Education & Technology

This website is currently being translated and updated from our Indonesian site (E-Pendidikan > E-Education). Our Education Network commenced operations in 1998 while I was working at the MoE in Indonesia. From 1998 till year 2000 I wrote several articles on Computers and the Internet that were based upon implementation appropriate to good School-Based Management practices.

However, around the period 2000-2001 the struggling ICT industry here in Indonedia began to see the Business Opportunities for ICT in the Education Sector (giant market with currently over 50 million students). Since that period we have had to struggle to overcome the high levels of rhetoric associated with the role of technology in education, and especially issues associated with Quality Education. That is why we eventually created the site EducationTechnology.Us


"1 Computer For Each Student (1:1), Or, What Is The Best Ratio?"
(This Is Only An Academic Question, Right?)


When Will We Have Enough Computers For A Rasio Of "1 Computer For Each Student"?


When...........? Read.............!


"Let's Focus Upon World Standards In Education"
(Appropriate Education Technology Is The Solution, Not ICT-Based Learning)

Even if we have the technology is available, when we apply the principles of "Appropriate Education Technology" computers are rarely used in the learning process in classrooms, and we don't need them. (Very Rarely Appropriate Technology).

Appropriate Education Technology (AET) is already available in all schools in "Indonesia Now", and teachers only need to learn how to use AET effectively, and together with Active-Contextual-Learning they can achieve world standards in education. Also learning to use AET (Pedagogy-Based) is also the best way to learn how to integrate all forms of technology into the learning process.

ICT-Based Learning In The Classroom Threatens Indonesian Human Resource Creativity Development (Also Teacher Creativity Development). Further Information...

"We Must Continually Strive To Follow Global Developments"

Saya sangat setuju, tetapi masalahnya adalah kita tidak ikut "perkembangan dunia" dan itu sebabnya kita tetap tidak maju. Anak-anak kita mempunyai kemampuan besar, dan saya ingin melihat mereka mengambil tempat di dunia ini yang sesuai, bukan menjadi TKI yang tenaga buruh terus. Tetapi kita harus fokus kepada strategi-strategi "perkembangan dunia" yang benar dapat dilaksanakan dan mengembangkan kemampuannya - yang sudah terbukti!

"Internet Belum Dimanfaatkan Secara Positif Oleh Pelajar"
(Prof. DR. Nurtain)

"PADANG--MI: Pakar pendidikan dari Universitas Negeri Padang (UNP), Prof. DR. Nurtain mengatakan kini banyak pelajar dan mahasiswa yang tidak memanfaatkan kemajuan teknologi informasi dan komunikasi internet untuk hal-hal positif namun lebih cenderung hanya untuk menghabiskan waktu dan hal yang tidak bermanfaat."

Prof. DR. Nurtain - Salut
Semoga kita dapat mulai menggunakan anggaran pendidikan kita untuk hal yang penting, seperti melatih guru-guru di lapangan mengenai caranya menggunakan "Teknologi Yang Tepat Guna"

Semoga Sukses!

Kelihatannya kita sudah mulai sadar!
Internet Masuk Sekolah - Mengapa?

"Teknologi Pendidikan Tepat Guna :: Jaman Kini!"

Dengan rasio: "Sekarang Satu Komputer Untuk 2.000 Siswa" dan "dari jumlah total yang mencapai 200.000 sekolah, sekitar 182.500 sekolah tingkat SD, SMP, dan SMA se-Indonesia belum terakses internet", pembelajaran oleh komputer & e-Learning jelas bukan solusi untuk meningkatkan mutu pendidikan di sekolah jaman kini, kan?

Yang penting dulu pemerintah fokus kepada target rasio komputer / siswa menjadi 1:20 pada tahun 2015 itu supaya kita dapat melaksanakan program pembelajaran "mengenai TIK" di semua sekolah yang sangat-sangat penting. Yang penting untuk semua pendidik sekarang: "Apakah Kebijakan TIK (ICT) di Sekolah Mengancam?"

"Pelajar Kayuagung Kecanduan Game Online"

"KAYUAGUNG, KOMPAS.com ? Para siswa SD hingga SMA sederajat di Kayuagung, ibu kota Kabupaten Ogan Komering Ilir, Sumatera Selatan, ditengarai sudah kecanduan permainan di internet (game online) sehingga cenderung malas belajar."

"Redi (11), pelajar di salah satu SD negeri di Kayuagung, mengaku sengaja menyisihkan uang jajannya sebesar Rp 3.000 per hari untuk bermain game online di warnet selama satu jam penuh karena sehari saja tidak ke warnet ia mengaku pusing."

"Di sejumlah warung internet di Kayuagung diketahui, puluhan kelompok pelajar hampir setiap hari memenuhi warnet untuk bermain game online, bahkan ada siswa yang membolos sekolah demi menyalurkan hobi di dunia maya tersebut."

