The research was conducted with 388 (310 females, 78 males) prospective pre-school teachers in the 2018/2019 academic year. Analysis results revealed that preservice pre-school teachers' epistemological beliefs and NoS views predicted the variation in science teaching attitudes by 47% (F = 169.681, p = .000). It was determined that the "methodological approach" and "scientific attitude" sub-dimensions of epistemological beliefs and the "characteristics of science" sub-dimension of NoS have strong correlations with the science teaching attitudes. The TACO model showed that epistemological beliefs are a lowered altitude that begins from the nature of scientific knowledge and continues across all dimensions of NoS. Findings of this study could be significant to develop educational materials in prospective pre-school teacher education and we believe that TACO, with its holistic assessment structure that includes all the variables in the study, has the potential to be an alternative analysis method for further research on teacher views on the NOS and their epistemological beliefs that impact on their science teaching in pre-schools.</p> Kaan Bati Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/1034 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Strategic leadership and its reflections in educational organizations https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/1047 <p>Leadership has come to the fore with different characteristics throughout civilizations as a phenomenon independent of cultural, geographical and ethnic characteristics that all societies experience in common. The achievements of important figures in history with their leadership characteristics in civilizations such as Ancient Greece, Egypt and China have become epic. The historical leadership records that have continued over these centuries have caused people to think, question and do different research on the characteristics of leaders. Especially in the twenty-first century, it is seen that leadership and leader effectiveness have become an important issue in scientific research. Although it is discussed from many different perspectives and paradigms, such as the leader's different dimensions and situations such as behaviors, characteristics, skills and power sources that reinforce his influence on followers and group goals, it is difficult to say that changing situations and information can be adequately evaluated.</p> Nilay Neyişci, Aynur Erdoğan Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/1047 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The adoption of the interdisciplinary approach in the teaching of life and earth sciences at university: a reality or a wish? Case of the faculty of sciences of Tetouan, Morocco https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/909 <p>The interdisciplinary approach is a convergent pedagogy approach. It allows learners to develop new skills that enable them to group knowledge in different disciplinary fields. This reveals the many advantages of this approach that distinguish it from the traditional teaching approach that conveys compartmentalized knowledge. This approach is widely used to understand complex phenomenon such as those forming the subject of the study of biology and geology.</p> <p>The present, via a survey conducted among students holding a basic license in life and earth sciences, from the faculty of sciences of Tetouan, has set out to know whether, yes or no, the said approach has been integrated into their training and to collect, if necessary, their appreciations as for the interest which they would carry towards its adoption in university education. We use, in this analysis, the Likert scale in five points.</p> <p>The results obtained show that the interdisciplinary approach is not adopted in the faculty of sciences of Tetouan. However, the students of this faculty expressed the need to include this approach in their training course, given its importance in the overall learning of life and earth sciences.</p> El mostafa Amiri, Rajae ZERHANE, Anouar AIDOUN, Rachid JANATI-IDRISSI, Mourad MADRANE Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/909 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Exploring the impact of social media in academic performance of high-school students in India https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/911 <p>The Social Media or the Social Networking sites are rapidly increasing among the Students especially in higher education. The lockdown imposed due to COVID-19 has made the Social media penetrate into the lives of every student. The social media has become the platform of official communication and made the students completely rely on mobile phone for all academic activities. Thus, the ultimate responsibility of using or misusing the Social Media is at the hands of the students. So, the study is attempts to examine the impact of Social Media in the academic performances of the students in higher education. This is an quantitative study based on a survey among high school students of private schools in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The study used inferential statistics alongside the Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) for testing the hypothesis and its significant relation with the variables. <br>The study revealed that the usage of Social media has a dual impact, negatively (addiction) and positively impacts the communication among peers, teachers and knowledge sharing behavior which leads to good academic performance. The chalk and talk method has almost vanished and made both teachers and students to adapt to alternative learning methods. The study suggests adopting existing pedagogy or creation of a new style of learning integrating the Information Communication Technology (ICT) with traditional teaching methods.