COMPETENCE AS AN OBJECT CATHEGORY AND ACHIEVING EDUCATION RESULTS COMPLEXITY

Jitka PLISCHKE, Jiří KROPÁČ

JTIE 2012, 4(1):6-9 | 10.5507/jtie.2012.001

The article tends to questions of complexity (integrity) of technical subjects instruction. This complexity can be viewed in horizontal direction, i. e. as complexity of contents substitutability, as well as in vertical direction as a connection of theoretical cognition with its practical use for pupil´s creative activities when mastering the learning contents. Formulating object aims in form of competences is considered by the authors to be appropriate for viewing the instruction complexity and its results.
