Abstract

Covid-19 pandemic forces everyone in the world to change lifestyle dramatically, including our education system. Teachers, parents, and students in kindergarten are required to do teaching and learning activities from and at home for quite a long period. Children in kindergarten who are ideally very limited in their gadget consumption now have more access to gadgets due to parents' burden in running the house and working from home. As the teacher also become parents, they face a double burden in teaching someone else’s children and children of their own. This research is the result of our community service activity to the teachers of kindergarten in Semarang by online meetings via group WhatsApp and zoom. It is aimed to evaluate the shift of understanding and attitude of the teachers regarding the use of gadgets and the learn from home activities before and after treatment. The treatment was intended to change the understanding and attitude of the teachers to be more positive in assisting and facilitating the kindergarten students to learn from home.
