The revolution was marked with the transition to a new manufacturing process in Europe and the US in the period from 1760 to between 1820 and 1840. the transition shifted the hand production techniques to machines, new chemical manufacturing, and iron production processes, the increased use of steam power and water power, the development of machine tools and the rise of the mechanized factory system.
The industrial revolution also leads to the growth of population.

Though there have been many developments in technology, they are not enough for bringing any revolution in the education system. There are inequalities in different educational systems depending on money, class and somewhere it can be caste too. The question of how to fulfill the shortage in education is a big problem in today’s time. The issues belong to both the sides, the supply, and demand. The problem with supply is quality and quantity. Also, there has been a global scarcity of professional teachers who can deliver the knowledge which is important for a child to adapt.
On the demand side, the students are under qualified, which means they are incapable to attract socially and are not flexible for a professional environment.
The focus of today’s learning is how to bring change which also brings the challenge of missing out the real learning as well as grabbing the opportunities.
Across most parts of Africa, India, and Asia, there have been some strong movements to access better quality knowledge.
