Emergency Remote Teaching During the COVID-19 Epidemic in Slovene Primary Schools From the Perspective of Teachers : master's thesisCiril Kolar
, 2022, magistrsko delo
Opis: The emergence of COVID-19 has heavily impacted specific sectors around the globe, including the education sector. What followed were global school closures. This thesis aims to identify which methods and strategies are the most effective in emergency remote teaching (ERT) in primary schools to determine a suitable work plan for other instances of emergency remote teaching. Firstly, we present definitions of ERT and legislation in Slovenia and discuss the importance of digital competence in today's digital society. We employed a questionnaire and a semi-structured interview to explore the thoughts and opinions of primary school teachers of English in Slovenia. Our respondents did not have much experience with remote teaching; the predominant challenge they faced during this period was a lack of time for preparation to teach remotely, followed by a lack of knowledge about online/remote teaching strategies and remote communication tools—the teachers prepared for this shift predominantly by connecting with colleagues. The teachers used video conferencing tools the most. Their biggest challenge was creating content for online spaces. The critical lesson they learned from this experience was an improvement of their digital skills. As for the strategies that should be employed in future instances of ERT, they suggested training programs for teachers. Advice for future cases of ERT from the surveyed teachers is simple: do not panic, do not cause yourself too much stress, and teach calmly. The interviews with teachers further emphasize the importance of ICT and digital competence among students and teachers for quality teaching. Both interviewed teachers call for ICT learning tools and the development of digital competency, which they think is of utmost importance.

Opis: Investigations of evolution knowledge and acceptance and their relation are central to evolution edu‑
cation research. Ambiguous results in this feld of study demonstrate a variety of measuring issues, for instance difer‑
ently theorized constructs, or a lack of standardized methods, especially for cross-country comparisons. In particular,
meaningful comparisons across European countries, with their varying cultural backgrounds and education systems,
are rare, often include only few countries, and lack standardization. To address these defcits, we conducted a stand‑
ardized European survey, on 9200 frst-year university students in 26 European countries utilizing a validated, com‑
prehensive questionnaire, the “Evolution Education Questionnaire”, to assess evolution acceptance and knowledge, as
well as infuencing factors on evolution acceptance.

Communication Challenges in Inclusive Education Faced by Deaf and Non-deaf PeopleOmar Gamal
Opis: This is a consolidated report on the work done in Intellectual Output One: Communication Challenges for the Advancing Inclusive Education Through International Sign - InSign project. This report combines and summarises the results obtained in national reports done by project partners from Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Portugal, and Slovenia. This document includes information on national sign languages, support for deaf people and their learning possibilities in different countries. In one section, we will review the status of International Sign in all the partner countries. We have also performed surveys done primarily with students to measure how they perceive deaf people, how they understand sign language and the difficulties deaf face in the education system. In this document, we analyse the data collected across the project partners. Each partner has also performed a guided interview with those most familiar with the deaf community (deaf themselves, educators, interpreters etc.) to help better understand the circumstances and answer some of the questions difficult to find in literature. The Consolidated Report summarises interview findings from national reports with the main takeaways.

English teaching update available: a study on online EFL educators : magistrsko deloAndreja Benković
, 2021, magistrsko delo
Opis: The master’s thesis explores the north-Croatian teachers’ readiness for teaching online. With technology slowly, but steadily, taking over everyday actions, it was only a matter of time when it would take over education. With March 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, technology was the safest way of conducting lessons and was instantaneously implemented into education. This master’s thesis aims to determine how English teachers in the three northernmost Croatian counties managed the new challenge. Specifically, it tests factors that influenced their e-readiness through 7 hypotheses. The research is based on questionnaire results – the questionnaire was sent to 86 primary schools, 30 secondary schools and 11 private language schools in Međimurje county, Varaždin county and Koprivnica-Križevci county via email with a request to forward it to their English teachers. Analysing responses with quantitative research methods, the study showed that factors such as age, gender and professional development influence teachers’ e-readiness, while there were no differences among the three counties. Furthermore, the results revealed that the teachers generally feel ready for conducting online lessons, although Gay’s questionnaire on Carribean teachers’ online teaching readiness proved otherwise. Interestingly, some of the teachers did have online teaching experience prior to the pandemic, which along with organized professional development offered to them, helped them feel ready to teach online. Ultimately, teachers are better prepared to teach online than they were prior to the pandemic; however, there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Opis: (AFE) is a type of schooling, continually planning, organizing, and improving a system of adaptations included in a school's educational process and infrastructure. These adaptations are implemented voluntarily and in a benevolent, systematic, comprehensive, and transparent manner, with the explicit aim to help athletes engage in sport and simultaneously achieve goals and competencies set out in the educational program and thus Athlete friendly education has the following attributes: adaptations; rather than being discrete, these adaptations constitute a system; daptations are organized and managed by school management; institutions introduce the adaptations voluntarily; adaptations are based on pre-existing legal frameworks and internal institutional regulations; institutions need to possess adequate competencies or experience; they need to be "trustworthy," in other words.
AFE accreditation is voluntary. The principle of voluntary certification is very similar to the "brand" philosophy. The brand also contains a "promise."

Approaches to Teaching Political Correctness to Slovene Primary School StudentsDavid Najžer
, 2021, magistrsko delo
Opis: The M.A. thesis focuses on political correctness as a concept in today's society and seeks practical approaches to teaching its linguistic aspects as part of English classes in the primary school. The thesis consists of an overview of the history of political correctness, its elements, its implementation in educational institutions; an overview of a similar implementation in Slovenia (Faculty of Arts at the University of Ljubljana) and its reaction; and an overview of theoretical and practical approaches to teaching political correctness. In the practical section, Touchstone, a series of English as a foreign language course books, written by a Slovene author, are reviewed, examples of content related to political correctness and the content that may potentially be perceived as politically incorrect are presented and analyzed.
In the empirical section, a questionnaire was conducted. The participants were teachers of English from primary and secondary schools and English student teachers. Based on the results, we attempted to determine the general attitude towards political correctness and teaching political corrects in English as a foreign language classes; experiences participants have with teaching topics related to political correctness; and the level of importance participants believe political correctness has in peer and class relations. The conclusion is based on the findings from the theoretical, practical and empirical segment and suggestions on how political correctness could be implemented in English as a foreign language classes are provided.
