Abstract/Notes: Bu çalışmanın amacı alternatif okul olarak nitelendirilen düşünsel yapının Türkiye’deki uygulamalarını incelemektir. Alternatif eğitim, çocuğun mutluluğunu temel prensip olarak görme ve tüm sayıtlılarını bu prensip üzerine kurma gibi iddialarla karşımıza çıkmaktadır. Bu çalışmada alternatif okulları cazip kılan nedenler ve Türkiye’deki alternatif eğitim uygulamalarının aslına benzerlik ve farklılıkları incelmiştir. Araştırma nitel bir araştırmadır. Araştırma, İstanbul ilindeki Montessori, Reggio Emilia ve Waldorf yaklaşımını uygulayan eğitim kurumlarında görev yapan öğretmen ve idareciler ile yapılan görüşmeler şeklinde yapılmıştır. Bu amaca en uygun, yarı- yapılandırılmış görüşme formu hazırlanmıştır. Araştırmacının yaptığı gözlemlerde veri olarak kullanılmıştır. Araştırmada alternatif okullarda; okulun genel bilgilerine, öğretmenin görevlerine, sınıf yönetimine, uygulanan eğitim programına, çocuk gelişimine, veli-okul ilişkisine, okul yönetimine ve eğitim modeline ilişkin bulgulardan faydalanılmıştır. Yapılan çalışma sonucunda alternatif okulda okuyan çocukların iletişim becerilerinin yüksek olduğu ortaya çıkmıştır. / The aim of this study is to examine the practices of the intellectual structure, which is described as an alternative school, in Turkey.

Abstract/Notes: This article aims to conduct a comparative analysis between early childhood traditional education and alternatives in primary education, such as the Maria Montessori method and Reggio Emilia approach. This article will be relevant and advisable for educators and parents to understand the key differences between each approach. There is no doubt that early childhood education plays an essential role in educating young minds. The question is how to find the best way to educate young children, what to choose: teacher-centered or child-centered models of teaching? Furthermore, from a parental view, the question is not only which method works the best, but also which one is more beneficial for “My Child”. Parents have difficulty choosing the right teaching option specifically for their children, which would help them become successful members of modern society in the future. Taking into consideration our teaching experience of more than twenty-five years, along with researching many pedagogical and educational books and articles, we came to an interesting conclusion about both – traditional and alternatives in teaching young minds. Alongside, we discovered that no matter how beneficial is the true idea of any teaching method, unfortunately, not every school is a true barrier to the philosophy, theory, and teaching approach behind the school's name brand.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia education remain three of the most popular models for alternative early childhood education. Each of these approaches has developed globally, with a rich history of supporting children’s educational freedom. This narrative analysis provides a means for early childhood educators and scholars to understand the aims, philosophical and theoretical frameworks, historical development, benefits, and challenges in these models and their methods of practice. As early childhood education evolves with technology and as re-conceptualizations about early education occur, an understanding of these alternatives to traditional education models is important. While adaptive options of these models may emerge in education systems across national contexts, this review allows educators to consider their applications and cultural appropriateness in specific local and community contexts.

Beyond Developmentalism? Early Childhood Teachers' Understandings of Multiage Grouping in Early Childhood Education and Care

Available from: SAGE Journals

Publication: Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, vol. 34, no. 4

Pages: 55-63

See More

Abstract/Notes: Postdevelopmental perspectives in early childhood education and care increasingly reference alternative ways of understanding learning, growth and development in early learning. Drawing on these ideas, this paper examines research findings which focused on early childhood teachers' understandings of multiage grouping. The findings suggested that teachers used predominantly developmental approaches to describing their experiences of multiage grouping, and proposed that the use of postdevelopmental perspectives in multiage grouping research has the potential to realise new ways of understanding learning and development as both concepts and practices within the multiage classroom.

Abstract/Notes: This study aims to examine relationship between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and mathematics teaching efficacy. This study's subjects are 73 early childhood pre-service teachers from two four-year universities, A and B, situated in Daejeon Metropolitan City. Their mathematical content knowledge and mathematics teaching efficacy were analysed using a concept map and a questionnaire, respectively. The results are as follows. First, there was static correlation between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and mathematics teaching efficacy. Second, relationship between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and outcome expectation was not statistically significant. Third, there was static correlation between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and efficacy expectation. The above results mean that pre-service teachers' good learning of a specific subject's content knowledge leads to their excellent teaching, and therefore good learning of content knowledge is crucial. / 본 연구의 목적은 예비유아교사들의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학적 교수효능감과의 관계를 알아보는 것이다. 본 연구의 대상은 대전광역시에 위치한 4년제 A, B 대학 예비유아교사 73명이다. 유아수학내용지식은 개념도를 통해, 수학적 교수효능감은 질문지를 통해 분석하였다. 연구결과, 첫째, 예비유아교사의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학적 교수효능감과는 정적인 상관이 있었다. 둘째, 예비유아교사의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학적 교수 효능감 중 결과기대 효능감과의 관계는 통계적으로 유의미하지 않았다. 셋째, 예비유아교사의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학 교수 능력신념 효능감과는 정적인 상관이 있었다. 이와 같은 결과는 과목 내용지식을 잘 배우면 앞으로 잘 가르칠 수 있게 된다고 볼 수 있기 때문에 내용지식을 잘 배우는 것은 매우 중요하다고 할 수 있다.

The Development and Preliminary Validation of an Early Childhood Normalisation Observation Schedule (ECNOS) for Early Childhood Montessori Settings

Available from: University of Western Australia - Institutional Repository

See More

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori (1870-1952) proposed four planes or stages in children's development, within which were sensitive periods. Normalisation, a transformative process, typically occurs during the first plane of development (birth to six years) and is the essence of Montessori education philosophy. It is a time when children exercise self-discipline and concentration. No direct observation protocols exist to assess normalisation. This research developed the Early Childhood Normalisation Observation Schedule, through three sequentially linked phases. A systematic review of the literature, referral to expert panels and cognitive interviews, and two separate observation studies demonstrated rates of children's normalisation behaviours in authentic Montessori classes.

Abstract/Notes: This study investigated factors that affect access to the general early childhood education curriculum of 4 kindergarten-aged children with disabilities attending an inclusive Montessori program; it replicated with adaptations, components of a previous study on access. Factors included curriculum participation, engagement, type of involvement, and provided instructional supports. Quantitative and qualitative methods were employed to analyze video data of each child recorded during the daily open work period. The children in the present study exhibited slightly higher engagement and received more instructional supports than in the previous study. The general conclusions were that the 4 children participated in the Montessori curriculum to varying degrees due to a complex set of associated factors related to child characteristics, teacher skills, instructional support, and attributes of the Montessori educational approach.
