Questioning the classroom

Ideally, education is a conscious effort to prepare students through counseling, teaching and or training for their role in the future. The young generation is the investment of human resources for the vanguard of national defense and as citizens form of existence of the prerequisites.
If traced carefully over the appropriate sentence in accordance with the implication of RI Act No.2 of 1989 relating to the National Education System. Therefore, education is a matter that should not be underestimated because the education will be formed Indonesian men who may be responsible both for himself (internal) as well as to others (external).
Education also varied nature, which among others can be formal, informal, and non-formal education. Formal education can be seen on a number of schools that are officially planned and established by the government, for example such as elementary, junior high, high school and higher education and equal, which all are official.
The informal education that is we can see in real life in the family, such as a father told to learn to their children, indirectly we can say this as a process of informal educational stimulation or in other words is called semi-formal education.
While the latter is called education in non-formal, which is an educational process that most of the activities of the learning process and lead to skills guidance to be gained by the participants after they have educated students from the institution or the institution, for example we can see in courses, let alone a computer course where participants are given the knowledge that qualified students in theory to real applications in practice.
Education in our country by and large aimed at realizing the noble ideals that have been planned and launched by the predecessors of our country, among which seeks to educate the nation’s life in a society, nation and state for the sake of Indonesian society to realize the full, fair and prosperous. This is just a handful of concepts from a myriad of ideals that are embedded expectations of our national education goals.
To accomplished mission and vision that has been decanted, the government made a variety of ways and means to make it happen, among which the government made various processes taking place in education, especially education in schools and the like that can be done through guidance and learning process in it and the process education that can be done outside school (informal and non-formal education such as in family, community, courses, and others).
In a chance interview with one senior high school students in the district municipality of Bandung, the information shows that the learning activities carried out as usual in classrooms with each period of time each lesson with the teacher’s role as the primary source of information. However, in practice the process of teaching and learning activities tend to be in one direction, tend to be passive, let alone there is no positive response and feedback from students so it is very difficult to know whether they understand, understand, or not at all about material that has been communicated to him.
This classic stimulus-response learning activities that can be a problem that would be great, and explode like a bomb at a time when we overcome if not immediately. Therefore, we settle the matter must be carefully from various angles. This can be evaluated from factors internal and external students or because of other factors contained in the self-teaching as a major source of the learning process. By addressing the root problem at least we will know estuary problems which makes the process of teaching and learning activities are monotonous, linear, one direction only and tends to be passive to be used as a benchmark of what to do completion.
After the basic root of learning practice methodology decomposes, then the next process of teaching and learning activities can be used to approach the process of teaching and learning activities in both directions. This emphasizes the active role of the students, especially within and generally beyond the process of learning it, whether it be questions even to the disclaimer regarding material presented to these students. It would be a lot of positive things that can be drawn from this two-way learning process than on the negative side. Teachers as much as possible to free the hierarchy ‘teacher-students’ with an egalitarian approach to the transformation of mutual understanding where the ‘shortage’ of learners and then infiltrated through exposure-exposure to information that stimulates arousal stimuli such learners’ learning.
Another thing which support the empowerment of learners achievement that is about the process undertaken in the school guidance whether it comes from the teacher, the class representatives, as well as guidance counseling. Broadly speaking, most of the guidance which the school’s done or carried out is given if a student gets a problem, both academic and non-academic issues, so in this new process is the guidance given by the home room teacher even in school guidance counseling found it. This applies not absolute, meaning that there are many students and female students who on their own accord for guidance in the form of advice or guidance other than teachers, home room until the Guidance and Counselling (BK) to achieve the desired goals and objectives.
Once we see the various arguments of these interviews, a glimmer of conclusions can we draw from a myriad of handcuff-trace problems that almost the educational ideals of both institutional and instructional, that the education process will run successfully if the balance of consciousness to realize national education goals of various parties, in accordance with three-centre (tripusat) education (community, school, family) plus with support from within the individual consciousness itself, so that we can say it as a system to achieve national goals that can not be standing strong on its own .


