Suresh Prabhu Urges Education Fraternity to Recognize Challenges and Respond to Them

Education business is rapidly getting crowded with startups, and edtechs. However, the demands of the future ready skillful student force are still increasing.

To meet the demands, the education fraternity is making efforts to prepare the students and education businessmen to pull their socks up, by including various programs and invest wisely in bringing more changes within the system.

Prepare Students, Future Ready

Union Commerce, Industry and Civil Aviation Minister, Suresh Prabhu, urged the education fraternity to recognize the challenges of higher education and respond to the requirements of the 4th Industrial Revolution so that students of the future can live a life to face the world.

“It is important not just to know how to learn, but more importantly how to unlearn. This will come about by keeping minds open and having an attitude towards continuous learning", he said.

"With the rapid changes in technology, obsolescence is the order of the day. While knowledge is becoming obsolete, it is wisdom that will prevail, he said, adding that education will flourish where innovation is not stifled and respond in a way that helps society."

Future of Learning

R Subramanyam, Secretary, Higher Education, Ministry of HRD, Government of India, outlined the fundamental principles on which the universities of the future would rest – the creation of critical thinking abilities among students, creativity, collaboration, communication and conceptualization of the issues concerning education.

He said that students of the future would need to develop critical thinking to conceptualize, analyze and find solutions to societal problems. Creativity, he said, was the key to thinking out of the box as the problems were becoming far too complex to be dealt with in the traditional ways. Collaboration between students and academia will create new knowledge and two-way communication and developing a conceptual understanding of a wide range of issues would flow from academic liberty and the pursuance of liberal education, he added.
