From the definition learning is acquisition of knowledge or skill through study, experience, observing or by being taught.
Learning has become the part of our life, I consider it be the essential one. Some things we don’t need to learn it is inbuilt like we don’t need to learn what is right or wrong our conscious will answers that for us, let’s take an example if someone is thinking to steal your conscience will tell us that we are in a wrong direction but there are many things which ought to be learnt. A new born will start learning to walk, talk and what not and the learning process has begun in the baby, then the next step is to go to school where it’s taught how to interact with people, learn about the nature, law of nature, great discoveries by great people. Learning is fun process, where you get to know new things and change accordingly.
A quote by Mahatma Gandhi
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
Many people read the facts and there is no thinking process in them, learning is not just to know the facts and figures but the actual part of learning is when the person starts thinking over it. Children go to school to learn but the actual learning is not knowing the facts but thinking new ideas, perceiving knowledge through all senses, and use the learnt knowledge to create something innovative, interpret the learnt thing in their own way, grasp the subject, but todays teaching system lacks this, children are only fed with the facts but creativity is lacking in them.
Albert Einstein’s quote
“Any fool can know. The point is to understand”
Learning is not just limited to humans but animals, machines also learn. Machine learning is for computers where they learn by artificial intelligence. What is artificial intelligence? The tasks which require human intelligence are performed by the computer system through the process of development and by theory. The tasks like decision making, speech recognition etc. Coming out of the world of machines to humans, learning never has an end there is plenty in this world which is to be learnt and which is yet to be discovered.
Keep learning and discover the new you with every new learning.
