Abstract/Notes: The dynamic and complex nature of children’s sense of physical environment (Lim, Barton, 2010) with respect to the location of the space concerning cultural conditions, relations, and parameters direct design criteria to meet pedagogic, physiologic, and biological needs and requirements of the children in the preschool interiors. This enquiry has grown out of the desire to examine the parameters, cultural aspects, dimensions, or contexts affecting the built environment in the preschool interiors where children spend most of their time out of their home. Conceptual components affecting the interior space of pre-school education centers are identified and based on literature review, interviews, surveys, observational data, and statistical concepts such as education models, socio-economic conditions, appreciation of adults, child–teacher–parent relations, and location related to culture. These contextual connections and relations with the interior environment shaped the body of the study. Based on the above-mentioned items, a research questionnaire was used in centers located in the Çankaya and Çayyolu regions of Ankara. Subjects were randomly selected from among the parents of these preschools’ students. Accordingly, the research questionnaire was directed to a total of 200 respondents from 15 pre-school centers; these preschool education centers are the ones applying the Montessori education model, providing education in English and highlighting features like physical space comfort, etc. Those centers have maintained their corporate identity thanks to the above-counted features. Consequently, data has shown that the education model, socio-economic conditions, appreciation of adults, child–teacher–parent relations, and location have an indirect and direct bearing on parent perception of the preschool centers which affects the centers’ formation of Interior spatial design. [Anaokullarının mekansal oluşumu,çocuğun,değişen fiziksel çevre koşullarına bağlı olarak gelişen karmaşık ve dinamik bir etkileşim sürecidir. Farklı kültürel koşullar, ilişkiler ve parametreler bu mekanlarda pedagojik, psikolojik ve biyolojik gereksinimleri doğurmaktadır. Bu çalışmanın amacı çocukların ev dışında en çok vakit geçirdiği ana okullarının mekan oluşumunda etkili olan kültürel parametrelerin, boyut ve bağlamını ortaya koymaktır. Literatür taraması, mülakat ve istatistiksel araştırma sonucunda elde edilen verilere göre; Eğitim Modeli, Socio-Ekonomik koşullar, Yetişkin ölçütü, Çocuk-Eğitim-Ebeveyn İlişkileri ve Konum Kültür ile ilişkilidir. Bu kavramsal İlişkiler çalışmanın gövdesini oluşturmaktadır. Yukarıda belirtilen unsurlarla ilişkili olarak Ankara Çankaya ve Çayyolu semtlerinde yer alan anaokullarında anket çalışması yapılmıştır. Anketler, bahsi geçen bölgede 15 Anaokulunda 200 katılımcıya uygulanmıştır. Anaokulları Montessori eğitim modeli uygulayan, İngilizce eğitim veren, fiziksel şartları ile öne çıkan ve bir markanın zinciri olmak üzere sınıflandırılmıştır. Sonuç olarak, yapılan farklı sınıflandırmalara bağlı olarak, değişen kültürel parametrelerin Anaokullarının mekansal oluşumunda direk ve dolaylı etkisi bulunmaktadır.]

Abstract/Notes: In my paper, I will examine the ways in the active and creative learning with all sensory perceptions from the educational perspective. It concerns the integrated switching of individual learning techniques and learning strategies in DAF (GFL) instruction. First of all, I will handle action and project elements in foreign language lesson first become I, which different aspects action and project oriented of learning in foreign language instruction to treat. Here plays the positive effect of the Montessori Method, which emphasizes working with all sense channels. Because the more sensory impressions are opened, so much the better new vocabulary in the memory is stored. One assumes the learning in instruction to participate actively and the opportunity orders themselves to them by practical doing and experiences linguistic authority to acquire. A goal of my contribution is to develop an applicable method for forei gn language instruction in order to make active, creative, motivating and discovering learning procedures possible. This carries high concentration ability and an improvement out of keeping achievement with the acquisition and promotes creativity. This is to carry an interactive learning procedure out for the increase of the quality in the foreign language authority.

Abstract/Notes: This study aims to analyze the interior design of a learning space based on three alternative teaching models applied nowadays. The study gathers the overall information of interior space design, alternative teaching models, children’s needs and analyzes the interaction of the three selected teaching models with classroom design, besides it suggests what educational institutions can do at a general level to contribute to the improvement of early education. The study is designed using descriptive research model, scientific observation and to collect factual data 72 teachers from Ankara (Turkey) were surveyed. Three different schools were analyzed by means of teaching model application within interior space design, a survey was administered in order to determine how classroom design supports the teaching-learning process and follows the principles of the teaching models. Research findings suggest that special attention should be given to classroom interior design since young children’s behavior and social interactions with their peers and teachers are influenced by the spatial arrangement in classrooms. Likewise if the interior design of the classroom is based on teaching models’ learning outcomes, the capacity and attitude of both teacher and student in the educational process are improved, while appropriate conditions are created for a pedagogical practice in the classroom.

