31 JU's (trainers) for Innovation were selected from all districts in today's meeting with En Sujak Sarman, Head of Academic Sector, State Education Department. I was one of the four teachers from Kluang. The JPN Johor has finally coordinated the types of innovation competitions for the state but strangely this is different from the "Guru Inovatif" competition held annually. I was probably too vocal in this meeting to withhold any comments as there were serious errors with the evaluation form. Suggestions to correct them were accepted after a long discussion. The are five categories of awards:
1. Anugerah Inovasi Khas:
