Experiments for non-formal education of pupils of grammar schools
Kubelková, Natálie ; Šmejkal, Petr (advisor) ; Míka, Luděk (referee)
Extracurricular, more precisely informal, teaching is an important part of the overall educational process and complements formal teaching in school. Teaching is carried out in the free time of students and is an important factor in motivating students to further study. It offers a wide range of disciplines in which students can learn and further develop. The theoretical part of this work deals with extracurricular teaching in the Czech Republic. It is devoted to the functions of extracurricular education, places for its implementation, focuses on leisure teachers and part is also devoted to legislation. The work also deals with implementation of chemical experiments in non-formal education, an essential part of which is the safe handling of chemicals and legislation. In this regard, the work also focuses on the preparation of a morning experimental program for younger school age children for a day camp organized by the Faculty of Science, Charles University, as one of the possible variants of informal aktivity for children at primary school. The program is accompanied by materials that were created primarily for leisure teachers who can use them in their leisure time, but are also usable for teaching at school. The chosen experiments were designed so that the danger of the used chemicals was as...
Activating Methods in Chemistry Supported by Mobile Applications
Andrlíková, Věra ; Teplá, Milada (advisor) ; Šmejkal, Petr (referee)
This thesis deals with activation methods in teaching Chemistry with support of mobile applications. The theoretical part deals with the topic of digital literacy. By analyzing the document Recommendations of the Council of the European Union focusing on key competences for life- long learning, it was concluded that a digital competence is one of their components. Therefore it is highly desirable for schools to include digital technologies in their curricula to develop pupils' skills in using them. In addition, the theoretical part introduces the concepts related to mobile learning and activation teaching methods. Consequnetly, specific mobile applications and activation teaching methods are introduced and used in the practical part. The practical part is devoted to the didactic design of nine activities for teaching Chemistry. The activation of students with the support of monile applications is emphasised in this part of the thesis. All activities have been developed using the CMIARE didactic cycle (goal, method, instruction, action, reflection, evaluation) which brings many elements of formative assessment. All activities were evaluated by a group of selected Chemistry teachers. The evaluations showed that all activities were applicable to teaching Chemistry at the grade level for which they...
Chemistry education in lower secondary schools in the Czech Republic
Wilhelm, Lukáš ; Šmejkal, Petr (advisor) ; Stratilová Urválková, Eva (referee)
The Czech school system allows studying on three different types of grammar schools, differing in the length of study. Teaching at eight-year and six-year grammar schools partly runs in parallel with teaching at primary schools, which can result in large differences in time allocations, caused by the use of available hours devoted to individual subjects at these grammar schools and corresponding primary school years. Chemistry is included in teaching at some grammar schools since the third year, at the same age as at primary schools, but other eight- year grammar schools have included it since the beginning, which creates a significant discrepancy between the length of teaching. How many eight-year grammar schools are affected by this situation? And is there a big difference in the scope of teaching chemistry at eight-year and four-year grammar schools? This work focuses on these questions regarding the teaching of chemistry at eight-year grammar schools. The work aims primarily to determine the scope of teaching and compare its content with the defined curriculum in the framework educational program. One of the most important results of this work is finding that chemistry is taught earlier than in primary schools at a total of 68% of eight-year grammar schools. Furthermore, it was found that a...
