Difference Between Education and Learning

educationEducation vs Learning

Education can be said to be a process through which a society passes on the knowledge, values and skills from one generation to another. Learning can be defined as the acquiring of new skills, knowledge, and values.

Both learning and education has a great influence on the mind and character of an individual. However, learning is the basic instinct possessed by all individuals, and, on the the other hand, education is acquired by individuals.

Education is the process of imparting knowledge, values, skills and attitudes, which can be beneficial to an individual. On the contrary, learning is the process of adopting knowledge, values and skills.

Learning is said to be an ongoing process. An individual is always learning, from his birth till his death. Education is something that one gets at some point in their life. Another thing that can be said, is that learning is an informal process, and education is a formal process.

Education is something that an individual gets from an outside source. On the other hand, learning is something that evolves in the inner self. Education is something that one gets from a school or university; education is related to classroom learning, and some other set standards. On the contrary, learning evolves at the personal level, for which there are no set standards. A tutor imparts education, whereas an individual learns from his surroundings.

Learning is knowledge gained through experience, and education is knowledge gained through teaching. Education can be said to be well organised, whereas learning is something that is related to an individual’s perception.

  3. According to Hinduism, Goddess “Saraswati” is the Archetype for Education, Learning, Arts and Wisdom. She is especially worshipped on the last three festival day of “Navrati” which literally means “Nine Nights”. On each of these 9 sacred nights, different manifestations of Mother Goddess or Shakti is worshipped. Today is the 8th day belonging to Goddess Saraswati Mata and is called Maha Astami or Ashwin Shudda Astami.
