What is education?
To understand the concept of education, we need to start with the traditional kind of education that comes before employment. In primary and secondary school, they teach us various concepts, how to study, think and examine our interests. On this basis, we decide how to continue our studies. We determine our interests and choose a specific faculty. We start to position ourselves on the market, to prepare for a job that interests us and to study purposefully for such a job.
But that is merely the beginning. When we start working, we don't stop learning. We start gaining work experience, which is a learning process that consists of three phases:
- Applying the knowledge we have acquired so far
- Verifying that knowledge and checking whether it is good enough
- Applying feedback from practice, where practice gives us additional information based on which we learn further.
