Learning Color Theory in Elementary School Using Basic Infographic Media During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Teguh Indriana Pangestu, Asri Wibawa Sakti


COVID-19 first appeared in Wuhan, China in December 2019. The virus attacks the airways and causes respiratory tract infections. In a relatively short time, the virus spread to other parts of China and then to other countries. Responding to the impact of the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Indonesia is aggressively conducting learning media, one of which is infographics. Infographics are one of the media that can be used to attract learning to elementary school students. In infographics, there are visual elements that are also important to attract the attention of the target audience and even help convey messages or information. The method in this study uses quantitative research. The results showed that the post-test value was greater than the pre-test value, this shows that students have increased understanding of color theory after being given an understanding of color theory Therefore, infographic media can increase students' absorption of color theory. Students' understanding of color theory can be improved with interactive learning such as relevant infographic media used during the pandemic where learning is carried out online.
