The effectiveness of learning can be known when the learned subject is implemented in a successful manner. Although there exams and test there are just mere tests to know more about the students’ memory power. The real test comes when during the implementation phase. In the olden ages everything was taught practically and tested the pupil’s skills and knowledge. But in the recent year practical tests are very limited or none in many cases making students vulnerable. This is why many students lack industry expertise and so many engineers are not able to make it to the jobs. Our colleges churn out lakhs of engineers of them whom only a few hundred are eligible for the industry and a lot of the remaining needs hours and hours of training even after receiving their graduation degrees. This clearly puts forward that there needs a revamp in our educational systems and make it more practical rather than a memory exercise. The current education system has become a mere rabbit race rather than developing future engineers for the society.
The testing of students and the examinations in current educational system needs a drastic change and more practical tests must be implemented to make our graduate more employable quickly. For this there needs to e a change from grass root levels and the initiative must come from parents. While practical learning not only helps students in learning new things, it also leaves standard mark on the memory of the kids thereby making them more knowledgeable. The same systems must be carried throughout the educational years till they get employed. The real gap between the industry and the eligibility of the students must be reduced and this can be done by more practical training only.
Although learning comes from books, it should not stop there itself. This book learning must be taken to next or higher level of practical learning. Ask the kids or students to practically implement and showcase them to other students which will surely leave a positive mark in the memory of the students. The necessary requirements for the practical learning must be made available in schools and every student must be given an opportunity to prove their talent. This will help them get jobs immediately and also helps organizations in saving time and money. It is not just for the advantage of the industry but also to help the students that practical learning is mandatory.
