Online education through the eyes of college students
Dirgasová, Simona ; Hrabec, Ondřej (advisor) ; High, Radka (referee)
This thesis examines the experience of undergraduate students with online learning during the school closures related to the Covid-19 pandemic. In the theoretical section, I present data that relate to the lived experience based on the literature. I then proceed to the empirical section in which I employ qualitative methodology. Specifically, respondents accounts are captured through diaries and interviews. The research group consists of six university students, represented by four women and two men. The age range of the respondents is 22 to 24 years old at the time of writing the diaries. The diaries were recorded by the respondents between February 2021 and July 2021, i.e. during the summer semester of the academic year 2020/2021. In the second stage of data collection, I conducted semi-structured interviews with the same respondents where they reflected on the experience of online learning. I further analysed the data collected in the form of diaries and interview transcripts using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA). The analysis resulted in themes that were relevant to all interviewees. These themes are space, relationships, specifics of online teaching, which contains overwhelming, frustration and stress, attention and motivation and also physical aspects. In the last section,...

The first goal of the research concerns the time perspective, where research questions were used to find out what type of time perspective prevails in children, how far in the future these children think, and which contents their future perspective has. Another goal was to describe the motivation of gifted children, which is why the research questions focused on the type of motivation most represented at school and the motivation to participate in the summer science camp Běstvinka. To examine the time perspective, Zimbardo's Time Perspective Inventory, Motivational Induction Method, and Cottle's Inventory of the Ten Most Important Experiences in Life were used. The Questionnaire of Motivational Sources of Learning Activities helped to determine...
Pupil's motivation to learn during distance learning
Topinková, Jana ; High, Radka (advisor) ; Duschinská, Karolina (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the issue of student motivation during distance learning. This form of education is becoming a common form of teaching due to the cyclical recurrence of the Covid-19 pandemic. In the theoretical part, I focus on defining motivation as a key tool for student's learning, its distribution and selected theories. I focused mainly on the motivational theory the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and Murray's theory of needs. In addition to the general definition of motivation, I deal directly with the motivation of pupils in teaching. In the next chapter I mention the specifics of distance education and focus on its positives and negatives. And not only from the point of view of the cantors, but above all also of the pupils themselves. In addition to forms of distance learning, I also introduce readers to the most well- known platforms that enable distance learning. The practical part is devoted to a survey that I conducted last school year among my 7th graders. I analyze the obtained data on the basis of a group discussion with pupils, which took place in May last year. As a basis for this discussion, I used the stylistic work of students in which, from their point of view, they had to evaluate the pros and cons of distance education. I compare the obtained data with already...