Attitudes of future teachers to chemistry
Pospíšilová, Barbora ; Teplý, Pavel (advisor) ; Šmejkal, Petr (referee)
1 ABSTRACT The diploma thesis deals with the attitudes of university students, who will become chemistry teachers, to chemistry and their views on various areas related to chemistry. This work follows the author's bachelor thesis, in which the public's opinion to chemistry was ascertained using a questionnaire survey. In the diploma thesis we focused on finding out attitudes of a group of future chemistry teachers through interviews. The theoretical part deals with the role of chemistry in today's world, chemophobia and the topic of attitudes. The practical part is based on interviews with respondents. This part contains basic information about the research - selection and number of respondents, questions used in the interview, the procedure for data collection and data analysis. One of the key findings was that respondents often lack the perspective and vision of chemistry in context. These are important qualities and skills that a chemistry teacher should have. Furthermore, the importance of teachers in the process of forming a relationship/attitude to chemistry was confirmed - teachers with a broader perspective lead students to a positive relationship to chemistry and they are able to enthrall pupils by chemistry. Key words: chemistry, opinion, attitude, chemophobia, interview, chemistry teachers
Alternative devices for data collection and possibilities of employment in chemistry education
Staníček, Jan ; Šmejkal, Petr (advisor) ; Stratilová Urválková, Eva (referee)
Probeware already has a long history and it is now more recognised as an effective utility in chemistry education. One of the main obstacles for probeware to expand is the lack of the financial means which is one of the main reasons why they are still plenty of teachers that do not use probeware in chemistry education. To solve this issue it is important then to find a cheaper replacement for original probeware so every teacher can use it. The rise of e-shops and cheap international shipping led to the appearance of cheap alternatives to relatively expensive probeware and to professional devices for instrumental methods. It is then vital to find these alternatives and to test their potencial of becoming a fine replacement of the original probeware and that is also the main topic of this bachelor thesis. The results have shown that these cheaper devices already exist and by buying them a lot of financial means can be saved. This alternative probeware provides quality reproducible outputs based on real expectation which are not that much different from the outputs of the original probeware. They are also some disadvantages like long delivery time of goods from foreign e-shops and its complaint. As well as, advanced functions for data analysis are not available in the case of devices with autonomous...
The use of mobile applications in the teaching of chemistry
Hrubá, Běla Marie ; Teplá, Milada (advisor) ; Šmejkal, Petr (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on teaching of Chemistry using mobile phones at primary and secondary schools. The theoretical part is dedicated to the research articles and final theses focused on the topic. Moreover, this thesis shows whether and how school curricula and school regulations dedicate to the topic of mobile phones in education. The practical part of the thesis introduces a research of available chemical educational applications and also an analysis of chosen applications based on predetermined criteria. All of the researched applications are divided according to their topics and arranged in a table summarizing their main content. Furthermore, this thesis describes a trial lesson with implementation of mobile phones and its evaluation. This part also includes all materials used in the pedagogical experiment.
Bohemian Aristocracy and the "Ständestaat" in Austria, 1934-38
Šmejkal, Petr ; Horčička, Václav (advisor) ; Županič, Jan (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to clarify the relationship of Czech nobility towards Austria, but also towards Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. That is because it's not possible to clarify the nobility's relationship with Austria without specifying its approach towards the Czechoslovak Republic. Since there was a plenty of noble families, more or less known, living on the territory of Czechoslovakia during the age of the First Republic, it was necessary to choose only some of them. This thesis focuses on the houses of Buquoy, Czernin of Chudenice and both ancestral lines of Schwarzenbergs (Hluboká-Krumlov branch and Zvíkov-Orlík branch). The objective of this thesis is to establish what kind of relationship did the noble families take towards the newly formed republics, and also to which extent did they deal with the dissolution of the Habsburg monarchy, both based on an analysis of sources mainly of personal nature (correspondence and diaries). Their relationship ended up showing mainly in the late 1930's, when the families had to decide, whether they were going to stay loyal to the Czechoslovak Republic or whether they were going to side with the nazi Germany.
Database of experiments with probeware fo secondary school
Jenčuš, Henrich ; Šmejkal, Petr (advisor) ; Stratilová Urválková, Eva (referee)
A new database of chemical experiments was proposed in this work. This database would be oriented on experiments done with probeware either as a demonstration in a class or as a microcomputer based laboratory. To gather information about the aspects of the experiments that are significant for the teachers choice of inclusion of the experiment into their class, a survey amongst the teacher has been done in two steps - a series of interviews and a questionnaire. A review of current experiment databases in czech language and the materials contained within was also conducted. As a part of this work, twelve sample experiments have been created to be added to the new database.
