Non-mathematical world of mathematics textbook for 6th grade of lower secondary schools and in the area of financial literacy
Moraová, Hana ; Bendl, Stanislav (advisor) ; Hošpesová, Alena (referee) ; Voňková, Hana (referee)
The aim of the dissertation thesis is to study the non-mathematical content of textbooks of mathematics. Textbooks of mathematics are not only a pedagogical document but also a cultural artefact that is produces in a particular society with its own cultural norms. While working with a textbook of mathematics, pupils come across many images of everyday life. Yet, since the main goal of a mathematics textbook is to help pupils gain knowledge and skills in mathematics, not much attention is paid to textual (non-mathematical, cultural) content. This means that pupils almost on everyday basis visit a world that tries to awaken the illusion of being "real", of being model of reality but in fact is a model for what is perceived as normal. The question asked in the presented research is what images of everyday life pupils come across while working with Czech textbooks of mathematics and whether there are differences among textbooks by different authors in this respect. Within the frame of this research, five sets of textbooks for 6th grade of lower secondary schools and four textbooks for 9th grade (only the chapter on financial mathematics, an area closely connected to everyday life) were analysed with respect to their non-mathematical, cultural content. The method used in the research comes out of the...

Subsequently, the relation between the extent of education and workplace evaluation is assessed. The results indicate connection between the extent...

Červinková, Kateřina ; Voňková, Hana (advisor) ; Zvírotský, Michal (referee)
The diploma thesis is aimed at further education as one of the possible means of combating the burnout syndrome of pedagogues. It is divided into two main parts, theoretical and practical. These sections are then subdivided into chapters and subchapters. In the theoretical part of the thesis I focus on teachers as an overall concept, more specifically on the personality traits of teachers, their key competences, the position of teachers in the Czech Republic, the development of their professional career, their education and the possibilities for further education. We also define what supervisors are, what types and forms we know, we will also look at supervision processes and their competencies. We will also discuss what the social environment is in school. In the second part of the theoretical part, we also look at the burnout syndrome, its theoretical definition, the symptoms associated with it, its manifestations and its consequences, we will also mention the risk factors for its formation and give us some possibilities of preventing the burnout syndrome. The practical part includes research that I did at selected schools in Chrudim. The main aim of this diploma thesis is to compare the incidence of burnout assumptions in schools with different approaches to education.

Attitudes of pupils to school cheating.
Vodrážková, Jana ; Voňková, Hana (advisor) ; Papajoanu, Ondřej (referee)
The diploma thesis is focused on the research of school cheating in pupils of the second level of elementary schools. Based on a self-reporting questionnaire survey, the aim of the thesis is to find out what motivates the pupils to cheat and what attitude they take to possibly punish detected fraud. Another goal is to find out the frequency of individual types of school cheating, the influence of gender and the learning benefit of school cheating. It has been found that pupils are relatively often used in cheating on the internet at the primary school. Also, there was greater tolerance for cheating when pupils do not attach the importance of punishment for an exposed fraud, rather they would not punish their exposed classmates. Key words: dishonest behavior, unusual cheating, electronic cheating, elementary school pupils, motivation to cheat
Self-assessment of teacher students' knowledge in the field of information and communication technologies
Černá, Petra ; Voňková, Hana (advisor) ; Černochová, Miroslava (referee)
The aim of this thesis was to ascertain the self-assessment of university students with various specializations, in their knowledge of information and communication technology (ICT). The theoretical part concerns with self-assessment as concept and methods pertaining to its verification. It also contains a detailed description of the anchoring vignettes method with its application in specific areas. Also discussed is the Overclaiming Technique. An evaluation has been conducted in the empirical part, which elaborates on self-assessment of ICT terms of various groups of students. Anchoring vignettes method is used in order to amend said self-assessment. Aforementioned part of the thesis also contains the use of overclaiming technique in practise, which is demonstrated on a specifically devised questionnaire. In this questionnaire, the students were asked to evaluate their level of understanding both existing and non-existing terms from the ICT area. The results have shown that there are significant differences between the questioned groups of students. The numbers indicate that students of ICT have a greater tendency to exaggerate the level of their knowledge in the area of information and communication technologies. Much more so than students who specialize in different subject.
