Incorporating Beliefs, Values and Local Wisdom of Betawi Culture in a Character-Based Education through a Design-Based Research
European Journal of Contemporary Education, v6 n3 p574-585 2017
This design-based research is part of three-year national projects examining the incorporation of local wisdom in a character-based education in primary school contexts. Specifically, the present study addresses two research questions: 1) what are local wisdoms of Betawi ethnic feasible to be incorporated in character based curriculum in primary school contexts, 2) what are potential classroom instruction methods for such a local wisdom integrated curriculum. To this end, I worked with historian, educational experts and practitioners. Multiple data collection methods were employed, including documents study, interview, survey, focus group discussion and observation. The collected data were analysed both qualitatively and quantitatively. This study has highlighted several beliefs, values and local wisdom from Betawi culture feasible for integration within classroom instruction. More importantly, the study has discussed an alternative instructional method that facilitated the incorporation of the beliefs, values and local wisdom from Betawi culture in classroom context.
