Different countries have different teaching methods and styles. What are the basic differences that you feel both the countries have?
The main difference is of the technologies that they are using. Latest technologies are used by America while it takes some time to reach in India. In America, children are very familiar with the teaching styles of their teachers when they teach them through new technologies while in India they are not so familiar.
In the USA teachers focus more on the extracurricular activities while in India teachers focus on the textbook courses in order to make their students score more.
The main difference lies between theoretical and practical approach.
In India, everything revolves around the books and nothing else. We’re given the logic but are never asked where did the logic come from. We know about How to do it but not Why to do it. We’re tuned to learn things and memorize them.
In America or any other modern country, it usually revolves around the practical aspects that help the child in building his future. Before you know How, you’re supposed to answer why over there. We’re tuned to be inquisitive and then learn things.
