I made a statement that “Education is Power“; a colleague quickly rebutted me, “Knowledge is Power“! Then it occurred to me, that there are no wrong answers. Knowledge, learning, and gained experience, are the natural byproduct of education. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines education as the action or process of educating, or of being educated. Education in our society comes from many directions during our journey from womb to tomb, such as:
- School of hard knocks learning from the lessons of life.
- Someone mentoring you, building into your own personal body of knowledge. Learning quantifiable levels of experience, and understanding that comes about by know-how of others.
- Brick and mortar learning in schools. School from nursery to elementary, and onto middle schools. Continuing to high school, and advancing to a college education. What also falls into the category of brick and mortar learning is trade, and service schools.
About 1899, higher education embraced the correspondence process with beginning with the London University Correspondence College. The correspondence trend took hold here in the United States at Rutgers Correspondence College in 1918. With the advancements in technology, personal computers, and the birth of the Internet. Advances in technology have advanced the Internet’s “Online” Education processes, providing endless education opportunities to people no matter where they live. Today the need to leave near a college is no longer a prerequisite.
Education is Power, knowledge, learning, and gained experiences are the natural byproduct of education. The spongy gray-matter we call a brain, our living connected personal computer, design to record educational processes throughout are lifetime. Our brain has only an OnButton, and the living recording is a collective learning process, with one more inspiring moment after another.
