Abstract


The use of a learning media in introducing Acehnese culture to early childhood education is an important element to do. This is because, with the help of the media, efforts to introduce the local culture will become more attractive and easily accepted by children. But now the availability of learning media in introducing a local culture for early childhood is still limited. So the researchers are interested in conducting this research that is a type of development research (Research and Development) which aims to develop a learning media in the form of quiet book based on the Acehnese culture for early childhood. Data collection in this study was conducted through interviews, literature studies and also validation questionnaire sheets from media experts and material experts. The development of the initial concept in this study consisted of the stages of defining, designing and developing. At the development stage, product validity was tested by media experts with a score of 79% (feasible) and a score of assessment by material experts at 86% (very feasible). Then after the revision of the quiet book media based on Acehnese culture, the percentage of assessment scores from media experts was 85% (very feasible) and the percentage of validation scores from material experts was 95% (very feasible). Thus, based on the results of validation by media experts and material experts, it can be concluded that quiet book products based on Acehnese culture are very feasible to be used as learning media for early childhood in introducing Acehnese local culture. Furthermore, the researchers will continue the testing phase of this quiet book media based on the Acehnese culture so that it can be developed and disseminated for the benefit of early childhood learning.
