Each generation have their own complex problems, every country have their own problem, and of the most important problem is education. Education is a common but very important problem that will never vanish anytime, anywhere. It is really important because it’s like a human task to invent or discover something, and for that, we need a high education. I’m not saying that only educated people can “invent” or “discover” but, educated person tend to have more curiosity and have many ways to discover or invent something. But, should the education system remain the same for every generation or not?
Well of course, every generation should have a different method/system/subject to learn, we won’t have any better future if we keep studying what people from previous generation learnt, if they study and invent computer for our generation and we have the same system with them, then our generation won’t invent anything new. So that’s why I think education system is really important for each generation.
So, what kind of education that we need for our generation. I think one of the most important is technology. Technology is really important for our LIFE nowadays, but somehow we still need to do something traditionally and ineffective. For example, we need to make a poster/flyer with our pencil and crayon, which is unnecessary because there are computer software to make that and probably have a better quality. So why we need to keep learning that? We could learn how to make a poster with computer, we learn about composing image, picking color, harmony and more. So, learning technology or with technology is important for ourselves so we can make a better technology or product.
The next important thing is Leadership education. In my opinion, leadership doesn’t need to be the one that keep becoming a leader, but the one that can moves/motivate their group. We have many smart people that has many ideas in their head, but can’t express them because lack of leadership. Or maybe many people that want to be a leader and have a plan for their group that only he/she can lead, but don’t brave enough to do it. So that’s why people that choose to be conducted is increasing, while people with high leadership is decreasing. People that choose to be conducted usually want to be leader or at least have an Idea for their group, but can’t or don’t want to tell it maybe because they are shy, unconfident or maybe just don’t want to be choosen as a leader because his idea. They think people will disagree or laugh at their idea, and end up thinking “it’s a terrible idea”, so they just keeping to theirselves. But who knows? Maybe their idea can make a great impact for their group, or even maybe for the world. So that’s why education about Leadership is important, so many great ideas that can make a better future is delivered and could be realized. Imagine a group full of people that has many idea and has a plan to realize their idea, then they work together to realize each of their idea and those great ideas make a big impact for the future, maybe that’s how/why a brand company can make many variety of awesome stuffs.
And the last, of course it has to be academic education. All I have in mind for a better future is a better technology, that’s why I think Technology and leadership education Is important for a better future. But, we won’t have any of those if we lack of academic education. We can’t make a better technology if we can’t understand basic science and math. Many people think we don’t need to learn science or math because we have computer, while actually this computer was made by science and math. So if we give up learning academic education, it we won’t understand how those technology works, therefore, we can’t make a better and futuristic technology for the future.
Leadership is also affected by academy education. People with lack academic education won’t have a great idea as many as educated person. Because educated person usually have a great curiosty while knowing knowing or at least have an idea how to fulfill his curiosity because they learnt science/math. While people who can’t understand science/math only can think what they want to make, but have no idea how to make it. People with lack academic education also usually don’t have enough confidence or communication skill to persuade others to realize his idea. That’s why Academic Education is very important to achieve those both Leadership and Technology skill, to make a better technology for a better future.
That’s my opinion about education that our generation need to make a better future.
