Islam v ameriških in slovenskih učbenikih
Uroš Dokl, 2009, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Objektivnost in politična korektnost ameriških učbenikov v odnosu do obravnave islama se kažeta v bogatem slikovnem gradivu in poudarjanju pomena kulturne in verske zgodovine islama. Trenutnega odnosa ZDA do islama v učbenikih ne gre zaznati. Politična korektnost je prisotna tudi takrat, ko se v novejših učbenikih opisujejo teroristični napadi 11. septembra 2001. Primerjava slovenskih in ameriških učbenikov za zgodovino v srednjih šolah je pokazala, da so slednji bolj obširni, več časa in vsebin posvečajo kulturi in umetnosti islama ter mnogo večji poudarek posvečajo povzemanju, utrjevanju in poglabljanju snovi ob koncu poglavij. Trenutni slovenski učbeniki, v primerjavi z ameriškimi, islamu posvečajo manj pozornosti. Novi učni načrti za zgodovino v splošnih gimnazijah obravnavo islama umeščajo v okvir izbirnih širših tem, razen v primeru obvezne širše teme 20. stoletje in začetek 21. stoletja, kjer se islam obravnava v temah: Težave demokratične ureditve v sodobnem svetu ter Teroristična gibanja in njihov vpliv na svet. Zasnova novega učnega načrta postavlja splošno védenje in znanje o islamu na obrobje. Z obravnavo islama v ameriških učbenikih se ukvarja American Textbook Council, ki v poročilu Islam in the Classroom: What the TextbookS tell Us nasprotuje politični korektnosti. Poročilo poziva avtorje in založnike učbenikov k bolj strogemu ter radikalnemu odnosu do obravnave islama v ameriških učbenikih. Opravljena analiza poročila, je ob številnih nepravilnostih in netočnostih pri interpretaciji islama, pokazala tudi izredno podporo medijev poročilu, ki skuša islam predstaviti kot sovražnika zahodne kulture.

Another step towards a virtual university in construction IT
Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: Nine universities started a project in autumn 2001 with the aim to develop an interuniversity postgraduate program in Construction Information Technology. The program is intended to be offered to students on most of the partner universities. On some of them it should start already in the academic year 2003/2004. The students will attend the subjects in different ways: face-to-face at home universities, face-to-face at partner universities, as well as by means of open and distant learning. The program has been developed with the purpose that students will not only get the best subjects the partneruniversities can offer in this specific area, but will also get the very important experience of other universities, countries and cultures, as well as of using IT in the learning and working process. Some partner universities, like University of Salford, already offer programmes in open distant learning mode. To extend the experiences and to try more, mostly videoconferencing technologies, TU Dresden and University of Maribor joint twoclasses of students in the early 2003 and run a 30 hour seminar on "Mobile Computing in Construction." Valuable observations have been taken, which were then used to conceptualize an ideal distant learning environment. The paper describes the background, the teaching experiment itself, the observations made, and the specification of an integral distant learning environment, as a framework of a future Virtual University in Construction IT.

Interuniversity postgraduate program in construction IT
Fátima Farinha, Ricardo Gonçalves, Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2003, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper reports on an interuniversity collaboration, funded by Erasmus Program, which develops a European Master course in Construction Information Technology (ITC) to complement the existing portfolio of postgraduate programsand to meet the growing demand for such skills in the construction industry all over the world. The curriculum is defined in a way that courses will be offered from different universities in Europe, as face-to-face education as well as long distance learning courses, which will give students the possibility not just to study in other countries, but also to tailor the program to their own needs and wishes. Students will not only get the best subjects but will also get the very important experience of different universities and cultures as well as of using information technology (IT) in the learning process. The paper concludes presenting and discussing ITC@EDU network, which main purpose is to support and link together teachers in the area of IT in construction. Therefore, the significance of the work done exceeds the postgraduate program, as it has become the linking point for the further development of ITC education globally.

