Holistic Education - at School or Home?

Much different than making school home or making home a school.

The future of education is here or it is on its way. A new type of 'School' will mark the education system in the next few years: homeschool. The internet revolution has begun, and it is not going away anytime soon. Video-conferencing companies like Zoom, Google Hangouts and Skype are becoming more popular with every passing year, and teachers are finding new ways to incorporate technology into their lesson plans.

Parents are also getting in on the action; they are taking advantage of online learning tools that allow them to monitor their child’s progress at home with ease. Everyone wants to be involved in this new wave of education, even if they are not necessarily in favor of it.

This may come as no surprise; after all, many parents are eager for their children to succeed academically and want nothing more than to be able to help them achieve their goals. However, what does this mean for schools? Many experts believe that homeschooling will redefine how our children learn by exposing them to new ideas and perspectives that are often missing from traditional schooling environments.

Homeschooling as a concept is not new. It has been around for years, but with the internet revolution, it has become easy to access in today’s world. From learning resources to coaching teachers to monitoring progress, there are multiple options available.

Education as the market is it a knowledge-based market or an economy-based market?

Covid has created an opportunity for the word to think of virtual schools. Why can't digitalisation be a way to go?

Looking at the increasing robots and automation, has led to the discusson of Industrial Fit Vs. Innovation Fit. Do we want out children to be industrial fit, innvation fit or both?

There is a need to get out of degree as a disease to Human dignity - while Google and other Multi-National Companies have started recruiting people based on skills and not on degrees.

Children do need to experience

  • Social and academic education at schools (could be alternate schools too)

  • Individual development by developing skills - interacting with the community

  • Parenting

Holistic education to me is where - Individual growth, Cultural exposure, Academic strength, Societal exposure and Parenting comes together.

Is home-schooling the future of education? There is no definitive answer to this question. However, what it does suggest is that there is a growing demand for more flexible and personalized forms of learning, which homeschooling can certainly provide. As society continues to change and evolve, it is likely that the education system will need to adapt in order to meet the needs of 21st-century learners. And while homeschooling may not be the right choice for everyone, it is certainly an option that is worth considering for those who are looking for a more customized and individualised form of education.

Do you know that we already have 100% virtual schools in India? While Home-schooling might start off with as an elitist concept, over a period of time, it will become the future if the concept of 'Schools' is not thought beyond the physical infrastructure.
