Male elementary school teacher
Kašparová, Veronika ; Kasíková, Hana (advisor) ; Valenta, Josef (referee)
The subject of the current study is "man as an elementary school teacher". The aim of the thesis is to determine what the role of a male elementary school teacher is and what this role involves. The current study is divided into two parts, the theoretical part and the empirical part. The theoretical part includes the description of the teaching profession (the teaching career path, career identity, and personality of the teacher), the relationship between the teacher and the student, and gender issues in the school environment. The core of the theoretical part is the discussion of the previous research from abroad regarding male teachers. The empirical part is a case study of a male elementary school teacher from one of the elementary schools in Prague. The methods used involve interviews with other teachers, questionnaires from parents and a longitudinal observation of the class. The results of the case study are then further extended by statements of eight male teachers from a range of elementary schools in Prague. The study has revealed that one of the aspects of the male teacher's role is "teacher as a friend". The reason for this might be a more liberal style of teaching. This leads to specific dilemmas in the teacher's behaviour towards the students, their parents, and the society. Key words...

According to UNHCR data from 2018, there are approximately seven and a half million school-age child refugees, with only 61% of them having access to primary education (versus 91% of the total child population). In Greece, child migrants have been around for several years, but they have not had access to education for a long time and some children still do not. The situation was dealt with in various alternative ways, through non-profit organizations, volunteers from around the world and refugees themselves. The thesis is conceived theoretically and empirically. The theoretical part of this thesis deals with these issues. It seeks to explore the educational situation of refugee children in the world, describes the recent migration crisis in Greece, deals with the right to educate refugee children at world and European level, and also in Greece, introduces educational opportunities for refugee children in Greece, both formal, provided by the state, and informal, provided by volunteers and non-profit organizations.

Outdoor Education: the Norwegian Approach
Boháčová, Tereza ; Kasíková, Hana (advisor) ; Valenta, Josef (referee)
Research shows that being in nature is important for children's health and psychosocial and physical development. Outdoor education can significantly improve the quality and meaningfulness of learning, contribute to the teachers' and pupils' well-being and help to build a positive attitude towards nature. However, learning outside the school building is rather an exception in the Czech Republic and has not yet received much attention here. On the contrary, Norway is specific in its attitude to outdoor recreation and outdoor education. The purpose of this paper is to present Norwegian approach to outdoor education in primary schools. The theoretical chapters describe the issue of outdoor education in general with a specific focus on the Czech tradition and discourse, the Norwegian education system and the local situation of outdoor education. This part is followed by a qualitative research carried out in the Bodø district in northern Norway. The main method of data acquisition were interviews with teachers from seven local primary schools. The research describes the teachers' concept of outdoor education and answers the question of where the sources of support for outdoor education in Norway are.

Gal, Alena ; Valenta, Josef (advisor) ; Koťa, Jaroslav (referee)
(in English): The virtual world is becoming more a part of our reality nowadays. Even children are coming into it and they are losing the ability to distinguish between the real and the virtual world. The virtual world is then an absolutely natural thing for them, including the advantages and risks that it brings. The aim of this master thesis was to collect present opinions and views on the conception of specific primary prevention in the area of cyberspace, and to analyze the currently offered programs from certified organizations for schools in Prague. The basic question of research is: What kind of topics do these preventive programs deal with? The method of this research was based on data collection through document analysis, semi- structured interviews and observation. The results show, that the most developed and complex topics in current practice are cyberbullying and netolism, leading to prevention of potential risky use of social networks and safer use of internet. When the goals of preventive programs are expressed enough specifically and sufficiently and with respect to the child, then it mostly focuses on cognitive aspects of the personality. Based on the research at the end of the thesis, there are formulated recommendations for the implementation of other primary prevention topics in...

Nováková, Daniela ; Lorenzová, Jitka (advisor) ; Valenta, Josef (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to describe the programs of support for convicted persons and to find out what the social and pedagogical potential for prisoners is. The study understands the support programs for convicted persons as a legitimate service that helps to support and socialize prisoners and promote their more favorable adaptation to life after release. The thesis has a theoretical-empirical character. The theoretical part focuses on the role of resocialization programs during the execution of sentences and after release, on the role of the prison service and organizations cooperating together with the prison service of the Czech Republic. In the empirical part, an analysis of text material (letters) is carried out on the basis of the principles of grounded theory in order to find out what expectations the prisoners have about this kind of psychosocial support and what benefits they have in relation to the programs. To the main findings belongs the fact that the informants expect to get information about the life behind the walls of the prison and learn the most about current events. The informants further point to the fact that emotional ties with their family and friends often disappear during the imprisonment, and therefore they look for new contacts through the correspondence. Moreover it...
