[Cikal Setu] STEAM FAIR (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math)

As part of our actions to realize our goals to become a community of lifelong learner which make a difference through everything we do, we are having a subject showcase annually. This program is also a celebration of one academic year of learning process in our school, at the level of Middle Year Programme (MYP) to Diploma Programme (DP). This year, we have decided to make a collaboration of several subjects showcase, which we realize in this year’s CIKAL STEAM FAIR 2018. It is a collaboration of Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics learnings in our school that approach one same big theme, that is “Biodiversity”. The choice of this year theme is also in conjunction with this year’s UN International Day for Biological Diversity (World Biodiversity Day) to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. This year is the celebration of 25th anniversary action for Biodiversity. 

Diversity is chosen because we live in the world with variety of species. In order to know about the diversity (condition, quality, quantity) of living things on Earth, we have to have knowledge in science, skills in math, and aesthetic in art. We believe with this theme, we can raise the awareness of Cikal’s Community towards the importance of diversity in our life to obtain a sustainable life in the future. Hence, our tagline for this 2018 is 
“Exploring Wonders, Expanding Minds Conserving (Bio)Diversity”. 

In this STEAM Fair 2018, we will invite experts to share their knowledge and experience on their fields to our students as an eye opener. In addition to that, we have several other activities that aims to improve students ability in sharing their knowledge to school community, as well as to nourish their confidence and skill of being a lifelong learner. In order to achieve these, we conduct various activities such as workshops, games and exhibitions

Cerita Dari Seorang Ibu

nsa5

 

Mendirikan Cikal 18 tahun yang lalu, bukan pengalaman pertama saya sebagai pendidik perempuan, karena sejak beberapa tahun sebelumnya saya sudah mengajar di Fakultas Psikologi Universitas Indonesia. Tetapi mendirikan Cikal jadi pengalaman pertama saya mendidik anak sendiri di sekolah sekaligus anak begitu banyak sahabat dan kenalan baru yang kemudian menjadi bagian dari "keluarga besar". Hingga sekarang, kata keluarga jadi bagian yang sangat penting dari peran ini - lebih dari sekedar tulisan "Refleksi Cinta Keluarga" dibawah logo kami.

Menjadi ibu Kepala Sekolah sekaligus Ibu anak-anak di Cikal adalah bagian dari perjalanan hidup yang paling saya syukuri. Memikirkan kekhawatiran saat melepas anak berada di lingkungan berbeda, saya jalani sejak Fathi memulai kelas Adik-Adik di Cikal Kemang tahun 1999. Juga saat Nishrin pergi dalam perjalanan budaya ke Korea dengan kursi roda beberapa tahun lampau, sampai Nihlah memulai Middle School di Cikal Setu beberapa bulan lalu. Merasakan malu dan sekaligus lucu, saat anak saya (yang menolak disebut namanya 😊) lupa memakai sepatu ke sekolah karena terburu-buru dan sebagai konsekuensi harus mengikat kakinya dengan koran terbaru. Melakukan hal yang disesali masih sering saya alami, misanya saat tidak bisa hadir assembly karena perlu mengisi acara Cikal di kampus yang berbeda pada jadwal yang sama. Saya sadar betul, menjadi orangtua (dan pendidik) adalah peran yang penuh cobaan sekaligus penuh harapan.

 

IMG_3820

 

Perjalanan setiap keluarga dan bawaan setiap anak pasti berbeda, tetap sejak awal pendiriannya, Cikal percaya pada satu cita-cita. Mewujudkan komunitas pelajar sepanjang hayat yang berkontribusi pada perubahan pendidikan. Kami ingin setiap anak, dan orang disekelilingnya, mengembangkan Cikal 5 Stars Competencies, karena kompetensi inilah yang akan mempersiapkan kita menghadapi masa depan.

