to aging in an international economy and the society in which knowledge and skills faster and faster. the time has come to act and not just think about it.
Talent and skills in the new economy in India requires that the policy shifted the emphasis to investment in human capital and in raising participation in education and training throughout working life. To keep pace with developments in technology, globalization and new business practices step, careful attention should be paid to training in the workplace – an important aspect of our strategy for lifelong learning. ”
Personally, I think the government. should come with Masterplan, which contribute to the achievement of the Indian field of lifelong learning, objectives, one of which, allowing people to meet the challenges of meeting the needs of the knowledge society and the goals of globalization.
Firstly, a broad definition of lifelong learning to recognize that learning takes place in a wide range of settings across the life span, and with a variety of goals.
Second, the ‘building blocks’ of coherent and comprehensive lifelong learning strategies should be established to assist Member States and other stakeholders in the development and implementation of these strategies.
Third, to support and add value concrete proposals for action at all levels, the national strategies. This includes a comprehensive new approach to valuing learning which citizens freely between learning settings, move jobs and countries, so most of their knowledge and skills.
Finally, the application of these structures, processes, programs and instruments.
Assuming that the public school system is not broken your soul, learning is a great activity. It expands your view. It gives you new types of skills that you can use to improve your life. Even if you discount the worldly benefits a source of joy could be the act of learning.
But in a busy world, it can often be difficult to find something that does not necessarily learn in time. The only things learned are those who needed it. Anything beyond that is considered frivolous. Even those who value the practice of lifelong learning to do, it can be difficult to make the effort.
