  • EDUCATION OF THE THIRD MILLENNIUM BETWEEN THE MIRRORS OF WISDOM,
           RESPONSIBILITY, AND DIGNITY

    • Authors: Rodica Mariana Niculescu
      Pages: 18 - 37
      Abstract: The article is the express of a genuine concern about what it is happening nowadays in education worldwide. In spite of a more and more declared interest for this essential area, the reality rather shows a superficial approach of education both on strategic and tactical levels. Curriculum reforms happen everywhere in the world. On some meridians an educational reform has a starting point and an end. On others they seem to have only a perpetual beginning. Any reform needs a frame of reference with core theoretical bases, but the fundamental aspects of education, including the convergence of the specialty language are still in the middle of the crises. Education itself is considered as a field of anybody’s expertise. The simple access to the power of decision appears that gives the full level of expertise for no matter who has this opportunity of decision power. The paper is an approach of several core issues derived from the expressed concern: (1) The ambiguity and plurisemantics of using basic concepts in the educational field; (2) What is understood by pedagogy and curriculum;( 3)The role of professionals of education. (4)A last part with ten core milestone of curriculum reform in the world considered to be of interest is eventually presented.. This analyze with its conclusions  is based on reflecting upon the specialty literature, and has as fundamentals an experience of more than 42 years as professional of education, from practitioner status until professor, and passing through all of the educational levels, from kindergarten to adults education, acting both in main stream and in special needs sectors. About 30 years of these 42 offered the opportunity of a bird eye scrutinize, based on acting as manager in different educational areas. Thus, some of the expressed opinions could be of interest.

  • CREATIVITY, PERFORMANCE AND EMOTIONAL BALANCE

    • Authors: Gabriela Kelemen
      Pages: 38 - 46
      Abstract: Creativity is one of the cognitive skills required by performance in the 21st century. In the current society which is fully technological and tends to automatize everything, no one can deny the importance of creativity as necessary and useful attribute of knowledge. However, there are different ways of approaching it due to its features that are like a magical aspect of thinking (Sparks, 2011, p. 3).[1] Studies have highlighted that there is mutual determination between creativity as specific, innovative and emotional intelligence. A person is considered creative if s/he can produce original, innovative, unique ideas or products. Creative thinking allows a person to explore different aspects of life in completely different ways than the common way of thinking. A manner of analysing the creative phenomenon is to observe creative personalities, to identify the cognitive characteristics that are different from the others such as creative strategies, cognitive styles, resolving strategies, overwhelming imagination, inspiration, intuition and other elements (Piirto, 2011). Rational mind is the one that confers understanding and reflection along with emotional experiences that put their mark on human personality and thinking. Creativity is a skill that can be developed in schools, if it is identified and proper strategies are used such as engaging the individual in his/her own development with all the abilities along with presenting all opportunities for social evolution.(Glassner & Schwarz, 2007)[2].[1] S. Sparks, Science looks at how to inspire creativity. Education Week, 201131(14), 1–16, p.3[1]A., Glassner, & B. B. Schwarz, What stands and develops between creative and critical thinking' Argumentation' Thinking Skills and Creativity, 20072, 10–18.

  • PRESCHOOL TEACHERS AND OTHER PRESCHOOL PROFESSIONALS IN PORTUGAL:
           DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES

    • Authors: Carla Espírito SANTO GUERREIRO, Manuel Luís PINTO CASTANHEIRA
      Pages: 47 - 56
      Abstract: The opening hours of kindergartens have been gradually extended in Portugal over the last years and so has the time devoted to the social and family support component. It is established in Preschool Education that the preschool teacher is the only professional who can legally perform pedagogical duties in the kindergarten, with a work schedule of 25 hours per week. Reality shows that over the last years, professionals other than preschool teachers have been performing tasks in this educational context, within the social or family support component. The aim of this study is to assess who these professionals are and in what time and space of the kindergarten they develop their activities: whether it is just within the social component or within the instructional component as well. To do so, we sought to determine preschool teachers’ opinion regarding the performance of those professionals and identify the areas in which they intervene. We used qualitative and quantitative field research, through a structured questionnaire survey containing closed and open questions, provided in paper format during the months of January and February 2017. The sample is composed of the preschool teachers working in both the private and public sectors in the city of Bragança – Northern Portugal. The results are expected to cast light on the following: the perceptions of a group of preschool teachers regarding the presence of other professionals performing activities within their teaching time; the activities developed; the several curricular areas laid down by the Curricular Guidelines for Preschool Education (CGPE) which are covered by the preschool teachers; and the time assigned to such areas. The study group was selected considering its representativeness regarding sociodemographic heterogeneity bearing in mind the different profiles (public and private) of the institutions where they worked