Kemapanan emosional, moral dan spiritual akan menjadi semakin penting saat 18 tahun mendatang anak-anak kita harus menghadapi perdebatan tentang rekayasa genetika atau berbagai dilema dunia. Wawasan yang luas dan kesehatan jiwa raga selalu menjadi modal saat bersosialisasi dalam keragaman dan menghadapi pola hidup yang tidak seragam. Pelajar yang merdeka menjadi penentu pengembangan diri yang utuh, dari prasekolah sampai kuliah bahkan karirnya nanti. Pemikir yang terlatih dan efektif, memungkinkan semua anak kita menjadi pemecah masalah bukan pembuat masalah, inovator bukan "follower" di era digital dengan segala perkembangan informasi maupun ekonomi. Menjadi anggota berdaya dalam masyarakat dunia yang adil, berkelanjutan dan damai adalah bagian tak terpisahkan dari mengapa Cikal berdiri dan kita semua ada disini. Saya paham betul, ini semua cita-cita besar yang kadang sulit dibayangkan dan sukar dipraktikan, terutama bagi orangtua dengan anak prasekolah yang baru saja belajar berjalan. Namun, di ulang tahun Cikal ke-18 ini, kami bangga luar biasa karena sudah menjadi saksi dari perkembangan begitu banyak anak dan keluarga yang menjadi bukti hidup implementasi Cikal 5stars competencies. Anak luar biasa yang merasa diterima dan didukung lingkungannya. Anak hasil pendidikan yang paham konsep essensial, bukan sekadar hafalan tidak relevan. Lulusan yang memahami bahwa ia terus menunjukkan kemajuan dan proses belajarnya saling berhubungan. Anak yang memilih tantangan, bukan sekadar beban. Anak Indonesia yang mengoptimalkan konteks komunitas, sehingga tahu betul manfaat belajar bukan hanya untuk nilai dan diri sendiri.

nsa2

 

Di Cikal kita tidak sendiri, setelah 18 tahun, kami adalah salah satu jaringan prasekolah hingga sekolah menengah dan pendidikan guru yang tumbuh paling pesat di negeri ini. Bagian paling menyenangkan dari keberadaan kita di Cikal adalah begitu banyak teman seperjalanan yang bermakna. Kita hadir bukan saja untuk anak masing-masing tapi secara sadar memilih komunitas ini sebagai tempat tumbuh anak-anak kita bersama. Sebagai pendidik, saya mempelajari begitu banyak hal dari kehormatan berinteraksi dengan ribuan murid dan sesama pendidik di Cikal. Sebagai ibu, saya menjawab begitu banyak pertanyaan dengan mengamati apa yang dilakukan oleh ribuan ayah, ibu dan sesama orangtua di Cikal. Terimakasih atas semuanya...Segala cara dan cerita yang saling kita bagi, setiap keberhasilan yang kita rayakan dan kekurangan yang kita refleksikan. Semoga Tuhan Yang Maha Kuasa memudahkan setiap langkah kita menuju cita-cita. Semoga upaya kita melakukan kebaikan menjadi keberkahan yang tak berkesudahan untuk semua anggota keluarga dan komunitas Cikal. Terimakasih telah menjadi bagian berarti dari Cikal yang sama-sama kita cintai.

Salam Hangat,
Najelaa Shihab
Head of School

ENGAGING TREASURE HUNT SCHOOL TOUR

Cikal QR Activity5


The first week at the beginning of the school year is a commencement period, a period to get to know the immediate surrounding and Cikal community . Back from a long holiday, students are all excited to see what’s new in Sekolah Cikal Cilandak. The building, new classroom setup, new teachers (as they are now in different level), new classmates, and new things to learn and explore.

Usually, teachers take students to go around the school, as a way to get to know the environment and people around the school. This year, grade 3 and 4 students are taking their treasure hunt activity to the next level. They use iPads to scan the QR codes. These codes are posted on the walls, each one contain clues or instructions, such as; “Rhythm, beat, is played in here, loud and clear” or “ you need to find the PYP Coordinator”. When they found the answer, they will see another QR code to scan for the next problem or questions to solve.


