Creating Flowcharts to represent the Education System

“I stand for a different education: a different education where students don’t just understand what they learn, but practice what they learn with understanding.” – Nuno Roque

The evolution of civilization, is arguably, a long-drawn and extended narrative – one fraught with the positive and the negative, the impact of the accidental and the unforeseen, the effects of experiments and creative endeavor, the formulation of systems and methods and protocols that govern social and economic lives of nations, and the outcomes of deduction, observation and assessments. Civilization registers long-term benefits from sustained pace of learning activities, the nuanced transmission and retention of knowledge, the generation and operation of native knowledge systems, as also the creation of different versions of the modern education system.

  • Education: Enrichment from Ideas

Such a mission emerges as a cornerstone of civilizational growth and expansion, and casts a direct effect on the very survival of civilization. This mission can gain from the many ideas and thoughts that arise in the minds of educators, the keen observation of outcomes of operational methods and theoretical constructs practiced in schools and other institutions of higher education, and a continuing drive to improve the quality and scope of formal instruction. Hence, it is imperative that the human species undertakes a regular evaluation of the education system, develops offshoots in learning systems, techniques and processes, and engineers said system to resonate with the ultimate objectives of modern civilization.

  • Re-Imagining Primary Education

Observers have noted that primary education performs a key role in the success of the modern education system. It is possible therefore, to re-design and re-imagine the idea of primary education as a foundational step toward civilizational evolution. A flowchart may prove instrumental in ensuring the success of such ventures. These instances of connected diagram could help human minds to assemble new methods and paradigms of designing primary education ventures. Flowcharts can assist in conducting reviews of current editions of such systems, and point to the locations that can undergo refinements. Subsequently, different editions of flowchart could assist in evaluation of the performance of new techniques, thereby assisting in the emergence of sophisticated, highly functional versions of education system.

  • The Integration Project

Processes of integrating techniques (methods and tools) of traditional/native learning paradigms into modern education system could generate positive developments. This stance, and multiple versions thereof, could help create a vibrant knowledge-driven society that enables continued growth in the trajectory of civilizational advances. The development of such processes – undertaken through designs etched in flow-based diagrams – could add to our awareness of the meaning and various contexts in which instruction is imparted to learners and students. Such processes thus become force multipliers that expand the impact of educational technologies.  Additionally, these processes may output enmeshed versions of local method that emerge as uniquely suited to the learning requirements of various communities in different geographies of the planet.

  • Expanding the Idea of Classrooms

Classrooms represent a foremost paradigm of formal education in contemporary times. The modern classroom is an intelligent manifestation of ideation combined with multiple thought processes marshalled into a unitary concept. In this context, the education system represents an instructor/teacher-led system that promotes rote learning at various levels. It is possible to develop interventions into this paradigm through flowchart-based illustrations and diagrams. These interventions could emerge as multi-teacher learning environments interspersed with the implementation of various self-assessment tools designed for students and learners. In addition, the idea of classrooms could undergo change, wherein groups of students work together to elevate the quality of learning and knowledge assimilation as part of strengthening and reinforcing the sinews of education system.

  • Enhanced Role of Educators

Teachers and instructors may participate in the ongoing evolution of the education system and its operating mechanisms. This stance could forebear an evolution of various methods of instruction, and their subsequent melding into an enlightened multi-method supra-system. An instance of this may emerge when teaching professionals pool their collective experiences to uplift the functional and technical aspects of imparting education to various grades of learners. Such technique could diversify into individual modes of instruction – variously designed for classrooms, workshops, laboratories, tuition classes, refresher sessions, and online learning systems. This version of education system could thus be envisaged as a step toward the pursuit of universal knowledge systems – one that operates irrespective of the constraints imposed by graded hierarchies of modern education.

  • Boosting Technical Education

The development and diversification of technical education could receive the proverbial shot in the arm when educators integrate modern digital technologies into delivery systems and packages. For instance, current modules of technical education could undergo enrichment when instructors provide live guidance as part of diversifying the methods of delivering modern education system. This technique would thus be an evolved extension of the traditional classroom. Further, this method would be experiment that broadcasts technical education to larger numbers of geographically dispersed students/learners. Hence, this version of ‘distance education’ may power the spread of civilization, and boost the availability of educational materials beyond the classroom. Flow-based diagrams could enable (the design and delivery of) such improvements in pursuit of certain objectives enshrined in the avowed agendas of civilizational development.

  • New Modes of Research

Research scholars may invest efforts to develop new structures of academic endeavor as part of pursuing expansion and diversification of the education system. In such scenario, these individuals could ideate through the agency of flowcharts, and subsequently they may formulate new dimensions in their chosen field of activity. Research may include the development of new systems of reviewing information, interpreting data, deriving ideas, and arriving at conclusions. In addition, the narrative of the education system gains heft when researchers embark on voyages of discovery in various academic disciplines. The spaces contained within connected diagrams may aid such voyages, empower research professionals to break new ground, and elevate the quality of research work and allied initiatives.

  • Importance of Assessments

An assessment of knowledge levels acquired by learners/students remains an important aspect of gauging the efficacy of the education system. Such assessment could power a balanced view of modern education, allow educators to design guidelines for future learners, and act as a dashboard that portrays various parameters in the domain of modern academia. Pursuant to this, flowcharts could help to frame various methods of assessing the quality of learning imparted to students, the retention levels of learners, the expanse of knowledge acquired through various (group and individual) learning activities, and the implementation of acquired knowledge by learners of every hue. In addition, teachers and instructors may ideate on methods to implement the findings of assessment as a means to enrich the fabric of education system.

  • To Conclude

Readings of these paragraphs may illuminate our perspectives on the modern education system, and its many points of interaction with spatial constructs such as flowcharts We could imagine the structures and rhythms of variations that may embellish future versions of education methods and systems. Each new structure and rhythm could undergo ideation, development, construction and revision within spaces of connected illustrations etched in expanses of virtual spaces.

Educators and policy makers, on their part, may invest effort to elevate the quality of interventions that elevate the performance of modern education systems. Students, learners and their guardians could offer feedback to enrich the practices underlying the techniques and methods endorsed by education paradigms. Further, members of the citizenry could ideate and develop new inputs that expand the scope of learning systems. These inputs, when introduced into flow-based diagrams, may improve outcomes in education – thereby enabling civilization to attain new progress.
