According to human needs, education can be divided into three parts: Social or Political education; Spiritual education; Vocational or Technical education. Education that teaches us how to live in a society is called Social or Political education. Education that develops our personality and character may be termed as Spiritual education. Then, education that teaches us how to earn a living is named as Vocational education. Technical education is a branch of Vocational education. By Technical education we mean education dealing with some practical or mechanical art. Technical education includes training in trade, commerce, carpentry, weaving, agriculture, medicine and engineering. Its aim is to provide instruction and training in skills that have a practical utility. It helps us to meet the needs of the industrial age.
Technical education is very important in the modern age. America, France, Russia and China are rich, prosperous and resourceful because of their progress in technical education. It produces engineers, builders, doctors and mechanics who are very useful in an industrial society. It is the only answer to the problems of our expanding economy. It produces doers and workers. These workers make a real and important contribution to the welfare of society. We are able to increase the material resources of our country through Technical education. It promotes the material prosperity and economic advancement. It has a great educational value also as it imparts dexterity, quickness, attention to detail, habit of neatness and order. People begin to have faith in the Dignity of labour. We can save a lot of foreign exchange, if we have our own technical experts....
...Vocational education (education based on occupation or employment) (also known asvocational education and training or VET) is education that prepares people for specific trades, crafts and careers at various levels from a trade, a craft, technician, or a professional position in engineering, accountancy, nursing, medicine, architecture, pharmacy, law etc. Craft vocations are usually based on manual or practical activities, traditionally non-academic, related to a specific trade, occupation, or vocation. It is sometimes referred to as technicaleducation as the trainee directly develops expertise in a particular group of techniques. In the UK some higher technician engineering positions that require 4-5 year apprenticeship require academic study to HNC / HND or higher City and Guilds level. Vocational education may be classified as teaching procedural knowledge. This can be contrasted with declarative knowledge, as used in education in a usually broader scientificfield, which might concentrate on theory and abstract conceptual knowledge, characteristic of tertiary education. Vocational education can be at the secondary, post-secondary level,further education level and can interact with the apprenticeship system. Increasingly, vocational education can be recognised in terms of recognition of prior learning and...

...Evolving TechnicalEducation for the development of Chhattisgarh
Education is central to the Human Resources Development and empowerment in any country and the quality of education is judged by the kind of humans it produces. In the new global economy, the knowledge and skills of a nation's workers is key to its competitive success.
Development of any country or state to a large extent depends on the progress made in science and technology. It has been widely accepted that industrialization is one of the major tools, which shapes national destiny. The qualitative and quantitative improvement in the industrial status of a nation is strongly based on the quality of technicaleducation.
Technicaleducation must be suited to the development in economy, science and technology, and culture of the country and it plays a vital role in promoting their development. Due to development of higher technology and its rapid application in industries, future technicaleducation should be relevant to the needs of industry. With the industrialization of national economies all over the world, it is increasingly important to generate future technical personnel adaptable to the requirements of industry.
Engineering Education cannot serve its purpose, if it merely limits itself to transfer of information from the...

...TechnicalEducation Scenario in India -Impact,
Success Till Now and Challenges
Quite afresh, I engaged in a healthy conversation with my teacher who was very cynical about the condition of technicaleducation in India. She asked me a very simple question- why is a majority of the modern research activity taking place in the US itself and not in countries with much more population like India? I had an expeditious reply to this question in my mind and I quickly said that it's because of the lower literacy rate here. She then did some statistical data analysis for me and continued that in spite of that, India boasts of a larger populace of educated men and women than America and added that this still doesn't concern the research and development comparison between both the countries. I, again, was impetuous in my remark that there are fewer incentives and very less scope in India as compared to that present in the US. I don't know if I was marginally right or not, but she again looked up Wikipedia and told that we had an immeasurable number of technical universities and colleges as compared to the "developed" countries and hence, obviously, humongous workforce to implement proper education. I felt lost with the facts that I was facing. Everything seems so nicely set up and the cogwheels seem to be working quite perfectly, but still the result that comes out of this...
...COMMERCE EDUCATION AND EMPLOYABILITY
It is commonly agreed that education should aim at ‘holistic development’ of the individual. Further, such development should be in harmony with the society and the nature. To quote the great Indian philosopher Sri Aurobindo, education should aim at “all round development of the personality, which includes education of the sense, body, mind, moral and spiritual education.”
The concepts of ‘all round development of personality’, or ‘holistic development’ include all the aspects of development-intellectual, spiritual, moral, economic, etc. However, some philosophers have defined the economic aims of education. Christopher Winch1; a British scholar says ‘education is broadly, although not exclusively concerned with preparation for life or for particular phase of life’. He gave three aspects to this concept of education, which are ‘fulfillment’, ‘civic participation’ and ‘vocation’ and specifies that the individual conception of education, as they can be found in particular societies at particular time, consists of distinct combination of these different aspects.
In order to define the objectives of commerce education, it may be important to go a little into its history. The origin of commerce education can be traced to the 19th century. It started with the teaching of skill based...
...Technical Writing In
University of Phoenix
Technical writing in a corporate environment
Amongst the top skills in a corporate environment, technical writing is the most important. It provides insight while introducing new ideas with easy to follow instructions. Technical writing is widely used to explain tough terminology into simple terms. In a corporate environment,technical writing is highly used to provide support for employees that need assistance in understanding new technology or upgraded software.
Technical writing is communication written for and about business and industry. “Technical writing focuses on products and services—how to manufacture them,
market them, manage them, deliver them, and use them” Gerson (2006). Improving technical writing skills can excel an employee’s career and opportunities in a company.
Making concise and clear presentation of words can give employees’ knowledge when modifications in policy occur. Like many other attributes in writing, technical writing is used to introduce new changes in employee benefits, for example. In today’s corporate environment, companies are creating information packets that explain benefits in a detailed form to eliminate any confusion employees might have. Big corporations are breaking down benefits...