  • HAVE STILL THE ADULTS A GENUINE NEED FOR LEARNING'

    • Authors: Rodica Mariana Niculescu
      Pages: 57 - 69
      Abstract: The paper intends to highlight an important issue: the specifics of adults' learning process nowadays, the dynamics of motivation for formal learning activities (within tertiary education and/ or lifelong learning), the difficulties of educators in relation to adults' learners, and the position of society versus this segment of permanent education.  Based on a systematic observation along five academic years, it is stressed that, the stated conclusions are required to be verified by an in depth research.             The paper announces the existence of such a research, whose results will be the topic of further papers.  Some core aspects of this approach are presented. The paper has the explicit intention to emphasize a thorny contemporary problem, by pointing out some worrying aspects in adult education, which may have earlier roots in ontogenesis. The presentation intends to be an additional and serious pleading for considering education a genuine national and universal priority, by renouncing to the pretend this priority only in the official papers. The worsening of the presented aspects, within the conditions of a nebulous actuality is highlighted and, also the huge danger of the “time of to pretend” (meaning to mime a reality that does not exist as such) is explained.

  • CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVES ON IMPROVING EFFECTIVE TEACHING AT FIRST YEAR
           STUDENTS IN ENGINEERING HIGHER EDUCATION- A STUDENTS’ PERSPECTIVE

    • Authors: Lorena Peculea, Adrian Peculea
      Pages: 70 - 87
      Abstract: The ultimate criterion of effective teaching is effective and successful learning. The paper focuses on an ascertaining research that investigates the students’ opinion about the effective teaching characteristics through a survey based on a questionnaire that was sent to 233 first year students from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, attending classes to prepare for a teaching career. The revised set of characteristics of effective teaching according to the Griffith University’s PRO-Teaching project (Klopper, C., Drew, S., 2015) presented originally as ‘eight dimensions of good teaching’ (Nulty, 2001) provided a structured framework that has been the basis for our study in students’ evaluation of effective teaching. The data collection procedure was based on a survey with a 5-point Likert scale and an open-ended question with comment box. The students in the contemporary educational system prefer interactive teaching strategies, suitable personal characteristics of teachers and a good teacher-student relationship.

    • Authors: Carmen Maria CHIŞIU
      Pages: 88 - 94
      Abstract: Religious education gives sap to the desire, to ability and responsibility of self-improvement. The educated man in a religious way or the emotionally intelligent man finds his way to complete his person as well emotionally, intellectually, morally, aestheticaly, physically and professionally. It is not easy but it’s worth the effort to help those towards whom we have the responsibility to educate, to pave their way for understanding and make peace with themselves, with others and with Providence, no matter how, through Christian education, through religion classes or through an education according to the theory of emotional intelligence.

  • THE METAPHORICAL PERCEPTIONS OF PROSPECTIVE ENGINEERING TEACHERS TOWARDS
           THE “EDUCATION”, “TEACHER” AND “TEACHING” CONCEPTS

    • Authors: Lorena Peculea
      Pages: 95 - 111
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to display prospective teachers’ perceptions towards the concepts “education”, “teacher” and “teaching” through metaphors. This study is a qualitative research and data were collected via metaphors. The sample of this study consisted of 101 first year students studying in different faculties of Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania and participating in initial teachers training in the spring semester of 2016-2017 academic year. Participants completed the sentences: “Education is like … because …”, “Teacher is like … because …” and “Teaching is like…because…” The collected data was analysed through content analysis technique and interpreted accordingly. As a result, 6 categories with 71 metaphors about education, 6 categories with 52 metaphors about teacher and 6 categories with 64 metaphors about teaching were produced. It was concluded that prospective teachers had positive perceptions towards education, teacher and teaching. As another result, it could also be observed that their metaphors differed according to the faculty profile at which prospective teachers are being taught. Based on these data, the study offers a set of curriculum development solutions, oriented towards a more efficient academic teacher training program. The results are discussed in relation to their potential relevance for creating more reflexive prospective teachers and for the optimization of the teaching practice.

