In many people’s books, ideas and concepts are the rule of life. They solve problems depending on these rules. However, the world changes faster than before as well as in a more complicated way. So I think it is more important for students to learn facts than to understand ideas and concepts.
We are now in a time called “the Information Age”, and our society is constantly changing. Every day we face various problems. Some of these seem to be superficially the same, but the conditions are different. In other words, each case , problem has its specific background. If we solve two problems that seem to be same, using the same policy, the situation may be more difficult. Here is an example to support my point. Cold and flu have the same early symptoms such as headache, cough or dizzyness. But they should be healed using different treatments. If the doctor uses the same method to treat these diseases, one may be healed and the other may be aggravated.
Ideas or concepts do not reflect all aspects of every issue thing. As we all know, ideas and concepts are based on ideal conditions. we can solve a problem using many different strategies =Maybe solving one problem needs a lot of concepts. However, no one can deny the fact that now we must pay mort and attain greater pressure than before. We need to spend more time and energy learning more useful knowledge and skills. Otherwise, we didn't grasp the (will take no advantages of) opportunities when they were passing by. Therefore, more concepts should be learned can only give a lot of pressure to us. On the contrary, remembering the facts is easier than to remember the difficult and non-intelligent ideas or concepts.
Apart from what has been stated above, using ideas or concepts is low efficient, especially when dealing with a problem one is not familiar with. Moreover, using fixed concepts is even impossible. For instance, when we go abroad, we will meet a lot of unimaginable different* things and we always call this a culture shock. The most efficient way to overcome a culture shock is to tell people how to do that instead of telling people why.
To my opinion taking action is better than lingering in why one should do that.
Maybe it can accelerate the process getting into the country.
