“We carry out this program as a form of contribution to the improvement of Indonesian education, especially through technology integration in learning in the era of the Merdeka Curriculum,” Andre Permana stated (13/12/2022).
The whole program will be implemented in two months until February 2023. The training sessions provided will highlight the implementation of the Merdeka Curriculum, including Learning Teaching Modules, Learning How to Differentiae, Analyzing Learning Achievements and Designing Learning Objectives, as well as Developing Learning Objective Flows.
