The paper describes the results of a comparative research study of elementary school teachers’ attitudes to ICT between 2004 and 2015. Teachers indicated their attitude to ICT by selecting from a six-degree scale ranging from agreement to disagreement. Teachers’ replies in the monitored years were statistically processed including a cluster analysis. The results indicate an anticipated positive shift towards more intensive ICT use, improved virtual communication and use of the internet. According to their consent indicated for various statements, teachers can be divided into two different groups – clusters.

This article deals with the concept of interactivity which, in course of time, became overused, not only in terms of information systems. Thus, the thesis also discusses the unclear interpretation of interactivity and aims to express more apt definition. The interactivity is analyzed across various fields, which further provides a basis for the establishment of unbiased model called classification frame defining a degree of interactivity of specified complex systems.

The report is addicted to the different means of learner’s education with the support of IKT that develops their ability to read consciously, their spatial sensitivity, their ability of manipulation with objects in space and their ability to make their own graphical views of the sensed objects. The paper presents the research team results that have been achieved in the process of meeting goals of the KEGA project No. 035UKF-4/2012. The project concentrates on the development of the spatial imagination development of the lower secondary level learners. The main objective of the project was to design the methodology of technical education focused...

DYNAMIC GEOMETRY ENVIRONMENTS AS COGNITIVE TOOL IN MATHEMATIC EDUCATION

Vladimír POLÁŠEK, Lubomír SEDLÁČEK

JTIE 2015, 7(2):45-54 | 10.5507/jtie.2015.017

In this paper we deal with a possibility of the application of dynamic and interactive geometry software in the mathematics teaching at our schools. We offer their brief characteristics and describe their integration among cognitive computing technologies. The greater attention is paid to GeoGebra Software in order to show its specific use as a cognitive tool. We describe the importance and the role of dynamic geometry programs in the discovery of new knowledge by the experimentation and manipulation of the interactive construction. Each phase of this process we generally define and then illustrate with a specific example.

Dynamically changing relationships and ties in today's globally connected world, creating difficult conditions for positions with graduates. Graduates management, future managers must first be able to adapt if they are to succeed in today's hyper-competitive environment. Experts agree that now is the need for capable executive education. Formal education students is becoming a vital necessity of technological advances and significant personal development and activity of the organization. The scientific article based on the survey provides a snapshot of how much formal education prepares graduates especially business schools for managerial practice...

PROCESS FOR INTELLIGIBILITY EVALUATION OF TRANSMISSION OF THE SLOVAK SIGN LANGUAGE IN E-LEARNING HEARING IMPAIRED PEOPLE

Jana FILANOVA

JTIE 2015, 7(2):65-74 | 10.5507/jtie.2015.018

The article deals with the use of videoconferencing in support of e-learning hearing impaired people. The combination of audio and image information serves for understanding the content of lectures or presentations in the form of videoconferencing. This does not apply for the hearing impaired people, who are only dependent on quality transmission of moving images, especially in a defined area of sign language. The contribution describes the proposal of evaluation process sentential intelligibility, which we can determine at what degradation of moving picture is a video sequence of sentences understood for deaf people yet.
