The purpose of this study is to ascertain whether it is feasible to create a PLAS—an Integrated IT-Based Thematic Learning Model—to increase student literacy. A 4D development model from Thiagarajan was used as the research approach in this study. Ten elementary schools that are representative of the city of Medan's elementary schools are included in the study site. The following aspects of the data used in this study will be seen: (a) aspects of learning and content correctness were obtained from experts in learning materials; (b) learning models developed were obtained from experts in learning design; (c) literacy aspects were obtained from linguists; (d) quality of display and presentation of material obtained from individual trials., small group, and field; (e) Students' actions and reactions throughout the learning model trial are used to determine how appealing the learning model is. The construction of an integrated IT-based theme learning model leveraging the local natural environment was determined to be valid based on the study's findings, as evidenced by the results of material experts (92%), design experts (79%), and media experts (92%). As a result, the outcome of creating an integrated IT-based thematic learning model that makes use of the local natural environment is acknowledged as valid and is ready for student
