Abstract

ABSTRACT: The implementation of new curriculum into the teaching of English in Indonesia requires new ways of doing classroom practices. This article is intended to prtesent the result of a research conducted by a team of researchers (Suherdi, Yusuf & Muslim, 2007) in an SMA (Sekolah Menengah Atas or Senior High School) in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia to ascertain the effectiveness of the use of quality pedagogic language in improving students’ achievement in English. For that purpose, an experiment has bee done in a first grade class. Using a quasi-experimental design, the class has been taught using the language thus far used by the teacher in the first six meetings, and using the quality pedagogic language in the following six meetings. Prior to the first meetings, a pre-test was conducted to ascertain students’ learning achivement before the treatment. Then, a post-test was conducted at the end of the experiment. The result of the data analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the pre-test and post-test means in the English competence, and no difference in those of their effective factors. Possible explanations to these unlinear patterns of findings have been presented and relevant recommendations have been given both for theoretical and practical aspects of English teaching, especially in schooling system.KEY WORDS: Pedagogic language, teachers’ questions, feedback, pauses, discourse analysis, affective factors, and teaching of English.About the Author: Prof. Dr. H.

Abstract

Various informations and knowledge including English lesson can easily be accessed. It gives a large opportuniy to the students to take benefts from the use of technology to up grade their English ability. However, most of EFL students seem only use technology for entertainment needs rather than for learning English. Therefore, the objectives of this research are to investigate the kinds of technology tools used by high school students and their beliefs toward the use of technology in English lesson. Mix method approach is used in this research to gain more comprehensive and representative data. The results show that there are eight activities that involve fve kinds of technology that the students frequently used. Those tools are MP3 player, internet browser, cellphone, social networking site, and television. All respondents agree that the use of technology in English lesson is effective. Some advantages of using technology in English lesson appear in this research. However, some barriers or problems also found. The most disturbing barrier faced by the students is the access to internet. They also lack of information of useful technology tools which are possible to be used in English lesson. Abstrak Berbagai informasi dan ilmu pengetahuan termasuk pelajaran bahasa Inggris dapat diakses dengan mudah. Hal itu memberikan kesempatan yang besar pada siswa untuk memanfaatkan teknologi guna meningkatkan kemampuan bahasa Inggris mereka. Namun kebanyakan siswa EFL sepertinya lebih cenderung memanfaatkan teknologi untuk sekedar hiburan daripada untuk mengasah bahasa Inggris mereka. Oleh karena itu, tujuan penelitian ini adalah untuk menginvestigasi jenis-jenis teknologi yang digunakan oleh siswa SMA dan persepsi mereka terhadap penggunaan teknologi dalam pelajaran bahasa Inggris. Pendekatan mixed method digunakan dalam penelitian ini untuk memperoleh data yang lebih komprehensif dan representatif. Hasil penelitian ini menunjukan bahwa ada delapan aktiftas siswa yang melibatkan teknologi yang sering mereka gunakan. Yaitu MP3 player, internet browser, telepon seluler, situs jejaring sosial, dan televisi. Seluruh responden setuju bahwa penggunaan teknologi dalam pelajaran bahasa Inggris sangat efektif. Beberapa keuntungan pemanfaatan teknologi dalam pelajaran bahasa Inggris ditemukan dalam peneitian ini. Akan tetapi beberapa kendala juga ditemukan.

Abstract

Lack of teachers? understanding in students? learning styles and their teaching could cause unfacilitated teaching methods for example through the use of traditional lecturing methods. This issue brings the importance of this research objective to investigate teachers? perceptions about learning style, their teaching, and the applied methods in the classroom. This study uses a quantitative research approach that is the analysis of learning style types for different students at different grade levels. To find out the perceptions of English teachers in this study, information was collected through 20 closed questions with data analysis to find out how the learning style influenced the teaching learning process of 28 English teachers. The findings of this study suggest that teachers? understand about students? different learning styles, so they adopt their students? learning styles to their teaching. The last, teachers agree to use group discussion rather than lecturing methods by integrating ICT. In conclusion, teachers? perception on students? learning styles can increase their awareness to design teaching methods that differentiate students? learning styles. Abstrak Kelangkaan pemahaman guru mengenai gaya belajar siswa dan bagaimana cara mengajarnya yang tepat dapat disebabkan oleh metode mengajar yang tidak bersifat fasilitatif, misalnya masih berupa perkuliahan tradisional. Oleh karena itu, penting untuk meneliti persepsi guru mengenai gaya belajar, cara mengajarnya, dan implementasinya di kelas. Penelitian ini menggunakan pendekatan kuantitatif yang fokus pada beragam gaya belajar siswa pada kelas-kelas yang berbeda. Infomasi diperoleh dengan memberikan 20 pertanyaan tertutup untuk mencari tahu bagaimana gaya belajar memengaruhi proses pembelajaran di kelas Bahasa Inggris (28 guru). Penelitian ini menemukan bahwa guru memahami keragaman gaya belajar siswa, sehingga mereka mengadopsi gaya belajar siswa dalam pengajaran mereka. Guru juga sepakat menggunakan kelompok diskusi ketimbang perkuliahan tradisional dengan mengintegrasikan Teknologi Informasi dan Komunikasi (TIK). Dapat disimpulkan bahwa persepsi guru terhadap gaya belajar siswa meningkatkan kepedulian mereka dalam mengembangkan metode mengajar yang beragam sesuai keragaman belajar siswa.

