Student self-control as an educational topic: the issue of measurement using self-report questionnaires
Papajoanu, Ondřej ; Bendl, Stanislav (advisor) ; Vališová, Alena (referee) ; Štípek, Jiří (referee)
Self-control is a key non-cognitive skill, which is frequently measured using self-report questionnaires containing items with rating scales. Such data, however, can be hindered by the differences in scale usage among respondents. This may lead to erroneous conclusions when comparing different groups of respondents. The aim of the thesis is to analyze the differences in self-control among students from different Czech upper-secondary schools based on their (unadjusted) self-reports and self-reports adjusted for the differences in scale usage using the anchoring vignette method. The empirical part of the thesis comprises two studies. In the first (pilot) study, we translate a scale to measure self-control, create anchoring vignettes and focus on the verification of the method's basic assumptions using the data from questionnaires and interviews with students. In the second (main) study, we compare the (un-)adjusted self-reports of self-control and the assessment of the vignettes between students from the selected upper- secondary schools of a different type in Prague (N = 312). We found differences in evaluation standards between students from different types of schools. Differences in scale usage among respondents indeed represent a real threat when comparing student self-reports of self-control....

Hanková, Zdeňka ; Bendl, Stanislav (advisor) ; Kollárová, Dana (referee) ; Jirásek, Ivo (referee)
Hanková This thesis focuses on the experiential pedagogy about the implementation of personal and social education. The research aims to investigate and describe the determinants of the experiential pedagogy, particularly about the didactical thinking of group teachers who plan and implement teaching personal and social education in a Czech basic school. The theoretical grounds of this current study are based on the extensive comparison of heterogenous terminology of experiential pedagogy, general didactics, and didactics of personal and social education. This study adopts the qualitative research paradigm with multiple-case- studies research design. The data have been gathered from thematic writing and focus group interviews which were analysed by the content analysis method with the support of axial analysis. The analysis of didactical thinking is concerned with the objective and the experience as a means of learning and reflection and revealed that teachers determine their didactical thinking and practice by the knowledge of the group and individuals concerning psychological safety. The experience during the game is understood as a way of learning facilitated by reflection. The interpretations concur with the constructivist teaching practices based on a socio-cognitive conflict as a learning...
Comparison of the Concept of Contemporary Social Pedagogy in Anglophone and Post-Totalitarian Countries Based on the Example of Russia and Great Britain
Nigmatova, Maria ; Bendl, Stanislav (advisor) ; Syřiště, Ivo (referee)
v anglickém jazyce This work solves the technical problem associated with the concept of social pedagogy at present. Over the last decade, anglophone countries have begun to show interest in social pedagogy as perceived in Europe - i.e., in its broad conception. This is proved by the fact that in the framework of international cooperation of scientists, academics and other researchers in the field of social pedagogy, translations and other books about social pedagogy appear more and more frequently. In these sources we can find the information that in the Anglo-Saxon tradition social pedagogy is associated primarily with children and youth and does not include other age categories. However, the authors argue that social pedagogy in its broader concept has great potential for solving social problems. Therefore, scientists strive to implement social pedagogy in the context of social work, which has a rich tradition in Anglophone countries. The aim of the work is to find, analyze and compare relevant resources related to the concept of social pedagogy in the UK and Russia. For the practical part were selected such sources as: textbooks for universities, study materials and university studying plans. In these university studying plans social pedagogy is presented as a separate specialization. These...

Šimonová, Lucie ; Bendl, Stanislav (advisor) ; Syřiště, Ivo (referee)
This thesis deals with the problematic areas of life of university students suffering from social phobia. The thesis is divided into two parts, a theoretical and a practical one. The theoretical part explains the concept of social phobia and describes its symptoms and possible causes. It also mentions character traits or emotions which social phobia needs to be distinguished from. It also deals with the period of early adulthood and the description of the university environment with the focus on potential factors in both areas, which can bring problems or stress to the individuals with social phobia. Due to the nature of the work, qualitative research was chosen and an in-depth semi-structured interview was selected for the data collection method, in which five respondents participated. Data analysis has shown that social phobia seriously affects a number of areas of life during university studies. Based on the respondents' testimonies, it was found out that the area of relations, especially partner relationships, is the most complicated. Furthermore, social phobia significantly complicates the field of education and the area of work. It is not uncommon for the individuals to have an education or a job position disproportionate to their potential. One of the biggest problems is the communication...
