Abstract: Information-communication technologies (ICT) are a part of our world and we use them every day. They represent an important source of information about us and others, as well as about local and world events. Besides that, ICT can also be very attractive for pre-school children, who acquaint with them very quickly. This article presents advantages and disadvantages of ICT usage for a four-year-old pre-school child and its potential consequences for the child's development. The data was collected with the help of 130 parents. They were asked to fill out a questionnaire and share their opinions about their four-year-old children's usage of ICT at home. We found out that in the case of four-year-old children the usage of ICT has its advantages and disadvantages, and that the consequences of its usage (positive and negative) would be approximately the same.

Abstract: Being a teacher is becoming a growingly demanding job, as the swift development of modern technologies is undoubtedly expanding the required competence framework. Different information and communication technologies have become part of the necessary competencies, as teachers are educators of the Y generation, which is characterised by its members using the computer in each aspect of their lives. The use of the computer is specific for each individual field of instruction and as such cannot be directly compared. This article presents the results of a survey into how the field of study influences the use of ICT and the computer in student teachers. The sample covered fourth grade students of diff erent fields of study (teacher training programmes): students of natural, technical and computer sciences, students of social sciences and humanities and students of the department of elementary education. Our research has shown that students of all three training programmes often use the computer in their everyday life but slightly less often for study purposes. Students of natural, technical and computer science reported about the use of educational portals more often than students of the other two fields of study did, while there were also differences in the use of individual portals among students of individual fields of study. Our research has further shown that students of natural, technical and computer science provided the most positive feedback about the availability of computers at the faculty, their performance, software, internet access at the faculty and internet access in their town of study.

E-learning within the framework of the Czech university systemMilan Klement

, 2013, review article
Abstract: During the last few years, e-learning has become an integral part of tertiary education systems, not only within the framework of blended, but, to an increasingly larger extent, also of full-time study modes, accredited and implemented at Czech universities. However, along with its large-scale deployment, a number of problems have emerged, which resulted in the formulation of new research hypotheses. Among the most important ones are those regarding the influence of e-learning on the quality of education, the efficient ways of motivating and mobilizing students, and the creation and development of particular competences. There are many external, as well as internal influencing factors, acting more or less covertly, to a greater or lesser intensity. It is highly desirable to identify, describe, analyze, and minimize or maximize their influence in order to prevent them from having a massive negative impact, conditioned by fashion trends, on the quality of tertiary education.
