Study to Learn, not to Earn


There are thousands of reasons to study. We study to broaden our horizon towards life. It help us grow mentally, intellectually, financially in the world of knowledge. Maturity comes through this. make us able to understand other's views in a better way. It increases your value in society like people look at you with due respect when they come to know you are well educated. Basically you get a lot of respect. It also Helps our nation to achieve presence in the global scenario, basically I believe that study to learn not earn is a myth because it’s obvious money is an essential need of everyone, and there’s also a common thought of everyone that if you don’t study hard you wouldn’t earn much, people hustle to earn, but wait what if we do study to learn and polish our skills? That would be much better than to have a thinking of learn to earn, actually the reason to conveying you this thought is just not to have a thinking that you are just studying to pass out the exam and one day you will have a piece of paper and that’s it. No one can surely stops you from earnings by now then, but study for learnings make you feel honored when you will be sitting in bunch of people with bunch of knowledge almost about everything and here I am done with proving right my saying that study to learn not earn.

In most schools, memorization is mistaken for learning. Most of what is remembered is remembered only for a short time, but then is quickly forgotten. (How many remember how to take a square root or ever have a need to?) Furthermore, even young children are aware of the fact that most of what is expected of them in school can better be done by computers, recording machines, cameras, and so on. They are treated as poor surrogates for such machines and instruments. Why should children or adults, for that matter be asked to do something computers and related equipment can do much better than they can? Why doesn’t education focus on what humans can do better than the machines and instruments they create?

In the educational process, students should be offered a wide variety of ways to learn, among which they could choose or with which they could experiment. They do not have to learn different things the same way. They should learn at a very early stage of “schooling” that learning how to learn is largely their responsibility with the help they seek but that is not imposed on them.

Today, there are two worlds that use the word education with opposite meanings: one world consists of the schools and colleges (and even graduate schools) of our education complex, in which standardization prevails. In that world, an industrial training megastructure strives to turn out identical replicas of a product called “people educated for the twenty-first century”; the second is the world of information, knowledge, and wisdom, in which the real population of the world resides when not incarcerated in schools. In that world, learning takes place like it always did, and teaching consists of imparting one’s wisdom, among other things, to voluntary listeners.

SOME GOOD LEARNING WAYS:

  • Visual (spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
  • Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
  • Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
  • Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch.
  • Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.
  • Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
  • Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.
