Efforts to enhance teacher competency at Kampar Regency High School in learning physics using mechanical KIT
Keywords:Cognitive Abilities, KIT, Mechanics, Physics
The learning process at school cannot be separated from students' cognitive abilities regarding teaching material. Especially in physics learning material, students' ability to understand the material depends on how the learning process (understanding concepts) is emphasized. Physics material, especially mechanics, is sometimes difficult to describe in real life due to limited examples, but Mechanics KIT is one solution that can be used to help students achieve their learning goals. Of course, this process begins with the ability and mastery of using KIT by the teacher, in this case, the physics teacher. The formulation of the problem in this service activity is how to increase teacher competence in using KIT Mechanics in learning. This service activity aims to conduct training for teachers at SMA N 1 Kampar to increase competence and mastery of the use of KIT mechanics in learning. The results of the evaluation of activities, it can be seen that the competency ability to use KIT mechanics in physics learning by teachers has increased significantly.
