This article is about my proposal on facing skepticism and optimism in Obama’s commitment to be a problem solver in facing the issue of unity within diversity among the west and the east part of the world. My proposal is of course based on the critical analysis of Obama’s speech at Cairo University, 2009 supported by some comments of political actors that have been published through electronic and printed media. During the American Presidency’s election (2008), an ex Chairman of Muhammadiyah Centre Amien Rais at once Metro TV’s interview ever reminded the Indonesia citizen not to be over optimistic and over pessimistic to Obama’s competency in making unity among diversity especially toward Islamic perception in the world. Amien’s comment of course derived from the Obama’s silence in looking at Israel’s barbaric holocaust to Palestinians during three months before the end of George’s Bush Presidency. The world communities showed how Israel neglected the world’s voice even it came from the United Nation Organization, the Israel’s army continually killed thousand people consisting of woman, man, kids and youngster by using sophisticated war weapons in responding traditional rocket of Palestenians who have been struggling for getting peace life at their own land.  Seeing this it is warmly understood why Amien suggested Indonesian citizen as a big amount of Islamic world to be rational instead of emotional in waiting the Obama’s step of actions.

An Idea Towards Creative School in Indonesia

  1. A. INTRODUCTION

This article is originally inspired from the student’s written assignment at Oxford Brookes International Centre for Publishing Studies (Clarke P.D. Johnson, 1990) entitled “Think Publishing Think for All”. Furthermore, this article is also dedicated to the Indonesia Teacher Congress (2008) theme “Think Globally Acts Locally”. I can say that these two statements supposed to be the icon of motivation dealing with the effort of developing and empowering the writing capacity not only for teachers but also people as a whole. In relate to this view, I would first comprehensively portray by showing that publishing as potential and the most important part of supporting the growth of creative class in Indonesia.

Now technology is used not only for business but also for educational purpose. Ballenden (1984) approves that computer will increasingly penetrate all areas of life, including education. Maddison (1983) portrays the education technology and the communication technology as two sides of the same coin. The newest one is CALL that has been used by the teachers particularly for the language teaching. According to Brandl, 1991 and  Hartoyo, 1993:25, 1994; and  Petermandl, 1980; and Davis, 1993,  there are four advantages of using CALL as the teaching tools, such as its interactivity, its usability or  flexibility.