</p> D Vezhaventhan, A Jagannathan Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/911 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Development and implementation of the learning autonomy scale in teaching Turkish as a foreign language https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/1037 <p>The purpose of this research is to develop learner autonomy scale in teaching Turkish as a foreign language and to analyze learner autonomy in terms of some variables. In short, the characteristics that an autonomous individual should have in learning a foreign language are knowing the learning strategies, taking an active role in the learning process, making accurate predictions, contributing to the learning materials, and having tolerance towards the target language. In this study, these dimensions were taken as the basis for scale development and examined in detail. We want to analyze the relationship between learner autonomy and gender, place of residence, desire to learn a language other than Turkish, purpose of learning Turkish, employment status, education level and academic field variables. Survey design methodology is used for this study. The universe of the study consisted of people who learned Turkish as a foreign language in Turkish Education Application and Research Centers (TÖMER) in Turkey and abroad. E-mail list sampling, one of the online sampling methods, was used and 370 people from 55 countries voluntarily participated in the study. Within the scope of the study, the "Learner Autonomy Scale for Learners of Turkish as a Foreign Language", consisting of 6 factors and 25 items with necessary psychometric properties such as validity and reliability, was developed. According to the findings obtained with the application of the scale, it was seen that female participants had higher self-efficacy in the attitude factor towards foreign language learning than male participants. It was determined that among the participants, those who use foreign language learning strategies are more willing to learn a foreign language other than Turkish, compared to those who do not. Considering the participants' Turkish learning objectives, It has been observed that those who learn Turkish for educational purposes are more competent in using a foreign language learning strategy and in directing themselves in learning, than those who learn it for a purpose other than education. Considering the participants' desire to learn a foreign language other than Turkish, it has been determined that those who have high scores on using a foreign language learning strategy, their attitudes towards learning a foreign language, their ability to direct themselves in learning, their expectations from the teacher and their total scores have a desire to learn a different foreign language other than Turkish. In addition, it was seen that the participants who wanted to learn another foreign language other than Turkish had lower foreign language learning anxiety.</p> Nurcay Özkaya, Berker Kurt Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/1037 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Developing prospective mathematics teachers' problem posing competency using general educational design model (ADDIE) https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/837 <p>The purpose of the present study is to investigate the development of prospective mathematics teachers' problem posing competency using the general educational design model (ADDIE). Fifteen prospective teachers of Farhangian University of&nbsp; Karaj participate in the training course in 9 workshops for two months in winter of 2020. This course is designed based on ADDIE model with the aim of teaching mathematics problem posing based on the Stoyanova framework and the Vistro-Yu model. Data is collected from pre-test and post-tests and Student tasks during the course. Findings shows that during this period, the percentage of the number of correctly problems are developed in structured situations from 80% to 84%, in semi-structured situations from 38% to 93%, in delicious problem posing, from 13% to 40%, in the nutritious problem posing, from 4% to 40% and in delicious and nutritious problem posing from 0 to 11%. In Vistro-Yu problem posing method, in all components of problem posing, the percentage of the number of correctly posed problems was from 87% upwards. The results of t-test of two dependent samples shows that in addition to problem posing in structured situations, the average score of problem posing in semi-structured situations, delicious problems, nutritious problems and delicious and nutritious problems in the post-test is better than the pre-test. These results and our observations of students' performance during the course and interviews, showed that the problem posing education to prospective mathematics teachers scheme based on ADDIE, has led to a favorable development in their mathematics problem posing.</p> Saeed Seyedinasab, Nasim Asghary, Zahra Ghasempor Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/837 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Investigation of the effect of school administrators' thoughts for change on 21st century skills https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/963 <p>The aim of this study is to examine the effect of school administrators' tendencies towards change, working in primary schools, on 21st century skills. The research is an example of the relational screening model. In this context, the sample of the research consists of 148 school administrators working in primary schools in 5 districts of the TRNC, namely Nicosia, Girne, Famagusta, Güzelyurt and Lefke. The research was evaluated with 107 people from 148 managers, with 95% confidence level and 5% sampling error. In this study, the "Multidimensional 21st Century Skills Scale" was used with the permission of the authors to measure the 21st century skills of school administrators and their tendencies towards change. In addition, the scale named “Adaptation of the change tendencies scale for teachers” was used. As a result of the research, it was revealed that there were significant correlations between the scores obtained from the sub-dimension of resistance to change in the Managers' Tendency to Change Scale and the scores acquired from the Multidimensional 21st Century Skills Scale and the Information and Technology Literacy Skills sub-dimension in the scale. These correlations are positive, and as the scores obtained from the sub-dimension of resistance to change in the Managers' Tendency to Change Scale increase, the scores obtained from the Multidimensional 21st Century Skills Scale and from the Information and Technology Literacy Skills sub-dimension in the scale also increase.