Indonesia Research Update #5: Digital Pedagogy Review by Raissa Mataniari

Screen Shot 2017-09-25 at 11.11.15 am

Previous research has shown the effectiveness of ICT (Information Communication Technology) integration in learning to improve critical thinking skills of students.

 

Hence, technology could not function solely in ICT-integrated learning, it should be associated with the way teachers employ ICT-integrated materials in classroom, known as digital pedagogy.

 

However, the role of digital pedagogy is sometimes neglected in ICT-integrated learning; which potentially results in inadequate learning processes.

 

Raissa Mataniari, a master degree student in School of Education, The University of Adelaide, conducted a systematic review examining the way digital pedagogy has been included in ICT-integrate learning to improve critical thinking skills of students.

 

In her review, the inclusion of digital pedagogy elements: attitude and aptitude; in 145 journal relevant articles were examined.

 

The results showed that 28 articles included the act of embedding digital technology meaningfully into an educational context (attitude) in 91% of journal articles and the meshing of pedagogical expertise with digital technology (aptitude) in 87% of journal articles. With regard to validity and reliability, construct validity was used.

 

Despite some limitations, this study gives benefits to researchers and educators as a point of reference for future interest in designing ICT-integrated learning. Further, this study also gives recommendation of future research to seek the affiliation between digital pedagogy and TPACK.

The ability to study independently is crucial for senior high school students, Indonesia is no exception in this matter.

 

Nowadays, the fast growth of information technology creates many possibilities in regards of self-study, including in it the utilization of video tutorial.

 

Ainun Najib Alfatih, a postgraduate student in School of Education, The University of Adelaide, completed a research examining the efficacy of video tutorial on learning outcomes of high school students.

 

His research used pre-experimental design to determine the magnitude of students’ test score improvement who were taught using the self-study method with video tutorials on the remedial process, and to investigate differences in learning outcomes of students after the remedial process using self-study with video tutorials.

 

Inspired to support young people in his hometown, he chose class XI of SMAN 1 Bontonompo Gowa (high school) as the population.

 

Statistical analysis resulted in the notion of there are differences in learning outcomes of students before and after using a self-learning with video tutorial in the remedial process.

 

He recommends that video tutorial can be used in the process of remediation or in-class activities that requires problem-solving process, especially in the case of derivation of equation in Physics subject.

Indonesia Research Update #3: How Environmentally Friendly are You? by Marpaleni

20526067_10213974601817943_897472258326386207_n

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) declared in 2007 that global warming and climate change are not just a series of events caused by nature, but rather caused by human behaviour.

 

Thus, to reduce the impact of human activities on climate change there is a need of information on how people are currently behaving towards the environment and what constraints they are facing to practice Environmentally Friendly Behavior (EFB) in their daily life.

 

Information in Indonesia on these remains largely missing, or not fully integrated within the existing data systems.

 

Marpaleni, a PhD candidate in Flinders University, propose a study aiming to fill the gap in this knowledge by introducing a measure to monitor the level of EFB of Indonesians, by taking her home province of South Sumatera as a case of study.

 

To achieve this objective, Marpaleni conducted a primary research on 490 households in South Sumatera Province on August – October 2016.

 

The data was then analysed with SPSS software by adopting a combination of Factor Analysis and the 2/3 methods.

 

The preliminary finding of her research shows that, currently, more households in South Sumatera have been behaving in an environmentally unfriendly way.

 

More information could be obtained by contacting Marpaleni directly by email: marpaleni@gmail.com

 

 

Marpaleni is doing her PhD Degree in Population and Environment, Flinders University, with support of a scholarship from Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP).

 

She currently holds a position as statistician in Badan Pusat Statistik Indonesia – Palembang Area Office.

Indonesia Research Update #2: Local Content Policies Implementation by Yanuar Syapaat

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAI6AAAAJGFjNjA3OTBiLThmZTQtNDE5NS05NmViLTU2MWVmNDNhODI0Zg

Realizing the potency of massive market in oil and gas sector, Indonesia implemented local content policies (LCPs) with the intention to require oil and gas companies to utilize host countries’ goods and services.

 

The LCPs in Indonesia stipulate the regulation in some particular areas in the oil and gas industries, including procurement rule, training and technology transfer, and employment requirement.

 

A report of SKK Migas year 2015 shows the decreasing trend in ratio of Indonesia-foreign employee from 2006 to 2015. Indicating that LCPs were able to encourage oil and gas companies to utilize Indonesian employees to work for their companies.

 

However, the whole (goods and services) of local content level from 2006 to 2014 also shows decreasing trend.

 

Inspired to investigate challenges in implementing LCPs in Indonesia, Yanuar Syapaat, a graduate of The University of Adelaide specialised in Project Systems, completed a study on LCPs in Indonesia.

 

Yanuar’s research aimed to describe implementation and outcome of LCPs in Indonesia and four selected countries, namely Australia, Norway, Brazil, and Nigeria.

 

Yanuar used Soft System Methodology to analyse adaptable solution from the best practices of LCPs implementation in four countries to answer the challenges in Indonesian context.

 

His study discovered that most of the challenges could be possibly solved by adopting the strategic steps of implementation in these four countries, including:

 

  1. Monitoring, enforcement and evaluation including fines and sustainable evaluation and feedback system.
  2. Industrial agglomeration and specialization, also research and development in universities and research centre.
  3. Decentralization consideration.
  4. Support and development.
  5. Anti-dumping policies.

Indonesia Research Update: Facilitating Indonesian Pedestrians by Ridlo Haryono

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAnRAAAAJGRiNjk4YmY3LTk3NDMtNDEwOS05OWZmLTRiYjU0YmIwNzRjNg

Jakarta has various issues to be resolved. As Indonesian biggest city, one of the
problems that still become a nightmare nowadays is transportation.

 

The population of vehicles in Jakarta increases very rapidly due to the high growth of economy in the last decades.

 

Additionally, the motorization phenomenon in Jakarta has generated traffic safety issue, especially for pedestrians.

 

The rates of injury and fatality toward pedestrian in Jakarta become one of the highest and remain at the high level across the country.

 

Further, it is indicated that the governments have only been focusing on the development of road infrastructures toward vehicles rather than the walkable environments for pedestrians.

 

Motivated to help solve the complexity of transportation in Indonesia, Ridlo Haryono, a graduate from Applied Project Management Program, The University of Adelaide, completed a research on pedestrian safety in Jakarta.

 

Through qualitative methodology and complex system of thinking, Soft System Methodology was employed by Ridlo to analyse the complexity of transportation system in the capital city of Indonesia.

 

Ridlo suggested that there should be continuous effort to improve public understanding pertaining the rights and the minimum standard of facilities for pedestrian through socialization and education of the Act No. 22 Year 2009 regarding the Traffic and Land Transportation.

 

Further, he also mentioned that there should be more attention on pedestrian facilities especially in regards of public policy from government and investment from private sector.