The role of background music in the English language classroom
Anna Sorger, 2013, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: According to the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia, the interest in second language learning has been increasing in recent years. In the context of primary and secondary education in Slovenia, English language is prominent in the field of foreign languages. A quite similar picture can also be seen in the context of non-formal educational system for adults (http://www.stat.si). Throughout recent years, more and more attention has been given to the importance of a learning environment. Stimulating and pleasant learning environment has a considerable impact on the actors of an educational process and the results of a learning process. Many researchers and educators have been trying to discover the path to effective teaching and learning. In the 1970s, Dr. Georgi Lozanov, the Bulgarian psychotherapist, developed a teaching method called Suggestopedia. The approach was based on the idea that positive suggestion stimulates the learning process. Relaxation techniques, music and a pleasant environment are central to this approach. Mainly it was used to teach foreign languages. The purpose of this graduation thesis is to determine the impact of background music in the English language classroom. Additionally, it is examined whether the age factor plays a role in the perception acceptance to listening to music in the English classroom. It is assumed that learners have a positive experience regarding the use of background music in the English language classroom. By using a questionnaire we found out that learners (both, younger and older) are more relaxed during English lessons when background music is being played. Learners also tend to listen to it more often during English lessons. It was also found out that, compared to younger learners, adult learners use various relaxation techniques in order to increase relaxation during studying more often.

Otherness - challenge or obstacle in multimedia translation
Barbara Majcenovič Kline, 2011, professional article

Abstract: As the world becomes increasingly unified, there is a growing tendency for language transfer in audiovisual media. Media are one of many different channels through which globalization is rapidly occurring. Although audiovisual (or multimedia) translation may not have been discussed much until recently, in the last twenty years, awareness of the importance of this kind of communication has grown considerably because the development of new technologies. This paper will examine whether translation training is keeping up with theory on the translation process and its product. It will address such issues as how to acquire multimedia translation competence, how to design a lesson to achieve long-term goals, and how to determine the teacher's and the student's roles in translation activities. I will discuss possible ways of introducing the predominant and/or prevailing types of multimedia translation to students of translation, giving some practical examples for classroom dynamics.

Challenges of advanced technologies and school of the future
Ivan Gerlič, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: The era of advanced technology claims a different individual. The individual that would undisturbed function in the era of digitalization and would better perceive and protect our environment with the help of accomplishments and benefits of advanced information and communication technology (ICT). There is no better time for learning and concretization of these values as in school. Nowadays pupils, the pupils of digital era, are more and more experienced in the usage of contemporary media and networks. That is why they require the modification of conditions and teachers' role in the school. Will new information and multimedia or hypermedia support for classrooms and new didactical ideas improve learning results, and stimulate innovation and greater pleasure towards learning and knowledge? All these questions will be answered in our contribution.

Analysis of didactic games in selected coursebooks
Mateja Krajnc, 2017, master's thesis

Abstract: For early foreign language learning, it is typical that it is carried out in a dynamic, varied and child-friendly way. This means that there is a wide variety of media used in these lessons, which enrich the learning process and make learning more efficient and, most importantly, more interesting for the students. One of the many media is also didactic games, which is being used more and more in practice. Due to the actuality of the topic of didactic games, the purpose of this Master’s thesis is to analyze didactic games in selected coursebooks for English in the fourth grade of primary school. In the theoretical part the terms “(child’s) play”, “game” and “didactic game” are defined, based on the technical literature. The importance of child’s play for the development of children and the significance of games in the educational process are presented. Numerous types of didactic games are listed and presented, along with their use in the classroom. Furthermore, the term “coursebook” is defined and the importance of its role in the educational process illustrated. At the end of the theoretical section, the requirements for coursebook design are presented and the characteristics of a quality coursebook listed. In the empirical section of the thesis, the analysis that was carried out based on the selected coursebooks is presented. The research shows that there is a small share of didactic games in the selected coursebooks and that language games and communicative games prevail. The majority of games are intended for practicing vocabulary, speaking and listening. The research also reveals that didactic games encourage all forms of work (individual work as well as pair work and group work).

Exploring stereotypes
Kirsten Hempkin, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: It is widely accepted that the use of humour and jokes in particular brings a number of benefits to the EFL teacher. Not only can jokes help to establish a relaxed learning atmosphere, they can also serve as a context in which to study particular aspects of grammar, vocabulary and culture. However, jokes based on national and regional stereotypes tend to be ignored by EFL teachers, as their potential to cause offense has seen them deemed unsuitable for classroom use. The purpose of this paper is to present a different perspective: it is precisely the rather risky nature of these jokes which makes them ideal for classroom use, particularly in lessons with the specific aim of raising students' cultural awareness through the exploration of stereotypes.
Keywords: EFL classroom, Scottish jokes, Slovene jokes, stereotypes, cultural awareness
