The population in this study were ten students. The sampling technique used is saturated sampling, that is, all members of the population are sampled. The sample, all fifth grade students and fifth grade teachers were used. The number of questionnaires used were 10 statements given to students and 10 questions were given to the fifth grade teacher for interviews. The interview data were described by summarizing the results, while the questionnaire analysis used descriptive analysis techniques with percentage calculations. From interviews with teachers, it was found that the implementation of the experiment in fifth grade was still lacking because it was rare to carry out the experiment and there were many obstacles in terms of tools and materials as well as the practical guide. The results of the student questionnaire, 40% of students stated that the implementation of the experiment went quite well, while 60% of the students stated that the implementation of the experiment was not going well, in the sense that the implementation of the experiment was rarely carried out by the teacher. The obstacles to implementing practicum are mainly the lack of tools and materials for practicum, the absence of a special place practicum, not having special guidance for practicum and the lack of teacher readiness in teaching practicum because there is no special practicum guide.</p> NWS Darmayanti Desak Putu Anom Janawati I Nyoman Sudirman Ni Luh Lismayanti Ni Nengah Persi Copyright (c) 2023 NWS Darmayanti, Desak Putu Anom Janawati , I Nyoman Sudirman, Ni Luh Lismayanti, Ni Nengah Persi 2023-08-31 2023-08-31 12 2 128 136 10.21070/pedagogia.v12i2.1602 Revolutionizing Education: Enhancing Numeracy Skills with the Innovative Monster Math Game <p>The development of Information Communication and Technology (ICT) has an impact on the education. But teacher still use conventional methods. Therefore, this research aims to develop educational game media using the Construct 2 to improve the literacy numeracy skills of third grade elementary school students that are valid, practical, and effective. This development research refers to the ADDIE. The results of the development were applied to class III students at SD Negeri Janti for the 2022/2023 academic year. The development product is the Monster Math Game. The research instruments are validation sheets, questionnaires, and literacy numeration questions. The validity test was obtained from 3 experts, namely Curriculum Expert, Material Expert, and Media Expert. Results form Curriculum Expert at 87.5%, Material Expert at 86.4%, and Media Expert at 89.3%. So, it can be concluded that the Monster Math Game is very feasible to use to improve the literacy numeracy skills of Class III Elementary School. The results of the practicality test from educators were 89.3% and the practicality tests from students were 94.15%. From these results, it can be concluded that the Monster Math Game is very practical to use. The results of the effectiveness test through the t-test obtained the results of the sig value. (2-tailed) of 0.000 which means the sig. (2-tailed) &lt; 0.05, so there is a significant difference between the results of the pre-test and post-test, it’s means that the Monster Math Game product is effective in improving the literacy numeracy skills of class III elementary school.</p> Anies Mey Pitanti Copyright (c) 2023 Anies Mey Pitanti 2023-08-29 2023-08-29 12 2 76 91 10.21070/pedagogia.v12i2.1573 Enhancing Teaching Skills: The Principal's Role in Implementing Convergence Clinical Model for Questioning Skills Improvement <p>This study aims to describe holistically the role shown by the principal as a supervisor through supervision activities of the convergence clinical model to improve teacher teaching skills, especially questioning skills. This research uses a qualitative approach with a multi-case study design. The subjects of this research were SDN Dukuhklopo and MI Plus Darul Falah Jombang. Data collection instruments in this study used in-depth interview techniques, participant observation, and documentation studies. Data analysis is carried out together with the process of data collection and analysis after data collection is complete. The results of the study show (1) In planning supervision, the supervision program made by the principal of the school/madrasah includes efforts to improve questioning skills or learning competencies in general that need to be improved. Furthermore, the school principal socializes the supervision program with teachers. (2) Implementation of school/madrasah supervision begins with assessing the completeness of teaching tools and to improve questioning skills, supervisors carry out observations using instruments. (3) The follow-up of school/madrasah supervision is carried out, namely the follow-up on the results of the evaluation of teacher teaching tools and the results of supervision of class visits.</p> Nenin Maining Tiyas Copyright (c) 2023 Nenin Maining Tiyas 2023-08-25 2023-08-25 12 2 69 75 10.21070/pedagogia.v12i2.1574 Unleashing the Power of LAPS-Heuristic Learning: Enhancing Mathematical Problem Solving Abilities in Grade 3 Students <p>This study aims to determine whether there is a significant influence between the mathematical problem solving abilities of students who are given the LAPS-Heuristic learning model and those who are not given the LAPS-Heuristic learning model. This type of research is experimental research with a quantitative descriptive approach. The subjects of this study were all grade 3 students of MI Mahir Ar Riyadl for the 2021/2022 academic year. The results show that there is a significant value (2-tailed) in the first row of 0.000 and it can be seen that 0.000 &lt;0.05, so that H_1 is accepted, which means that there is a significant influence between students' mathematical problem solving abilities using the LAPS-Heuristic learning model with those who do not use the LAPS-Heuristic model. This means that in this study it can be concluded that there is an effect of applying the LAPS-Heuristic model to students' mathematical problem solving abilities. Suggestions from this study are the LAPS-Heuristic learning model so that it can be applied to other subjects and materials.</p> Deni Adi Putra Meirza Nanda Faradita Vebri Anita Copyright (c) 2023 Deni Adi Putra, Meirza Nanda Faradita, Vebri Anita 2023-09-01 2023-09-01 12 2 92 127 10.21070/pedagogia.v12i2.1603
