The teacher is the one who organizes, guides and controls the teaching process and the teaching capacity of teachers determines the quality of education. Teacher training is a key task of schools and the education and training sector. There have been many domestic and foreign studies on teacher training, fostering teaching competence for teachers and management in order to improve the quality of fostering teaching competence for teachers. The paper uses survey method and analyses the results of other research in order to clarify the related issues. The results showed that we need to pay more attention to the assessment of teachers' teaching capacity, espeacially teachers of Northern montainous areas.</p> Linh Le Thuy Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 1 8 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.001 The importance of experiential activities for students: A case of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/615 <p>Experiential learning is a process that begins with practice, experimentation, and then the learner analyzes and reflects on the experience and the results of that experience. This process helps students consolidate knowledge, form and develop new competencies, skills, behaviors, and even new ways of thinking. This approach is considered to have many advantages compared to the traditional educational method. This research is completed based on analysis and assessment from survey activities and understanding the study habits of students, and the teaching methods of elementary, middle and high school teachers in Ho Chi Minh City. Through research, some schools in the city are still teaching and learning by traditional methods, the experiential activities alternating with classroom lessons are still rather new. Most of the students feel quite boring and monotonous when every day when they come to class, they listen to lectures, copy lessons, return lessons without any experiential activities. The inclusion of practical activities in the above lessons is very necessary to change the atmosphere in the classroom as well as help students to absorb knowledge in an intuitive and vivid way. And this research shows the benefits of practical experiences for learning and teaching in schools today. Methods of face-to-face interviews and questionnaires were used and then analyzed using a five-point Likert scale. The research results confirm the role of experiential teaching and clarify the question of how to help improve the quality of teaching in today's smart and modern society.</p> <p>Experiential learning is a process that begins with practice, experimentation, and then the learner analyzes and reflects on the experience and the results of that experience.

The research sample comprise individuals who are active individual sportsmen and team members in Konya for 2019. A total of 23 branches were included in the interviews. different branches such as basketball, field hockey, football, handball, and volleyball from team sports, and athletics, badminton, cycling, wrestling, weightlifting, judo, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, and swimming from individual sports. The research sample comprises randomly selected amateur athletes recruited on a voluntary basis. A total of 773 athletes (578 male, 195 female) were recruited. The average sample age was determined as 16.83±2.59 for males, and 17.41±3.24 for females. The study has a descriptive design. This study is a descriptive attempt to examine the amateur athlete views on the evaluation of coach behavior. The athletes were recruited voluntarily from the active athletes in Konya province in 2019. The data collection utilized in this study was developed by Cote et al. (1999) and adapted to Turkish by Yapar and İnce (2014) under the title “Coach Behavior Assessment Scale for Athletes.” The t-test, analysis of variance, and correlation analysis were performed for the data analysis through the SPSS 20.0 program. It was determined that the amateur athletes evaluated the coach behaviors positively. Individual sports had higher positivity rates than team sports in the physical training and planning, technical skills, mental preparation, target setting, and competition strategy sub-dimensions. Moreover, females evaluated the coach behaviors more positively in the physical training and planning dimensions. It was found that the coach behavior assessments are more positive with higher age, less sports experience, higher planning, preparation, and strategies of the trainers to improve their competition and training skills as even some negative coach behaviors are assessed more positively with higher sportive experience.</p> Selçuk Buğdaycı Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 16 22 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.003 Different and semantic features of terms https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/605 <p>The terms differ from other word groups by their expression and meaning, utilization opportunities, role of the language in different stylistic areas, the level of understanding of the language carriers. Though that there are different ideas about the term and its essence in the linguistics, there are the problems that wait for solution, because, understood every new notion and concept shall be named by certain language units. Different principles are taken as basis in this naming and different conformities to law are substantiated. Especially, there are certain differences in naming of terms. Thus, as naming is after understanding of the object, the semantic relation between the name and the named object and its essence is taken as basis. So, special naming (nomination) is realized in the terminological area in the process of expression of different scientific technical notions and concepts by terms and appointment of the terms according to their essence, because the meaning of terms is limited by the system of certain scientific-technical knowledge and its meaning is determined in the system of scientific-technical knowledge that they concern.</p> Sabina Almammedova Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 23 29 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.004 Semantic adaptation of Arabic loanwords in Turkic languages (based on Oghuz languages) https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/635 <p>One of the main ways to enrich the lexicon of any language is to pick up words from other languages. As in many other world languages, the existence of Arabic loanwords in Turkic languages, including Oghuz languages, is a well-known fact in linguistics. These loanwords have passed through various processes as part of the vocabulary in the languages that contain these for centuries and entered the busiest layers of the language. The type of change depends on the degree of structural and grammatical differences between the language in which the words are spoken and the Arabic language. As Turkic and Arabic are known, they have different structural structures. Words derived from Arabic with an inflected language structure lose many of their features when they are transferred to Turkic languages with an agglutinative language structure. Here you can find many variations on phonetic, lexical, grammatical levels. The article talks about lexical-semantic changes, one of the most important of these changes.