</p> Esen Sucuoğlu, Altan Sarıkaya, Nesrin Menemenci Bahcelerli Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/963 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 An investigation of the academic consulting competence of high school teachers in Vietnam https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/920 <p>High school students must grapple with a host of issues and encounter difficulties when studying at schools, such as peer pressure, test anxiety, cyberbullying, unhealthy relationships, psychological distress, depression and possibly domestic issues. These obstacles create the need for academic consulting in order for high school students to develop essential skills and then solve problems. This study aims to examine the high school teachers' perceptions and the quality of academic consulting competence in the Vietnamese educational context. This study surveyed 1089 high school students and 289 teachers in Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam with the 43-item questionnaire. The main results showed that academic consulting competence had been noticed and trained professionally for high school teachers. Additionally, both students and high school teachers recognized the essential role of high school teachers' academic consulting competence in educational settings.</p> Thi Quynh Nga Le, Huu Chau Nguyen, Thi Phuong Hanh Vuong, Thi Mai Mai, Le Thach Nguyen Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/920 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Rethinking reflection in teaching and teacher education: An alternative terminology https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/958 <p>Reflection in education is usually associated with teachers reviewing their own practices in order to identify problems and find possible solutions to be applied in practice. In this article, I argue that the term “reflection,” which is used to represent a deep cognitive and metacognitive process about teaching and learning experiences, is misleading and insufficient. Thus, relying on mainly the concepts used by Gestalt psychologists, I propose a new term to be used instead of reflection: insighting. I argue that this new term, not only represents the inward look and deep philosophical questioning needed for successful reflection, but it also represents a positive conceptualisation of the act of deep thinking, removing it from being conceptualised as an aspect of “problem solving.”</p> Çise Çavuşoğlu Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/958 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Integrating Tri Hita Karana in character education https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/923 <p>As a reference for education in Indonesia, the 2013 curriculum emphasizes 18 characters that must be incorporated into the entire teaching and learning process. The Tri Hita Karana idea is intimately tied to and associated with these character values in Bali. According to this phenomenon mentioned, this study aimed at investigating the Elementary school teacher and parents’ perception.&nbsp; By using a questionnaire-based survey approach, this study involved 24 primary school teachers and 22 parents as the participants. The data revealed the similar perceptions between primary school instructors and parents in Buleleng, Bali. Therefore, teachers and parents realized the essential of integrating Tri Hita Karana into the process of character education.</p> Ketut Putra Sedana, I Made Yudana, Ni Ketut Suarni, Putu Kerti Nitiasih Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/923 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Student teachers’ critical thinking and learning autonomy: the mediating role of self-regulation. https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/960 <p class="Keywords" style="text-align: justify; line-height: normal; margin: 0cm -.3pt .0001pt 0cm;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="font-size: 12.0pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif';">This age we live in is called the information age, and it has a point of view that it is argued that the learner should have the control of constructing the knowledge and the learning process also think critically. This study aims to look into the connections between critical thinking, self-regulation, and learning autonomy in student teachers and the mediating role of self-regulation in the effect of critical thinking on learning autonomy. From this point forth, a relational comparison design was used in the research. 368 student teachers studying in the primary and preschool teaching programs of 20 state universities located in different regions of Turkey constituted the research sample. The acquired data were analyzed using correlation and path analysis model. Consequently, it has been set forth that there is a positive and significant relationship between the critical thinking skills, learning autonomy, and self-regulation skills of the student teachers studying in the last year of the preschool and primary teaching program. It has been detected that self-regulation has a mediating effect in predicting learning autonomy of critical thinking. In accordance with the results, content that will support the development of critical thinking, learning autonomy, and self- regulation skills can be included in the undergraduate program to be applied in the training of teachers who will teach at the basic education level. As the development of these skills will enrich the learning processes, it possibly will also increase the quality of the education given at the basic education level.</span></p> HilalL İlknur Tunçeli, Alper Yorulmaz, Büşra Şahan Aktan Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/960 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Identifying the interconnection between self-esteem and the development rate of agility and speed of girls at the age of 13 in the process of physical education https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/834 <p class="western" style="text-indent: 1.2cm; margin-bottom: 0cm; line-height: 150%; orphans: 2; widows: 2; background: transparent;" align="justify"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: medium;">Тhe purpose of the study is t</span></span><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span lang="en-GB">o identify the interconnection between self-esteem of girls at the age of 13 and the development rate of physical qualities (agility and speed).