  • THE DYNAMICS OF MOBILITY IN THE LIGHT OF THE ASSESSMENT OF MANDATORY
           TESTS, INTRODUCED IN THE NATIONAL SYSTEM OF EVALUATION, IN STUDENTS IN
           PRIMARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATIONAL STAGES

    • Authors: Georgian BĂDICU
      Pages: 112 - 121
      Abstract: Objectives: The objective of this article is a comparative analysis of the dynamics of mobility in the light of the assessment of certain motor skills tests introduced in the primary and secondary educational system. Methods: This research was conducted on October 2015 – April 2016, on a sample of 190 students, with ages between 7 and 15. The students undergoing this research were tested on eight motor aptitude tests in the National Assessment System of Physical Education and Sports (four tests for the primary education and four for the secondary education) and the results were compared depending on gender and stage of education. Results:On the 5x5m /5x10m “shuttle” test, the dynamics of mobility was on a downward trend, both in girls and boys; on the long run test, on both genders, the dynamics of motion was on an upward trend whereas in students from the secondary education level the dynamics of mobility showed small variations; on the standing long jump test, on girls, the dynamics is on an upward trend, with very small variations, and in the secondary educational cycle, the dynamics of results shows a continuous increase, just as in boys, in both cycles of education; on the last test of aerobatic gymnastics, the dynamics of the results obtained by both girls and boys shows variations, within both cycles of education. Conclusions:The dynamics of mobility in students has shown low values in the case of the 5x5m shuttle test, in both educational cycles (both in boys and girls). The best results were achieved on the long run test, respectively on the endurance run and standing long jump.

  • THE INCLUSIVE TEACHER - ALTERNATIVE ROUTES FOR TEACHER IN THE FIELD OF
           INCLUSIVE EDUCATION. A ROMANIAN PERSPECTIVE

    • Authors: Elena MARIN
      Pages: 122 - 132
      Abstract: To respond to the needs of all students, teachers must have access to a highly qualitative teaching training system that will allow them to get access to the most important and relevant information in the field of education. It is also important for future teachers to receive the proper practicum experience that will prepare them to become the 21st century teachers. But, in order to be ready to face inclusion in the classroom, teachers must receive the proper training so that they are prepared to teach in an inclusive environment. All teachers must held a set of specific skills, teaching methods and tools so that they become able to provide children with a qualitative learning experience, that has as a main goal to value classroom diversity. That is why, we assume it is necessary to rethink the entire teacher training system in order that all teachers, regarding their specialization, to be properly trained in order to face inclusion in the classroom. The aim of this paper is to briefly present some alternative routes into the initial teacher training and continuing professional development at national level, underlining the advantages and limitation of each proposal according to the Romanian national legislation.

  • TOY PREFERENCES IN CHILDREN; IMPACT OF GENDER AND CULTURE, AN
           OBSERVATIONAL STUDY

    • Authors: Esra EMOLU, Laura TAYLOR, K. Gamze ALÇEKİÇ YAMAN, Merve TEZEL

      Abstract: Toy preferences in early childhood have an impact on and are reflective of gender socialisation which is considered as an indicator of, amongst other things, future life decisions.  This study is the pilot for the main study in which the extent to which culture affects Turkish and British children’s toy preferences together with a number of related variables will be investigated in a cross-cultural perspective.         Socialisation is the process whereby the infant learns how to become a member of the society by adapting to the ways of the culture he/she lives in. Four agents of socialisation: family, school, peer groups and mass media guide him/her through the way.

