KAJIAN JURNAL BERGAMBAR SEBAGAI MEDIA KOMUNIKASI VISUAL BAGI ANAK
Some previous studies found that drawings are the most preferred media for children to convey their ideas and emotion; however, their messages through drawings are often misinterpreted by adults. This study was conducted to investigate whether drawings accompanied by textual content in a visual journal could better disseminate children’s opinion and emotion. The experiment was carried out by collecting samples taken from 22 third graders in Bandung. Their homeroom teacher was also recruited in this study. These children were invited to express their ideas or emotion in a journal which
was further divided into three categories, namely a journal depicting visuals only, a journal containing text only, and a journal composed of both. The home teacher evaluated these journals using a-5-point- Likert scale in order to assess the function of the journal as an avenue for the children to observe, reﬂect, explore, and create their social life in the school. The fndings showed that the visual journal was more inﬂuential than the visual only and the text only journals. Furthermore, the visual journal was able to strongly disseminate the children’s ideas and creation. Therefore, the visual
journal can be an appropriate media to convey children’s idea and emotion to adults.