In short, we turn school tour activity into PokemonGO-like game, where the person who play it has to scan the surrounding, not by using augmented reality apps, just QR code reader and print-out QR codes posted the school’s walls.

Cikal QR Activity2 

 

QR code can be used in the classroom as well, it makes teaching and learning more fun, engaging and challenging. Here are some ideas:

Replacing boring written test or quiz into mobile and more interactive quiz activity. Create the quiz in Google Form, generate the link into QR code, print it on paper, and post it on classroom wall. You can include QR codes in bus stop activity, each QR code stands for one question /problem. Students can only move to the next station once they managed to solve the problem.

Differentiate Task. For example you are teaching about governmental system and you have some videos and articles for your students to go through. Divide the class into several groups, have them watch different videos or read different articles. Post the link into QR codes in several learning stations, have them discuss it in groups.
Treasure Hunt game/ Pokemonlike game. Use the QR code as clues for playing treasure hunt game. Insert links of riddles or clues that can lead the way to the next station. Just like we did for school tour activity in Sekolah Cikal.


Here is how to make a QR code:

  1. Copy the link of the file, video, website or social media page that you want to share.
  2. Open QR code generator such as kaywa.com, mobile-barcodes.com or beetagg.com, or just simply googled QR generator and it will display many webpage of QR generators.
  3. Once you received a png or jpeg image from the QR generator, you can share or print your QR code.

The children’s face beamed with excitement as they went around the school looking for another QR code to be found. Occasionally we heard them saying something like, “This is awesome!” and “I like this activity” and “This is the best treasure hunt ever!”.

Cikal QR Activity1

 

 

The use of technology has definitely adds zest in the learning process. Not only for the children, but for the teachers as well. We come to realize, that when handled well it can be a tool to ignite further learning and create ideas.

IT’S AN ADVENTURE OUT THERE WAITING FOR YOU WITH PANDU CIKAL

SCOUTING AND PYP PROGRAMS

In Communication unit under How We Express Ourselves, it becomes more interesting when students learn kinds of verbal and nonverbal communications. Scouting introduces Semaphore a system of signaling using flags where a sets of alphabets constructed in form of flag formation. It can be used to signal between ships, plane and also across open land.

 

Cikal Pandu PYP2Cikal Pandu PYP1

In Math area, Scouting supports students in learning directions through compass skills just in case they get lost in a forest they know how to find their way home. Another fun learning like in Measurement where students learn to read digital and analog clock. We set fun clock games where we asked students acted like an analog clock. With sets of instructions, they stretched their left hand as the short hand and the right hand as the long hand of a clock showing an instructed clock given (show me 07.00 am, 10.00 am etc).

The Scouting programs also encourage students to meet the purpose of PYP Transdisciplinary Skills where some of the dimensions of its aligned as well (Thinking skills: comprehension to grasp meaning from material learned; communicating and interpreting learning. Social skills: Accepting responsibility, Respecting others, Cooperating, Group decision-making. Communication skills : Listening to directions; listening to others; listening to information).

Gerakan Pramuka Indonesia or Indonesian Scout movement is a name of non-formal education organization that performs scouting education in Indonesia.

Its founded in 1961 by Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono IX, and in 2011 Gerakan Pramuka Indonesia became the world’s largest scout association in the world with 17 million members.

Pramuka is derived from the word “Praja Muda Karana” which means young soul that loves to work. As well as family education that is wrapped as an interesting, fun, healthy, arranged, focused, and practical activities that may be done in nature as an outdoor activity.

Every activity is performed according to the Scouting Basic Principal (Prinsip Dasar Kepramukaan) and Scouting Method (Metode Kepramukaan). The final goal of these activities is the building of character, morals, helping boys and girls become happy, healthy and useful global citizens. It also helps children embrace adventure and succeed in life and furthermore fosters personality development of the students and helps them to aware their sense of social responsibility. To become disciplined, courageous and noble character of young people in Indonesia. We also must know that scouting in Indonesia was built as an education system that was adjusted with the interests and development of society and the nation of Indonesia.

