: Analysis of curriculum and experience of John Dewey
Pokorná, Anežka ; Strouhal, Martin (advisor) ; Koťa, Jaroslav (referee)
This thesis explores the notion of curriculum and experience in John Dewey. John Dewey states a number of ground-breaking ideas at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries which are in various modifications valid in world of today's education. It is his philosophy of education and Pragmatism that has been at the origin of a number of inspiring educational currents and conceptions of the child throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. The aim of this paper is to map out the fundamental ideas underlying John Dewey's philosophy of education, particularly the key concepts of curriculum and experience. It is these two concepts that play a key role in understanding John Dewey's philosophy. The contribution of this thesis is in the analysis of John Dewey's concept, which is unique precisely because it is constructed from the philosophy of education to the concrete teaching. It includes both a theoretical and a practical component. It is the continuity between the components - from the ideational to the practical - that is essential and we see major gaps in the current education system due to the fact that education is not conceived as an ideational-practical whole. But is it even possible to approach education in this way? The analysis also shows the weaknesses that John Dewey's construction of education entails. In...

Necpalová, Kateřina ; Komárková, Tereza (advisor) ; Koťa, Jaroslav (referee)
This paper discusses learning styles and school performance motivation in secondary school students. In high school, students spend a considerable amount of their academic life and expend a considerable amount of energy to achieve the goal of successful completion of their education. Their motivation towards this goal can be varied, with some driven by family tradition, while others are motivated by fear of failure. Learning and expanding knowledge are a key part of secondary school life. There is a wide range of different learning styles, and not every style is appropriate for every student. The study involved 3,943 respondents (16-19 years old), of which 884 were in the group of students studying in secondary grammar school, 2,503 in the group of students studying in secondary vocational school, and 556 in the group of students studying in secondary vocational training school. Methods: school performance motivation questionnaire and VARK. Analysis of results: descriptive statistics, Chi-square, Kolmogorov-Smirnov normality test, Mann-Whitney U test, and Cramer's V or Rank-biserial correlation to estimate an effect size. The results show that girls in secondary schools are more likely to be positively motivated to perform in school and also show a higher need to avoid failure than boys. We also...
Selected aspects of school economics
Dvořák, Tomáš ; Koťa, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Kropáč, Jiří (referee)
Money makes the world go round. It is no different in the educational system. But how to fulfill the mission to educate and shape the youth, and at the same time ensure the economic self-sufficiency of the educational institution? This is the question I seek answers to in my work. The diploma thesis is focused on the issues of economics and financing of education in the Czech Republic (CR). Particular emphasis is placed here on presenting a detailed description of the education system in the Czech Republic and the financing of individual types of schools. An important part of the work is the elaborated financial analysis of the OECD report, some selected indicators, on the basis of which the current situation will be subsequently evaluated and suitable measures that could lead to its improvement will be recommended. In the beginning of the thesis, space will be given for a detailed description of the current system of Czech education. Based on the current legislation, individual types of pre-school facilities, schools and school facilities will be described, while the emphasis is on a detailed description of features characteristic of their given type. An important part is also the characteristics of the individual public administration bodies that intervene in the field of education through their...

The research part is conceived in the form of a qualitative questionnaire as a thematic analysis of semi-structured interviews of first grade primary school teachers. The question is raised as to what teachers perceive as classroom rituals, what they think are the benefits and, most importantly, to map the changes in these rituals, when they occur and what is the reason for them.
Cultural mission of the school
Málková, Dana ; Strouhal, Martin (advisor) ; Koťa, Jaroslav (referee)
(in English): We live in a time when under the onslaught of the demands of expanding globalization, we are abandoning traditional values that recognize the importance of history and cultural heritage for the human community, values based on respect for authority, values that emphasize ethics, morality and human solidarity. An environment in which the demand for the greatest possible quantity, the highest performance and the best result is more and more intensively and emphatically enforced, quite logically as a result becomes a competitive arena in which there is not much space for what cannot be practically used or at least statistically compared. The globalized postmodern world, oversaturated with information, is abandoning years of recognized traditions and values, due to alternative and often not thoroughly tested processes, human communities are losing their certainties, as well as their original political and cultural boundaries. The aim of the presented text is to try to point out a fundamental change in the understanding of the influence of the institution of the school (and the teacher) on the upbringing, education and cultural development of the individual, thus society, as a result of radical social changes related to the development of science, technology and the growing influence of...
