Testing the Idea of the Project

In order to start doing this project, there was an initial and essential step that I did, which was conducting two different online surveys. They are for students in the faculty of education of State Islamic University of Jambi, Indonesia and the guardians or parents that will send their children to learn in this Community Learning Centre. The survey took around one week, from 11th to 18th May, by using a google form. There were twenty participants from five different majors, namely English Education, Mathematics Education, Physics Education, Biology Education, and Arabic Education. Besides, each field was represented by four equal respondents, and equal gender, male and female. They are currently studying in semester six, which means that they will have teaching internship at schools in semester seven, or by the middle of this year. There were eight basic points asked regarding the students’ readiness and confidence to teach in the real classrooms, as well as their opinions about this program and reasons for joining/not in this program.

How to test my ideas?

light-bulbIn the previous article when introducing the idea of my project, I said that this is an ambitious planning, but it is of course possible. As this is quite a big project, this long-term program cannot be directly applied in the coming periods, and also it will be conducted in my home country, Indonesia, where most views and policies can apply, and it is relevant to my situatedness. However, in this section, I would like to explain about several steps that I will do in order to run as well as to test this project. Continue reading “How to test my ideas?”

The tittle, ‘Social Class and Inequality”, might seem simple, but the study around it is such complicated which needs to be read again and again until I eventually learn some new things. It is also interesting to notice the links between social class and education being shaped among societies. Continue reading “Going Up or Down? A Reflection”
