In this volume, we publish six articles from many authors across the countries, e.g. from Nigeria, Philippines, and of course Indonesia and one book review from our editor.</p> <p>First, Baluyos et al. illustrate the level of readiness for the implementation of the new curricula in Misamis University, Philippines. It found that there is a different perception toward the implementation of the new curricula between students and teachers that affect the success of its implementation. Baluyos et al. suggest several strategies to endorse the success of the implementation of the new curricula focusing on the socialization process lead by the management of the institution.</p> <p>Second, Budiyanto et al. describe the implementation of credit system for senior high school in one of the pilot project schools in Salatiga, Central Java, Indonesia. This policy was closely related to curriculum issues and policy on how to give student right. Despite that the policy appropriate with the government intends to improve the schools’ orientation to facilitate the varieties of student needs and abilities, it also found several remaining obstacles come from the teachers and students, i.e. misunderstanding of the essence of the credit system.</p> <p>Third, Casinillo &amp; Casinillo develop an econometric model on students’ happiness in learning mathematic to identify its influencing factors. This article trying to cross the border of education studies by enriching it with such an econometric model. They found that household income, allowance, and mental health condition has a small influence on students’ happiness in learning, conversely, students who spend most of their time in the library seem much happier than others.</p> <p>Fourth, Onojah et al. reveal how undergraduate students on several campuses in Nigeria use social media for learning purposes. They found that the students’ level of proficiency is high and it has several degrees of possibility to enhance their academic achievement. The more proficient students’ ability it means they have more opportunity to improve their academic success.</p> <p>Fifth, Faqiroh tries to describe the development and implementation of problem-based learning model in the Indonesian context between 2010-2019. Based on several data and information from Google search engine it concluded that problem-based is one of the famous and familiar learning models among academicians in Indonesia. She also proposes that problem-based is appropriate with the recent trend and issue in this 21st-century skills, because problem-based learning model address students’ critical thinking, systematic thinking, problem-solving, and etc.</p> <p>Sixth, Kholis and Kustiyono focusing on the critical issue of how the student with special in special education program need to enhance their skills on the English language by using such learning video entitled ”Cycling is Fun”. This topic is deeply rooted in the spirit of how educational technology should improve students’ learning process and outcome by using technological processes and resources. It concludes that the product could create a conducive learning atmosphere, motivate student involvement, build student discipline, and activeness.</p> <p>Lastly, the book review article addresses the work of Priestly and Biesta who edited a magnificent book entitled Reinventing the Curriculum: New Trends in Curriculum Policy and Practice (2013). This review tries to reveal the possibilities of such project into the development of Curriculum Studies, especially in Indonesian context. For those who concern on the recent development of curriculum policy in the international context, this review could be a good encounter to provide its context and substance.</p> <p>At least, thanks to all authors, editors, reviewers, and readers for your contribution to this volume and onwards. We hope more audience will contribute for the next volume.</p> <p>Semarang, April 2020</p> <p><strong>Editor-In-Chief</strong></p> Editor in Chief ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-04-30 2020-04-30 8 1 i iv 10.15294/ijcets.v8i1.39438 The Level of Readiness of Misamis University in the Implementation of the New Curricula <p>Curriculum change is one of the processes that help the school maintain its quality education. This study assessed the level of readiness on the implementation of the new curricula on the different programs in Misamis University during the first semester of SY 2018-2019 using a descriptive research design. A modified survey questionnaire adapted from the work of Espique (2018) was used to assess the level of readiness of the programs in the institution. The respondents included 60 teachers and 298 students chosen through purposive and stratified random sampling. Mean, standard deviation, and ANOVA or F-tests were the statistical tools used in the study. Results showed that the university was very highly ready for the implementation of the new curricula. Teachers and students perceived the level of readiness differently. Information about the new curricula must be disseminated well to the teachers, students, and benefactors.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Perubahan kurikulum merupakan satu proses yang membantu mengelola institusi pendidikan dalam meningkatkan kualitas pendidikannya. Penelitian ini mengkaji tingkat kesiapan implementasi kurikulum baru pada beberapa program studi yang berbeda di Universitas Miramis pada semester pertama tahun ajaran 2018-2019 menggunakan desain penelitian deskriptif. Kuesioner survei yang diadaptasi dari Espique (2018) digunakan dalam penelitian ini untuk mengetahui tingkat kesiapan beberapa program studi dan melibatkan 60 dosen dan 298 mahasiswa yang dipilih melalui <em>purposive</em> dan <em>stratified random sampling</em> dan datanya dianalisis menggunakan rata-rata, standar deviasi dan Anova atau F-test. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa program-program studi di Misamis sangat siap mengimplementasikan kurikulum baru. Dosen dan siswa memahami level kesiapan secara berbeda dan menunjukkan bahwa kurikulum baru hendaknya disebarkan dengan baik kepada para dosen, mahasiswa, dan donatur.</p> Genelyn Rible Baluyos April Rose M.

