DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIAL SCIENCE LEARNING VIDEO MEDIA FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS ABOUT LANDSLIDES
The world of education is currently being influenced by technological developments, especially in terms of the learning media used in the learning process. The tool for establishing a direct relationship between the work of subject developers and students is the learning medium. Video media is one of the information and communication technology media that can reach a wider audience and is the most widely used. Video content can help students learn in class, especially in the lower grades of elementary school. In addition, teachers must be able to create innovative and creative media and utilize school learning media because their role in the learning process is very important. IPS is one of the subjects taught in elementary schools. The subjects of history, geography, economics, sociology, and anthropology are all included in IPS. The aim of this integration is to teach elementary-age children how to solve social problems using methods from all areas of the social sciences. Learn how to instruct students in social studies to be able to think creatively and critically. However, delivering IPS content to students often presents challenges in their daily learning at school. One reason is the poor selection of learning tools and media . Teachers still use a lot of printed books and LKS in learning which makes the environment passive, makes students look bored, and makes them less interested in participating in social studies learning. Because class IV of SDN 2 Lamcot also experienced this, researchers were encouraged to examine the development of instructional video media in social studies education. The purpose of developing this media is to produce reliable and useful learning video media products. Researchers present landslide videos as social studies learning resources for fourth grade elementary school students using video media. Therefore, the purpose of writing this article is to explain the development of social science learning video media for elementary school students about landslides at SDN 2 Lamcot. The method used is descriptive qualitative. In this study, the researcher relied on his own observation to collect data through direct observation in the field. In the sense that researchers do not participate in these activities, then the observations are passive participatory observations (passive participation). SDN 2 Lamcot students were used as research subjects. The research data is a learning process based on video media.
