Abstract

Knowledge and skills in using digital media are important for everyone, regardless of the occupation. One of them is a teacher. The use of various digital media can be useful for teachers in the learning process. Besides being useful for teachers as a means of delivering information, it is also useful for students in training to use digital media in the learning process. This study aims to determine the use of digital media in the learning process by the teacher. This research is a descriptive study using survey methods. The study sample was 112 Indonesian language teachers in West Sumatra. The research instruments used were questionnaires and interview guide sheets. The results of the study show that the media devices used have not been varied, policies that are known about the use of digital media have not been mastered, making many digital media creative content not mastered, the application of data transmission used has varied, and learning resources are still dominant through books. In general, the teacher agrees if the learning process uses online classes by relying on digital media. However, there are many obstacles if the policy is implemented, such as teacher competency, student competence, facilities and infrastructure, and other.
