    Herkese Merhaba, Güzel bir sergiye benziyor. Bence hep beraber gidebiliriz. "Sergi Salonları: Salı - Pazar 10:00-18:00, Pazartesi kapalı" diye bir not var. Bu sebeple çalışanları da düşünerek "bir cumartesi günü" bu sergiye beraber gidebileceğimizi düşünüyorum. Evrim Hocam ne diyorsunuz? Kolaylıklar,
  •  
    Not: Sergiye giriş ücretsizdir.
  •  
    Ben sergiye gelmek isterim, Katılıma göre pazar günü de gelebilirim,
  •  
    Dincer, harika bir fikir. Cumartesi gununu ayarlayabiliriz.
  •  
    Cumartesi günü ben de katılabilirim. Haftaiçi ve haftasonları öğleden önce çok sakin oluyormuş, bu da ek bir bilgi..
  •  
    Hangi cumartesi gidildiğini öğrenebilir miyim?
  •  
    Evrim Hocam, Bu cumartesi için sanırım biraz geç kaldık ama 16 Mart yada 23 mart Cumartesi için bir plan yapabiliriz. Size hangisi uygunsa bence o tarihte gidelim, diğer türlü ortak bir karar almak pek mümkün olmuyor geçen seferki "buluşMAmamız"da onu gösterdi bize :)

    The link to the pool that has been prepared for technology based educational materials for FATİH project. In this pool, teachers and students can send several educational materials that they created or they were using in classroom environment. They aim to extend the content with contributions of people who are actively in education in Turkey. However, it is obvious that the project needs professional e-content materials. Videos, pdf's are ok but multimedia based tools are needed.

    Erdem thank you for sharing this website, I haven't heard about this before. While I was teaching to elementary level children I used fenokulu.net a lot as a turkish source. Now I think I can also make use of this one in the future. I also liked the fact that the website contains the pdf formats of "Bilim ve Çocuk". Very rich website indeed :)
  •  
    Erdem, I wonder if there is any section on the website that include resources/guidelines for teachers. E.g. how to integrate those simulations in the classrooms.
  •  
    Canan, I hope it will help, thank you, Hocam, there are just materials in the pool. I downloaded 10th grade math teacher guidelines released by Ministry of Education and started to read some sections. I saw that they offer recommendations like "using a dynamic math software, students do...". However, I don't know if they will handle the learning and usage of such software in in-service trainings. I wish I could bring more information about the system but they have not answered my CV and my sample work yet,

    A funny video about the memorization issue in education. The narrator claims to make a student be graduated in 5 minutes. An exaggerated view to education. However, it is not completely wrong.

Private courses & schools versus government schools - 2 views

  •  
    There must be a balance between private & government schools!
  •  
    Since I started my school education,I have witnessed this problem. Unfortunately it is getting worse. How come a government cannot provide satisfactory education and instruction to its people and children? How dare to push them to pay more and fulfill their own education? Turning the private courses into private schools do not change anything. And as usual, teachers and the students are worst affected from th situation.
  •  
    Changing dershanes to private schools is not a solution to provide better education to society for free. The only change is that you can go to private schools with bursary or half-bursary. It means that they just moderated the money transaction. In addition, they will make teachers take exams throughout their careers which is actually not related to the conversion process. Therefore, the attempt to make dershanes extinct is a starting move that can be supported but these private schools should be converted to public schools in order to provide a high-quality education to all children for free. That is one of the most primary duties of the governments.

    The topic is about charter schools in US. It is not easy to understand what is charter school but it is like a publicly founded school where the "educational experience is qualitatively different". They just try different style of learning. "Charters were originally a progressive movement (called the "small schools" movement) started by University of Massachusetts professor Ray Budde and American Federation of Teachers leader, Al Shanker to explore best practices for education without bureaucracy." (wikipedia: charter school) Quote from the original text "Students taught by teachers with at least five years' experience outperformed students with less experienced teachers, regardless of the type of school attended, but charter school students with inexperienced teachers did significantly worse than students in traditional public schools with less experienced teachers. (The impact of this finding is compounded by the fact that charter schools are twice as likely as traditional public schools to employ inexperienced teachers.)" This means that experienced teachers are better than in experienced ones (Not suprised?) but more importantly it shows us that if you try something new it is better to have an experienced teacher :)

    As far as I understand, if you have a brilliant idea about the ways that the education can be implemented, you can ask for being a charter school. As a charter school, you are free from governmental regulations and obligations. However, your performance is monitored closely. In that schools, new innovative methods are tried out, and apparently inexperienced teachers are not successful at all comparing to traditional ones. This is because the experience. I remember my internship time. As an intern teacher, I had difficulty even implementing techniques that I had been taught throughout my undergraduate career. It was because concrete experiences are much more hard to accomplish that abstract ones. And self-evidently being "concretely experienced" needs time. After years and years in active teaching, teachers naturally can have the ability to integrate innovative methods in their teaching. If the innovation is surprising (like technology integration while experienced teachers might not have enough knowledge), they at least have the ability not to confuse with the new innovation, they can resist and hold on their traditional experiences. New teachers may become confused with undergraduate knowledge and innovations since both of them are still not deeply got used to.

BBC News - State schools 'failing girls who want to study physics' - 2 views

    Science fields do not seem famous any more.

    This issue is a popular topic in physics education field. Studies show that boys are more successful in science courses especially in physics when compared to girls because they feel more confident and think that science is fun. Most probably, these personal beliefs are important determiners when deciding whether or not to attend a course.
  •  
    It is always the same; "girls cannot do science, it is a boy job". Last week, in an undergraduate course at METU, we investigated college students' drawings of scientists. Nearly all of them draw a man scientist, conducting laboratory experiments. Not only physics but also all natural sciences are accepted as a man dominated area, there is no room for women.
  •  
    The important point in this case is that only girls who study for A-level physics are the ones who came from Girls' schools. It means that as the text stated, mix schools have a kind of characteristic that stereotype the physics as if it was boys' area. However, in my opinion, that's not true. Unless a job does not require so much muscles, it can be handled by both males and females. In physics, the brain, intelligence, and the disciplined work is necessary which are highly available in human beings, not just only in males.
