ABSTRACT

Teaching media is one of the important things in the learning process. It can stimulate and motivate elementary school students to learn the materials in the learning process. Marionette Tangram is an educational teaching media for elementary school students which can be used in geometry in mathematics and history subjects. This research was a developmental research using the 4D (four D) model of Thiagarajan. This paper summarizes how to define, design, develop, disseminate and apply the Marionette Tangram. Needs analysis of the media was conducted in the “define” phase. The prototype of the educational teaching media was created in the “design” phase. The experiment was carried out in the “develop” phase. In the dissemination phase, information related to the instructions on how to use the media was given to the teachers in many schools. The last phase was to register the copyright of Marionette Tangram media at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia. The results of this research show that Marionette Tangram is an innovative educational teaching media because it is formed from cultural values and can be used in the learning process as a teaching aid for mathematics and history subjects. Furthermore, it can be categorized into valid criteria; and the instructional application is effective.
