Adaptation of ECED During the COVID-19 Pandemic
SurveyMETER carried out the ECED Adaptation Study during the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Special Region of Yogyakarta from January to March 2021, with the support of the Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI). This study interviewed more than 1900 respondents who were school supervisors/administrators, school principals, teachers, and parents via telephone survey. The government was equipping school principals, teachers, and parents with an ECED learning module from home by prioritizing student involvement during online learning. It investigated the extent to which the policy intervention was rigorously proper and on target.
This study portrayed the gap in access to knowledge among stakeholders in early childhood education implementation during the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents and teachers should be the key actors in the ECED learning from home. Teachers are expected to equip parents through various game-based learning methods as an adaptation during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as in the 12 PAUD Learning Modules. Unfortunately, only a few of them use or know about these learning modules since most of the module owners and module training participants were not among those who directly accompany toddlers/children learning at home.