  • THE MUSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND THEIR INFLUENCE OF THE MUSICAL
           PREDISPOSITIONS DEVELOPMENT AT PRESCHOOL AGE CHILDREN

    • Authors: Gabrijela GRUJIC
      Pages: 156 - 170
      Abstract: There is a common position among experts in this field that musical predispositions are the product of cumulative interactions between inherited dispositions and environmental factors favorable to them. However, there is not enough information about their aspect which is supposed to be able to provide a systemic effect on the development of the elementary musical predisposition on preschool level.Therefore, it was necessary to create a scientific review of the traditional approach to musical activity in the current program of the musical education and then to examine the possibilities of application of modern teaching concepts and methods of the stimulative program for the purpose of studying the possibility of their influence on the development of musical predisposition on preschool level.The survey was conducted using Gordon's Primary Measures of Music Audiation test. In a comparison of the results we have come to the following conclusions:A significant influence on the development of basic musical predisposition was achieved through the activities within the stimulative program of musical education, while activities of the current program of musical education did not show a sufficient effect on their development.The hypotheses that suggested a statistically significant difference in auditory and rhythmical discrimination among children who have been involved in the implementation of the two programs (stimulative and current) has been confirmed.

  • NEEDS OF EDUCATION REFORMS AND SKILL DEVELOPMENT WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO
           THE INDIA

    • Authors: Hemant PATHAK
      Pages: 170 - 175
      Abstract: Education serves as capital for a society. The educational journey of India during the last six decades after independence has been quite exciting. India is expected to become the global powerhouse of human resource by 2025. In the emerging era of knowledge-driven society, declining workforce and aging population in developed countries, India with its large young population has the opportunity to position itself as a quality source of skilled manpower for the world.The immense scientific, technological and socio-economic development has led to a paradigm shift in the basic objectives of imparting education.While factors such as increasing competition, economic slowdown, poverty, illiteracy, population imbalances and political instability are adding pressures on the policy makers as well as common citizens, the importance of education and especially ‘relevant education’ is gaining significance as a viable solution to combat these issues in our society.  The system is also failed to fulfill market needs, resulting in a curriculum that is of low relevance to employment needs. Commercialisation and privatisation of education has proceeded, corporatisation has been banned, stifling investments in formal university education. Major education reforms are long overdue. Only then can India become a pioneer educational hub, as it once was.

      Pages: 176 - 186
      Abstract: The use  of ICT by high school students in the family. Models and options for the weekend. The development of the technology lying at the base of ITC led to changes not only in society and education, but in the case of family, it brought about challenges hard to anticipate a few decades before. The present study aims at identifying the main elements that define the use of ITC in the family, at the weekend. We analyzed data collected from a sample of high school students, concerning the preference for various activities that include or take advantage of means of communication. Due to the complexity of the issue, we made analyses based on gender, in relation to the age of the respondents, to their residence, to the family extension, starting from their religious affiliation or confession, as well as to their education level.

  • "CHILD SOCIAL PROTECTION" RECODED.

    • Authors: Calin Dragoi
      Pages: 196 - 203
      Abstract: The report presents some challenging issues regarding the drop-out of social care of institutionalised children leaving the residential (specialised institutions) or non-residential (assisted loggings for instance) care system. The situation and the major difficulties of the children, teenagers and youngsters having to leave the formal social care system were not sufficiently investigated, mostly because of the huge heterogeneity of the individual social trajectories, because of the diversity of cultural, political, financial and subjective factors operating simultaneously and of numerous social actors not always acting converging. The “traditional” social care (that assures for the beneficiaries a certain specific “safety”) finishes in some cases in the moment the young adult has to leave an institution and has to face the realities of the labour market. The assessments of the drop-outs (and sometimes also the official statistics) are only sporadic and with less relevance for an objective social cartography. The aim of the present study was to identify some of the most relevant risk factors and the most frequent scenarios associated with dropping out of contacts with community-based social care services and also to analyse some of the possible strategies in order to avoid the rapid deterioration of the status of the young people leaving the “safe formal care system”.

