PT. Kandel

PT Kandel, (http://www.kandel.co.id) based in Alam Sutera, Tangerang, Indonesia, provides products and services to enhance science and math education in elementary and middle schools in Indonesia. Its staff works in several areas of expertise, from book publication to multimedia on-line delivery. They work on the development of science and math education systems at the national level as well as on initiatives with limited scope and very specific purposes, such as small school-based learning systems.

Kandel’s primary focus is on improving science and math learning. The emphasis is the improvement of basic skills and knowledge of science and math among school students and teachers. The teaching and learning materials are designed and created by Kandel to eliminate the phobia on science and math among learners. The company has been producing books, CD-ROMs, and exhibits that prompt students’ and teachers’ curiosity and excitement. Using “fun” and “interesting” as the main themes of learning materials; Kandel is becoming one of the major learning companies in Indonesia. Indeed, its products and services with “Asyik, Mudah, dan Menyenangkan” (fun, easy, and interesting) label have been a household name in many schools in Indonesia, both in schools at big cities and small villages alike.

Kandel’s reputation is always high because of Prof. Yohanes Surya, Ph.D’s patronage and support. Prof. Surya has been training Indonesian students to win gold medals in the International Physics Olympiad (IphO) since in the 90s. He assists Kandel’s creative staff to embark on a challenging endeavor to make science and math the most interesting subjects in schools. As a result, Kandel staff members are becoming leaders in the appropriate use of technology to address issues of multimedia learning and quality teaching. They use Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) such as computer graphics, online learning portals, and digital video to improve the teaching of science and math in the classrooms. They also employ more traditional technologies such as books and worksheets to deliver interactive instruction where Indonesian school systems rarely utilize.
