TEACHER PROFESSIONALISM IN USING MEDIA AS AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LEARNING
The research method used in this research is a correlational approach which aims to find out whether there is a relationship between teacher professionalism in developing instructional media and the quality of early childhood learning. The teacher's task is not only to teach but also to educate, foster, guide and shape the personality of students to prepare and develop the resources that each student has. Professional teachers must make students who are moral, creative and innovative in technology. Technology does not only cover the use of hard technology but also soft technology related to lesson planning, innovative learning models for PAUD and other supporting skills. In efforts to master these two aspects, PAUD teachers as learning technology developers, together look for the right model or media in learning that will be applied inside and outside the classroom.