</p> Durdane Rehimzade Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 30 37 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.05 Cross-cultural linguistic workshop on the Ukrainian language with resource-based learning of foreign students https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/618 <p>The article presents the results of the experience of creating educational sites for the implementation of resource-based learning, which is interpreted as a holistic dynamic process of organizing and stimulating independent cognitive activity of foreign students to master the skills of active transformation of the information environment, mastering by students of knowledge of the Ukrainian language, cross-cultural knowledge taking into account information needs of the chosen educational program which provides optimal use of information resources by the triad «student-teacher-librarian».</p> <p>The aim of the study is to characterize the main directions of RBL implementation in the study of the Ukrainian language by foreign students at the universities of Poltava, Ukraine. The experiment involved 246 foreign students from the Ukoopspilka University "Poltava University of Economics and Trade". The experiment was carried out in a distance learning environment. Research methods are as follows: theoretical, empirical, methods of mathematical statistics. The main directions of implementation of resource-based learning in the study of the Ukrainian language by foreign students were determined: 1)&nbsp;development of educational sites for teachers and their further implementation in the learning process; 2)&nbsp;didactic contamination and intensification of independent cognitive activity of students during training on the basis of use of information resources; 3)&nbsp;informative saturation of electronic educational resources for activation of independent cognitive activity.</p> Nataliia Kononets Valeriy Zhamardiy Olena Shkola Yuliia Sribna Serhii Novopismennyi Ljubov Khomenko Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 38 46 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.006 Perceptions of high school administrators, teachers, and staff on their educational action research skills https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/610 <p>Educational action research is becoming more essential and widespread in teacher education programs, with the ability to improve and address administrators' and teachers' professional needs and teaching practices. As a result, educational action research skills are regarded as one of the most essential aspects of doing educational action research. The main objective of the present study is to investigate perceptions of high school administrators, teachers, and staff on their educational action research skills. The study used the 12-item questionnaire to survey 252 respondents (14 administrators and 238 teachers and staff) from high schools in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The results show that administrators, teachers, and staff assess their educational action research skills at a good level. Some of the necessary abilities for doing action research were already present by high school administrators, teachers, and other staff members, while others needed to be developed further. It is highly suggested that educational action research training programs, workshops, and educational policies be implemented to reinforce and promote educational action research skills.</p> Hung Thanh Pham Anh-Chuong Huynh-Lam Y Van Nguyen Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 47 53 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.007 Assessing the quality of e-learning teaching by lecturers at universities in Vietnam https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/582 <p>With the growing popularity of the internet and the continued growth,&nbsp; universities are focusing more on web-based strategies to deliver higher education (e.g., e-learning). Despite this, very little research on e-learning service quality has been done to test the effectiveness of these efforts. Therefore, we researched two hundred-ten teachers, including 111 men and 99 women, who participated and used the quality of e-learning teaching questionnaires at several&nbsp; Vietnamese universities. In addition,&nbsp; we use the t-test and MANOVA test to assess each gender and experience group of the lecture. The results found that regarding the quality of e-learning teaching questionnaires scores, men were found to have higher scores than women. However, the teachers who had gone under the study showed a positive attitude to E-learning quality through lectures, and they would be interested in performing E-learning. Evaluating the quality of e-learning teaching is possible and well received by the lecturers. In addition, the assessment of quality learning helps to improve the system of e-learning at Vietnamese universities.</p> Phuong Ngoc Nguyen Van Hung Bui Nang-Nguyen Huu Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 54 59 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.008 The fear of public speaking in Vietnamese pedagogy freshmen https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/631 <p>Fear of public speaking, also known as Glossophobia which is defined as a form of social phobia leading to severely discourage speaking publicly owing to the dread of being ashamed or losing the respect of other people. The recent study used the Personal Report of Public Speaking Anxiety scale including 34 items to survey 374 pedagogy freshmen. The sample consisted of 374 students of which 144 students studying Social Science (38.5%), 140 students studying Natural Science (37.4%), and 90 students studying Educational Science (24.1%) of which were 86 males (23%) and 288 females (77%). The main finding of this study was that a large number of pedagogy freshmen suffered fear of public speaking. Besides, the result found that the difference between the three groups of majors in the levels of glossophobia just very slightly missed the significance level. Educational Science students suffered most public speaking anxiety in three groups of majors. To become professional educators in the future, pedagogy freshmen have to cultivate and self-improve speaking publicly skill which is one of the most essential and crucial soft skills. Additionally, the presentation skill is one of the compulsory academic activities and criteria for evaluation of the university of education. These findings contribute to developing courses aiming to reduce student’s public speaking anxiety and improve their presentation skill. Besides, educators could create an education curriculum that is most suitable for freshmen and not causes much pressure leading to their anxiety.