Educationists have realised this thing and now they are trying to create syllabus and school/college courses based on practical considerations. Until unless there are practical considerations the skill level of the students will not increase. If skill level does not increase then students will be a failure in their future career and lives.
We have to design courses which are a combination of academic courses and technical courses something like amalgamating a class 11 and 12 course with ITI training. Then only we can get a skilled student as the outcome of this new process.
Knowledge is power.

Even this challenging situation would ease
I did my M.Sc in 1980. But the examples given by my Professors those days are still in my mind and I remember them. simply giving definitions and telling the meanings may not create interest in students to learn. The way how the teacher explains and how he connects the theory to the incidents or actions we take day today in our lives.
But many teachers these days are not giving importance to this aspect. An Engineer should have hands-on experience and his practical work in the workshop only will make him a good Engineer. He may be very good at the theory and he may be able to byheart the same and reproduce the same in the examinations. That is not what we expect from engineers
