Kireš, Marián – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
We have developed and verified laboratory work as guided inquiry for upper secondary level students, focusing on conceptual understanding of the physical principle that forms the basis of temperature measurement, and on improvement of selected skills. Conceptual pre-test questions initiate the students' interest and help identify input…

Grubelnik, Vladimir; Marhl, Marko; Repnik, Robert – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
Experimental work in the research of astronomical phenomena is often difficult or even impossible because of long-lasting processes or too distant objects and correspondingly too expensive equipment. In this paper, we present an example of observation of the Moon, which is our nearest astronomic object and therefore does not require professional…

Snetinová, Marie; Kácovský, Petr; Machalická, Jana – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
Experiments in different forms can certainly be suitable tools for increasing student interest in physics. However, educators continuously discuss which forms of experimenting (if any) are the most beneficial for these purposes. At the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Prague, two different forms of physics experiments are…

Repnik, Robert; Ambrožic, Milan – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
The concept of the centre of mass of a rigid body as a virtual point where the weight force acts is not easy to understand without a number of supporting school experiments. In school practice, however, experiments on this topic are often limited to a few of the simplest cases in which a simple flat body, such as a triangle or rectangle, is hung…

Haagen-Schutzenhofer, Claudia; Joham, Birgit – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
It is commonly agreed that experiments play a central role in teaching and learning physics. Recently, Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL) has been introduced into science teaching in many countries, thus giving another boost for experiments. From a didactical point of view, experiments can serve a number of different goals in teaching and learning…

Beaudoin, Kathleen; Mihic, Sanja Skocic; Loncaric. Darko – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
Managing behaviour is a complex component of the teaching process and one that teachers consistently identify as an area of great concern. This study aimed to examine teachers' perceptions regarding their competence for managing the challenging behaviour of young children and to identify the factors that affect these beliefs. A total of 204…

Gracin, Dubravka Glasnovic; Kuzle, Ana – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
The important role that geometry plays in the mathematics curriculum has been extensively documented. However, the reduction of geometry in school mathematics, and the focus on basic computation and procedures, raises the question of the competencies students acquire and the classroom atmosphere in geometry lessons. The goal of this multiple case…

Eger, Ludvík; Egerová, Dana; Pisonová, Mária – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
There seems to be a gap in the literature on educational management that focuses on school image and its assessment. This paper addresses this issue by reviewing the state of the art regarding school image and communication with the public. School image can be defined as the overall impression and mosaic synthesised from numerous impressions of…

Pesti, Csilla; Gyori, Janos Gordon; Kopp, Erika – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2018
Even though initial teacher education is a rather short period in comparison to the other phases of a teacher's career, it has a crucial role in shaping student teachers' career-long activities. Many argue that everyday teaching in a classroom setting is comparable to conducting research, as teachers pursue experimenting with different strategies…
