Karmila Rafiqah M. Rafiqa, Harwati Hashimb*, Melor Md Yunusc, Faculty of Education, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Email: b*harwati@ukm.edu.my

As the Internet of Things (IoT) is paving it’s way into various industries, the educational field is changing from formal classroom to online education, where learning is not only restricted to face-to-face interaction but also virtually. This paper aimed to review the different models of MOOC, which can be used as guidelines to carry out online training. The discussion revolves around the various models of MOOC, whereby learning theories are used as a foundation. Ranging from cognitivist to connectivity, the models of MOOC keep emerging to suit the current demands of learning and to cater to the needs of each individual. The considerable variation of MOOCs does not make the earlier models to be ineffective, yet the later models complement the earlier ones. These discussions will be able to guide and provide an overview for educators and researchers in designing and developing MOOC, especially for professional training in the working field.  Pages 90 to 98

Video Games: The Game Changer in Teaching Writing for ESL Learning

Haida Umiera Hashima, Melor Md Yunusb, Harwati Hashimc, Faculty of Education, The National University of Malaysiaa,b,c

Being able to write excellent academic writing has become a problem among English as Secondary Language learners. Learners tend to be wrong in writing and not show much interest in writing academic writing. One of the reasons for this is because of the conventional approach by educators that are making learners not to feel motivated to write and cause a lack of writing skills. Due to that, to motivate students to be engaged in writing, an intervention of video games is used in teaching writing for ESL learning. The use of video games, specific Players' Underground Battle, or widely known as PUBG, is used in motivating learners to write. A few words or phrases were taken from the video games, and learners needed to write a page of writing out of them. Based on the findings, it can be seen that the intervention of video games has helped learners to be more motivated and creative in writing.  Pages 164 to 172

This study analyses ‘phubbing behavior’ in Indonesia. 1093 students responded to the study in which a multistage random sampling technique determined participants’ level of happiness (happy, unhappy.) via a Phubbing Behavior Scale (APBS). The data was collated using a research method that was comparative, quantitative and descriptive. Data was analysed with an analysis of variance. The results found 45.2% of Indonesian students experienced high expressions of phubbing behaviour (495 respondents). Judging from the correlated level of happiness in participants, there was no significant difference found: The people expressing high amounts of phubbing were not less happy. The mean of students who tend towards phubbing behaviour. This shows that phubbing in your daily life does not affect your happiness as an individual, but phubbing may be one factor inhibiting happiness.

This article discusses the discourse of art in Sasak, Lombok, in the context of Art Education. This research aims to examine the reality of painting styles in Lombok using Representation Theory in Cultural Studies. From this perspective, the research aim was to explore how the art of Sasak, Lombok is represented. Data was collected using library records and a discourse analysis was applied. There was not a singular art discourse for Lombok. The artistic tradition before the 2000s was dominated by a discussion of Traditional art. This corresponded with a nobility government in West Nusa Tenggara.  Later between the year 2000 and 2010, specifically in the leadership period of Tuan Guru, Islam, discussions of Modernity were found to dominate written interpretations of art. The transition of leadership from the aristocracy to governance under the leadership of Tuan Guru correlated with the changing of Sasak’s art discourse from Tradition to Modernity.

Technology and information have evolved in various fields, with one such area being guidance and counselling. As such, school counsellors must be able to keep the balance between the pace of technological development with service processes that require school counsellors to use complementary technology. One such example is in the assessment process AUM SP.1 PTSDL, an online system application that can be used by school counsellors in the assessment process to reveal learning problems. This application can support school counsellors to develop more assessments without requiring as much time and energy compared to usual manual processing. Processing the instrument manual is an inefficient use of the school counsellor’s time. As such, counsellors have difficulty using AUM PTSDL for the assessment process. The development of information technology that is present today fosters the need for counsellors to use applications or media that can facilitate their tasks by allowing them to use their energy and time more effectively and efficiently.Pages 378 to 389

School Guidance and Counselling Services for Special Education Students in Malaysia: A Literature Review

