Analysis of English Reading Materials Based on ICT for XI Graders of Classical Music Students

Farah Salsabila Salsabila, Sri Sumarni, Ratna Dewanti


Vocational high school education has been a hot topic in Indonesia. It focuses on the development of students’ skills in specific fields and expects graduate students to be skilful and ready to work. English is one of the subjects that should equip students with particular knowledge and communication skills that support their work. However, the reading materials do not correspond to their vocational education needs and are not based on ICT, despite the goal of assisting students in gaining technical knowledge of specific skills. Teachers continue to rely on textbooks and have little interest in developing their own materials, despite the availability of ICT. The objectives of this study are to (1) identify and describe ICT competencies that are significantly owned by Classical Music Study Program grade 11 students, (2) identify relevant English reading materials for Classical Music Study Program grade 11 students and (3) construct relevant and potential ICT competencies in English reading materials for the Classical Music Study Program. The researcher will use a need analysis of ICT competencies and English reading materials for Classical Music Study Program. The result of this research exposed the ICT competency indicators, relevant English reading materials for Classical Music students, and ICT competency in English reading materials.
