Development of Physics Mobile Learning Media Interactive through Scaffolding Approach

Syamiah Alfi, Suparno Suparno


This study aims to develop Physics Mobile Learning Media (PMLM) "Interactive. The approach used is scaffolding to improve Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) of high school students. This research is a development research. Classes used in this study are experiment and control class, each sample consists of 30 students of class X MIA conducted at State Senior High School 5 Kota Jambi. The results of this study indicate that PMLM media is feasible to use, the average result of expert and teacher assessment is 3.88 with very good criteria. While the questionnaire assessment of student responses to media PMLM and learning process of 3.86 is categorized very well. For the ability of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) students are measured using multiple choice questions with 20 question counts. The average value of pretest result of experiment class students was 49.46, then there was an improvement on the average postest score of 79.71, with an average gain of  0.60 indicating in medium category.
