Education in general is one of the most powerful assets, important and representative for every human being at any level at which they play in society.
Humanity now lives an information overload because knowledge is increasingly leveraged by resource technology, including the information superhighway Internet and plays an invaluable role in the spread of education.
Therefore, if the mid-nineties knowledge information doubled every four years, today we are talking about less than twenty months to find a comparison in the speed with which it handles information these days.
In the industrial era, which officially began between the second half of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, developed a series of concepts towards work and education, whose influence continued long until the late twentieth century, when the era of information appears on the scene, dramatically driven by the digital revolution and electronics, and the global information network.
These concepts are basically the following:
Creating jobs in companies that hold the raising of capital and consumer goods production.
Traditional education where every individual goes through a process of 18 or more years of his life to be economically and socially productive.
The monopoly of education by schools traditional colleges and universities as public and private, who have developed a great deal on a promise to give his students a socially acceptable position and revenues â€œhighâ€ after an investment average individual who represents up to 20 years about $ 50,000 or more, if you consider his entire academic life before being socially and economically productive.
Painful learning where mistakes are punished and student knowledge look for not by conviction or vocation, but mostly by fulfilling a cultural partner.
But the picture above has been radically changed by the advent of the technological revolution, with computers becoming more powerful and effective computing and information network that has made the world a truly global village.
And thanks to this super power of information rapidly, there is a new kind of education: education practice, the benefits are very important in optimizing time critical resource, which man must value and administrate with great wisdom because you can´t recover it if you waste it.
Education practice is defined as â€œthe process of technological resources optimized infuses precise knowledge needed to excel in a specific or determined environment.â€
And the Internet through this education is the ideal niche to fulfill the role that traditional education instead takes many years of research and investment of time and money and can not achieve it.
Of traditional education course, there are great advantages to be highlighted, as the discipline that teaches students, socialization and development of cognitive skills and develops critical in children and youth.
But today there are dropout rates as high as 50% in higher education worldwide, because most students can not study or can not graduate, through a difficult economic situation and the frustration of having to go through a process painful time without resources to achieve a part of a bureaucratic elite that is increasingly competed but less competitive.
Moreover entrepreneurs are people in many cases with little or no formal education culminated college, are the new class leader in information age, and have been built with limited economic resources and social opportunities vast empires exploiting the advent technological resources, and leading companies have developed opportunities that place not as a privilege for a few but as a right associated with any individual who is bold and consistent in your personal and professional initiatives.
From these examples we have real business empires such as Microsoft, Dell Computers Inc, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, thousands of businesses and individuals online that have created job opportunities and development for thousands of entrepreneurs and their families worldwide.
The pillars of modern practical education are:
Access to information at low costs, regardless of race, social status or religion or political partner.
Optimization of time for people to get academic and practical results in their specific needs personal, family and social.
Inclusive and cooperative learning, integrating dynamic tables with different cultures working group level where mistakes are exploited to improve. For example we have the case of postgraduate academic Online, where students interact with an entire global community to compare and discern solutions to problems can work and receive feedback and much wider, that being with a few students at a Local teacher.
Increasing growth in the provision of academic and practical programs to select and participate, operating everything from the comfort of home or office, taking advantage of a broadband connection and computer equipment or portable, or mobile devices.
Mindful of the principle of competitive economic authored Adam Smith in the eighteenth century was masterfully ran the regulatory element of the dominant economic forces, both universities and traditional colleges are taking advantage of this opportunity, knowing that should change gradually but substantially academic processes, making them more accessible and competitive with the information age, otherwise in the face of a global community in their academic processes optimized with billions of users online conectadados can literally disappear academic panorama.
In this section is so great the influence of current technological means that education will suffer extremely radical changes in a span of 10 years or less, the benefit of democratic integration of cultures and academic methods that respond to optimized development of peoples demanding equal participation in education and jobs to help significantly reduce the problems of violence, hunger and inequitable distribution of wealth.
As the transfer of a rigid education, practical education face a semi or non-attendance and has entered a long process of gaining popularity among students and schools, our recommendations for those who continue to derive mainly their economic, personal social and traditional education are:
Open your mind and consider the benefits that provide practical education to its well-known and traditional career developed.
Do not underestimate the resources on-line because the information contained in them is not theoretical but mostly pratical and produces positive results and very fast to transform an entire social, cultural and economic. And keep in mind that this information is not available in traditional schools.
Integrating the methodology online and traditional learning methods to form a strategic alliance that will make the traditional professional (s) in your field leader, personal and social.
Investing in education practice as courses online instant download or physical books, audios, webinars and seminars attend because they offer highly effective and immediate solutions to everyday problems and the cost is much lower compared to traditional education that provides knowledge to solve problems in the medium and long term.
And the cost is much higher and often overkill for many peopleâ€™s pocket.
