INSTILLING CHARACTER IN STUDENTS TOWARDS BHINNEKA TUNGGAL IKA THROUGH VIDEO-BASED LEARNING MEDIA
This study aims to investigate how to instil the character of Bhineka Tunggal Ika in elementary school students through video-based learning media. Teachers aim to cultivate this character by using video-based learning with Bhineka Tunggal Ika as the material. Learning videos are designed using the Canva application, and students will watch and listen to the storyline about the material presented in the videos. The desired character traits to be instilled include patriotism and discipline, both in terms of time management and behavior. To enhance the students' understanding of Indonesian culture, the teacher includes pictures of traditional houses, clothing, and dances. By doing so, students will become familiar with the unique characteristics and patterns of different tribes in Indonesia, which will aid in their language learning. The formation of student character is crucial from a young age as it affects their psychological development and knowledge growth, enabling them to think more creatively and critically about the future in the era of society 5.0. This study is a classroom action research (CAR) using observation before and after the implementation of the video. This study employed 2 classes, class 5 with the total of 23 students and class 6 with the total of 13 students. The result indicated that the students’ characters of Bhineka Tunggal Ika were developed, in which they became more aware of how to act.
