 What is Education?

 

  • The act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge,developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life.
  • The wealth of knowledge acquired by an individual after studying particular subject matters or experiencing life lessons that provide an understanding of something.

 

  What is Industry?

 

  • An industry is a group of manufacturers or businesses that produce a particular kind of goods or services.
  • The aggregate of manufacturing or technically productive enterprises in a particular field.

 

  What are different types of Industry?

 

  • Industry can be divided into three main categories, viz Primary, Secondary & Tertiary Industries. Recently Tertiary industry has been sub-divided into a fourth type.
  • Primary Industries
    Extract raw materials (which are natural products) from the land or sea e.g. oil, iron ore, timber, fish. Mining, quarrying, fishing, forestry, and farming are all example of primary industries.
  • Secondary Industries(sometimes referred to as Manufacturing industry)
    Involve the manufacture of raw materials, into another product by manual labour or machines.Secondary industries often use assembly lines e.g. a car factory.
  • Tertiary Industries (sometime referred to as Services industry)
    Neither produce a raw material nor make a product. Instead they provide services to other people and industries. Tertiary industries can include doctors, dentists, refuse collection and banks.
  • Quaternary Industries
    Involve the use of high tech industries. People who work for these companies are often highly qualified within their field of work. Research and development companies are the most common types of businesses in this sector.

 

  What is the use of the Theory of Education?

 

  • Theoretical knowledge teaches and helps you understand why one technique works where another fails. It helps to build the context and set the strategy. Where self-education is concerned theory prepares you to set a direction for your future education. Theory teaches you through the experience of others.
  • Theoretical knowledge can often lead to a deeper understand of a concept through seeing it in context of a greater whole and understanding the reason behind it.

 

  What are the drawbacks of Theory based Education?

 

  • Some people have an inborn talent of remembering everything that read, even if they have read it once. But others have to cram it very hard in order to retain it. And theoretical knowledge may involve lots of mugging up.
  • Doing things practically gives you the better idea of understanding things rather than gaining theoretical knowledge.

 

  What is the use of Practical in Education?

 

  • Practical knowledge helps you acquire the specific techniques that become the tools of your trade. There are some things you can only learn through doing and experiencing. Where theory is often taught in the ideal of a vacuum, the practical is learned through the reality of life.
  • Practical knowledge can often lead to a deeper understanding of a concept through the act of doing and personal experience.
  • Both of the above are important. You won’t survive in any career unless you can bring results and to do that you need practical knowledge. There’s no avoiding it.
  • At the same time learning how to solve a specific problem only teaches you how to solve that same problem again. Practice can only take you so far. Theory helps you apply what you learned solving one problem to different problems.

 

  Importance of Industry in Society?

 

  • Rapid growth of income
    The first and foremost argument in favor of industrialization is that it can provide a base for rapid growth of income. It is because of the fact that that productivity rates are higher in industry than in agriculture. Industries mainly depend on man effort while agriculture is restricted by the limiting factor of the nature. It is also seen that the industrialized nations have a high per capita income.
  • Employment
    With the increasing population, agriculture is unable to provide employment for all. Hence it is very important to set up industries to absorb this surplus labor. Hence industries can solve the problem of unemployment.
  • Exploitation of resources
    Industries are capable of utilizing all the resources present in the economy. They can even make use of scraps and waste materials. Agriculture cannot make use of all the resources.
  • Development of agriculture
    The requirements of agriculture are met by the industries in large. Agriculture requires improved farm machinery, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It also requires storage and transport facilities. All these are adequately provided by industries.
  • Balanced development
    Ours is an unbalanced economy. Our greater dependence on agriculture has made us poor. With the industrialization in the economy this disparity can be removed. If agriculture is the backbone of the economy, industry is the energy.

 

 Role of Industry in National progress?

 

  • Self-sustained growth
    The rapid development of capital goods industries promote the growth of agriculture, transport and communication. It also enables the country to produce a variety of consumer goods in large quantities and at low costs. It also eliminates our dependence on other countries for the supply of essential goods.
  • Nation’s security
    Dependence on foreign countries for defense goods is always risky affair. We do not have good relations with our neighboring countries especially Pakistan and China.
  • Foreign exchange
    India cannot earn adequate foreign exchange from the exports of its primary products. It is because of the fact that the demand for such products is very low in other countries. Industrial exports need to be added to the primary products.

 

  Various roles played by Industry within a Nation & in Foreign countries?

 

  • National prosperity is created, not inherited. It does not grow out of a country’s natural endowments, its labor pool, its interest rates, or its currency’s value, as classical economics insists. Industry along with agriculture helps to increase GDP, national reserves, foreign investment. A nation’s competitiveness depends on the capacity of its industry to innovate and upgrade. This is vice-a-varsa process within a nation and foreign country.

 

  What is Industry culture?

 

  • Industry working culture, is a set of ethics, standard operating procedures, code of conduct and hierarchical management system. It is a work culture based on certain predefined and tested set of principles. The governing body, generally called as management group/ BoD members forms the rules of their respective industry work culture. Every industry has their set of rules for their industry work culture. But, almost all the industries follow same work ethics, according to their surrounding environment, country of operations, local customs, local traditions, and local government standard set for industry.

 

  How Industry culture is different from Educational culture?

  • Industry culture is inclined to have an implementation based strategy, and it refers to the predefined set of rules. Industry work employs handling cutting edge technology. While, Academic culture is inclined towards theory based knowledge awareness and little bit hands on experience.

  Contribution of Education in Industry (In India)

 

  • India is an important educational center in the global education sector. India has more than 1.4 million schools and more than 35,000 higher education institutes. India has one of the largest higher education systems in the world and there is still a lot of potential for further development in the education system.
    India’s online education market size is expected to touch US$ 40 billion by 2017. The RNCOS report titled, ‘Booming Distance Education Market Outlook 2018’ expects the distance education market in India to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 34 per cent during 2013-14 to 2017-18. Moreover, the aim of the government to raise its current gross enrollment ratio to 30 per cent by 2020 will also boost the growth of the distance education in India.
  • Market Size
    The vocational education and training is fast emerging as an important area of focus, as Germany and India enhance their strategic bilateral partnership. One of India’s biggest challenges as well as advantages is its growing young population. India targets creation of 500 million skilled workers in 2022.
    The need to train fresh graduates in new skills and ensure that they remain employable is important since the US$ 118 billion Indian information technology (IT) industry added about 180,000 new employees in 2013-2014, 70 per cent of which were fresh hires, according to Nasscom.
    India’s IT firms are working with academic institutions and setting up in-house institutes to groom the right talent as these companies move to social media, mobility, analytics and cloud (SMAC) technologies. Tech Mahindra’s infrastructure management services academy set up in 2014 has inked partnerships with five universities to hire students trained on a co- developed curriculum.
    Role and Importance of Educational for Effective Growth of Indian Economy;
    Globalization has not only increased completion in world economics but also within and between the education systems. Policies and strategies that drive educational reforms have been adjusted to the new realities by creating structures in education systems that allow assessing comparing and rank ordering national and regional education performances. India is a low income developing country. There is no doubt that nearly one fourth of its population lives in conditions of poverty. Meaning Education for the knowledge based economy has become a buzz phrase in education policy discourse throughout the developed world and the transition economies but also increasingly in developing countries. Typically, education reform that is targeted on serving knowledge based economics emphasizes mathematics and science, information and communication technologies, basic knowledge and skills in literacy and development of interpersonal skills. More over a successful knowledge economy also requires advanced secondary and tertiary education provision able to boost labor productivity, research and innovation.
