SCHEMAS- THE STRUCTURE OF SOCIAL KNOWLEDGE

As we gain experiences with particular type of social institution, we develop rules how to behave in those situations. when an individual travels by airplane for the first time, there is initial confusion about where to go in the airport. what to do with his/her luggage, how to act towards flight attendants and so on. with in experiences the traveler learns the “rules” for checking in, boarding the plane, stowing carry on items, ordering foods and drinks, interacting with seat-mates, and the likes. Once acquired, these rules prove to be applicable in airports and on airplane almost anywhere in the world. The set of rules we developed for airplane travel illustrates how past experience became structured knowledge for use in processing new social information. Such knowledge structure are known as Schemas. Schemas are sets of rules or features that represent what we know about categories of objects or events in general.

The most important thing in my life is moral values & respect for friends, womens, elders and for minority population. I believe in diversity and change. I love to discuses issues related to democracy, right and freedom of people to access health, education, justice and other social services. My future plan is to provide consultancy and mentorship in the areas of my expertise for low and middle income countries especially in Sub-Saharan Africa and Middle East.