In this study, quasi-experimental research design with pretest-posttest and follow-up test control group was adopted. The study group of the research consisted of children aged between 60-72 months (5-6 years old) in the kindergarten of a private school affiliated to the Ministry of National Education in Alanya district of Antalya province. Two groups were formed; an experimental group and a control group. “Early Childhood Life Skills Scale” was administered to the children both in the experimental group and in the control group before the implementation. After the pre-test, the "Creative Drama Based Life Skills Curriculum" designed by the researcher was used in the experimental group for 12 weeks, 2 sessions a week and a total of 24 sessions. The children in the control group, on the other hand, continued their regular curriculum with their teachers. Following the end of the implementation, the same scale reapplied to the children in the experimental and control groups. The scale was reapplied to the children in the experimental group in order to monitor the permanence of the curriculum, 3 weeks after the end of the implementation. The data were analyzed via the SPSS program after obtaining all the data. The normality of the data was determined by the kurtosis-skewness analysis. After reaching the information that the data were normally distributed, the analyzes were completed by using the t-Test for dependent groups and t-Test for independent groups from parametric tests. According to the findings obtained from the study, no statistically significant difference was found between the life skills levels of the experimental and control groups in the "Early Childhood Life Skills Scale" pre-test results. When the post-Test results applied to both groups at the end of a 12-week study period with the children in the experimental group were examined, a statistically significant difference was found in favor of the experimental group.

Studying in educational institutions alone is not, however, enough in order to be successful. This is the reason why self-education has become widespread. The aim of this work was to study the implementation of the self-education principles in specialized education, focusing on the principles of regularity, consistency, the relationship between self-education with education and self-education with professional activities. This aim was achieved through a pedagogical experiment conducted in general secondary and higher educational institutions, as well as through surveys of pupils, students, nursery school teachers, school teachers and lecturers/professors. Statistical data on the dynamics of the teaching staff of educational institutions were analysed through mathematical methods. The experiment found that the introduction of methods that contribute to the development of self-educational competence, self-control and self-organization in educational institutions also has a positive effect on the academic performance of pupils and students. These methods improve cognitive activity and increase motivation of educational activities, social interaction and purposefulness, point out gaps in acquired knowledge and help to implement a differential approach. The study demonstrated that self-education should be consistent and regular, starting with general secondary education and accompanying specialists throughout their professional carriers. finding effective teaching methods that can be used in educational institutions at different levels and that contribute to the development of skills and abilities to independently improve acquired knowledge may be the subject of further research.</p> Dmytro Shutov, Anastasiia Anosova, Oksana Krychkivska, Anna Vorona, Lyudmyla Solodka Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/868 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Experimental methods of leadership competence development of future physical education teachers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/1001 <p>At the present stage, the problem of developing leadership competence of future physical education teachers is relevant, as it is caused by fast-changing transformations which occur in socio-political, economic, cultural, social and educational spheres of Ukraine, in particular, in the field of physical culture and sports.

