Bearing several responsibilities while managing to stay active in the Assemblr Certified Educator (ACE) community can basically be draining and hard to tackle. But that's certainly not the case with Jujun Junaedi, our ACE of the Month in August 2022.

We see Jujun as one of the members that ignite positive vibes and contribute a lot to the growth of the ACE community.

Looking back to his first-ever encounter with the ACE community, Jujun shared that he actually came across the community through the Rumah Belajar group—a learning portal for teachers and students.

Apparently, the members of the group have been posting lots of ACE activities. "I was hooked with the fact of how easy it is to learn how to create 3D projects for any lesson," he adds.

Feeling interested to learn, Jujun decided to join the community and explore different activities provided in the community. He immediately noticed one thing; the ACE community gives freedom to the members to grow in the community.

"I feel like the ACE community focuses on freedom, so we as members can hold many events like webinars or workshops without hassle, as long as the Assemblr team is aware of it. We don't need to give permission letters from certain institutions to hold the events."

For Jujun, being active in the community means he can learn and acquire new important skills—one of them is being able to create AR-based lessons. Jujun says, "I think the community also provides me an easy access to communicate with the members without having to feel intimidated."

Whenever Jujun feels stuck and can't operate certain features in the Assemblr EDU app, Jujun also feels helped by fast responses from his fellow ACE members.

But on a personal level, he was heavily inspired by Jarnawi, one of the ACE members who was very vocal in spreading the news about Assemblr EDU.

Seeing what Jarnawi and the other ACE members do in the community ultimately urged and motivated him to start sharing his knowledge through webinars and workshops.

"I'm motivated to hold webinars since I want to apply my knowledge by implementing it to Assemblr EDU. So far, I've had around 3,000 participants, coming from teachers and students, joining my offline and online webinars or workshops," Jujun continues.

Putting aside his activities as an ACE member, Jujun is also highly active as an Assemblr EDU Distributor. His remarkable achievement as our distributor also makes him one of the top tiers.

Multitasking two different responsibilities might sound easy for you, but it's not as easy as it sounds in reality. The key to nailing them both is by implementing the distributor activities into the workshop.

Oftentimes, he also invited his fellow distributors to carry out training together and collaborate.

"Let's say I have an upcoming webinar or workshop. Since my job as a distributor is to sell subscription plans, I require my participants to purchase the plans before participating in the activities," Jujun shares his strategy. That way, both of his activities can run well simultaneously.

Regarding his future plans, Jujun will keep doing what he loves; holding webinars or workshops to share his knowledge and know-how to create 3D and AR lessons in the form of AR books or flashcards.

To keep yourself motivated, Jujun shares that being active in other EdTech communities matters, so you can blend them into your activities in the ACE community. "Being involved in events held by your regional institutions can also be the answer," adds Jujun.

"If you want to hold your own webinars, of course, you have to learn about public speaking, and then plan out and master your topics or materials. The rest of it depends on how you promote your webinars. Preparing an alternative plan will also never go wrong—just in case it doesn't go the way you want it to. And the last is evaluation. That's important!"
