We at VISION-Educating the world are a team that believes that there is an urgent need to educate the world.
What gives rise to this need?
Actually, the world is a wondrous place and education means
to understand the secrets governing the world. The key word here is understanding. Understanding means that one actually sees the issue, concept, principle, law as connected to things and making complete sense. Understanding means understanding fully and not
memorizing and having a vague foggy notion of the subject that one is studying.
Another very important thing is interconnectivity and integration. Everything
is connected in the world. To grasp something is to see it in the real world and also to see it connected to all that exists.
For example if we understand,
really understand something in physics, we immediately wonder, "Who discovered this and when?" and that takes us to history and when we study history, we ask, "but when did man come into existence?" and that takes us to biology and anthropology and then we
ask who and how did man come to such great advances and why are there still problems and that takes us into philosophy and when we ask what is the root of man's self expression and that takes us into the creative arts and so on and so forth!
You see, when we understand something we start relating and this process never stops...
Learning becomes exciting, joyous and meaningful....
Learning also leads to power. If you truly understand the world on a basic level and fundamentally,
you will understand your own field on a deeper level and get many ideas in it.
We believe that learning should never be by rote and never be compartmentalized.
Today, education is largely compartmentalized and hence not truly exciting for students.
We have to bring back into education true understanding, true enlightenment and true empowerment.
Come let us educate ourselves
and spread the light!
Come let us together educate the world!