This research aims to describe the implementation of credit system in senior high school in Salatiga as a sample of the study and its problem faced by the management of the school. By conducting qualitative approach, it can be concluded that the implementation of credit system in public senior high school 1 Salatiga is working very well according to its compliance with the policy and manual from the Ministry of Education and Culture. But there are several obstacle come from the teachers and students who do not really comprehend yet the basic concept of the credit system policy, for instance most of the student want to graduate on the same time in which it is contradict with the orientation of the credit system to facilitate each student to learn and graduate according to their own learning pace.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Implementasi system kredit semester (SKS) di Indonesia bukan hal baru, terutama bagi perguruan tinggi, namun bagi sekolah—terutama sekolah menengah atas (SMA) adalah hal baru yang cukup menantang, karena memang fokus pada melayani secara holistik kebutuhan belajar tiap siswa. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk menggambarkan implementasi dan problem yang dihadapi dalam penerapan kebijakan SKS tersebut di SMA Negeri 1 Salatiga sebagai salah satu contoh penerapan. Dengan menggunakan pendekatan kualitatif penelitian ini menyimpulkan bahwa secara umum pelaksanaan SKS di SMA N 1 Salatiga dapat berjalan dengan baik sesuai dengan kebijakan dan panduan dari Kementerian Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan. Namun pada dasarnya terdapat beberapa kendala yang berasal dari guru dan siswa yang belum sepenuhnya konsep dasar dari kebijakan SKS tersebut. Misal, banyak siswa seangkatan ingin lulus Bersama-sama yang mana hal ini berlawanan dengan orientasi dari kebijakan SKS untuk memfasilitasi tiap siswa untuk dapat belajar dan lulus sesuai dengan kecepatan belajar masing-masing.</p> Budiyanto Budiyanto Alfa Setya Rachim Istyarini Istyarini ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-04-29 2020-04-29 8 1 13 21 10.15294/ijcets.v8i1.36775 Econometric Modelling on Happiness in Learning Mathematics: The Case of Senior High Students <p>This study developed econometric models on the students’ happiness in learning mathematics to identify its influencing factors. A complete enumeration of 115 grade 11 students in the Visayas State University were employed as participants. Results showed that about 61% of the students considered themselves as moderately happy in learning. Their expected happiness is approximately the same with their actual happiness, which is one of the significant determinants in the models. STEM students among other strands in senior high school are more likely happy learners. Household income, allowance, and mental health condition show a small influence on their happiness in learning.&nbsp; Students who spend more time in the library, and those living in rural places tend to be happy in learning. Furthermore, physical health condition shows an inverse effect on students’ well-being in learning mathematics, while social relationships and the distance from home to school do not contribute to their happiness.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Penelitian ini mengembangkan model ekonometrik pada kebahagiaan siswa dalam pembelajaran matematika untuk mengidentifikasi faktor-faktor yang memengaruhinya. Data diambil dari 115 mahasiswa kelas 11 di Universitas Negeri Visayas. Hasilnya menunjukkan bahwa sekitar 61% mahasiswa menilai diri mereka relatif bahagia. Tingkat kebahagiaan yang mereka harapkan relatif sama dengan yang mereka tunjukkan secara aktual dan ini merupakan salah satu model yang signifikan buktinya. Siswa yang mengikuti program STEM dan sejenisnya pada jenjang sekolah menengah atas (SMA) tampak lebih bahagia. Pendapatan di rumah, tunjangan, dan kesehatan mental tampak menunjukkan pengaruh yang tidak seberapa pada kebahagiaan belajar. Sementara itu siswa yang menghabiskan banyak waktu di perpustakaan dan tinggal di perdesaan cenderung bahagia dalam belajar. Lebih lanjut, kondisi kesehatan fisik tampak berbanding terbalik dengan kesejahteraan siswa dalam belajar matematika, sementara itu relasi sosial dan jarak rumah ke sekolah tidak berkontribusi pada kebahagiaan siswa.</p> Leomarich F Casinillo Emily L.

