Abstract

This study aims to employ Research and Development (R&D) Methodology to create an "Online Program to Empower Teacher Learning to Develop Students' Digital Literacy Skills" based on the notions of "Knowledge and Action is Power" and "Students are the Ultimate Goal of Any Educational Management." It consists of teacher learning development projects and a project where teachers use learning outcomes to help students progress. Six sets of teacher learning manuals and one workshop manual for instructors to apply learning outcomes to student development were created as a result of the R1&D1 to R4&D4 stages. According to the results of experimenting with manuals in the R5&D5 stage with 10 teachers and 60 students using one group pretest-posttest design experimental research in a school that is representative of educational opportunity expansion schools under the Office of the Basic Education Commission, it was found that the developed manuals were effective according to the research hypothesis: 1) teachers had test results of learning outcomes that met standard criteria 90/90, 2) the teachers' post-test results were significantly higher than the pre-test-results, and 3) the students' post-test results were significantly higher than the pre-test results. It demonstrates that the manuals for learning and implementation for teachers in the developed online program are effective and can be disseminated for the benefit of the population of educational opportunity expansion schools under the Office of the Basic Education Commission across the country.
