With the developing of technology, teacher education conferences are increasingly being encouraged to realize more qualified learning skills. These skills later are expected to be able to support learning for students.
Good process skills in learning and being able to present useful, meaningful, and enjoyable learning experiences for students must be possessed by teachers. They must have three literacy points to realize the more capable learning skills.
- Data literacy. It is the ability to read, analyze and use information in the digitalized world. It plays an important role in making a better decision to find out the existing gaps so that the teaching we do is successful.
- Technological literacy. It is the ability to understand how machines work and technology applications. Technological literacy is not a rigid science, but it is flexible in line with technological developments in digital culture.
- Human literacy. It is the ability to understand aspects of humanities, communication and design. They are interrelated so that human literacy cannot be separated from human daily life in interacting with other humans.
As a person who is in the field of education, you have to keep upgrading yourself by learning many things and developing your knowledge as well as your skills. Don’t just stick to old learning methods.
Open yourself to adapt to all developments in the world of education. Join an educational community outside of your current career. Make your involvement a valuable experience by learning with the participants there.
Teacher Education Division, a Leading Community in Teacher Education
