Improving students' problem-solving skills can be done through teaching materials. Teaching materials used in schools throughout Indonesia have not been integrated with local potential or wisdom. This research aims to develop teaching materials based on local wisdom to improve students' problem-solving abilities. The local wisdom raised in the teaching materials is the local wisdom of agriculture in Binjai Medan and the Balinese environment based on the local wisdom of the Tumpek Wariga ceremony. The development of teaching materials uses the ADDIE design model (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, Evaluate). The implementation phase uses a quasi-experimental method with a non-equivalent control group design in a high school located where the local wisdom applies. The results showed that the feasibility test of teaching materials and the readability test showed that teaching materials based on local agricultural wisdom in Binjai were 83.643% (very feasible) and 77.13% (high). In contrast, environmental teaching materials in Bali were based on local wisdom Tumpek Wariga. Successively very feasible (88.10%) high (95.39%). Students' problem-solving ability has increased with an N-gain of 0.67 (medium) on teaching materials based on local agricultural wisdom in Binjai and 0.71 (high) in Balinese environmental teaching materials based on Tumpek Wariga. The study results showed that teaching materials based on local wisdom of Agriculture in Binjai and Tumpek Wariga in Bali were valid and could improve students' problem-solving skills on Ecosystem and Environmental Change materials.

This study aims to analyze and identify teachers 'perceptions of TPACK that can influence teachers' knowledge and understanding of 21st-century learning. The research method used in this research is the survey method with a cross-sectional research design. The research subjects consisted of 25 biology teachers with different teaching experiences ranging from learning experience ages less than 5 years to more than 15. The results showed that biology teachers with TPACK perceptions were quite good. Teachers 'perceptions of 21st-century learning are constrained by aspects of understanding students' abilities on creativity and critical thinking indicators. The consideration of teaching according to the skills demands of the 21st century is quite good. Teachers with low teaching experience still have less understanding of the latest learning technology. Each range of teacher teaching experiences has different abilities and perceptions and considerations of 21st-century learning that can become the foundation of teachers in implementing learning in the 21st century that puts forward the 4Cs aspect.

The improper uses of peatlands degrade the lands, making them vulnerable to fire. Restoration and conservation of Indonesian peatlands have not succeeded, yet the forest fires tend to increase in severity and frequency. Therefore, it is urgent to have more systematic efforts to conserve the peatlands through education, mainly in schools. This study aims to assess the knowledge and perceptions of high school biology teachers about the peatland ecosystem and identify the potential for integrating peatland-associated materials in learning biology. Data and information were collected through observation, online questionnaires, literature reviews, and focus group discussions. The data were analyzed qualitatively to reveal the biology teacher's knowledge and perceptions about peatlands. Although peatland is a vital resource on the east coast of Jambi Province, most biology teachers in the region do not have good knowledge about peatland. However, the teachers aware of the importance of integrating peatland material in learning biology. They argue that the integration facilitates students to understand the surrounding environment, including the peatland. Therefore, in the long run, they could actively involve in protecting and conserving the peatland. This research has identified several peatlands-associated materials that are relevant to be integrated into biology learning.

Outdoor Learning has been recognized as a learning strategy to be learned and applied in enhancing students’ science process skills and awareness. However, the problem of waste management is the biggest challenge because it has not been realized in vocational high schools. Students’ science process skills and awareness are needed to develop the student's potential insight, attitude, and employability skills. This study aimed to analyze the relationship between science process skills and awareness using the outdoor learning process. The research type is a quasi-experiment. Samples were obtained from students and used purposive sampling. The essay instrument consists of 10 items developed of science process skills. Awareness is measured using a test questionnaire consisting of 19 items. The collected data were analyzed through prerequisite, Independent Sample test T-Test, Gain Score, multivariate analysis of Variance (MANOVA), and Pearson correlation tests. The result showed that the outdoor learning application enables to increase between science process skills and awareness aspects. The test results of each class Showed that the difference significant. It means there was a positive relation, shown by a significant score of 0.042 with 0.05 standard. The results of the analysis show the Pearson correlation value of the two variables is 0.291, it can be interpreted that the relationship between the two variables has a low relationship, but the average response value of awareness after learning increased compared before learning in the two treatment groups.

Despite the importance of Biology in several arears of human endeavors, teaching of practical has been handled with levity both by the teachers and the students. Studies indicated that teachers’ factors, ways and manners related to the teaching of the subject and qualification of Biology teachers are among numerous factors causing students’ poor achievements in Biology. Results from studies suggest that biological drawings could be used to facilitate students’ learning. This study assessed the knowledge of biological drawings possessed by senior school (SS) students based on frequency of Biology practical classes taught by teachers and teachers’ qualification in Oyo State, Nigeria. Descriptive research was employed. A total of 657 Biology students were randomly sampled for the study. Students’ Biological Drawings Achievement Test (SBDAT) was the instrument used with the reliability coefficient of 0.70 using test-retest method. Two hypotheses were generated and tested. Data were analyzed using t-test and ANOVA. Findings of the study showed that; the frequency of Biology practical classes students are exposed to and teachers’ qualification significantly influenced the knowledge of biological drawings possessed by students in Oyo state, Nigeria. It was recommended among others that students should be exposed to high frequency of practical classes. Also, qualified teachers should teach biological drawings in schools.
