Below is the view of Abang Ghaf on Innovation. Since I took this from him, I italicized the wording. Happy reading.
Everything is cared to nurture the brains to actively be innovated in all faculties . Nutritionists announce that rice water is nutritional for the brains . We use to hear that practice makes perfect , so does the brains need practices . Besides , the key to designation is the requirement for a conducive environment of innovation to naturally developed .
Schooling and training are worthy for insight in trust for innovative minds toward technological building up . The priority area targeted is at our National schooling of vocational training of the secondary level . With much awareness and concerned , 80% of our work force are dropouts and in great need for proactive trainings for our human resource .
With due respect , our vocational secondary level is in need for overhaul . There are shortfalls of fundamental to ensure of being creative and innovative in their natural course . Lack of contents that could drive off for creativeness and innovative minds at this training juncture is assumed neglect . In absent , these have discouraged and hampered the minds to be sensitive toward of being innovative , creative , lost the element of curiosity and to be habitually challenging thus unproductive .
In referring to specific case about our vocational formal training , if we look at its curriculum , syllabus and practical workshops , the pedagogy is missing to meet the higher form of innovative minds which are in demand and that required initial training at the secondary level . And therefore the technological training is under stressed , they are far behind so thus the minds of the trainees too .
The vocational blue print should be revised and the proactive metrology to be implemented according to technological needs , changes and has had to anticipate for new technological challenges . It should be done 20 years ago . As a result , we find automative mechanic become ' replaced mechanic ' and welders just become robots to welding . They stop at that .
Creative and innovation for minds are fundamentally designation to conduct , in teaching , training and learning . And if the responsible director of the Ministry is just researching on how to have the new blue print posted on the the drawing board , it would take another 25 years before we could see a certified innovative minds in our vocational schools thus our technological industries are dimmed .
In the area of vocational automative , the definition of being innovative is simply the setting up of the right environment . The process of training which allow the trainees to be innovative . Meaning by emphasizing , 70% is vocational and 30% is academic . The 70% of the vocational is divided into two parts . One is learning via computed lab and the other half is the workshops with technological appliances , hands on training for the trainees .
We can just imagine the effectiveness learning via computer . Eg. on automative , here the students can vitalize the total designed engine . They can overhaul the engine and gain fast understanding of their functions , dissect them to parts and place them back . The innovation prevails .
In this program the understand level is elevated . In this process also their extra thinking miles trigger their creativity and innovative . And above all , it is exciting and interesting which create curiosity which is the premise of being innovative and creative at the prime age of the secondary level .
