Like Western theory, educators in Islam are people who are responsible for the development of students by trying to develop all students' potential, both affective (feelings), cognitive (creativity), and psychomotor potential (intentions). Education is a cultural process to improve human dignity that lasts throughout life. Education is always developing, and is always faced with changing times. That is the cycle of development of changes in education, otherwise education will be left behind by the rapid changes of the times. For this reason, changes in education must be relevant to changing times and the needs of society at that time, so it is important to plan as early as possible which can be stated in the Vision, Mission, Goals and Functions of Islamic Education.</em></p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Aziddin Harahap, Hasmi Syahputra Harahap, Richi Andrianto, Arman Harahap Design And Construction Of Fish Seed Grading Tools As An Early Introduction To Entrepreneurship At SMKN 1 Meureubo, West Aceh 2024-02-07T08:29:05+07:00 Citra Dina Febrina Mahendra Mahendra <p><em>This research-based community service aims to develop several research results from research teams and other researchers who are in the same field of science, namely the field of aquaculture or aquaculture, to overcome the problems faced by partners. This service was motivated by the partner's problem at SMK Negeri 1 Meureubo, West Aceh, namely that the results of raising catfish were less than optimal because catfish have cannibalistic characteristics so that in making a catfish grading tool, partners were able to increase the results of cultivating catfish. This is also supported by the absence of manufacturers making catfish grading equipment in West Aceh in particular and Aceh in general. Apart from &nbsp;that, making this grading bucket can also provide additional income for students at SMKN 1 Meureubo school through early introduction to entrepreneurship for students at school as well as to develop an entrepreneurial spirit and improve students' skills in making useful products in the field of Aquaculture. The method used in this service is through a direct approach and active participation of students in making catfish seed grading buckets. Activities include outreach in the form of lectures and discussions, practice of making grading buckets directly at school as well as mentoring the service team in developing the entrepreneurial spirit of students at partner schools. The output of the service that has been carried out is a draft article to be published in a national journal. Output also produces products that can be marketed online and offline.</em></p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Citra Dina Febrina, Mahendra Mahendra Interpersonal Communication Training To Reduce Student Aggressiveness 2024-01-11T07:49:19+07:00 Anifa Tuzzuhroh Nurbaiti Abdul Hadi Moh. Khoerul Anwar Anifa Tuzzuhroh Nurbaiti <p><em>Aggression is a behavioral problem that often occurs in students. Aggression can be caused by various factors, one of which is a lack of interpersonal communication skills. Excessive aggressive behavior can have a negative impact on students and their environment. Aggressive students can experience problems in learning, socializing and establishing relationships with other people. Aggressive behavior can also cause problems in the school environment, such as brawls, bullying and sexual violence. Interpersonal communication training is one effort that can be made to reduce aggression in students. Students who need to reduce aggression are students who have excessive aggressive behavior or often carry out aggressive behavior. This study aims to test the effectiveness of interpersonal communication training in reducing aggression in students. The research results show that interpersonal communication training can reduce aggression in students. Students who took part in interpersonal communication training showed a significant reduction in aggression scores compared to students who did not take part in the training.</em></p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Anifa Tuzzuhroh Nurbaiti, Abdul Hadi, Moh.

This article is written to present the results of the FGD that illustrate that SMEs actors do not fully understand a SET concept-based accountability in managing their business. Accountability is still understood only as making financial reports in order to obtain credit. In understanding a SET concept-based accountability, SMEs actors must have an Islamic economics thinking paradigm that everything in this world belongs to Allah SWT and humans are only recipients of trust. Furthermore, based on the SET concept, there are three stakeholders in the Company that need to be met in accountability’s indicators, namely God, humans and the universe. Accountability applied by SMEs actors does not yet fully understand that the business they own is a mandate from Allah SWT which must always be accounted for, such as accurate financial reports are made so that Allah's rights are not oppressed, for example in the form of zakat.</em></p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Lince Bulutoding, Nur Rahmah Sari, Raodatul Jannah, Della Fadhilatunisa, Namla Elfa Syariati, Suhartono Suhartono Community Empowerment Through Selling Price Determination Training At The Border Market Of Humusu C Village, Insana District, North Central Timor Regency 2023-12-12T13:55:47+07:00 Maria Odriana Veronica Moi Kristina Wada Betu Antonius Yohanes William Timuneno Viany Cecilia Pah Leopold M.T Dawu Manuel Brito Joao Canciao Freitas <p><em>This service will be carried out at the border market of Humusu C Village, Insana District, North Central Timor Regency, East Nusa Tenggara Province.

Concerning the community service that according to Willow Project theme, the lecturers as the facilitators of this community service assisted students who wanted to find a solution to the Willow Project issue, where they hoped that there would be several points regarding the impact and benefits of academia in the energy sector, particularly petroleum engineering. As a result of socialization regarding the Willow Project drilling, impacts and benefits have been imparted in the Community Service activities, which are separated into environmental impacts, climate impacts, and social impacts. Following an overview of the impact of the Willow Project drilling, the benefits of the drilling are explained, including job creation and economic benefits, energy independence, and tax revenue. The crux of the impacts and benefits given is that it is still envisaged that fossil energy would be used to increase jobs in the nearby community and globally. Aside from that, it is desired that the development of renewable energy, the reduction of drilling in conservation areas, and the preservation of environmental integrity would continue.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Prayang Sunny Yulia, Apriandi Rizkina Rangga Wastu, Arinda Ristawati, Pauhesti Pauhesti, Ridha Husla, Gracia Betaria Jacqueline Timpal, Puri Wijayanti, Reza Aryanto, Widia Yanti Increasing The Competitiveness Of Msmes In Parongpong District Through The Use Of E-Commerce And Branding Strategies 2024-01-23T23:51:06+07:00 Wahyu Wahyu Rafdinal Lusianus Kusdibyo Nugroho Hardiyanto Maya Setiawardani Mohammad Rizal Gaffar Abdul Malik Sayuti Tangguh Dwi Pramono Ivon Sandya Sari Putri <p>The purpose of this program is to develop modules and training modules developed to improve the performance of MSMEs in Parongpong District.
