Application of Experiential Learning in Teaching Physics
Horálková, Zuzana ; Koupilová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Dvořáková, Irena (referee)
The thesis deals with the method of experiential learning and its applications in teaching physics. Experiential learning is regarded as one of the possibilities how to accomplish educational goals. The first part of the thesis constitutes a reflection on the meaning of education, it offers, among others, a reason for discovering more about experiential learning. Furthermore, the theoretical background of experiential learning is described - Kolb's cycle and learning styles derived from it form a significant part; the growth zone is also presented. Attention is also paid to how the teacher and student are viewed in experiential learning. After the theoretical introduction, the thesis is more practical. It explains what a teacher has to know when creating and presenting an activity for students. This is followed by specific suggestions of activities which use the method of experiential learning and which are to be realised mainly outside the classroom (e.g. at an overnight school trip). The activities deal with different topics of physics (e.g. optics, acoustics or astrophysics). Students' own involvement and experience are emphasised. Suggested activities can supplement ordinary school teaching and thus let students know physics from a different perspective. 1
Classroom optics-related activities
Štyksová, Gabriela ; Kácovský, Petr (advisor) ; Dvořáková, Irena (referee)
Title: Classroom optics-related activities Author: Gabriela Štyksová Department: Department of Physics Education Supervisor: RNDr. Petr Kácovský, Ph.D., Department of Physics Education Abstract: The main aim of this bachalor thesis was to create several worksheets with various optics experiments for teaching optics, that would be especially usable at primary schools. These worksheets were created for pupils as well as teachers, and involve group work. The work contains of 12 worksheets on six topics: straightforward propagation of light, image formation in a plane mirror, colors of objects, color folding, refraction of light and light scattering. All worksheets have been checked by experienced teachers and most of them have also been tested in real lessons. Therefore the teachers' versions of worksheets could be supplemented with methodological and technical notes in order to help future users prepare and use them. Part of the thesis is also an overview of selected materials that contain optics experiments and a chapter devoted to two ways mobile phones can be used in optics. Keywords: optics experiments, worksheets, pupils' group work
Basic models of simple electric circuits and their use in physics teaching and learning
Vítková, Miriam ; Dvořáková, Irena (advisor) ; Koudelková, Věra (referee)
The bachelor's thesis focuses on simple models of electric circuits that are used in physics classes. First I selected the overview of the models from accessible sources. Subsequently I categorised them to models that are suitable for classroom demonstration and to models that are more appropriate for discussion or error analysis. For a basic overview of models that are currently used in physics classes I created an online questionnaire and also interviewed several teachers of physics.I discovered that although there are various simple models of electric circuits available, not all of them would be suitable for classroom demonstration without subsequent discussion about possible errors. I also found out that there are teachers who like to use models of electric circuits in their classes whereas others avoid them because of the risk of students' misinterpretation.
Solving of physics problems - development of particular skills
Homolová, Lenka ; Snětinová, Marie (advisor) ; Dvořáková, Irena (referee)
The aim of this work was to prepare activities and identify suitable physics problems that focus on students' abilities to solve physics problems and should help them develop their physical thinking. Four activities are described in this thesis. A teacher's methodical sheet that describes the activity and includes information about the type of developed problem solving skill as well as a worksheet with problems and solution of the worksheet were created for each activity. All worksheets were tested at upper secondary schools. The aim of the research was to find out if teachers and students consider the prepared activities, or more precisely the worksheets, as useful and usable. For the purposes of this research, a case study was chosen as a research method, in which participant observations and structured interviews with students and teachers were the main data for collection sources.
Implementation of selected applets to the teaching of physics
Kotmel, František ; Dvořáková, Irena (advisor) ; Žák, Vojtěch (referee)
My Bachelor's dissertations deals with the utilisation of physical applets in education. In the first part, I study the issue of implementing tablets in schools. In the second part, the work displays the possibilities of utilising the Physics at school application.. The quintessential part of the work is the fifth chapter, where are nine working lists with the utilisation of the Physics at school application as well with author's answers. The sixth chapter entails the evaluation of previous classes using the lists. The working lists are primarily structured for students between 7 and 9 grade of the primary school.
Henry David Thoreau and His View of Slavery
Dvořáková, Irena ; Procházka, Martin (advisor) ; Robbins, David Lee (referee)
This BA thesis is concerned with Henry David Thoreau's opinions on slavery. The first part of the thesis focuses on the development of the abolitionist movement in the first half of the nineteenth century and of antislavery tendencies and organizations. The most important figures of the abolitionist movement, such as Benjamin Lundy, William Lloyd Garrison, Theodore Dwight Weld, David Walker or Frederick Douglass, as well as the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation and the 1865 adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, are paid attention to. Thoreau's essays Civil Disobedience, Slavery in Massachusetts and A Plea for Captain John Brown are analyzed in the thesis. In his Civil Disobedience, the author criticizes the government for abusing, rather than protecting, American citizens, who have elected it and enabled its functioning. Thoreau scorns the government for supporting slavery and for waging the Mexican-American War. He believes that every man has an inalienable right to be free and since the government takes this right away from people, he responds to it with civil disobedience. One comes across Thoreau's critique of his fellow citizens and of their lack of interest in enslaved people in his Slavery in Massachusetts. The writer is disappointed with the fact that law,...

Title: Physics education of students and teachers in the Heureka project Author: RNDr. Irena Dvořáková Department: Department of Physics Education, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague Supervisor: doc. RNDr. Leoš Dvořák, CSc., Department of Physics Education, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague Abstract: This doctoral thesis is aimed at physics education of students and teachers in the Heureka project. The introductory part concerns the brief outline of the current state of physics education both in the Czech Republic and around the world. The next chapters describe the genesis of the project, characterize its main principles and give several examples of methodological sequences in which the application of these principles is shown. The impact of these ideas on students is illustrated by several school tests and the Lawson test, too. The significant part of this thesis deals with the teacher training in the Heureka project. The methods and forms used are described and the impact is analyzed. The international contacts and their development are mentioned in the closing chapter. Several more examples of materials both for students' work and teachers' seminars are published in the appendices. The DVD with digital recording of one lesson is also attached....