</p> Van-Trung Tran Anh-Chuong Huynh-Lam Bao-Tran Nguyen-Duong Thuy-Trinh Ngo-Thi Vinh-Long Tran-Chi Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 60 66 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.009 The pedagogical instructors' perspective of the PDS Model in teachers' training https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/624 <p>The main objective of the study is to examine the contribution of the PDS model as perceived by pedagogical instructors. In light of this, the research questions derived from the central goal are:</p> <p>&nbsp;What are the characteristics of the PDS instructional model that contribute to increasing the effectiveness of the practical process of student teachers? What are the dimensions of the pedagogic instructor's knowledge of the perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs of the trainees in the effective implementation of the PDS training model? What are the factors that delay the implementation of the PDS training model?</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp; In order to collect the research data, and following the detailed explanation of the pedagogical guides on the purpose of the research, the questionnaire was uploaded to the Google Docs system and sent a link through the email address to the training guides, they were asked to use the link for filling out the questionnaire. It was explained to the pedagogical instructors that the answers will be anonymous and used for research purpose. The participants were also told that there are no correct or incorrect answers when filling out the questionnaire and that everyone will answer to the best of their understanding, opinion and feelings.</p> <p>&nbsp;The findings show that PDS model does not deviate from the other models and it emphasizes the process of professional socialization of the students. In addition, the pedagogical instructors who participated in this study emphasized the subject of teaching as a profession and demonstrated well their work in this field, throughout the interviews, the instructors addressed the content side, the teaching itself, the teaching strategies, the lesson planning. This is to increase interest in learning, and develop thinking among their students, but at the same time, they emphasized other aspects of training such as, communication between teachers and students, working with other trainee. The instructors added that PDS enables students to experience all aspects of teaching. In addition, the model allows trainees together with their pedagogical instructors to acquire various tools and thinking skills that increase the effectiveness of the model.</p> Tareq Murad Nabil Assadi Muhamad Ibdah Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 67 79 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.010 Formation of health saving competence of future fitness trainers through the intensification of their research work https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/591 <p>The article discusses the activation of research work of students on the problems of health preservation as the basis for the formation of professional competence of future fitness trainers.

In this context, there is a call for global education model as an alternative to the traditional nation-specific model of education for developing students’ world-mindedness. However, global education model is also criticized to be uncritical to issues of globalisation(s). This paper aims at critically exploring curriculum practices of global education in Pakistani schools. In this study, qualitative case study design was employed and 18 secondary and higher secondary school teachers were selected as participants employing purposive sampling techniques. The data was collected through document analysis, interviews and teachers’ classroom observations. The data were analyzed using qualitative data analysis method. The findings and results revealed that subject matter knowledge and pedagogies do not consider issues from multiple perspectives, attach less emphasis on knowledge of alternative choices and perspectives. The findings also revealed that subject matter knowledge and pedagogies reproduce colonial cultural knowledge, ignore economic dependencies and multiple forms of human rights violations in international human rights discourses. This study also proposes postcolonial theoretical framework for global education to make curriculum practices of global education more global-centric. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Tajuddin Sharar Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 101 111 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.014 The Vietnamese educators and students’ perception towards high school teacher training activities according to competency-based education https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/642 <p>Competency-based education is a scientific management strategy for separating learning materials into parts and sequencing academic content effectively, determining competency criteria for students, and adjusting and carrying out systematically instruction procedures based on stated standards.

By experiential approach, the process was built and self-protection skill activities were organized for student at preschool, then the effectiveness of the activity on children was evaluated so as to give recommendations to effectively organize self-protection skill education activities for preschool children in mountainous areas. A variety of research methods such as: interdisciplinary approach, process observation method (Leuven scale), interview method, mathematical statistical method (SPSS 20.0 software), case exercises, etc. were used. Research results show that children's feeling of comfort when participating in activities, children's participation in activities and the level of children's self-protection skills are average at the level from 2.1 to 2.3 on a 4-point scale. Kindergarten students in pre-schools in mountainous areas are mainly ethnic minority children, who are shy and are not fluent in Vietnamese. Because of the activities organized according to the experiential approach, the children could interact directly with the objects, so the children become more active, self-aware and proactive in acquiring knowledge and forming self-protection skills.</sup></h1> Le Thi Thanh Hue Nguyen Thi Thanh Huyen Copyright (c) 2021 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers 2021-11-30 2021-11-30 12 4 154 161 10.47750/jett.2021.12.04.021 The pedagogical training management of gifted high school teachers in the region of Hong river delta based on competency approach https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/656 <p>Pedagogical training for teachers is always an important issue of every education system.