ACTIVE GLOBAL CITIZENS

As practical education, Scouting at our school also empower students as active global citizens. As they said the Scout promises every Wednesday practice and If they really want to keep their promise of ‘helping others’, they have to help themselves first be a role model for their community that cultivates their practical wisdom and character and then continually puts these to good use. A fantastic example of vibrant and exciting Scouting events at our school was when the Cubs shared the sandwiches that they made during the Scouting session to all of school community who help them every day at school and at home. SALAM PRAMUKA!

The Essential Of Essential Agreement

Starting the school year has always been exciting not only for students but also for teachers. We, as a teacher would never know the children we are going to deal with for the whole year through. Thus, setting up an essential agreement at the beginning of the academic year is essential as we want to establish a good and conducive class.

Rules or agreement?

Teachers in some school are now starting to move away from using the word “rules” to using the word “agreements”. What are actually the differences between rules and agreement in classroom? Rules are imposed.  They’re set for the purpose of compliance.  Any violations of rules should be punished to maintain the power of the rule.  Rules are “above people.”  The locus of control is external, teaching us that we don’t have the power – so we’re pushed toward obedience rather than internal motivation.

Agreements are negotiated.  They’re set for the purpose of collaboration.  Any violations should be discussed to learn.  Agreements are “between people.”  The locus of control is internal, teaching us that we have the power – so we’re pushed toward intrinsic motivation.

However, although some teachers are no longer use the term “rules” in their classroom, some others are still using it because they might think what their classroom would be like without any rules. They don’t want to have a chaotic class so that they prefer using the “rules” instead of “agreement”

Wildy1

As for me, since i am teaching in an IB school, i prefer starting my class by creating an “essential agreement” to make sure that my class will function well and in a conducive way. Rather than teachers imposing their rules on children, everyone in the group works together to establish an agreement of how the class will function. Here are some tips of creating an essential agreement in class.

  1. Last year, i tried this with my students. First, i will let them watch some video about what a good classroom and a “not-good” one. After that, we brainstorm together. We ask them which classroom they would prefer studying in and ask the reason why.
  2. After brainstorming, we ask the students again what make a good classroom. Students will come up with various answers.  We can also ask  students to come up with things that might disrupt the class, anything that will make the class stray from its goals. For example, if students want to improve their listening comprehension or learn to think in English, it will be highly disruptive to hear students speaking their native language. Little ones might say that they don’t want any shouting, yelling, or hitting in class. Some students may say that they shouldn’t interrupt someone when he or she’s speaking.
  3. How to avoid disruptive behaviour. After getting some ideas about what disruptive behaviours are. We can brainstorm with the students about how to avoid the disruptive behaviours to make the class run smoothly. They might be quick to say that no shouting, yelling, or hitting is allowed in class. And to avoid interruptions and make sure everyone has a chance to speak, your students will suggest that they have to raise their hands. Try to phrase each of the rules in an affirmative way, for example, in a way that tells them what they should do and not what they shouldn’t do. Having your walls filled with “No shouting”, “No eating in class”, in other words, no, no, no everywhere does not contribute to creating a very positive learning environment either.
  4. Now you have to put it all in writing, after all, verbal contracts won’t hold water in a classroom. They can make a poster illustrating the essential agreement, and then put it up some place where it’s clearly visible. You can also give students some post it and have them write about what they just said about how to avoid disruptive behaviours to maintain a good and conducive classroom. Ask them to paste/stick into the place provided and together read all the agreement.
  5. So, to sum up, make sure each and every student is clear and agreed on the agreement. They should also understand that the agreements are subjected to any changes should there be any cases which require any changing or improvement of the agreement.