"Sejak empat bulan terakhir saya tidak pernah lagi jajan di sekolah karena uang yang diberikan orangtua disimpan untuk membayar sewa warnet selama satu jam supaya bisa main game online, kata Redi."

"Firman (42), salah seorang pemilik warnet di Kayuagung, membenarkan perihal banyaknya pelajar di daerah itu yang saat ini sedang kecanduan game online, Facebook, dan Friendster di dunia maya."

"Facebook Sebabkan Mahasiswa Malas dan Bodoh"

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Pengguna Facebook yang masih sekolah berhati-hatilah! Menurut studi yang dilakukan oleh Ohio State University, semakin sering Anda menggunakan Facebook, semakin sedikit waktu Anda belajar dan semakin buruklah nilai-nilai mata pelajaran Anda.

"Hati-hati, 600 Juta Situs Seks Intai Pelajar!"

SURABAYA, KOMPAS.com ? Sedikitnya 600 juta situs seks dan pornografi saat ini mengintai pelajar pengguna internet. Karena itu, harus ada kontrol penggunaan internet.

"Konsumsi Anak terhadap Siaran Televisi, Internet, dan Telepon Seluler harus dikurangi"

"Ketua Umum Komisi Nasional Perlindungan Anak (Komnas PA) Seto Mulyadi minta para orang tua untuk mengurangi kebiasaan anak menonton televisi, mengakses internet dan menggunakan telepon seluler." (Saturday, February 21, 2009)

Kami di E-Pendidikan.Com terus ditanya "Apakah ada informasi baru di bidang teknologi & pendidikan?" Ya:

Teknologi Sekarang Membuat Beberapa Ancaman Baru Terhadap "Anak-Anak Bangsa Yang Cerdas".
  • Banyak sekali siswa-siswi sudah biasa membuang terlalu banyak waktu main games, misalnya Play Station dan Games Online. Waktu ini sebaiknya digunakan untuk menambah kemampuan mengulang pelajaran dari sekolah. Sebagai siswa-siswi atau orang tua yang bertanggungjawab kita perlu sangat membatasi atau memonitor waktu anak-anak kita main games atau akses Internet.

    Ingat bahwa main games hanya dapat menyiapkan anak-anak kita untuk jurusan pengangguran!

  • Terlalu banyak siswa-siswi juga sudah mulai menghabiskan banyak waktu di Internet di situs-situs hiburan (atau cari jodoh) seperti Facebook, Yahoo Messenger dan Friendster di mana mereka hanya menghabiskan waktu, yang sangat tidak produktif, dan perlu dibatasi. Kalau kita rajin keliling warnet setelah jam sekolah kita dapat melihat bahwa kebanyakan siswa-siswi sedang sibuk dengan chatting dan e-mail (pergaulan).

    Ini juga baik untuk mereka yang hanya berharap ikut pengangguran!

  • Lebih dari 90% bahan dan informasi yang bermutu, yang dapat meluaskan dan membuka pikiran dan kreativitas anak kita di Internet dalam bahasa Inggris (the international language). Internet sebagai sumber informasi saja sangat terbatas untuk anak-anak kita karena bahan dan informasi bermutu dalam bahasa Indonesia adalah sangat sedikit. Sebetulnya ada banyak isu yang jauh lebih penting. Misalnya!

    Lebih baik mereka menggunakan waktunya untuk belajar bahasa Inggris supaya mereka dapat berpartisipasi di dunia global, kan? Maupun membuka pintu kerja di seluruh dunia.

    Informasi dan bahan pembelajaran yang paling tepat dan sesuai dengan kebutuhan siswa-siswi mereka akan menerima di sekolah oleh guru. Kadang-kadang gurunya akan menambah kegiatan seperti penelitian di mana siswa-siswi diberi tugas mencari informasi dari Internet. Ini kegiatan yang baik dan adalah fokus. Kegiatan begini sebaiknya dilaksanakan di luar jam sekolah supaya tidak makan waktu di sekolah yang masih sangat kurang.

Do we need education technology to achieve quality teaching/learning?

Teknologi pendidikan yang sampai sekarang ini masih sangat dapat membantu guru dan siswa-siswi di lapangan adalah apa?

  • Biasanya teknologi yang paling efektif adalah yang paling sederhana, yang mengajak siswa-siswi aktif dalam proses pembelajaran. Misalnya

  • Semua siswa-siswi perlu belajar keterampilan komputer dan TIK karena keterampilan komputer dan TIK sering sekali adalah kebutuhan utama di lapangan kerja. Tetapi teknologi cangih sebagai media untuk menyampaikan pendidikan kita tidak perlu!

