The technology development has been affecting all sectors in life, especially education.

There are sorts of policies made by the government to support the digitalization of education. Those are conducted to make Indonesia can compete to other countries in the  Industry 4.0 Revolution era. While the goverment is trying to maxime the use of technology in education, we are faced by one big challege: the readiness of teacher to use the technology as a catalyst for the suceed of teaching and learning process.
