Abstract—The importance of the problem of disasters in Indonesia encourages the integration of disaster mitigation into learning in schools. One of the manifestations is the inclusion of disaster mitigation as part of geography subjects. However, the implementation of disaster mitigation learning still experiences several obstacles related to the use of instructional media that are less interactive. This study intended to determine the learning outcomes using the media-assisted inquiry model Google Earth Pro on the material of landslide disaster mitigation and adaptation. This research was conducted at the high school level in Magelang District by taking a sample of the MA (Islamic Senior High School) in Magelang Regency. The variables of this study are the Google Earth Pro and Powerpoint media as independent variables and student learning outcomes as the dependent variable. Data collection techniques used in this study were tests and questionnaires. Researcher used the t-test as a data analysis technique. Student learning outcomes of the experimental class increased by 0.34% while the learning outcomes of the control class experienced an increase of 0.2% and categorized into low criteria. Based on the Independent sample test in the equal variances, assumed section, it could be seen that the Sig. (2-tailed) is .001. This shows that there is a difference between the learning outcomes of two different types of media. The Google Earth Pro-based media has a higher influence on student learning outcomes.
Index Terms—Google earth pro, learning media, mitigation and adaptation.
