Abstract

The current era of disruption has had an impact on lifestyle changes and created many opportunities as well as challenges for the nation’s generation. The fact that the moral degradation of the nation’s generation is still quite concerning for our world of education, especially basic education, even though they are the golden generation of the Indonesian nation in the future. The purposes of this article are: (1) to describe the theoretical concepts and needs of character education for Indonesia’s golden generation in the era of disruption, and (2) to describe the challenges and direction of basic education development. The data collection method is a literature study. The data obtained were compiled, analyzed, and conclusions were drawn. The results of the study show that the need for character education for the golden generation of Indonesia is: (1) as a means of forming the nation’s civilization in the future, (2) as a means of fortifying the younger generation from the threat of spiritual unrest and emptiness as a result of digitalization, and (3) character education as a means to realize the ideals of a democratic society. Basic education development orientation aims to prepare students to become good, competitive, innovative personal qualities, prepare students to continue to higher education levels, explore and develop their interests and potential, and prepare them to participate actively in society.
