Education in Modern Society

Education in Modern Society

The world has undergone substantial transformation for the past two decades in the education sector. Education still holds a noble place in the contemporary society. It has been identified as being the ultimate pathway to success and much is still being done to give all the required support through a combination of collaborative activities for the learners. This paper illustrates how education has influenced the modern society in terms of culture, social development and technological innovations.

To begin with, education is the platform for development, growth and innovation of systems that eventually lead to globalization. It also acts as a foundation where people get to make choices on many subjects depending on their interest (Altenbaugh, 2009). Through education, individuals get the right thinking through written examinations that have continued to gain popularity with the integration of collaborative activities that help them to further have a complete understanding on the best choice of subjects. Besides that, the world has been evolving through the advancement of technological education where there is always an expanding room for new developments. It has been proven that; the new generation is composed of learners with a positive learning outlook. Therefore, through continuous assessments, individual assignments and questioning ideas, the intended purpose of a specified curriculum is achieved.

Although education varies from one state to another, it opens the minds of learners in equal proportions. Education has been known to spread the norms within the society eventually enhancing value consensus.   In addition, the modern world has been transformed through the influence of educational ideas resulting in values that have led to dynamic legitimacy and diversified professions. Human empowerment, and advanced scientific knowledge are among the well known products of a well schooled society. Through education, the minds are shaped, and a healthy society evolves over time through the infusion of mixed- ability classes thereby making the society proactive and sustainable.
