Abstract/Notes: Primary education serves as the cornerstone for lifelong learning and development, laying the foundation for academic achievement, socialization, and critical thinking skills. Over the years, primary education methodologies have evolved in response to changing educational philosophies, cultural shifts, technological advancements, and research findings on effective teaching practices. This article provides a comprehensive review of the evolution of primary education methodologies, examining key approaches, their theoretical underpinnings, current status, and future trends. Traditional teacher-centered approaches, progressive child-centered methodologies, Montessori methods, constructivism, technology-integrated learning, and inquiry-based learning are explored in depth, highlighting their respective contributions to enhancing student engagement, fostering critical thinking skills, and promoting personalized learning experiences. Drawing on a synthesis of literature from educational psychology, pedagogy, and curriculum development, this article offers insights into the complex landscape of primary education methodologies and provides valuable considerations for educators, policymakers, and researchers striving to optimize teaching and learning outcomes in primary education settings.

Abstract/Notes: This article investigates Rabindranath Tagore’s educational vision, which underpinned the three institutions he set up in India – Santiniketan (1901), Visva-Bharati (1921) and Sriniketan (1922). It argues that this vision is still relevant for the world of today and tomorrow, and that it should be taken into account in designing any educational model for the future. Tagore rejected the modern mechanical learning that focuses merely on cultivation of the individual’s mind, in favour of learning that encourages the creativity, imagination and moral awareness of students. He believed that education should be not for mere “success” or “progress” but for “illumination of heart” and for inculcation of a spirit of sympathy, service and self-sacrifice in the individual, so that s/he could rise above egocentrism and ethnocentrism to a state of global consciousness or worldcentrism. In pursuing this argument, I refer to Tagore’s letters, lectures, interviews and essays, both in Bengali and in English, a body of his short stories, his novel The Home and the World and his allegorical poem “Two Birds”. I also explain his awareness of the educational movements of his time in the West, and draw brief parallels with selected Western luminaries in the field, such as Plato, Montaigne, Rousseau and John Dewey. My contention is that although some may dismiss Tagore’s educational principles as “rickety sentimentalism” in a world that is palpable and real, his ideas of human fellowship, unity and creativity, and kinship for nature seem irrefutable with the rise of multiculturalism and the looming ecological crisis threatening world peace.

Thus, research topics were selected to improve understandings of musical educations, musical education practices' environments in kindergarten field regarding of three questions: First, how were actual educations like by a teacher's point of view?, Second, what were teachers' attitude toward on accepting musical educations programmed by private institutions? Third, what were teachers' difficulties for teaching musical educations? Based on the research result, answering the first question, "how were actual musical educations like by a teacher's point, musical educations were performing as subject of living discussion time and as the one of activities such as "Sing-Along". Answering the second question, what were teachers' attitude toward on accepting muscial educations programmed by private institutions?, the answer was found as the attitude was positive. Answering the third question, what were teachers' difficulties for teaching musical educations?, it was found that kindergarten teachers were struggling with advising musical education concepts due to a lack of confidence on educations and of applied ideas to musical educations. This research concluded that. However, by restraining the musical education, they were willing to teach musical educations to students systematically. Eventually, this research would challenged current kindergarten teachers to be suggested for needs of restraining musical education and systematic musical education. / 본 연구는 실제 유아교육현장에서 이루어지고 있는 음악교육을 통해 유아교사가 음악교육에 대해 어떠한 생각을 갖고 있으며, 교육현장에서 음악교육을 어떻게 계획하고 실행하는지, 유아교육현장에 들어오는 외부의 음악수업에 대한 교사의 생각은 어떠한지, 그리고 유아들에게 음악을 교육할 때 교사의 어려움이 무엇인지를 알아보고자 유치원 음악교육활동의 직접 관찰과 4명교사의 심층면담을 실시하였다. 본 연구에서 유아교육현장에서의 음악교육에 대한 이해와 유아들에게 실시되는 음악교육과 교사에게 필요한 음악적 환경, 교사들의 음악교육실행의 어려움에 대해 알아보기 위하여 다음과 같은 연구문제를 설정하였다. 첫째, 교사를 통해 본 유치원 현장의 음악 교육은 어떠한가? 둘째, 유치원에 들어오는 외부의 음악수업에 대한 교사의 생각은 어떠한가? 셋째, 음악교육을 통해 본 교사의 음악지도의 어려움은 무엇인가? 연구 결과 교사를 통해 본유치원의 음악 교육은 수업 속에 활용되는 음악으로 음악 교육이라기보다는 생활주제를 유아들에게 전달하는 방법으로 사용되고 있거나, ‘노래 부르기’와 같은 활동만으로 음악교육을 활용하고 있었다. 둘째, 교사들은 외부 음악 교육에 대해 긍정적으로 생각을 하였으며, 외부음악교육에 대해 그에 따른 교육상의 문제점에 대해서도 인지하고 있었다. 셋째, 교사를 통해 본 교사의 음악지도의 어려움은 음악적 자신감 결여와 지도방법의 연계방법 부족으로 인하여 음악적 개념지도의 어려움을 보여주고 있었다. 본 연구를 통해 현직교사들에게 음악 교육의 재교육의 필요성과 예비교사들을 위한 ‘유아음악교육전문 교사자격’ 체제를 실시하여 유아교육에서도 유아음악교육 전문성 교사 배출시스템 설계의 필요성을 제언하고자 한다.
