Education beyond Knowledge and Skills

Education as a national system started around the world only in mid-19th Century. It started at the high time of industrialization, for manpower training. Since, it has been an economic discourse, concentrating on knowledge and skills, for jobs. Society has changed. In particular, the workplace is undergoing overhauling changes, very much because of the change in the economy and the modes of productions. Jobs now mean very different things. Among others, even front-line workers have to work in teams, to directly face clients, to make decisions, to face risks, dilemmas and temptation. It’s simply not sufficient to feed young people with specific knowledge and skills, and to end formal education with a paper credential. It is even seen as insufficient to aim at competencies, which is more related to performance, and does not include values. There is therefore increasing attention around the world to “social and emotional learning”, or in other names. However, such learning takes a different mode, which would require experiences beyond classrooms, beyond school, beyond cities, and often beyond one’s own national borders. Such learning is often holistic and implicit, and is achieved beyond formal teaching. There are examples from many countries.
