Geometrical similarity transformations in Dynamic Geometry Environment GeoGebra

European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2015, Vol.(12), Is. 2, pp. 116-128.
DOI: 10.13187/ejced.2015.12.116CrossRef

The subject of the article is usage of modern computer technologies through the example of interactive geometry environment Geogebra as an innovative technology of representing and studying of geometrical material which involves such didactical opportunities as vizualisation, simulation and dynamics. There is shown a classification of geometric similarity transformations of the plane, computer tools of interactive geometry environment GeoGebra which are used for realization of similarity transformations. It is illustrated an opportunity of usage of these represented tools while studying of concerns and properties of geometric transformations, theorem proving, solving of construction tasks.

Development of Prototype Outcomes-Based Training Modules for Aesthetic Dentistry

European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2015, Vol.(12), Is. 2, pp. 129-136.
DOI: 10.13187/ejced.2015.12.129CrossRef

The objective of the study is to know the essential components of Aesthetic Dentistry that will be a basis for prototype Outcomes-based training modules. Using a 5-point Likert scale, the researcher-made questionnaire assessed the different elements of Aesthetic Dentistry which are needed in the designing of the training module, the manner of presentation and the form of assessment that were needed in the training module. Statistical tools that were used for the study are percentage, frequency, weighted mean and standard deviation. The information gathered from the respondents was relevant in the development of a Prototype Outcomes-based Training Modules in Aesthetic Dentistry.

Piagetian Conservation Tasks in Ghanaian Children: the Role of Geographical Location, Gender and Age Differences

European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2015, Vol.(12), Is. 2, pp. 137-149.
DOI: 10.13187/ejced.2015.12.137CrossRef

The study investigated the influence of geographical location, gender and age on the performance of Piagetian Conservation tasks. Four conservation tasks; conservation of liquid, length, substance amount and number respectively were administered to children [4-6 years] from rural and urban Ghana and their performance on each task were recorded. Results indicated that there were no significant relationships among the performance of Piagetian conservation tasks and geographical location. Similar trends were noted in the performance of gender and age differences on Piagetian conservation tasks. Nonetheless, older children performed better on the conservation of liquid in a glass than younger children. Based on the results, both quantities and perceptual comparisons can be applied in future studies to examine some possible variations in children’s cognitive development.

The Development of the Foundations of Modern Pedagogy: Paradigmal and Methodological Aspects of Research

European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2015, Vol.(12), Is. 2, pp. 150-157.
DOI: 10.13187/ejced.2015.12.150CrossRef

Changes in the various fields of knowledge influenced the pedagogical science. The article explains the structure of the foundations of modern pedagogy through paradigmal and methodological aspects. Bases of modern pedagogy include complex of paradigms, object and subject of science, general and specific principles, methods and technologies. Paradigmal analysis of bases of modern pedagogy showed that paradigms performed informational, instrumental and technological functions through connections with factors, approaches and principles accordingly. The research of methodological aspect of bases of modern pedagogics allowed to define the structure of the methodological system and main characteristics of the pedagogical system. In the article considers specific principles of optimality, optimization, adaptation and rules of their use in a pedagogical theory and practice.

Media Stereotypes Analysis in the Classroom at the Student Audience

European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2015, Vol.(12), Is. 2, pp. 158-162.
DOI: 10.13187/ejced.2015.12.158CrossRef

Media Stereotypes Analysis is the identification and analysis of stereotypical images of people, ideas, events, stories, themes and etc. in media texts. Media stereotype reflects the well-established attitudes towards a particular object, it is schematic averaged, familiar, stable representation of genres, social processes / events, ideas, people, dominate in the media texts, designed for a mass audience. The plot and genre structure in media texts has specific stereotypes: fable situations of a media text action (scene, historical period, etc.) characters, their values, ideas, language, facial expressions, gestures, clothing, image pickup, etc.

Integrated Prevention of Social Dependencies in Adolescents through the Scenario Method

European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2015, Vol.(12), Is. 2, pp. 163-168.
DOI: 10.13187/ejced.2015.12.163CrossRef

This article provides a rationale for the need to take an integrated approach to prevention of social dependencies in adolescents. Through this approach, the authors fine-tune the determination of the phenomenon of prevention of social dependencies. The authors bring to light the potential of the scenario method in resolving the above objective. The authors describe the theoretical and practical aspects of scenario planning, concretize its objects, and provide a rationale for the method’s effectiveness in studying the processes of origination and operation of social dependencies in adolescents and projecting the process of their prevention. The authors propound a scenario-planning algorithm. The authors identify and describe model scenarios for the origination of social dependencies in adolescents: “Dependency as an outcome of interaction with an asocial group/person”, “Dependency as a response to a provocation”, “Dependency as a means of deriving pleasure”, “Dependency as a way to escape one’s life problems”, “Dependency as an outcome of the change of a constructive way of interacting with the object of dependency to an unconstructive one”, and “Dependency as a way to express the adolescent’s protest”; the authors determine unproductive stratagems for these scenarios. The authors identify the mechanisms underlying the origination of dependency: “the motive-to-goal shift”, emotional-positive conditioning, social contagion, substitution, compensation for negative emotions, and unblocking. The authors classify by the degree of productivity and correlate with behavioral adolescent scenarios model plots and social-pedagogical scenarios for the interaction of pedagogues and parents in resolving objectives in integrated prevention of social dependencies. The authors provide plots and scenarios for the interaction of pedagogues and parents within the “field of cooperation”, “field of building up cooperation potential”, and “field of alienation”. The authors provide recommendations on pedagogues’ and parents’ use of forestalling and correcting scenarios in respect of model scenarios for the origination of dependencies generated by adolescents. If implemented in the practice of preventive work at educational and social institutions, the material presented in this article may help boost the effectiveness of work on forestalling dependent behavior in adolescents in respect of various objects of reality.

Standardization of Primary Education in Great Britain

European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2015, Vol.(12), Is. 2, pp. 169-174.
DOI: 10.13187/ejced.2015.12.169CrossRef

The article examines the standardization of primary education as one of the development trends of the British school at the present moment in the context of improving its efficiency and quality. It analyses the positive results of the standard-based reforms (modernization of primary education content, improvement of younger students’ outcomes, expansion of school autonomy, professional growth of a primary school teacher) as well as negative ones (increased load for students and teachers, inadequate assessment system).
