11:30 - 12:00Creating a Collegial School Environment

According to Glickman, Gordon and Ross-Gordon (2007), an effective school is one that delivers on the promise of education that promotes better democracy for all. It is in this regard that both conventional and congenial schools have failed not only their students, but also the teachers, parents, and community. Neither of these two schools have missions, values or goals that promote collaboration or growth for the students or teachers. First, this author will introduce the conventional model of education, which most schools today still employ. Schools using the conventional model are characterized by isolation and a defined hierarchy (Glickman et al., 2007). These traditional schools, while at a first glance seems like an organized well-oiled machine, are actually very disorganized in the fact that deadlines are met and kept regardless of whether the educators fully understand or implement the curriculum. Next, the lesser used, yet still seen to some degree congenial model of education will be examined. In these schools the administrations persistent attempt to create a welcoming and stress free environment for its educators and students has led to a system closer to anarchy than democracy. In order for both conventional and congenial schools to have success in the future, a paradigm shift towards a collegial model must occur. Collegial schools are characterized by purposeful adult interactions about improving school-wide teaching and learning (Glickman et al., 2007).

13:00 - 13:30Implementation of Child Friendly Education in Schools

I will share the experience of why the importance of child-friendly education in education in Indonesia is due to what has been done in our schools that with child-friendly education, making children more comfortable to undergo their education, they feel valued as whole people who need recognition and appreciation that makes them more realize the importance of education because honestly from the beginning I set up this school is only one of my goals for every child to get a quality education, every child why I emphasize every child because according to my experience when I went to school in formal school it seems quality education only for some particular children only those who are strong in the academic side who survive in formal education but children who have the strength of the other side of non-academic fields such as (music, sport, art, etc.) they lack the support of the school and this is what causes children can not express themselves as it is to make them a burden and ultimately cause them stress and ultimately comes the delinquency of children and adolescents who, if left, will make their future a bet and therefore we try to start from school we create a school environment where every child is rewarded for his or her potential and ultimately makes them understand that it is unfortunate that they waste their potential because they have a future.

16:30 - 17:00Teacher Learning Center Organisation Development at District/Cities level for Teacher Profesional Development

There are two stages teacher professional development ; Pre-service training and in-service training. To support in-service training, the government provides access to professional development at the national level  and at the Provincial level. Referring to the Teacher Competency Test Scores  with an average of 47 out of 100, indicates that in-service training for self-development and professionalism of teachers is still urgently needed. Education and Training Institutions at National and Provincial levels are still limited in providing access for teacher's training. One of the solution offered by Putera Sampoerna Foundation-School Development Outreach (PSF-SDO)  is the establishment of a Teacher Learning Center (TLC) at the District / City level.

11:00 - 11:30Empowering Students to Market Their School Through Social Media

Times have changed, and many schools are finding that they need to engage in strong marketing tactics to thrive in today’s market. That means more schools than ever are looking to develop marketing plans to guide them. Unfortunately, for those institutions building a school marketing plan for the first time, it can be overwhelming to get started. In some schools, it will be a challenge to plan and implement the school marketing, especially when they have limited resources. School marketing plans streamline what you do and outline why you’re doing it. Validating these important decisions is important for gaining support for the plan and ensuring that you continue to move forward with positive progress. Implementing the school marketing plan will require resources. However the fast development of the internet and digital technology is one of the advantages that the schools can use to deal with the limited resources. Understanding the challenges that the schools deal in marketing the school, especially schools with limited resources, Putera Smpoerna Foundation through its School Development Outreach (PSF-SDO) delivered a serial of  workshop and coaching mentoring activities on School Marketing by using the social media in 12 schools in Bojonegoro and Tuban as part of the School Development Program. The School Development Program that was facilitated by that was fully funded by ExxonMobil. The presentation will share how students can be the one of the resources and get involved in the school marketing and promotion in those 12 schools.

Behaviorism as one of guidance and counseling approach has many techniques to help students in developing expected behavior. Token economy or contingent reinforcement procedures as a technique in behaviorism has a chance in giving alternative solution for students’ misbehavior. This technique was a research topic of my thesis to gain master degree back in 2015. The background to this research was the importance of elementary students’ capability to manage discipline behavior. The research was aimed to proven token economy technique able to develop the elementary students’ capability to manage discipline behavior. The participants were one homeroom teacher and 38 students of SDN 01 Mampang, Depok. It used participatory action research as the research method and it was done in three cycles. The protocol of interview, observation and documentation were used as the instrument. Data was descriptively analyzed by doing reduction, interpretation, inference, and follow up phase to formulized the revision of steps for the next cycle. The research result showed that token economy was succeed in developing elementary students’ capability to manage discipline behavior. The discipline behavior was increase since the first cycle to the third one. Since its success as a research, I develop the strategy to be one of the activity in Lighthouse School Program, one of School Development Outreach program (a department under Sampoerna University), a program that gives intensive treatment to develop schools across Indonesia.

16:30 - 17:00Making Thinking Visible

Learning is a product of thinking and most people learn best when they see it. How can we learn how to play football is we never see the football players playing in a match. Unfortunately, thinking is also invisible and it is hard to learn the thinking if it is not visible. How can classrooms become places of intellectual stimulation where learning is viewed not in test scores but in the development of individuals who can think, plan, create, question, and engage independently as learners? Making Thinking Visible offers educators research-based solutions for creating just such cultures of thinking. How can we as educators facilitate and make our students thinking to be "visible". Educational researchers at Project Zero at Harvard have designed the tools called "Thinking Routines". By applying these routines, thinking becomes visible as learners' ideas are expressed, discussed, and reflected upon.
