Emergence of digital technology, greater, faster and wider diffusion of knowledge and easier and cheaper access to information have resulted in certain compulsions in the field of education. Learning can no longer be limited to a structured process. We have to move beyond the frontiers of explicit curriculum, institutional learning and time-bound knowledge acquisition. The consequence will be to break the spatial and temporal structures. One of the purposes of education is to produce workers who will take up all kinds of useful work including manual work. We are at the moment standing at the threshold of a revolution – in economy, values and education.

Articles included in this book shed light on various aspects of education, and will be of interest to educators and educational administrators.
My involvement with educational activities in various capacities – as an educator, administrator and trainer – for over 40 years has strengthened my belief that one of the purposes of education is to produce workers who will take up all kinds of useful work.

We can expect that in the changing world order all the dimensions of life will be inevitably affected. It is for the educators and educational institutions to provide settings for the all-round development of the personality of the pupils along with a positive inclination towards an appreciation of cultural heritage, concern for the environment, a creative outlook and a futuristic perspective.
During my long journey on the road to educational adventure, I’ve written some articles and presented papers at various conferences and seminars. This book, which is a collection of some of these articles, is an attempt to share my thoughts and experiences with educators at various levels.
I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Karin Hamilton Jacobsen, Sophie Tergeist and their team at bookoon.com for publishing several of my books on various topics, including this one.
