Mwongela Kavua, Martin ; Šiška, Jan (advisor) ; Pančocha, Karel (referee) ; Tichá, Renáta (referee)
The study focused on establishing how teachers use their digital literacy skills to facilitate learning in Kenya and the Czech Republic. This was achieved by focusing on four objectives: to identify how teachers apply digital literacy skills to facilitate learning; to establish self- efficacy in digital literacy among primary school teachers of learners with disabilities in Kenya and the Czech Republic; to investigate the challenges to the application of digital competencies in class by teachers of learners with disabilities in special primary schools; and to explore how teachers of learners with disabilities overcome the challenges faced in the application of digital competencies. The study was guided by the Self-efficacy element of Albert Bandura's Socio- Cognitive Theory. A descriptive research design was used for the study. The target population for the study was teachers of learners with disabilities in primary schools in Kenya and the Czech Republic. Probabilistic sampling was applied in the study. A semi-structured questionnaire and observation checklist were used to collect data from 456 teachers: 329 from Kenya and 127 from the Czech Republic. A mixed-method approach was used in the analysis, where statistical methods including descriptive, independent sample and chi-square tests were...

Evidence concerning pupils' preconceptions of intellectual disability in the context of the paradigm shift in today's education
Pivarč, Jakub ; Stará, Jana (advisor) ; Straková, Jana (referee) ; Pančocha, Karel (referee)
This dissertation thesis is designed as a theoretical and research survey focusing on the currently marginalised issue of intact pupils' preconceptions of intellectual disability. The survey aims to outline the concept of intellectual disability concisely and to accentuate the current paradigm shift in education with regards to integration and inclusion. Particular attention was paid to the theoretical and epistemological basis of preconceptions as well as to the current state of scientific knowledge of the presented area. Research was conducted in order to analyse and characterise intact pupils' preconceptions of intellectual disability. Furthermore, the empirical study aimed to determine whether pupils' preconceptions differ depending on their gender, year of school attended and the declared experience of persons with intellectual disability. A transversal quantitative survey was conducted at 22 mainstream basic schools in the Czech Republic. The research sample consisted of 2230 intact pupils attending the 5th , 7th and 9th forms of basic schools. Data were collected by means of mind mapping and non-standardised questionnaire of our own construction. The findings demonstrate that pupils perceive the phenomenon of intellectual disability in terms of medical paradigm (emphasising the...