There were described resource opportunities of internet technologies in teaching a foreign language to students of non-linguistic departments, including a wide range of teaching materials. Moreover, these opportunities have a motivational potential if students are given competent guidance in methodic, didactic, and technical aspects in online learning. The research aims to elicit major difficulties learning a foreign language online. A survey was conducted with compiled questions, taking into account the standards of the Common European Framework of Reference was conducted. Several difficulties in teaching foreign languages to non-linguistic students in distant learning during the pandemic were revealed. The research results indicate that the most effective tool to overcome these difficulties is introducing the “Moodle” electronic system. The specifics of the foreign language course, where the language is both a target and a means of non-linguistic learning, were determined. Basic kinds of speech activity were characterized. Moreover, ways to organize these activities with the help of internet technologies in learning were identified to facilitate overcoming certain difficulties in completing the academic course in a foreign language by non-linguistic students in distance format. It was proved that the elaboration of methodic, didactic, and technical components of distant education in teaching a foreign language to non-linguistic students during the pandemic can make distant learning an effective form of education. Thus, we underlined the practicability of introducing internet technologies in the educational process in higher educational institutions.</p> Olga V. Miasnikova, Oxana V.

This study aims to investigate the levels of well-being and explore the factors influencing well-being in special education teachers in Vietnam. Special education teachers (N = 81) from three special education schools and a special education Centre in Vietnam were involved in the current study. Descriptive analysis, Pearson correlation, and multiple linear regression were used to examine the levels of well-being and determine whether life satisfaction, job satisfaction, self-compassion, and salary and benefits influencing the well-being levels among teachers. The results show a positive correlation between well-being and job satisfaction, life satisfaction, self-compassion, and salary and benefits. Additionally, multiple regression analysis reveals that life satisfaction, self-compassion, and salary and benefits influence well-being levels positively, meaning that teachers with increased life satisfaction, self-compassion, and salary and benefits have higher levels of well-being. The present findings contribute to the general discussion about the nature of well-being and the influential factors in teachers’ well-being. It is highly suggested that organizations/schools provide appropriate policies and increase the special education teachers' well-being in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.</p> Hung Duy Le, Mai-Lan Nguyen-Thi, Thuy-Minh Tran-Thi, Hai Xuan Cao Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/657 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Linking tourism and academe: Developing the potential of Isabela State University as the first academic ecotourism campus in the Philippines https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/961 <p>The study assessed the status of Isabela State University in meeting the required criteria set by the national agencies in relation to standard requirements, in operating an eco-tourism site in the Philippines. Isabela State University (ISU) Cabagan campus has been in existence for over 40 years and in the last 5 years has employed over a thousand employees both academic and non-academic serving more than 45 thousand enrollees in its five (5) colleges/academic core. The proposed land use aimed to mobilize the students, faculty, administrators, and other staff to establish and develop a nature-friendly and true farm experience on the campus. A total of 455 respondents, consisting of four groups, were asked to rate the degree of importance of the cultural dimensions observed pertinent to the academic ecotourism status of ISU based on two standards. Results revealed a rating of “VERY HIGHLY COMPLIANT” according to the natural system in both standards used as benchmarks. The rest of the areas were rated as “HIGHLY COMPLIANT”. Corollary to this, several issues and concerns were raised by the various groups of respondents in meeting the challenges to being successful academic ecotourism camps, specifically in the areas of natural and cultural area focus; protection and management of the environment, culture, and indigenous knowledge and practices; education and ethics; visitor satisfaction and responsible marketing. However, the top concern raised was the availability of funds to finance the physical developments and other initiatives for the sustainability of the project. Anent to these concerns, a framework for academic ecotourism campus was proposed capitalizing on the vast underutilized resources of the institution, as well as its strong collaborative linkages and competent and capable human resource to augment the existing inventory considering the environmental, economic productivity, and socio-cultural impacts of becoming an educational venue about biodiversity, the ecosystem, and mother earth.</p> Claire Tumaliuan Copyright (c) 2022 Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/961 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The impact of using humour on the improvement of teachers’ emotional intelligence during advanced training courses https://jett.labosfor.com/index.php/jett/article/view/1002 <p>The aim of the research was to determine the impact of the use of humour in the educational process on improving the teacher’s emotional intelligence during advanced training courses.
