Abstract—The Covid-19 pandemic has made face-to-face
learning unable to take place in class. Therefore, ICT from
various platforms is the main choice that must be used,
especially in Indonesian language learning for junior high
schools. However, the efforts to improve the professionalism of
Indonesian language teachers in utilizing ICT for online
learning have not been carried out. This study aims to describe
1) the learning tools that utilize ICT, 2) the use of ICT in
learning, and 3) the obstacles to the using of ICT in Indonesian
language learning at the junior high school level in Buleleng
Regency, Bali. This research method is descriptive qualitative.
Data collection techniques were carried out using observation,
interview, and documentation study techniques. The data were
analyzed with the principle of TPACK used in learning. The
results show that 1) learning tools that utilize ICT contain
components that are integrated with internet technology, 2)
ICT in Indonesian language learning at the junior high school
level is used to deliver assignments, explain concepts, discuss,
and evaluate learning, 3) the obstacles in utilizing ICT by
Indonesian language teachers, among others, students lack
enthusiasm for learning, poor internet network, and some
students are not skilled yet in using applications/technology.
Theoretically, this study has an implication to second language
learning, especially on Indonesian language using TPACK
principle, both in school and higher study level.
