These skills are used to access, manage, integrate, analyze and evaluate the information needed and obtained, build new knowledge and create relationships or communication with others to participate effectively in society. This study aims to explore and explain the application of digital literacy in Early Childhood Education (ECE) institutions. The research method is descriptive quantitative with a survey technique. The instrument used is a questionnaire in the form of a Google-Form (G-Form) which is distributed online via Instagram, WhatsApp, and email. The population is ECE teachers, and a sample of 318 ECE teachers from various provinces was collected randomly. The data collected were analyzed descriptively with simple quantification. The results of the study indicate that the application of digital literacy in ECE can be implemented in a limited way and the implementation process must involve teachers and parents/guardians. The recommendation conveyed was the need for strict supervision for the implementation of digital literacy in early childhood.</p> 2022-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Sri Tatminingsih https://journals.researchsynergypress.com/index.php/ijeiece/article/view/528 Educate Children on Early Age Based on the Values of Sunda in Islamic Perspective 2021-05-17T21:23:58+00:00 Rostika Srihilmawati srihilmawatirostika@student.upi.edu <p>The purpose of writing this article is to describe how to educate children based on Sundanese values in an Islamic perspective.

Creativity in kindergarten student learning aims to develop students' curiosity and develop their imagination. It is suspected that teacher communication in telling a story using the storytelling method will help increase student creativity in Kindergarten in the city of Bekasi.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Purpose</strong> – This study aims to: 1) analyze the effect of teacher communication variables on the creativity level of kindergarten students in Bekasi City. 2) analyze the storytelling method variable as a mediator variable between teacher communication and students' creativity level.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong> – The research method uses the quantitative-correlation method, namely calculating the relationship between variables using the SPSS application and the Sobel calculator to calculate the mediator variable, whether it can be used as a mediator variable after being calculated by using a Sobel calculator. The population of this study was kindergarten students in Bekasi City who were taken randomly. The research sample was determined in kindergarten schools using the storytelling method as a learning method. Randomly selected, namely private kindergarten "Islam Mentari" and Islamic kindergarten "Gema Nurani". Of the two kindergartens, the respondents were parents of students from the two kindergartens. as many as 60 parents of students, namely 30 parents of Mentari Islam students, and 30 parents of "Gema Nurani" students..</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Findings</strong> – The results showed 1) there was an influence of teacher communication variables on the creativity level of kindergarten students in Bekasi City. The value of R = 0.381, and R² = 0.145, so it can be said that teacher communication contributes to the storytelling method by 14.5%. This means that there is an influence of teacher communication of 14.5%, and the remaining 85.5% is influenced by other variables not examined in this study &nbsp;2) there is an effect of teacher communication on the level of creativity of students, and the storytelling method as a mediator is significant at the level of p = 0.05. Results of the Sobel Calculator calculation, can be explained that the Sobel test value is test statistic value = 2.080, standard error value = 0.090, P-value = 0.038. it can be seen that the value is 2,080 &gt; p-value = 0.038, meaning that the Sobel Test calculation shows a significant level of = 0.05, indicating that the Storytelling method can be a mediator variable. This means that the test results show that the storytelling method can be a mediator variable in research between teacher communication variables and students' creativity levels.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>L</strong><strong>i</strong><strong>mi</strong><strong>tations</strong>– there are limitations of researchers when taking data into the field, then it is done using google form. In addition, the limitations of this study were that it was conducted in kindergarten schools in 2 private kindergartens..</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Originality/value</strong> – This research can be trusted as the researcher's original research and case selection in kindergarten schools using the storytelling method</p> 2022-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Afrina Sari; Hermansyah Hermansyah https://journals.researchsynergypress.com/index.php/ijeiece/article/view/880 The Deteriorating Effect of Poor Parental Skill to Children and Teens Mental Health 2022-05-19T00:55:16+00:00 John Michael Sasan johnmichaelsasan27@gmail.com Ma.
