A Philosophical View: Proposal for New Age Learning | Chapter 05 | Current Research in Education and Social Studies Vol. 2
Learning is to be a joyous activity, not a forceful one. But in the present education system learning is no more joyful. It imposes on the little brains a lot of pressure and anxiety. Hence, in an age when a child has to live freely, play, dream and enjoy the beautiful nature they are blown away with lack of curiosity, creativity, love and happiness. Hence, led to the need for a study. The study is mainly undertaken to find out approaches for a learner’s friendly education by following some of views of great thinkers on education all over the world. Some of the approaches suggested in the new age learning are present in some of the countries but not all together. The proposed new age learning approaches might be difficult to practice in the present day but not impossible. The need for a happy society, with all the curiosity and creativity, free from health issues are the centre of my study. The recent study revealed that the schools in India like Isha home schools, Rishi Valley schools and Puttaparthi Sai Baba schools are aiming at the overall wellbeing of the enrolled children.
