Adult education , distinct from child education , is a practice in which adults engage in systematic and sustained self-educating activities in order to gain new forms of knowledge, skills, attitudes, or values. In particular, adult education reflects a specific philosophy about learning and teaching based on the assumption that adults can and want to learn, that they are able and willing to take responsibility for that learning, and that the learning itself should respond to their needs. Driven by what one needs or wants to learn, the available opportunities, and the manner in which one learns, adult learning is affected by demographics, globalization and technology. The World Bank 's World Development Report on The Changing Nature of Work  argues that adult learning is an important channel to help readjust workers' skills to fit in the future of work and suggests ways to improve its effectiveness. Educating adults differs from educating children in several ways given that adults have accumulated knowledge and work experience which can add to the learning experience. The science and art of helping adults learn,   the practice of adult education is referred to as Andragogy , to distinguish it from the traditional school-based education for children pedagogy.
