Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the patterns of communication and use of social media in learning activities related to thinking patterns, attitudes and behavior patterns of students. The research method used is the mix method. The objects in this study were junior high school teachers and students of Cirebon City. Samples of students, teachers and some staff were chosen purposively. The research instruments used were observation sheets and interviews, attitude scale tests and thinking skills tests. Data analysis carried out in descriptive qualitative manner is about school culture, students' thinking skills and attitudes. The results of the study indicated that teachers have not used all the potential of students to develop school culture; teacher communication patterns in learning were still formal and structurally academic; daily learning orientation was still low compared to school orientation every day; teachers and students have not been able to utilize social media in integrating subject concepts to increase the potential of thinking, attitudes and behavior of the students as well as interpersonal relationships; the teacher viewed local potential as essential material in developing school culture, attitudes and behavior of the students; factors that influence school culture, thinking, attitudes, and behavior of students include health, feelings, communication patterns, background, environment, self-confidence, religious beliefs, responsibility, honesty, awareness, desires, hopes, and spirituality.