Abstract

This study was inspired by previous studies of how students’ learning influences their learning beliefs and, in turn, their strategies. Unfortunately, few studies concern learners’ conceptions of learning, in particular in learning English, and paid less attention to the senior high school students level. With the intention to identify Islamic senior high school. Interviews and both close and open questionnaires were used to collect relevant data. To identify students’ conception, Purdie and Hattie’s COLI items were used; and Oxford’s SILL to identify learning strategies. Data collected from the close questionnaire were analyzed by quantifying the frequency and the average of particular issues, which include the preference of students' learning conception and learning strategies. Meanwhile, data from interviews and open questionnaire were analyzed using Miles and Hubberman’s (1994) framework of qualitative data analyses. Overall, data analyses results showed that, in terms of their conceptions, most students conceived learning as a duty—in order to able to make their parents happy, to serve the community with their knowledge, and most of all, as a way to show their devotion to Allah the all mighty. In addition, most students favored metacognitive learning strategies in learning English. This study came to the conclusion that although the tendency of students’ conception of learning English was at the surface level of learning, most of the students used relatively complex and high-level strategies when it came to their English learning process as they used metacognitive strategies.

Abstract

Students’ learning engagement (SLE) has been the focus of educational research at least since the 1990s. Studies have been conducted using various methods and data analysis approaches and frameworks. However, reviews on related literature show that thus far there is no synergistic multilayered framework of analysis that has been developed and utilized. In the meantime, understanding SLE using discrete and separated framework is by no means conclusive. Hence, it is reasonable to argue that synergistic multilayered framework is imperative if conclusive result is being targeted. For this purpose, the writer has developed an alternative framework, called SMSLEFA, standing for Synergistic Multilayered Students’ Learning Engagement Framework of Analysis. This paper will explicate how this framework of analysis works as well as describing the nature of SLE in an English as a foreign language (EFL) teaching. To achieve these objectives, a sample of EFL teaching in an Indonesian context, involving a teacher and his 24 students, has been purposively selected. The analysis shows that SMSLEFA has successfully explicated the SLE in a synergistic multilayered way and described the intricacy of the SLE in the class under study, and that SLE in the teaching-learning process has been successfully developed through the interwoven network of K1- (teachers’ explanation) and Ds1 (teachers’ invitation to perform communicative activities)-initiated exchanges, and the support of other kinds of exchanges. This interaction pattern encourages the development of synergistic combination of C1 (remembering text elements) and P2 (manipulating model texts) processes as the dominant processes, leading to the production of T (text)-level communication as the most frequently processed throughout the teaching-learning process.

Abstract

Industrial revolutions always bring with them radical changes and, with various degrees, disruptive effects on the existing or ongoing technologies. In this conjunction, radical changes in doing education are now forthcoming, and some traditional ones are being disrupted. Many proposals are now being introduced to respond to the demands of the era. In relation to the teaching of English, the writer proposed a model, called SMELT I 4.0 DE, standing for a Synergetic Multilayered English Language Teaching for Industry 4.0 and Disruption Era. While the effects of each layer of the model (ICTC, SRLI, and TVCD) on students’ ELT learning have been extensively reported, those of the layers in a synergetic whole are not yet well-investigated. Hence, a study on the use of SMELT I 4.0 DE is theoretically motivating and practically enlightening. For the very reason, a one-semester pilot project implementing the model in an English as a foreign language (EFL) class in Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia Senior High Lab School has been conducted in the first semester of 2018/2019. This paper is intended to present findings from the aforementioned SMELT I 4.0 DE pilot project. The data were collected through questionnaires, interviews, document analysis, and observations from a class of 29 students. It is shown that ICTC has been successful in (1) increasing students motivation and engagement, (2) giving them positive experience in utilizing students digital devices for educational purposes, and (3) encouraging students creativity; SRLI has triggered students self-regulation in planning, doing, and assessing their learning, self-selection of learning focus and materials, and strategies; and TVCD has enhanced students learning through self-discipline, honesty, confidence, collaboration, communication, and hardworking. In conclusion, the implementation of SMELT I 4.0 DE has resulted in significant progress in all aspects of students’ learning under study.

