FILKOM Lecturers Train the High School Teachers to Use Counseling Guidance Application

A team of lecturer service of the Faculty of Computer Science, Universitas Brawijaya (FILKOM UB) provided Training on the Use of Counseling Guidance Applications for Senior and Vocational High School Teachers on Tuesday (28/7/2020).

The training was conducted online and was attended by dozens of teachers from the counseling unit of SMA Negeri 1 Pandaan and SMK Negeri 1 Bangil. The team consists of four lecturers assisted by two FILKOM students, namely Fajar Pradana, S.ST., M. Eng. (Team Leader), Fitra A. Bachtiar, Dr.Eng, ST, M.Eng, Denny Sagita Rusdianto, S.Kom, M.Kom., Achmad Arwan, S.Kom, M.Kom., Diva Fardiana Risa and Ardi Wicaksono.

There are two material sessions in the training. The first material about the influence of the affective aspects of students presented by Dr. Eng. Fitra Bachtiar, S.T., M.Eng.

Meanwhile, the second material is about socialization and assistance in the use of the Counseling Guidance (BK) Monitoring System that was delivered by Achmad Arwan, S.Kom., M.Kom. Training on the use of the BK monitoring system is considered important because so far, the recording has only been done manually, so it is not well organized and it is difficult to monitor students in the future.

In the first session, Fitra explained that the development of children’s education according to the Bloom Taxonomy concept was divided into three classification models, which are cognitive, affective and psychomotor.

The cognitive aspect is related to reasoning or thought processes. The affective aspect relates to emotions, while the psychomotor aspect deals with movement behavior and physical coordination. Thus, affective education can be defined as education for the social development of individuals, feelings, emotions, morals and ethics. Affective factors are important in learning because of the research results that have been stated that emotions and motivation affect the quality of someone’s cognitive and decision-making abilities.

In the second session, Arwan explained how to use SMART, the Stress Management System. With SMART, the consultation logbook will be recorded in the system for each counseling session.

In addition, this system also provides a feature to detect student stress levels based on social media “twitter”.

Later, the main users of this system are students and those who monitor students namely BK teachers and class teachers. It is hoped that this system can facilitate recording and monitoring of student guidance and counseling, and can help implement the detection of children’s stress levels quickly.