  • HOW CAN ONE POSSIBLY DETERMINE THE MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES'

    • Authors: Sanda BORDEI
      Pages: 204 - 212
      Abstract: Measuring the multiple intelligences proves to be a very sensitive subject since Howard Gardner has always stated very clearly his position against the psychometric approach of the intelligence. This article aims to present some tools in the frame of the psychometric approach that could still be used in the every day practice of teaching and learning in order to identify and foster one`s different types of intelligence. These are: Thomas Armstrong`s Multiple Intelligences  Inventory, Multiple Intelligences Development Assessment Scale (MIDAS) for Children by Branton Shearer and McClellan &Conti`s Multiple Intelligences Inventory. They had been adapted for Romanian population for research purpose and the factor analysis was used. A discussion about the main findings and their limits will be presented.multiple intelligences, Gardner, MIDAS, factor analysis

  • THE PSYCHO-SOCIAL CONTEXT OF EVALUATION ACCORDING TO ACADEMIC PROFESSORS.
           CASE STUDY

    • Authors: Gabriel Albu
      Pages: 213 - 228
      Abstract: Lately, the timing and process of evaluation seem to have become very important for the dynamics and regulation of the education system and in determining the quality of its performance. In achieving pupils'/ students' quantitative and statistical performance, but also qualitative, more spiritual (less targeted by the administrators of the system and by researchers in formal education), a decisive role is played not only by the level of the results obtained in tests/ exams but also by the psychosocial atmosphere in which  evaluative situations take place. The study captures and presents some of the options of a group of teachers from UPG Ploieşti regarding several dimensions of the psychosocial context of evaluation and draws attention to the fact that the evaluative act is not confined - as we tend to believe - only on the technical, quantitative, standardized aspects, but includes, on the one hand, the evaluator's vision of the state of the evaluated individual before, during and after the exam and, on the other hand, the attitude of the teacher-evaluator in view of creating an atmosphere conducive to the best performance of that student in the exam.

  • SIMULTANEOUS CLASSES, A PEDAGOGICAL ALTERNATIVE

    • Authors: Carmen Maria CHIŞIU
      Pages: 229 - 241
      Abstract: In the Romanian educational system still exists simultaneous classes in which, on the grounds of a small number of pupils on a level of study, in the same classroom under the guidance of one teacher, operates more classes. If the teacher can make teaching an art, this way of organizing learning can be an opportunity for students. In this paper we suggest a few ideas that may enhance the effectiveness of school learning, under simultaneous classes.

  • THE SPECIFIC OF HOMESCHOOLING AS EDUCATIONAL ALTERNATIVE

    • Authors: Camelia Bran
      Pages: 250 - 260
      Abstract: More and more parents consider education at home, homeschooling, as a solution to the crisis of the educational system from Romania. In our country, there are few scientific studies analysis of the impact of this alternative on cognitive acquisitions and the development of personality traits of children. The study proposed by us, carried out in the spring 2017, had as its primary objective the analysis of how homeschooling is practiced and carried out in families in our country, especially due to the fact that, in Romania, this educational alternative is not legalized. One of the methods of data collection were the online questionnaire. We have noticed that parents who already practice this system education face the prejudices of those around, most of the time, not even supporting the family or close friends. Sometimes due to this system of thinking, parents do not even dare to say they are educating themselves their own children, fearing that they will be judged. The legalization of this system and putting it "in the light" of the scientific approach would be just for the benefit of the children.

  • THE DYNAMIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PERCEIVED PARENTAL SUPPORT AND ONLINE
           BULLYING

    • Authors: Dana Bălaş-Timar, Sonia IGNAT, Edgar DEMETER
      Pages: 261 - 268
      Abstract: Bullying is defined as a hostile / exclusionary and deceptive behavior of humiliation. A child is labeled, teased, mocked in his circle of knowledge or by colleagues calling him in a certain way (referring to physical appearance or medical / family issues). The phenomenon of "bullying" is much more common than we would like to believe. It happens on school corridors, in the yard, on the streets and, unfortunately, sometimes in classrooms. Undetected on time, bullying may leave traumas and irreversible repercussions on the child's adaptability to society. Our research team has developed the project Keeping youth safe from Cyberbullying, ID 2016-3-TR01-KA205-036619 under Erasmus+, that aims to deeper understand the dynamics of cyberbullying in online environments among youth, to develop educational resources for professionals involved in youth activities in order to prevent these type behaviors, to develop youth skills to protect themselves from cyberbullying and to disseminate findings among educational professionals. One of our first interests was in analyzing the relationship between online bullying incidents and perceived parental support, due to the fact that psychological protection from any kind of harassment starts from home. Our conclusion is that there is a dynamic relationship between online bullying incidents and perceived parental support. Qualitative results and bulling prevention strategies are discussed.