Abstract/Notes: Internationalisierung ist heute eines der wichtigsten Themen in diversen Sektoren. Viele nationale Bildungsbewegungen versuchen, durch ihre internationalen Filialen oder durch Zusammenarbeit im internationalen Märkte zu expandieren. Die Gülen-Bewegung ist eine dieser Bewegungen, die ihre Schulen erfolgreich internationalisiert hat und somit in den letzten drei Jahrzehnten zu einer internationalen Bildungsbewegung geworden ist, wie die Waldorf- und Montessori-Bewegung. Ziel dieser Studie ist es, die Internationalisierung der von Gülen inspirierten Schulen zu untersuchen. Ein qualitatives Forschungsdesign wird verwendet, um dieses Problem zu untersuchen. Halbstrukturierte Interviews werden mit Leitern der Gülen inspirierten Schulen aus drei Kontinenten und Experten der Bewegung durchgeführt. In der Feldstudie wurden zunächst die Bildungsphilosophie, das Schulkonzept und die Pädagogik der Gülen-Bewegung untersucht. Anschließend werden Internationalisierungsstrategien, Gründung und der Erfolg der Gülen inspirierten Schulen in verschiedenen Regionen der Welt untersucht. Am Ende werden die Auswirkungen des gescheiterten Putschversuchs in der Türkei im Juli 2016 auf Gülen inspirierte Schulen, ihre aktuelle Situation und die Zukunft dieser Schulen mit den Teilnehmern dieser Studie diskutiert. Die Ergebnisse zeigen das spezifische Bildungsmodell der Gülen inspirierten Schulen; wie diese Schulen mit kulturellen und sprachlichen Unterschieden in einem internationalen Umfeld umgehen; wie sie dem politischen Druck auf die Bildungseinrichtungen der Bewegung entgegenwirken und schlussendlich die Qualitäts- und Finanzfragen dieser Bildungseinrichtungen in verschiedenen Regionen. [Internationalization is one of the most important subjects in different sectors today. A lot of national educational movements attempt to open international markets by opening branches or working on cooperation. The Gülen Movement is one of these movements, which has successfully internationalized their schools and, thus has become an international educational movement in the last three decades, like Waldorf and Montessori movements. The purpose of this study is to examine the internationalization of the Gülen Inspired Schools. A qualitative research design is used to study this issue. Semi-structured interviews are conducted with managers of the Gülen inspired schools from three continents and experts on the movement. Initially, the educational philosophy, school concept and the pedagogy of the Gülen movement was examined on the field study. Following, internationalization strategies, founding and the success of the Gülen inspired schools in different regions of the world is researched. At the end, the effects of the failed coup attempt in Turkey in July 2016 on Gülen inspired schools, their current situation and the future of these schools is discussed with the participants of this study. The results show, the unique educational model of the Gülen inspired schools; how these schools deal with cultural and language differences in international environments; how they challenge political pressure on educational institutions of the movement; and quality and financial issues of these educational institutions in different regions.]

Abstract/Notes: This study aimed to examine the opinions of Montessori educators on the digital assessment tool they use in terms of 21st-century teacher skills. The study sample covered 14 Montessori educators working in early childhood classes in public and private preschool educational institutions, located in Barcelona and Istanbul, where the Montessori educational approach is applied. In the study, the experiences of the Montessori educators with the digital assessment tool they use as the assessment tool were examined in terms of the identified 21st-century teacher skills. To this end, the research was designed with a phenomenological approach in the qualitative research method. The data were obtained through the personal information form and structured interview questions prepared for the digital assessment tool used by the Montessori educators. In the analysis of this data, the phenomenological study of Moustakas (1994) was introduced through the steps of the analysis. The perspectives of the Montessori educators concerning digital assessment, their application experiences regarding the digital assessment tool, and their views on their experiences were discussed in terms of utilization of the digital tool applications, as well as to use and evaluate information, their skills regarding collaborative work and communication, and finally their communication skills with the parents, which are among the 21st-century teacher skills. It was concluded that different factors influenced the opinions of the Montessori educators, where there were positive and negative expressions within the scope of these skills regarding the digital assessment tool.
