Be creative in tandem with technology




KUCHING: Teachers must never stop learning to be creative in their teaching in tandem with changes in technology.

A renowned local educationist, Datuk Dr Adi Badiozaman Tuah said that teachers must be a thinker and not only just perform their career based on instructions given.

“Teachers must always think of new possibilities in terms of their teaching, co-curriculum, contents, presentation, and delivering the knowledge to the students,” he told New Sarawak Tribune in a special interview in conjunction with Teachers’ Day celebration on May 16.

He added that teachers must also always be prepared to look into new approaches to teach their students.

“When we look at the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers look into alternative ways to reach their students.

“And we have seen that besides online learning, areas facing connectivity problems, the teachers have taken the extra mile to deliver learning materials to the students at the respective villages or longhouses or ask the students’ parents to collect it ,” he said.

Adi, who is a former State Education Department director said that teachers must also know how to address the teaching-learning processes that must be in different contexts in different places.

“At the same time, teachers must be equally critical and prepared to give suggestions and solutions to problems that they face.

“In line with this, they need to keep on improving and grow themselves professionally,” he said.

He said it was important for teachers to equip themselves with relevant skills and knowledge in the respective subjects that they teach.

“Learning is a lifelong process, and this is relevant among the teachers,” said Adi.
