Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy.Education began in prehistory,
as adults trained the young in the knowledge and skills deemed necessary in their society. In psocieties, this was achieved orally and through imitation. Story-telling passed knowledge, values, and skills from one generation to the next.
