The review of the application of Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) is based on the concept of a learning format that involves the delivery of lessons content in the laboratory, simulations and hands-on experience by students in conducting technological innovation. This study was conducted to determine the level of application of TEAL among students to help improve the understanding of the students so as to enhance their creativity and innovativeness as well as to provide facilities for the application of TEAL in the laboratories of the Faculty of Technical and Vocational Education (FTVE), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn, Malaysia. The study sample consisted of 227 students from among 518 undergraduate students from the FTVE Semester 1 2014/15 Session. Six laboratories at the Department of Professional Education (DPE) were used for this study. The determination of the sample size for this study was based on the strata sampling method of calculation. The study instrument was quantitative in nature, whereby a questionnaire was used to obtain data from the respondents. The questionnaire was designed using a five-point Likert Scale. The data obtained were analysed to obtain the mean score, standard deviation and correlation. The results showed that the level of the application of TEAL in practical learning is high, the application of TEAL to assist in improving the understanding so as to enhance creativity and innovativeness is high, and the provision of laboratory facilities at the FTVE in helping to create a TEAL learning environment is high. Meanwhile, the hypothesis of the study showed that there is a moderate relationship between the level of application of TEAL and the understanding of students in enhancing their creativity and innovativeness. On the whole, TEAL should be implemented to help improve the students’ understanding. In order to enhance the creativity and innovativeness of students, the study found that instructors and students must together apply TEAL optimally in teaching and learning activities.
