Finland’s Education System

Finland_Education_SystemAs a country develops and generates capability to support all of its citizens, the requirement to discriminate opportunities based on education levels goes down. What I mean to say here is that in a large country such as India (where the resources are minimal), there is a distinct requirement of having standardised tests such as CAT, IITJEE, etc in order to divide people into different slots.

This division at present is necessary (despite what politically correct activists and politicians might be saying), in order to ensure that the resources available are fully utilized. It’s natural selection at work.

Once the country develops the ability to support all of its citizens (and we are far from that point!), then it would be great to dream of this ideal.


Access to Internet a Fundamental need


I had earlier posted about how developing countries are shifting towards online learning. Little did I think that are educational institutes updating their physical infrastructure at that rapid rate?

Never would I thought that access to internet would be a problem faced by the students in the United States … well … now their learning is hampered because their schools don’t have internet! Seems like a first world problem … but the internet is slowly becoming a fundamental need. Roti, Kapda and Internet!!

Adapting to Online Learning

online learning

One more infographic to share here … it’s interesting to note how pedagogy is changing and how certain education systems (US in this case) are able to adapt faster to this.

In India we have technology oriented innovations in education … companies such as EduComp who have penetrated the Indian education market … yet the pedagogy of a classroom is still vastly remained unchanged.

Miles to go before I sleep.

What Women Want

LinkedIn had done a survey among career women and came out with this brilliant infographic. It’s encouraging to see these trends … stuff such as around half the women surveyed considered their appearances did not play a major role in their career. Was this questionnaire designed by an MCP sexist? Jokes apart, I really like the fact that a majority of the problems faced by women are pretty much the same as that of men.

What Women Want at Work

So, if the answer to this post is what Men want … well, then every one knows that all offices will have a giant screen TV airing cricket/football, a fridge full of beer and a comfortable sofy at every desk!!

Yes, I am still clueless about what they want :-|
