Online Submission
Learning preparedness of students is becoming one of the most important issues in modern education, and it could be established through development of new culture of methodology and teaching at all educational levels. In this study, we started with the premise that quality teaching of the subject of natural and social studies in first four grades of elementary school, regarding some of the more demanding themes, is being conducted if both the teacher and his students are equally prepared for interaction through use of personal computers, directed by teacher's methodical ideas and prompted by students themselves during teaching and studying. Computers in education, as modern informatics medium, demand from a teacher to master necessary knowledge and skills, putting him in a role of a mediator of knowledge. At the same time, that leads to a redefinition of the established educational goals and strategies, which remove the student from a passive position and put him into a center of the educational process. The authors have methodically organized the educational theme "Introduction of students to understanding and orientation in time", presented by a spiral curriculum through application of personal computer and computer programs.
