Infographic: History of education
The ability to share knowledge is probably one of the main reason we are still populating the Earth. Early humans managed to progress and journey across the earth by exchanging and improving their tools. The more contact between groups, the stronger technology developed.
Sharing any advancement was first done orally and through imitation, and probably not soon enough took the form of a more proper educational system. The whole history of education is a complex one and definitely not fully explain in an infographic, but we tried to showcase you below some of the steps that helped us evolve through the centuries.
