Masa Depan Sekolah

Bagaimana masa depan sekolah jika kita melihat pola pendidikan saat ini? Sekolah sejauh ini menjadi tempat bermain anak-anak saja tanpa memungkinkan proses transfer pengetahuan yang menyenangkan. Pemahaman anak-anak tentang pelajaran boleh jadi diraih di rumah dari orang tua atau di tempat les/bimbingan belajar. Anak-anak memang hadir di sekolah tapi tidak selalu belajar.

Inilah kesalahkaprahan yang harus diluruskan. Bahwa belajar identik dengan sekolah. Ini keliru. Anak sebenarnya bisa belajar di mana saja, tanpa terkekang oleh aturan baku atau gedung bernama sekolah. Mereka bebas mengembangkan hobi dan kegemaran untuk mencapai kesempurnaan yang akhirnya mereka manfaatkan untuk meamajukan hidup mereka kelak.

The Pandemic Worsens Yet People Tend to Ignore Health Protocols

Last Sunday a hamlet here in the city where I live conducted a gathering entitled Jalan Sehat or Fresh Walk. Hundreds of people swarmed the event where they collectively walked around two hamlets with fun. It was not a negative activity, by the way unless they forget to conform to the health protocol prescribed by the government.

Most of them were not wearing any mask nor face shield. Worse still, they didn’t take a distance to avoid virus spread during this global pandemic of covid-19. How is the plight going to disappear if people have continued to be ignorant, heedless of any warning?

Health agents are but the front guards that confront the virus without guarantee to be sterile form the attack head on. In fact, they have become victims of the pandemic that remains unstoppable until today. Hospital wards are reported to be full, leaving suspects untreated but to go home under self isolation.

If we are proud of who we are, it is about time we demonstrated our excellence. By tending to what we are required to. There is currently no cure yet for the dangerous virus so the hazard may strike anyone. Let’s do our best and let God do the rest.

Kriteria Guru yang Ideal

Menjadi guru yang ideal dan disukai murid tentu saja menyenangkan. Bukan hanya murid, jika memungkinkan orangtua wali pun menyukainya. Namun apakah mudah menjadi guru yang diidamkan oleh anak didik? Berikut ini kriteria guru yang ideal menurut tulisan seorang pakar pendidikan.

Alasan Menulis Blog

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

My Name is Selma

This is another blog of mine after that in blogspot. I decided to create one to enable me to comment on WordPress blogs I’ve found difficult to deal with from another blogging platform. This is the first post which I devised from an example post made by WordPress team at Blogging University. I am hoping this blog will make great benefit both for me and readers.

I am a happy mom of two, currently residing in a small coastal town in Central Java. I have moved here since 2017 and struggled to adapt to the new situation. The food here is excellent but social circumstances are but my personal problem so far. I’ve started learning the local language and manage to speak as much as I can wherever possible. I think this is what I can publish today. As a new comer to WordPress, I can’t deny I worry about how my blog looks. While I have already given it a name, I’m thinking about what exactly to write here on a regular basis. Yes, to share a story I can simply click the “New Post” button, but I do need to figure out what language I’m gonna use to tell readers my stories in this new town.

Today’s agenda

  • Me and my kids are planning to learn gardening; because it gives us emotional content during the pandemic. Perhaps I could share stories about gardening or green activities so that readers come to my blog.
  • Cooking chicken soup is gonna be fantastic today; cooking certainly helps me focus on what I like and provides ideas about what I want to blog and what I’d like to do with it. Cooking gives me meaning and important context especially during national hectic when a woman is held contempt simply because she prepares lunchbox for her husband. Isn’t that hysterical?

This initial post is long enough, I think, for a person whose native language is not English like me. I have written a short intro to my life but I don’t think I can come up with a bloggy mission statement, something like a manifesto for the future–if this is what I do for the future. During local quarantine I have been thrilled to work with my boys on a small project on writing. Now that New Normal is introduced, things are going quite messy everywhere. Kinda make me sick of people who neglect health protocol for greater good.

Thanks for reading.