Communication as supporting teaching and learning process

It is very ironic that the teaching we do on our day-to-day life has a goal of that is very idealistic to realize the whole person both life and body but if we look beyond the fact that happened in reality we often see that most of the teaching conducted in schools or an institution in the name of a good education from primary level to upper level college and even classical in the sense given by teachers in this respect as a teacher giving an explanation to a number of learners orally, if only so we can try to achieve our noble goals, or is there other supporting?

Of course all that happens in this life there must be other support which can become very significant at all in order to achieve one goal. Therefore, factors that can support the success of the learning process between teachers and students to achieve their goals one aspect that we often ignore and we should look at is the communication process that occurs therein.

Indeed in classical lessons given to the group mass or mass is very effective for the purpose of conveying information to say it once or several times. A problem can come to many listeners, but in the aspect of teaching and learning there is more than just one aspect that must be taken into account, and one of the aspects of teaching and learning is communication, as we have mentioned above. And may we say that with the communication process a learning process can we know the extent of its success.
Models of communication in the classroom is one model that is deemed sufficient by presenting the components of the existing communication as well as faculty, students, media and even the formulation and interpretation of the results of the learning process. And that became the core of the problem is analyzing the components of communication by using the paradigm model or any symptoms. And hopefully with the existence of analyzing this component is expected to bring benefits both for students, teachers, and institutions and hopefully from this model can apply and creates good communication of teaching and learning process with the aim of increasing the quality or quantity and of education that exist today objectively.

Communication simply we can say as an interaction involving the two correlation interrelation between two people or more in order to realize a goal that will achieve together. In a communication interaction that happens in it can be passive and even can be active. This means that communication is passive in that process of interaction that occurs between the communicant and communicators is only one direction only without the existence of a reciprocal process in it, while the communication process we can say progress is active when the interaction between the communicator and the communicant place dynamically towards a progression towards the achievement of.

So in this case the communication process takes place in the teaching and learning activities that have been observed can be said that the teaching and learning activities that take place between teachers with learners actively ongoing two-way or reciprocal communication process whereby the fall of the holders of information sources in this teacher to the recipient of such information or the students who are in college activities, which ran on a reciprocal basis.
And in this case means signifies an indication of a feedback communication between the authorities or the teacher and the recipient of such information, the communication process in accordance with one of the models is two-way communication, which is one statement from one communications expert, the model is:

By learning simple communication patterns that can be applied in class that is two-way like this is expected to achieve the learning objectives themselves better because of evaluation of each activity so that an increase in quality that continues to move towards the better.
Each communication component is expected to play an active role ranging from Who-Say what channel the which-In-To whom-With what effect. Who’s Who in the sense that as the teacher who gives lecture material (Say what) in the process of teaching and learning in the classroom (In the which channel) to the learners who follow (To whom) with the desired result by the instructor is (With what effect).

In the academic process (as far as the observations) the barriers that often occurs is if the material given to students tedious in the sense of material that should not be too important to be conveyed to learners on to say again that in terms of time efficiency is reduced and the resulting material should be conveyed to students this time to be reduced as well. So in this case also the moral responsibility of teachers in need as one of her responsibilities as a component of the success of a smooth process of communication and learning occurs effectively.

So far the development of science run continuously and never-ending so even humans as social beings who would never to communicate among others or even to itself in accordance with the wise words of ‘We can’t communicate’ notes that in another sense shows that we do not have and could only speak, but with our seat alone was stunned that we can communicate and converse with our own world.

Therefore, these two communication processes that must be applied in supporting teaching and learning is ideal for a dynamic communications model that demands a process of interaction of two-way personal communication responsibility means that the model is not only a piece of theory alone but must be coupled with a sense of sincerilyness and responsibilities of the various components of communication to realize the success of the learning process effectively.

Teachers as people who play a major role in a school activity should be able to deliver the student in achieving the objectives that have been planned asides it as the teacher’s professional staff required to work based on conceptual and theoretical foundation in advanced.
And in this case a teacher is also charged indirectly to interact well with the learners in order to realize the ideal teaching-learning process, where in these activities take place in both directions between teacher and pupil is not in one direction only, it is considered reasonable because we as humans can not survive without communication.

So when viewed from the lens components and related models in the classroom teaching-learning interaction, can be observed whether the teaching-learning process is the communication process going well or not.
