AbstractMore sophisticated technology tools from laptops, smartphones, tabs and others make students dependence to use them and bring it everywhere they are. It would be better if they are used by the students to learn, not just for social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and others, but can be used for student’s learning. The purpose of this research is to develop a blog based on the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) in Algebra courses so that the students can access courses they need anywhere and at any time, review the effectiveness of blogs in supporting learning process algebra, review the practicality blog to use by students to have lecturing processes, use of sophisticated technology tools to support the learning process. The development model employed the model of Dick and Carey (2009). This development model steps was started by writing targetted competences, to analyze learning, to identify basic ability, to write performance objectives, develop instrument assessment, to select and develop learning materials, to design and conduct formative evaluation, to revise, and design and develop summative evaluation. The research results showed that validation of Educational Technology Expert of 88.7% and 89.71% by Mathematics Content Expert stated that the blocks with the RME approach was effective and practical, and could make the students understand the concepts of Algebra related to the real world. The results of testing a small group was 83.25%, and 85.50% for test large groups. From the tests that were done through pre-test and post-test, through the test of t> t table, it was obtained calculation results of t count = 6.48, while the values of the t table with significant levels of 5% and 1% were 2.09 and 2.84 respectively . Thus there were differences in the average value of learning achievements prior to and after the use of the blog-based learning (RME). In other words, the development of RME-based blog was effective to be used as a learning media and source to improve students' understanding of the Algebra materials.
