LEARNING AND USING FOREIGN LANGUAGES AT A DIDACTIC FARMSimona Eder
, 2015, diplomsko delo
Opis: Learning and using foreign languages in a natural environment, in real-life situations at the didactic farm (at the Eder farm) is the theme of this diploma thesis. Nowadays primary schools are more and more aware of teaching different real-life skills outside the school’s own four walls. They do not expect their pupils to learn just for good grades, they want them to learn and prepare for possible situations in their future life.
The first part of the thesis presents the history of teaching and learning outside the classroom, defines the meaning of the term "didactic farm" and presents the Eder didactic farm, its history, ethnological collection, offers, target groups, possible types of visits and topics.
On the basis of four possible foreign language courses during the visits to the didactic farm the results, advantages and disadvantages of teaching foreign language at the didactic farm, responses of children, teachers’ opinions and possibilities of further developments are presented. The hypotheses have all been confirmed, with the remark, that the children have fewer difficulties coping with new ways of FL learning and using then teachers.
The primary aim of the thesis was to find possible improvements for the integration of didactic farms and schools in the local or wider school district. Another goal was to invite them to learn and use foreign languages at a didactic farm that provides appropriate offers, attractive and diverse themes and contributes to the greater prevalence of such foreign language learning in natural environment.

Opis: Since the transport causes about 26% of global CO2 emissions, the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) is becoming increasingly necessary. To achieve this objective, several approaches were adopted, like for example the employment of alternative sustainable technologies, or the enforcement of changes in driving skills. In contrast with this kind of approaches, an interesting approach is to reduce the vehicle miles of travel (VMT). In this paper, the concept of VMT reduction based on a heuristic optimization approach is introduced. The suitability of this concept has been tested for the School Bus Routing Problem (SBRP). Working mechanisms of the adopted heuristic optimization algorithms are briefly explained. As can be seen from the results, the optimization of bus stops, bus routes and driving schedules can significantly reduce the amount of VMT and consequently the amount of CO2 emissions.

Opis: Possible responses to the extremely complex and delicate question of the influence that exercises on the development of a child as a unique personality, on the child's psycho-social development and on the education of a child generally may be provided by serious research of a cohort sequential design, either in research programmes in the field of educational sciences or of other social disciplines. The present paper confronts some dilemmas of the modern world. Particularly those between the educational values, families and schools and education supplied (imposed) by virtual reality that promotes the social standardization of behaviour and the perception of values and of the world around us. The aggressiveness of the mass media in presenting as and without an often results in a virtual life for a child, with virtual friends, education and even virtual families. In the time of developing technology, an important question arises: how to deal with such a situation. Do we direct young people to carefully select from what modern virtual reality has to offer and how do we do that?
