Education as a Process

Education as a Process

The meaning that comes out of all these discussions is that through education the child’s innate powers are developed according to the needs and values of the individual and the society. Thus, education is essentially a process—the process of developing or bringing out the qualities of the child in accordance with needs and values. The process is a deliberate and purposeful activity, which is carried out to attain the desired outcome or objective. Activities related to education are educative processes. It is a way of learning to the learner and instruction or guidance to the teacher. John Adam called the education process a bi-polar. In this process, two poles are involved. One is the educator and the other is the educand. A learner with a learned and the teacher with a taught. The resultant of this process between this two is education. Here one will teach and another will learn. The activities are interrelated and interdependent.

The modern concept of education defined the process of education and identified three important elements. These are “Educand” or the child who is to be educated:

the “educator” or the teacher who provides opportunities and organizes learning experiences for child education: and the “social setting” or socio-cultural influences or forces in the process of education are carried on.

The relationship among three elements can be considered a “tri-polar process”, where the Three elements i.e. the educand, the educator, and the society are the three essential poles.
