Title : Digital Comics as a tool for teaching speaking lesson for special needs' students at Politeknik Negeri Jakarta
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Politeknik Negeri Jakarta (PNJ) is one of state vocational higher institutions in Indonesia which offers a variety of educational programs. It opens diploma 3 and Diploma 4. Based on the decree of Minister of Education, PNJ must serve and facilitate students with special needs. Therefore, it opens Diploma 3 program (Marketing Management) for students for special needs. Mostly, they have IQ below 100 and others are autism. That is why teachers must find the way to teach English (especially in Speaking Lesson) in order they can participate. To assist both teachers and students to learn, using digital comics is one of the teaching methods that English teachers use. Based on CALL, series of comics are made by using the tool of cartoon story maker. By using the application of Comic Creator and Paint Tool, the software is made and it contains some dialogues about some topics, such as: greeting, having holiday, and leisure time. Slow learners and autism students are able to follow the dialogue by repeating it. This will make them enjoyable to learn English. Digital comics are equipped by not only pictures but also sounds to teach them how to pronounce the important words. By doing this way, students find the learning process fun and interesting.
