THE COMPETENCE OF INDONESIAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE TEACHERS THROUGH NETWORK LEARNING IN TWO TEACHER PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION MODES
This study’s aims are to analyze (1) the different ability of teachers in developing education tools with the hybrid learning and special regional modes; (2) the different skills of the teachers in managing learning sections using the hybrid learning and special regional modes; and (3) the impact of network learning applications on the teachers’ competence in the hybrid learning mode. The research method that is used is observation combined with a cross-sectional model. The data come from (1) the teachers’ ability to develop a learning tool; (2) the teacher’s ability to manage learning; and (3) the pedagogic competence test result of the Teacher Professional Education (TPE) hybrid learning mode participants. The data are then analyzed using descriptive statistics (minimum value, maximum value, mean, and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (comparison and correlation analysis). The results show that there are not any significant differences between the teachers’ ability to develop the learning tools between the hybrid learning mode and special regional mode. However, in the teachers’ ability to manage learning (performance), there is a significant result. The learning system application had a significant impact on teacher’s pedagogic competence, especially for the hybrid learning participants. The application of hybrid learning in the implementation of TPE in Indonesia has had a positive impact on improving teacher competency, especially among Indonesian language and literature teachers.