"I can answer "No" without any hesitation to your basic question 'do we need education technology to achieve quality teaching/learning?'" (Totok Amin Soefijanto)
Mr. Totok Amin Soefijanto is Deputy Rector (Vice-Chancellor) for Academics and Research at Paramadina University, Jakarta
.
He earned his Ed.D in educational media and technology at Boston University.

Apakah benar teknologi adalah solusi untuk
pendidikan yang bermutu di Indonesia?

Jangan menunggu sampai kita akan menghadapi Ujian Negara (UN) lagi. Yang paling penting sekarang adalah pembelajaran dari sekolah mereka. Mohon jangan sampai main game komputer, chatting, Friendster, Facebook, dll dapat memakan waktu mereka sampai anak-anak kita dirugikan oleh teknologi!

Ingat Ya!
"Facebook Sebabkan Mahasiswa Malas dan Bodoh"

Not A Good Design A Major responsibility of schools entering this new era of globalization is to prepare students for the new challenges that are rapidly changing our society.

One of the greatest challenges currently facing our youth is finding meaningful employment. The ability to speak a foreign language and computer literacy are currently two of the most common criteria required from people wishing to enter the workforce in Indonesia (and globally).

IT Class

As only about 20-30% of Senior Secondary School SMA graduates nationally continue on to formal tertiary education, and with computers now infiltrating every aspect of human life it places a high burden of responsibility upon our education system to improve the development of our students' language and computer literacies. The study of technology is very important and schools are responsible for teaching technology (ICT) at all levels because many students are still failing to continue their education beyond primary and junior secondary levels. .

Latest Indonesian Technology News

We fully support the development of technology in education, however, we also feel that we must ascertain whether technology and its application is appropriate to the needs, and also question whether in fact it meets the needs at all.

For instance, Improve The Role and Quality Of Our School Libraries.

School & Community Libraries
Is Technology The Solution For Our Libraries?

We need quality management, policy and planning in our schools before we can maximize the utilization of technology. For example: Laptops In Schools.


Technology (for instance laptops) have the potential to assist learners in schools, however like every aspect of quality in education, management and policy are the key issues that need to be addressed first.

The implementation of technology in education in Indonesia must be in accordance with a master plan for the overall development of education generally. Technology must be rationally integrated into the development plan considering all of the many other high priority development issues (a Holistic Master Development Plan) , a plan that addresses all education issues and priorities in balance (Not another project-based disaster!).

Often public announcements about the role of technology in education appear in our newspapers that don't appear to have considered global education research or experience at all. Frequently specific remote cases or sources of information are projected as general education solutions.

However, important issues here in Indonesia like: "Schools can't protect themselves against pornography" haven't been given sufficient consideration and only emerge as issues after they have been encountered in the field. The solution lies in diligent high quality human resources in our schools which is also the key to addressing most of the other education issues as well.

Of course we must search for creative solutions, however we must also learn from the general pool of world experiences so that we don't replicate the failures experienced in other countries.

We really need some quality research

Internet Cafe

Is the fact that increasing numbers of students are spending time in Internet cafes rather than spending the time at home reviewing their school work or doing their homework one of the reasons for decreasing performance in their National Exams (UN)?
We need to know!


With all Technologies, for instance; the Electronic Whiteboard, OHP, Video, Television, e-Learning, Internet, etc., the quality and therefore the usefulness relies 100% upon the quality of the content and the teaching process deployed. Technology itself is just a medium. Whether it succeeds or fails depends 100% upon the content and process, not the technology.

It appears that the importation of cheap laptops at prices like those quoted in the marketing still cannot be achieved, for instance:

$150 Linux Mini-PC dari Cina

$150 Linux Mini-PC dari Cina
A Chinese company is touting an inexpensive Linux-based computer as a way to close the "digital divide." YellowSheepRiver's $150 "Municator" appears to be available now, with a three-month leadtime, suggesting it could reach market well ahead of MIT's $100 "One Laptop Per Child" (OLPC) device. More Information



One Laptop Per Child

E-Pendidikan Supports The "One Laptop Per Child" Program

"Mission Statement: To create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning".(at a price of $100 currently still $188).

One Laptop Per Child : "To provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore, experiment and express themselves." Informasi lanjut.

One of our (Education Network) objectives is to locate laptops and other technologies at the cheapest prices possible for our education community.

How can we (citizens, government and industry) work together to improve technology facilities for our young learners? How can we achieve "One Laptop Per Child?"

What Is Quality Education?

Teacher-based education where the welfare and abilities of the teachers are satisfactory, and the schools are in good condition, with a curriculum that meets the needs of the students, and is 'well balanced' (includes many forms of skills training including technology), that is implemented using contextual learning is the solution for preparing our children for the challenges of the future.
