Abstract/Notes: In contrast to intellectual giftedness reflected in high academic performance and often measured by IQ tests, there is growing recognition that other forms of giftedness exist. This paper focuses on creative giftedness, defined as high potential to produce work that is original and context appropriate. After a brief introduction to the psychological basis of creative giftedness, the role of school context in the development of creative potential is highlighted. Then an empirical study suggesting that creative potential is influenced by educational context is presented; pupils attending traditional and Montessori schools in France were compared on a set of creativity tasks in both the graphic and verbal domains. Cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses were conducted as children were seen at two measurement occasions, with approximately one year delay. Results indicated greater scores on measures of creative potential for children in the Montessori context. The discussion situates the results in a broader context of issues concerning the development of creative giftedness through education.

Abstract/Notes: In the following contribution it will be shown that and how the theocratic heritage has perpetuated itself in more or less changed form in newer educational theories. Its transformation can be understood as its secularization, which passes on the absolute as epistemological totalitarianism in the form of violence, provided that it was armed with power of action. As examples here serve the multifaceted cultural or humanistic pedagogy ("Kulturpädagogik" or "Geisteswissenschaftliche Pädagogik" - GP), which is still important today, as well as three important concepts of reform pedagogy (respectively the "New Education Movement"), namely those of Maria Montessori, Rudolf Steiner and Pavel Blonsky.

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.
