Supposing that our human society intends to acquire and enjoy long-time prosperity, it is advisable for humans to maintain their innovative minds.
Living in an era of information, we are using a variety of technological products, which are based on innovative ideas, such as digital cameras, portable computers and smart phones. These creative inventions bring us great convenience, arouse our enthusiasm for future life, and help our society to move forward. As a matter of fact, intelligent people in large numbers have come to realize the significance of innovation for our social development: without innovation, industries can never be modernized; without innovation, our medical science can never cure so many fatal diseases; and without innovation, there would be no electronic products we use today.
We should bear in mind that innovation does enhance the social, scientific and cultural advancement. Thus, students in schools should be educated to think critically to foster their innovative awareness; scientists should be supported with financial aids to propose innovative ideas and carry out innovative researches. And of course, I, as a college student, am convinced that it is of great necessity for students to propose innovative approaches to enhance their efficiency of learning.
