Mini Research Analysis Of Junior High School Science Learning Problems In Facing The Era Of Industry Rovolution 4.0 And The Era Of Society 5.0

Yeni Agustin, Lufri Lufri, Ali Amran, Yuni Ahda


In the era of the industrial revolution 4.0 and the Era of Society 5.0, it demands quality human resources so that they are able to compete in global competition. Through science learning, learning about objects and natural phenomena cannot be separated from critical and creative thinking skills. The purpose of this mini research is to find out the ability of junior high school students in science learning on critical thinking and creative thinking skills. The research method is a mini quantitative research on questionnaires distributed to 20 science teachers and 120 junior high school students. The results of the research show that only 40% answered that they already believe they have critical thinking skills. Meanwhile, less than 50% of teachers have developed aspects of critical and creative thinking.