  • MANIFESTATIONS OF THE NEW PARADIGM OF EDUCATION IN THE CONTEXT OF THE
           ROMANIAN EDUCATION REFORM

    • Authors: Liana Tausan
      Pages: 269 - 279
      Abstract: Among the lines taken into account in the reform of Romanian education, the reform of the curriculum is an essential segment and this is now a distinct theme in the sciences of education. The Curricular reform program represents a coherent approach to the educational national policy, designed and developed in line with current European trends and practices. The new approach to the National Curriculum has generated a different type of culture curriculum characterized by: centering the process of teaching on skills training objectives and skills; focusing on transforming the school teacher in a school by promoting student-centered interactive learning methods; cultivating students' creative skills and the creation of various learning situations; an inter and trans-disciplinary approach to school curriculum; the curriculum approach correlated with school performance and evaluation issues of initial and ongoing training of teachers. Following the major reform of education, adherence to the principles of the new educational paradigms – which appeared and were developed in answer to the need of adapting education to the challenges and changes of our contemporary world – is increasingly present in the educational process in Romania.

  • NEW PERSPECTIVES IN LEARNING ROMANIAN LANGUAGE IN SCHOOLS AND SECTIONS
           TAUGHT IN HUNGARIAN LANGUAGE

    • Authors: Mariana Norel
      Pages: 280 - 287
      Abstract: Since September 2017, the new curricula for the 5th grade are valid (Annex 2 of OMEN no. 3393/28.02.2017), based on the framework plan approved by OMEN 3590/05.04.2016. For Romanian language and literature subject, there are two curricula: Romanian language and literature, 5th to 8th grades, and Romanian language and literature for schools and sections taught in Hungarian language, allowing pupils to use alternative textbooks. The secondary school curriculum, as well as alternative textbooks in order to study Romanian language and literature in schools and sections taught in Hungarian language continue the ones for primary school. This article highlights the importance of studying the Romanian language as the official and day-by-day communication language, by the students having a different mother tongue, and the opportunity which is offered to these students by the textboooks, through applying the communicative-functional model and through the pragmatic perspective of language study.

           TO THE STUDENT

    • Authors: Carmen Maria CHIŞIU
      Pages: 288 - 295
      Abstract: In a questionnaire handed out to 79 teachers, participants in the two-tier training courses and in a focus group with 12 participants of university student’s practitioners and mentors, we aimed to identify the causes that lead to the lagging behind of students. Situated on the third place, as aimportace, one of the reasons was considered to be the lack of differentiation of learning due to the lack of knowledge of individual pupils' peculiarities.The pupil's psychic life is extremely rich, complex, making study and knowledge difficult, lasting and of utmost importance. This responsibility of producing and using these documents lies with the teacher, the tutor, the instructor, or the student’s mentor.In the present paper we try to present some tools and methods, the way in which the actors of education can use the psycho-pedagogical sheet, in order to contribute to the balanced development of the personality of the student.

  • THE IMPACT OF FAMILY EDUCATIONAL STRATEGIES ON ABNORMAL PERSONALITY
           DEVELOPMENT

    • Authors: Doina USACI
      Pages: 296 - 304
      Abstract: This paper presents the most relevant parentig strategies and their impact on personality development. Abnormal personality follows the same type of evolution as the normal personality, in terms of the nature of the determinants factors of development. The quality of these factors and their actions makes the difference. We have presented some factors: (1) family educational practices, (2) parental education strategies (3) dimensions of parental behavior (4) alienated family behaviors and their impact on the the development of abnormal personality. All these inadequate educational strategies will disrupt the normal process of personality development, alter the child's self-image, his cognitive schemas, relational modalities, and increase the risk of building a rigid, defensive personality. Early identification of such risks and intervention on the child and family may have real prophylactic and curative effects.
