Recent years have seen the close connection of technological innovations in the educational educational process, and technological innovations refer to everything that can be adapted to what is new in the educational process, such as technology, devices, modern machines and innovative educational means, with the aim to increase the effectiveness of education and increase the ability of the teacher and learner to deal with the educational process and solve the problem, its problems, and increase its effectiveness in a way that is consistent with the present day knowledge and technological revolution.
Technological innovations are not only technology consisting of tools and devices, but are more general and comprehensive than that. They are a way of working and a way of thinking used in education to work towards achieving its goals by providing creative and innovative solutions to educational problems, and to increase the effectiveness of the teacher and students, and those solutions can be. In terms of material, intellectual or design, technological innovations are classified into two aspects, namely the physical and intellectual aspect, since the physical aspect deals with all technological innovations, which consist of devices or machines used to display content and mountain, while the intellectual aspect consists of methods, strategies and all modern methods used to present Educational content presented to learners.
Which led to its re-employment in all the requirements of the educational process, so that the curriculum became more flexible and effective, and education centered around the student. He has a guide, facilitator and guide for education, designer and encouragement of became the educational. environment and how to deal with it, so that the teacher has become a developer of the students’ self-learning process, which contributes to the effective development of the outcomes of the educational process.
Educational technology innovations relate to the design and management of the educational environment, which enables the process of direct interaction between students and what this environment offers them, of educational options and alternatives that suit their abilities, giving them the opportunity offer to learn self-learning skills. have a natural ability to learn and appear and grow under conditions The development of devices and the development of programs have led to the emergence of designed devices and programs that are used specifically for educational purposes, and these devices and educational material can be used to achieve real development in the field of education, and these basic principles must be available in the principles and foundations on which the individualization of self-learning strategies is based.
Technological innovations should be used to prepare and rehabilitate teachers to be able to use them efficiently and effectively in classroom situations, encouraging them to develop their performance, and providing and building confidence in the importance of using technology in and outside the classroom. Learning through technological innovations leads to increasing the ability to interact and discuss and eliminate boredom during the learning process, and its employment helps to develop thinking to face problems and future challenges, as attention must be paid become the development of the future thinking of learners to meet the future. challenges. For this reason, we find the tendency of contemporary educational trends to pay attention to the need to keep pace with educational systems and interact with the needs and requirements of the age, and the requirements of the future. Modern educational methods must work to create a balanced person who is able to live with the present and is ready to deal with the future.
The use of technological innovations in the educational process can be viewed positively through their impact on all elements of the education system. Among those positive effects we can mention the following:
Changing the educational philosophy: Education is no longer limited to the transfer of knowledge and information from the teacher to the students, and the testing of students in this information within the school. Education, in light of the use of educational technology innovations, is rather available to all individuals of all levels and cultures, and the student has the freedom to learn what he wants and when he wants according to his academic abilities and according to his psychological preparations.
Changing the role of the teacher: the teacher was the main source of knowledge and the focus of the educational process, who carried out the process of indoctrination and controlled students in the classroom, but after the use of technological innovations, his roles and tasks alter. guiding students as they monitor their progress towards achieving desired goals.
Changing the role of the student: the student used to play a negative role in the traditional education systems, limited to receiving information and watching presentations, and after using technological innovations, he became a positive interaction that the position of the active participant. or multimedia, and he deals with various modern learning resources.
Changing the objectives of the curricula: To provide students with self-directed and continuous learning skills, and to cultivate a love of knowledge, how to acquire it and how to use it in the era of the knowledge and information explosion, has one of the most prominent and important general objectives of the curricula.
Therefore, the integration of technological innovations and their use in education has become a necessary and essential requirement for the improvement and development of educational outcomes. As these innovations allow for increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of education with less effort and better quality.
