Abstract

Learning in the Covid-19 era requires lecturers and students not to study in the same place. This condition is a new challenge for lecturers and students to continue implementing effective learning using a suitable approach that is blended learning. This research is a preliminary study to determine the difficulties of lecturers in implementing blended learning at Department of Physics Education, FKIP – Universitas Syiah Kuala. The method used in this research is a survey using a questionnaire containing 30 statements. The indicators measured in this study were 9 (nine) indicators from 2 aspects, namely the readiness and skills of lecturers in implementing blended learning in the Covid-19 era. The questionnaire was distributed to 15 lecturers in the Department of Physics Education, and the results of the responses obtained were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The results of the analysis show that 29.23% of lecturers are not ready to apply the blended learning approach because 53.85% of lecturers rarely access the internet and learning platforms to facilitate lecture activities, so they are not used to using it. 44% of lecturers are not yet skilled in using learning platforms which are shown by 46.16% of lecturers having difficulty changing the general appearance of the virtual class, and 46.15% of lecturers have difficulty interacting using the learning platform. These difficulties are the obstacles for lecturers to apply the blended learning approach in lecture activities, so it is necessary to immediately find solutions to help the lecturer difficulties so that lectures in the Covid-19 era continue to run effectively like previous lectures.Keywords: Blended Learning, Covid-19, Lecturer Difficulties, Obstacles

Abstract

The goal of this study is to develop problem-based learning e-modules that can be used in the teaching and learning process. Research is development research, or RnD (Research and Development), using a 4-D model as a development model (define, design, develop, and dessimate). Students in class X MIPA 2 at SMAN 1 Tangse, a total of 30 participants, were the subjects of this study. These research steps begin with learners receiving a posttest, followed by learners receiving a response questionnaire and posttest questions to determine their level of understanding. After receiving electronics modules, learners are given a response questionnaire and posttest questions to determine their level of understanding. Material and media specialists' validation results fall into the decent and very decent categories, respectively, with percentages of 84.85 and 78.4. The average reaction of learners and teachers is similarly high, indicating that the electronics module is appropriate for use in education. With an average N-Gain value of 0.6, there are 13 people in the high N-Gain category, 15 people in the medium N-Gain category, and 2 people in the low N-Gain category. The N-Gain understanding of learners experiencing an increase in material understanding of momentum and impulses by employing electronics module. Electronics module can be observed in the results.

Abstract

The learning process in Indonesia has not directed students to be able to think at a high level which resulted in the quality of education in Indonesia is still quite low. This study aims to determine the effect of the application of STEAM-based learning on students' critical thinking skills. This research is a "pree experimental design with one group pretest-posttest design" study. The population of this study were all students of class XI IPA, totaling 3 classes. Sampling was done by means of simple random sampling so that the students of class XI IPA 1 SMAN 1 Baitussalam were obtained. The data collection technique used is a test question (pretest and posttest). The results showed that the Pre-test score obtained was a minimum of 5 and a maximum value of 50, while the Post-test score of at least 60 and a maximum value of 95, the average improvement of students on the final test was more than the average score of the pretest. The results of data analysis showed the value of Sig. (2-tailed) value 0.000 0.05. This shows that H0 is rejected which indicates that there are differences in students' critical thinking results. This shows an increase in students' critical thinking through the application of a STEAM-based learning approach. These differences can be caused by differences in the learning approaches used, where in the post-test using the STEAM approach, during the learning process students are faced with a problem that must be solved with their respective group friends. In addition, students must be able to connect science concepts with concepts found in everyday life. Based on the results of the research obtained, it shows that there is a significant effect of implementing STEAM-based learning on students' critical thinking skills.
