Analysis of the Academic Atmosphere of Public Junior High Schools in Remote Areas in Indonesia: Case Study in Tojo Una - Una District, Central Sulawesi Province
Abstract: The era of globalization and technological advances can have a negative impact on human life, namely the waning of the value of social care for fellow human beings and their environment. Especially among junior high school students (secondary school), they are too early allowed to use mobile phones (smartphones) by their respective parents. The role of teachers as teachers, educators and student assistants is needed in anticipating and overcoming these problems. Teaching as a teacher in remote areas is not as imagined, because it requires a conducive academic atmosphere. The academic atmosphere will shape the character of students as a quality intellectual generation through various activities in the school environment which are characterized by harmonious interactions between teachers, students, teachers and their interactions with their environment based on academic values. This study aims to analyze the academic atmosphere of State Junior High Schools in remote areas. The research respondents were teachers spread across 8 (eight) remote areas in the TojoUna - UnaRegency, Central Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. Data analysis used the average value of the responses/attitudes of the teachers as respondents to the questionnaire as a data collection tool. The results of the study show that the academic atmosphere of public junior high schools in remote areas of TojoUna - Una Regency, although they are in the sufficient category, which means conducive, is not optimal. Therefore, teachers are expected to make maximum efforts and invite parents of students to play a role in building a conducive academic atmosphere in order to build students' character as quality intellectual beings. Thus the harmonious interaction between students, students, teachers, including interactions with parents will get better in the future through various academic activities, which are expected to prevent the negative effects of smartphone use among students.
