Abstract

Social distancing and physical distancing policies have been implemented in many countries for some time in the face of a COVID-19 pandemic. The new policy that has been adopted by many countries is "New Normal". New Normal is a scenario to accelerate the handling of COVID-19 in health and socio-economic aspects. One of them is the Government of Indonesia has announced plans to implement new normal scenarios by considering epidemiological studies and regional readiness. With the implementation of New Normal, education will be run again according to the health protocol. New Normal policies in education must also be in line with instructions issued by The United Nations Agency for Child Welfare (UNICEF). UNICEF has issued guidelines for countries that want to reopen teaching and learning activities in schools. The guide consists of three stages, namely before opening, entering the opening process, and when opening has been carried out. Research on the planning, preparation, implementation, and evaluation of New Normal in the field of learning and teaching needs the attention of all parties, including academics. The results of research and publications on the impact of New Normal in the field of learning and teaching are believed to be beneficial in the field of education.

Abstract

The purpose of this research to analyze profile students’ problem solving skill and the implementation of assisted guided inquiry at senior high school. The type of research is used the preliminary research method with data collection techniques such as tests and questionnaires. The data are obtained, analyzed descriptively qualitatively. The results of this study show that only a few students can work on the material using problem-solving strategies (A-Assessing the problem (identifying principles to be used in problem-solving), C-create a drawing (translating words in the form of pictures containing about problem-solving instructions), C-conceptualize strategy (outlining the steps that will be used in solving the problem), E-executing the solution (applying the formula to solve the problem by the steps) and finally S-scrutinize the result (giving a level of confidence and give a reason) in solving dynamic electricity problems. Totally of the students, five students had low problem-solving skills, and 25 students who had moderate problem-solving skills. Totally of the students, five students had low problem-solving skills, and 25 students who had moderate problem-solving skills. The lowest problem-solving strategy value is at point S (scrutinize the result). Implementation of learning models provided is not ideal so that it causes students to be less active so that problem-solving skills are lacking and no laboratory supports the learning process. Students are not introduced to the existence of a virtual laboratory (PhET) as a laboratory replacement. So to improve students' problem-solving skills required appropriate learning methods.

Abstract

This qualitative research was motivated by our experiences while being an international student in Taiwan. We met with four Indonesian students who move to Taiwan because of their parents are postgraduate students. They were four elementary students who were studying in a primary school in Hualien County as a research participant. They have been in Taiwan for around six months. Through an in-depth interview and documentation study, we captured their experiences during a Chinese class. Finally, we got three main themes that impress us: “I don’t want to be a loser! (First Impression)”; “I prefer she use body language than English (Learning Process and Teacher)”; and “If I don’t know him/her I will ask payment for me (Motivation in Chinese)”.