Abstract

Vidio gim memiliki sejumlah nilai untuk pengajaran di kelas seperti menyediakan lingkungan multimodal dan lingkungan dengan permasalahan yang dapat dieksplorasi. Sekitar 183 juta pemain bermain gim di AS, dan sekitar 17 % dari populasi dunia terlibat dalam aktivitas bermain gim. Para peneliti telah mencoba memanfaatkan permainan untuk pendidikan saat ini. Namun, penggunaan pembelajaran berbasis-gim masih baru dan perlu diuji. Pemanfaatan gim untuk pengajaran di kelas dipertanyakan karena karakteristik permainan yang lebih bersifat menghibur daripada belajar. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui bagaimana siswa mempersepsikan pengalaman belajar dalam pembelajaran berbasis gim. Penelitian ini dilakukan di perguruan tinggi dengan 24 peserta. Mereka belajar menulis narasi melalui pembelajaran berbasis-gim. Pada penelitian ini, gim dibangun khusus dalam platform HTML5. Para siswa harus terhubung daring untuk mengakses permainan. Setelah melaksanakan pembelajaran, kuesioner dan wawancara disebarkan. Kuesioner mengadaptasi teori flow untuk mengukur pengalaman belajar. Hasilnya menunjukkan bahwa siswa dalam keadaan flow ketika belajar dengan menggunakan metode berbasis-gim. Mereka tidak memiliki pengalaman berbasis-gim sebelumnya, dan mereka merasa belajar menulis melalui GBL itu menyenangkan, menantang, serius dan mudah diikuti.

Abstract

Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk meneliti jenis feedback tertulis yang diberikan oleh guru pada tulisan siswa sekolah menengah atas kelas sepuluh di SMAN 1 Sukatani tahun pelajaran 2019/2020. Instrument yang digunakan adalah dokumen analisis untuk meneliti jenis feedback tertulis yang diberikan oleh guru bahasa Inggris pada hasil tulisan siswa kelas sepuluh jurusan Ilmu Pengetahuan Sosial (IPS) dan Ilmu Pengetahuan Alam (IPA). Temuan mengungkapkan bahwa kedua guru menggunakan feedback tertulis yang berbeda pada tulisan siswa. Guru yang mengajar di jurusan IPA cenderung menggunakan feedback tertulis langsung dan guru yang mengajar di jurusan IPS menggunakan jenis feedback tidak langsung. Dapat disimpulkan alasan perbedaan jenis feedback tertulis yang digunakan karena guru yang mengajar di jurusan IPA berpendapat bahwa feedback langsung lebih rinci dan lebih cepat dipahami siswa. Sedangkan guru yang mengajar di jurusan IPS berpendapa bahwa dengan memberikan feedback tertulis tidak langsung dapat mendorong siswa untuk berfikir dan membuat siswa memiliki keingintahuan yang lebih tentang kesalahan yang mereka tulis dan siswa bisa menanyakannya ke guru.

Abstract

The quality of findings and discussion (F D) section in a research article is crucial to elucidate the results of a particular inquiry and to situate the significance of the results in the body of knowledge through publications in scientific journals. Previous academic genre analysis has generated several models to help novice writers develop the rhetorical moves of the F D sections across disciplines. However, the study on the quality of the rhetorical moves in the undergraduate EFL students’ research articles is still scarce. Hence, this study seeks to examine the manifestation of rhetorical moves in the findings and discussion sections written by Indonesian undergraduate EFL students. A total of 113 unpublished ELT research articles from a state educational university in Bandung was selected as the target corpus. AntMover 1.10 was employed as the analysis tool. The top-down approach was carried out to obtain the existing rhetorical structure using Ruiying and Allison’s (2003) framework as the guideline. The bottom-up approach was used to scrutinize the linguistic realizations of the rhetorical moves. The findings demonstrated that, in the move level, most of the students’ F D sections had manifested the four moves, i.e., providing background information, reporting results, summarizing results, and commenting on results. However, in the step level, a number of F D sections did not provide detailed information regarding the sequence of the findings presentation, the analysis procedure to obtain the findings, the explanation for the findings, and the highlight of the significance of the findings. The randomized rhetorical patterns were also dominant. It can downgrade the clarity and rigor of the F D sections. Despite that, the linguistic realizations of the moves, particularly the tense and sentence voice, mostly conformed to the norms. The findings may serve as a reference to develop the teaching materials of English for research publication purposes (ERPP).

Abstract

The fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0) marked by artificial intelligence and cyber-physical systems has transformed the landscape of education including English literacy instruction. Some literacy educators claim that the success of students’ today as millennial kids (Gen-Zs) and future employees has been linked to digital literacy. This term is defined as the skills associated with using digital technology to enable users to locate, organize, understand, evaluate and create information and using those skills to solve problems in technology-rich environments. This study attempts to investigate the extent to which multimodal pedagogy helps improve students’ digital literacy skills in an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) setting in a vocational higher education. A theoretical multimodal semiotic approach along with multiliteracies pedagogy is served as the overarching guideline in the overall instructional procedures grounded specifically from the principles of learner-centeredness, constructivist learning, and social interaction. A qualitative case study approach was adopted to provide an in-depth explication and analysis of students’ literacy development. Data collection included classroom observations and students’ digital artefacts. In the course of the study, the students were engaged in the creation of two digital projects of different genres: digital information report in the form of text-image creation and digital persuasive talk in the form digital video production. The key findings of this study suggest that multimodal pedagogy is an effective instructional method for digital literacy learning in that several aspects of digital literacy had proven to be significantly improved.