This study therefore assessed the undergraduate students’ proficiency’ level of utilizing social media for learning in Nigeria. The study employed the quantitative research method. Four hundred and fifty (450) respondents were randomly sampled across universities in Nigeria on which a structured questionnaire was administered on the students. The research questions were answered using mean, while t-test statistic was used to test the two hypotheses. Results of the research revealed that the proficiency level of undergraduates on the utilization of social media for learning was high and there was no significant difference between male and female undergraduates' utilization and undergraduates' proficiency towards the utilization of social media for learning. The study concluded that undergraduate students have good proficiency level on the utilization of social media for learning.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Siswa-siswa sekarang banyak menggunakan media sosial sekadar untuk aktivitas sosial ketimbang belajar, hanya saja kajian untuk hal ini relatif minim. Penelitian ini mengkaji tingkat kemahiran mahasiswa S1 dalam penggunaan media sosial untuk pembelajaran di Nigeria. Penelitian ini menggunakan metode kuantitatif dan melibatkan 450 responden yang dipilih secara acak dari seluruh universitas di Nigeria menggunakan kuesioner terstruktur untuk para siswa. Pertanyaan penelitian ini dijawab menggunakan rata-rata dan analisis statistik t-test digunakan untuk menguji hipotesisnya. Hasil penelitian ini menunjukkan bahwa level kemahiran/penguasaan mahasiswa dalam menggunakan media sosial untuk pembelajaran tinggi dan tidak ada perbedaan antara mahasiswa laki-laki dan perempuan. Penelitian ini menyimpulkan bahwa mahasiswa S1 memiliki tingkat kemahiran yang bagus dalam menggunakan media sosial untuk pembelajaran.</p> Amos Ochayi Onojah Omotayo Olabo Obielodan Adenike Aderogba Onojah Akinkunmi Solomon Ajala Roseline Enuwa Sotuminu Keji Sakiru Sulaimon ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-04-29 2020-04-29 8 1 32 41 10.15294/ijcets.v8i1.38157 Problem Based Learning Model for Junior High School in Indonesia (2010-2019) <p>Problem-based learning model is a learning model emphasizes on solving the problem as a mean to know the students’ thinking skills and bring learning process more meaningful.

Furthermore, it brings complexities in practices when the teachers try to implement the national-official curriculum in schools’ context, because there are many tensions among the interest of the government, the teachers’ ability to perceive and develop the curriculum on a contextual way, the slow and conservative bureaucracy in the district level, and the empirical social phenomenon and changes in the field. For instance in Indonesia, the rise of the national curriculum of 2013 is not academic in nature, but more political and we could see how the government takes many issues from the international trend to enrich the content of the curriculum and it implementation (see i.e. Alhamuddin, 2019; Mitra &amp; Purnawarman, 2019; Perdana, 2013).</p> <p>The government role on developing the national curriculum is interesting, especially because it has a power and system to force the schooling system to accept and implement the official curriculum by enacting several policies. For me it is also interesting to questioning whether the government perceived the curriculum as a field of studies or only as a public policy? In Indonesian context this understanding is important, because could be the important cause of the stagnation of the development of Curriculum Studies in general (Subkhan, 2019). According to the this issue, the edited book by Priestly and Biesta (2013) is important, because it elucidates the recent development of curriculum policy and how it has been practiced and developed in many ways in many countries throughout the world. It is relevant to know the position and role of curriculum policy in the development of curriculum at national level and its affects to Curriculum Studies as well.</p> Edi Subkhan ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-04-29 2020-04-29 8 1 56 61 10.15294/ijcets.v8i1.38298 Index & Acknowledgement <p>-</p> Editor in Chief ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-04-30 2020-04-30 8 1 62 65 10.15294/ijcets.v8i1.39439
