DECISIVE FACTORS IN CHOICE OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION AND PUPILS' PERCEPTION OF TECHNICAL STUDY FIELDS

Petr HLAĎO, Jiří BALCAR

JTIE 2011, 3(1):5-10 | 10.5507/jtie.2011.001

Statistics have been showing a long-term lack of pupils' interest in technical fields of study and secondary schools. Lower-secondary schools have to respond to this situation. Surveys conducted in the Czech environment show that the lack of interest stems not only from individual preferences of students but also from unfavourable image of technical study fields and insufficient or distorted information. The prime objective of this article is to present up-to-date information about primary career choice of pupils, specifically, how pupils perceive technical study fields, which factors influence the choice of these fields, the extent of their autonomy...

Adriana NAGYOVÁ, Ján ZÁHOREC

JTIE 2011, 3(1):11-16 | 10.5507/jtie.2011.002

Quality of technical education is mainly dependent on the continuity of the content and implementation of a follow-up study of secondary schools to primary schools and institutions of higher education to the secondary ones. Particularly in natural and technical sciences it is necessary to continually improve both initial and follow-up educational levels and gradually transform the school system. In this contribution, the authors deal with the analysis of integration and status of the technical subjects at the secondary education level in the Belgium within the frame of international comparison of the Slovak and Belgian educational systems to assess...

THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZATION THE VIDEO-CONFERENCE SYSTEMS AT BASIC SCHOOLS IN TERM OF TECHNOLOGY INFRASTRUCTURE

Miroslav ŠEBO

JTIE 2011, 3(1):22-25 | 10.5507/jtie.2011.004

Video-conference systems represent a great potential in the implementation in educational process. They provide wide area of possibilities to broadcast lectures for more schools at the same time. One teacher, specialist or a group of them can provide a lecture from any place on the Earth simultaneously for practically unlimited number of schools what can save both time and money. The Other advantage lies in possibility of discussion with the lecturer immediately after the lecture. An useful function of video-conference systems is also sharing of the desktop. This means that one student working on PC in one town is able to see the desktop of a teacher´s...

REMOTE EXPERIMENTS - THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES IN PHYSICS CLASSES

Miroslava OŽVOLDOVÁ, Michaela ŽOVÍNOVÁ

JTIE 2011, 3(1):26-32 | 10.5507/jtie.2011.005

Within the paper we present real remote experiment "Free fall of a body in a glass tube". The experiment is based on the movement of a permanent magnet in a glass tube with induction pick up coils for position measurement. The paper also shows the possibilities of implementation of this experiment to direct educational process as a part of new strategy of education - Integrated e-Learning (INTe-L). For this purpose we created the compact file of INTe-L components - real remote experiment, virtual experiment and e-textbook - combined with additional materials for the complex covering of the class devoted to the theme of free fall with the use of interactive...

TECHNICAL PROBLEMS OF MAKING MODEL BY PARAMETRIC METHODS FOR SUPPORT AUTHORING TOOLS

SELF-AWARENESS AND SELF-PRESENTATION PUPIL IN CONNECTION WITH ITS DECISION MAKING CAREER

Jiří KROPÁČ, Anna ZUBATÁ, Jitka PLISCHKE

JTIE 2011, 3(1):42-48 | 10.5507/jtie.2011.008

General educational programs, which are implemented today in the educational practice of schools, require students´ preparation to find their place in the world of work. The article focuses on selected context of the students´ preparation for career decision, especially on connections between the self-knowledge and self-presentation of students, namely which are based on the findings of student's opinions on the preparation in secondary schools using a questionnaire.

THEORA AND PRACTICE IN THE AREA OF TEACHING AND DEPLOYMENT OF CAD/CAM SYSTEMS

Vladimír SOTÁK, Martin KUNÍK, Robert SOTÁK

JTIE 2011, 3(1):49-54 | 10.5507/jtie.2011.009

In this contribution we focus our attention on the fundamental element of technical literacy - mastering CAM/CAD systems. In the first phase of the research, the authors were ascertaining what systems are being used in practice and what are being taught at schools that produce graduates for technical practice. A questionnaire was used as a research tool. Evaluation of the outcomes have not brought only information on what systems are being used in technical practice and at schools, but thanks to them we know what type of knowledge the employers expect from the future graduates in the area of CAD/CAM systems. We all agree that ideally, a graduate should...
