Abstract: The study of teachers’ preparation for the introduction of pedagogical technologies is given due attention. However, the analysis of scientific sources, including the pedagogical studies, enables us to affirm that such aspect as the future informatics teachers’ preparation for the introduction of personality-oriented technologies of teaching is insufficiently studied theoretically and methodologically. The given article reviews the grounds of development and the peculiarities of realization in the educational process of the experimental technology of the future informatics teachers’ preparation for the introduction of personality-oriented technologies of teaching, which consists of such main elements: aim motivational, content theoretical, practical laboratory and analytical evaluation.

Review of European Studies , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/res.v3n1p2
Abstract: This paper is part of a research project which aims to identify the teachers’ educational needs and the implementation of Informatics and Communication Technologies (ICT) and its impact on teaching, learning and cognitive processes as well as the students’ behavioural adaptation. In the main research, 118 primary school teachers from the island of Lesvos in Greece participated, 36 of them (30.5%) were male and 82 (69.5%) were female teachers. The questionnaire used in this research consists of seven issue units. Teachers who took part in the research were not totally satisfied with the training that they had already received but on the other hand, they were positive in the idea of continuous training, whereas there are differentiations among demographic units concerning the characteristics of training.
Pedagogical beliefs and attitudes of computer science teachers in Greece

Themes in Science and Technology Education , 2011,
Abstract: Pedagogical beliefs and attitudes significantly determine the professional skills and practice of teachers. Many professional development programs for teachers aim to the elaboration of the pedagogical knowledge in order to improve teaching quality. This paper presents the study of pedagogical beliefs of computer science teachers in Greece. The research data reveal that computer science teachers usually hold mixed traditional and constructivist theories which are generally irrelevant to either demographic factors or their pedagogical training. In some cases statistically significant correlations to the educational level or the total teaching service are detected. The results of the study set out suggestions concerning the design of pedagogical training programs.
The Elicitation of Prospective EFL Teachers’ Computer Anxiety and Attitudes
International Online Journal of Educational Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: This study aimed at investigating the relationship between computer anxiety and computer attitude and examining the effects of background characteristics on prospective EFL teachers’ computer anxiety and computer attitude. Computer Anxiety Scale (CARS), designed by Heinssen, Glass & Knight (1987) and Computer Attitude Scale (CAS), developed by Loyd & Gressard (1985) and modified by Yuen & Ma (2001) were administered to 70 prospective EFL teachers. Descriptive results indicated that prospective EFL teachers had relatively moderate scores in CARS (M=3.20; SD=.35729) and the sub-scales of CAS, computer confidence (M=3.02; SD= .43951), computer liking (M=3.17; SD= .47379) and computer usefulness (M=3.35; SD= .67647). Although a significant correlation was found between computer anxiety and computer liking (r = .35, n=70, p< 0.01), no significant correlation was found between computer anxiety and computer confidence (r = .19, n=70, p 0.01) and between computer anxiety and computer usefulness (r = .22, n=70, p 0.01). In the study, age, year of study, computer ownership and degree of access to computers were not found to be significant correlates of computer anxiety and computer attitude. While gender and the CAS subscale ‘‘usefulness (r = .28, n=70, p< 0.05) and CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) and CAS subscale ‘‘liking (r = 23, n=70, p< 0.05) were found to be positively correlated, computer courses taken previously and the CAS subscale ‘‘liking (r = -.24, n=70, p< 0.05) and computer experience and the CAS subscale ‘‘confidence (r = -.30, n=70, p< 0.01) were found to be negatively correlated.

Journal of Automatic Control , 2009, DOI: 10.2298/jac0901031n
Abstract: The paper proposes a method of an effective distance learning of architecture and computer organization. The proposed method is based on a software system that is possible to be applied in any course in this field. Within this system students are enabled to observe simulation of already created computer systems. The system provides creation and simulation of switch systems, too.

Abstract: Recently, a new competency-based description of the good teacher was developed and introduced in all the Departments of Postgraduate Medical Education for Family Physicians in the Netherlands. We compared the views reflected in the new description with the views of teachers who were required to adopt the new framework.Qualitative study. We interviewed teachers in two Departments of Postgraduate Medical Education for Family Physicians in the Netherlands. The transcripts of the interviews were analysed independently by two researchers, who coded and categorised relevant fragments until consensus was reached on six themes. We investigated to what extent these themes matched the new description.Comparing the teachers' views with the concepts described in the new competency-based framework is like looking into two mirrors that reflect clearly dissimilar images. At least two of the themes we found are important in relation to the implementation of new educational methods: the teachers' identification and organisational culture. The latter plays an important role in the development of teachers' ideas about good teaching.The main finding of this study is the key role played by the teachers' feelings regarding their professional identity and by the local teaching culture in shaping teachers' views and expectations regarding their work. This suggests that in implementing a new teaching framework and in faculty development programmes, careful attention should be paid to teachers' existing identification model and the culture that fostered it.In times of change in medical education, teachers are often asked to adapt to a new concept of what being a good teacher includes [1,2]. These new concepts represent what is considered to be best educational practice and are often developed by experts outside the departments where the changes are to be implemented. The concepts are based on an analysis of the teachers' tasks and/or educational theory and operationalized in competency profi
Education policies, school organization and the work of teachers

Abstract: Big changes in the state′s role in public education policies have occurred throughoutthe last decades by the action of transnational and supranational entities. An increasing process of subordination of education to economic imperatives in late capitalism and to entrepreneurial theories of school organization and leadership hasfollowed. Some dimensions of what is called by the author the managerialist canonand the hyper-bureaucratization of schools are analyzed with reference to international tendencies and also to the most recent Portuguese reform of the management system of state schools. Possible impacts of the political and organization changes introduced are suggested for future research, mainly concerning the working process of teachers and the tendencies towards competitiveness, deprofessionalization, subordination and alienation.
