Suid Saidi


Education can be interpreted as all efforts done by humans to be more advanced and developed, whether done individually or independently and in groups that are held in various locations both at home, school, community, place of worship, environment, or a combination of various locations. The purpose of education is to make other individuals (students) better. The process of educational activities can be done inside the room/school or outside the school, where interaction occurs between one person and another person or group to change student behavior by providing learning material and knowledge from useful learning resources. So, in learning and teaching activities cannot be separated from mental and social activities that need each other, thereby raising the need for contributions and psychological science that can become a provision for educators to be able to carry out their duties as humanist and competent educators. Information and technology in the era of globalization at this time significantly affect activities in schools. Information and knowledge are straightforward to spread to anyone who wants and needs it. The aim of the application of educational psychology is on how to form a productive learning atmosphere. That two main ingredients can be a measure of the effectiveness of the teaching process; professional skills and knowledge as well as commitment, motivation, and care from teachers. For teachers, this is an extraordinary challenge to increase students' potential in facing the growing 4.0 revolution by exploring the potential of students to be able to be skilled and motivated.
