Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has made school services done through online learning. Although the development of ICT-based learning has been introduced for a long time, most schools in Indonesia still use conventional methods for its learning process. Therefore, many problems were faced when the Covid-19 pandemic occurred, such as the readiness of technology infrastructure, human resources, and systems management. This study aims to explore the challenges of implementing learning process during the Covid-19 pandemic era, in terms of (1) infrastructure and (2) digital competence in online learning at elementary schools. This quantitative descriptive study was conducted using a survey method. The primary data were collected from parents, teachers, and elementary school students who were selected purposively by considering the geographical location and the socio-economic status of parents in Bandung. Data collection was carried out through a designed questionnaire of google-form, and its distribution was carried out through the Parents’ WhatsApp at school group. Data analysis was performed using percentage techniques (%) and non-parametric statistic tests of difference for more than two groups (Chi-Square). The results showed that: (1) The education level of teachers and students’ parents tends to be lower at outskirt school locations. It is also in line with its vulnerable economic potential based on the type of parents’ occupation; (2) Online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic era has taken place in elementary schools, either located in the main, center, or outskirt, with a variety of challenges and different levels of fluency; (3) There are differences in the challenges of implementing online learning in the Covid-19 era, in terms of infrastructure readiness, competence, and governance, either located in the main, center, or outskirt; (4) There is no difference in governance of online learning readiness between schools located in the main, center, or outskirt. All schools tended not to prepare special guidance or directions for online learning, let alone data plan and network help.
