In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, online learning has become the main alternative to the learning system taken by schools. The implementation of the online system certainly affects teachers' performance as the frontline in the success of a learning process. In this case, at least the teacher's performance has been directly or indirectly influenced by the learning system that is being carried out. This study aimed to describe and analyze the performance of teachers’ competencies during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study relied on a quantitative descriptive method, and the data were taken from the results of a questionnaire distributed to 89 teachers. The research instrument used questionnaires and interviews, which had previously been tested for validity and reliability. Furthermore, the results of the questionnaires were analyzed based on theories related to teacher performance and theories related to teacher competency development. The result showed that the teachers’ performances with the online learning system during the COVID-19 pandemic were varied and greatly influenced by the competence of the previous teacher. Based on these results, it could be concluded that teachers with high competence had higher performance than teachers with low competence in online learning. Likewise, there was an interaction between the ability of teacher competence and teacher performance in online mathematics learning. Further, the average performance of mathematics teachers in online learning was lower than the performance of teachers who use ordinary learning.

Integrating Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in education is a vital part of improving learning outcomes. One such ICT-responsive technical-vocational (Tech-Voc) school is to utilize Poll Everywhere (PollEv) application as a web-based intervention and audience response system in online classroom teaching. This cross-sectional study was conducted on Grade 7 learners of the Strengthened Technical-Vocational Education Program at a public secondary school. PollEv was used as a teaching and management tool for thirty-one Tech-Voc learners during the school year 2020-2021. Analyzing the data through the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, the mean was used to describe the pretest and posttest scores, while the Wilcoxon signed-ranks test for dependent samples was utilized to determine the significant difference in the learning outcomes before and after the intervention. The findings showed better performance and "very satisfactory" experience of learners using PollEv and became a tool for managing a Tech-Voc classroom considering the emotional, behavioral, and cognitive aspects involved in virtual environments. The behavioral intentions toward the PollEv application were influenced by its usefulness, ease of use, and satisfaction of learners. Once a technology is incorporated in online spaces, learners engage accordingly by keeping their attention to classroom tasks and achieving better academic results.

Conflict and social change are a couple that influences each other. Conflict inevitably drives social change. Social changes also inevitably lead to conflict. These conditions can manifest in large or small sizes. Every society that exists on this earth in their life will certainly experience what is called changes. The existence of these changes will be known if we compare by examining society at a particular time which we then compare with the state of society in the past. Changes that occur in society are a continuous process. This situation means that every society will, in fact, experience changes. This study aims to collect argumentative views on the relationship between conflict and social change. The conclusions of this study have a significant impact in providing illustrations and projections of what social situations occur before and after conflicts or social changes occur. This research is a discourse relation analysis research. This type of research analyzes the relationship between two or more variables and then describes each contextual factor. This study concludes that the argumentative view of implying and exposing the relationship of conflict to social change is vital and sensitive.

With the development of high-tech, digital cities and other information means, higher education is an important part of modern talent training. The construction of higher education is also related to the university system, the construction of university campuses, and the connotation of university culture. Therefore, the construction of university campuses has long been an issue of academic concern. Therefore, the influence of university campus architects also provides a good environment for university campus construction and university culture and provides a new research direction for higher education campus architecture. This paper uses CiteSpace software and Web of Science visual analysis platform to conduct text mining and visual analysis of the existing literature in the international Web of Science academic database and plot the number of published papers, subject distribution, and frequent citations of "University Campus Architect Research". A knowledge graph of literature and research hotspots, research topics, and research trends. Combing the current research status of University Campus Architect, we hope to provide theoretical support for further research on improving higher education campus construction and the frontier dynamics of academic research.
