The first lecture was given by Mejar Jasmy. He briefly explains the concept of technology and innovation in education. Technology can be defined as the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry. Technology is not just tools and machines only. The process of inventing or creating technology involves a lot of ideas, arts, sciences, systems and guides. Meanwhile, innovation is the process of translating an idea or invention into a good or service that creates value for which customers will pay. The application of both technology and innovation in education is a way to improve learning and teaching which will lead to an improvement in education, compatible with the present generation.
From what he explains, I get the idea of the uses of technology and innovation in education. In these generations, many technologies have been created. So it is up to us to make use of the technologies given. For example, a search engine. The search engine is also can be categorized as a form of technology and innovation. In today’s world, the search engine like google is widely used by everyone around the world. It can either be for work, education or leisure. Google has a wide range of information where students and teachers can use to help them with their learning and teaching process. Moreover, all this information can be acquired for free. That is one of the greatest benefits of search engines.
Apart from the topic, Mejar Jasmy mentioned about discipline and ethics. For me, this kind of advice or reminder is much needed to be added in the teaching process as it is a part of a life-long learning session which is very important for students. I can conclude that the course is important for the future teacher as it teaches us to be an innovative teacher for the future generation.