Abu Yazid Abu Bakara, Siti Nurliyana Ahmadb, Mohd. Izwan Mahmudc, Faculty of Education, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor, Malaysia

The Malaysian Education Act 1996 gave the liberty to the Minister to establish special education classrooms at any schools that needed them, provided the students’ population in those particular schools is sufficient.  This clause has motivated the establishment of Program Pendidikan Khas Integrasi (PPKI) in government schools ever since.  This move encouraged parents who have children with issues like learning disabilities and other categories of special needs, to send their children into the mainstream education system, and the numbers are growing every year. The uniqueness of these students and the special learning needed by them makes it essential for the educational system to provide holistic support elements in school settings.  One of these vital elements is the counselling provision specifically tailored for this unique population of students.  However, the current school counselling services provided are based more on the “one-size-fits-all” philosophy; thus, tends to ignore the needs of special education students. On top of that, the PPKI teachers are not given proper training or knowledge in counselling and guidance, which prevents them from helping the students effectively in school. This paper analytically reviews the literature, internationally and locally, with the main purpose to establish an overview of the provision of school counselling for special education students in Malaysia.  Consequently, this literature review will initiate further research works to plan integrated strategies to enhance the existing school counselling services in the Malaysian education system.

Blending Humour and Animation in English Learning for Students of English Education Programs in Universities

Anastasia Dewi Anggraenia, Helda Jolanda Penturyb, Nini Adelina Tanamalc, English Education Department, Universitas Indraprasta PGRI, Indonesiaa,b,c

Most pedagogical approaches lay particular stress on inculcating knowledge while ignoring the significance of students’ learning skills, interests, attitudes and confidence. Therefore, most students consider English learning as examination-oriented. Humour and animation can accommodate learning styles and enhance students’ perceptions of the lesson being presented. Unfortunately, the fact is that the use of humour and animation in language teaching classes in our place does not draw enough attention. Thus, the new teaching and learning approach has not been widely applied. This study used both qualitative as well as quantitative methods to collect data. The qualitative methods included class observation, interviews, teaching material selection, analysis and animation video. The quantitative method focused on class project results. Sixty students of the English Education Department of Indraprastha PGRI Jakarta in their third semester 2019 were chosen in this study. The results of the survey clearly show that students’ projects, which were taught utilising humour and animation, achieved better results. The results were exposed to contextualised language through the implementation of fun in animation. It indicates that there are potential benefits involved in the application of this new learning and teaching methodology, that is can enrich students’ vocabularies, lead to an increase in comprehension of the contexts in animation, create new animation styles, and, therefore, more attention should be paid to this issue in the future.

The challenges of rapid technological development require an educational pattern in the form of a curriculum that is adaptive to these changes. Educational success will be indicated through the ability of students to master the subject matter, the ability to face the challenges of the times, have a successful social life, and career preparation by following the stages of development. This success will be generated through counselling services that are also successful in schools. However, the study conducted by the author shows the process of learning activities in schools is not optimal, and the selection of study programs is not appropriate in students' continued education. This study aims to develop an integrative, collaborative model of school personnel with parents to optimize student learning processes based on Android technology. This research is development research using the ADDIE model approach. This study involved 142 counsellors and 150 parents of high school students.

A counsellor needs a multicultural view in order to deal with cases relating to the culture of a society. The composition of Indonesian society across various ethnic and cultural groups often causes conflicts in the interaction between communities. Based on that, students, especially guidance and counselling students, do well to have this multicultural focus. An instrument was developed to measure students' multicultural competencies. This research is a quantitative study using Rasch Model analysis. The subjects of this study were 403 college students in Indonesia. The subjects of this study were selected using Cluster Random Sampling. The instrument used in this study is the student multicultural competency instrument developed from the theory of Constantine & Sue. Research data were analysed using the Rasch Model. The results showed that this instrument was suitable for the study because it had fulfilled the instrument's validity and reliability requirements. Pages 583 to 597
