Abstract—This study aims to improve student learning outcomes by applying VideoScribe’s Sparkol media. This study uses a type of classroom action research. This classroom action research went through two cycles in which the researcher acted as an observer. Each cycle consists of planning, implementing, observing and reflecting. The research subjects were Grade IV students. Data collection techniques are carried out by observation and learning achievement tests. Data were analyzed using descriptive analysis. The findings obtained in Cycle I indicate that the actions taken have not been successful. This is evidenced by the absorption of students who have not reached the expected completeness criteria. After reflection and implementation of Cycle II, the action shows an increase. This can be seen after the learning outcomes test shows that students’ absorption has reached the expected minimum mastery. Based on these findings it can be concluded that VideoScribe’s Sparkol media can improve student learning outcomes in elementary schools and it is recommended to be applied on an ongoing basis in learning activities to hone students’ cognitive intelligence so as to obtain maximum learning outcomes.
