Modern Education

In this article I want to consider, and offer you to join me wonder: what is the modern education? It makes no sense to talk about it as it is everywhere different, but what changed his nature, must understand each. That comprehensively address this question, we need a little deeper into the story. Until a few centuries ago, when there was not even the telegraph, an educated person was regarded as being a priori higher, compared with uneducated. The thing is that truly applied knowledge were available to a narrow circle of people, and, accordingly, only the narrow range of specific skills possessed knowledgeable. New information in each area, arrived bit by bit, so knowledge updated slowly. Therefore, the objectives of education are not artful: put a man in my head a certain amount of knowledge.

In those days a person could be an expert in several areas (or even in many), since he had enough time to acquisition and a small amount of material. World gradually came the telegraph and telephone, transport links all the more intensified, accelerated processes occurring in society. The result was an increase in the volume of knowledge in all fields with an acceleration rate of this increase. Naturally, school and college programs are becoming more extensive, required to learn more and greater specialization in training and become narrower. And so, already in 20th century poor students simply lived in the classrooms, spending a lot of time writing papers and cramming. End of 20th beginning of the 21th century marked an unprecedented leap in the development of information technologies: mobile and satellite communications, sprawling uncontrollably across the globe Internet, advances in computer technology.
