Certified Adult Educators′ Attitudes towards Continuing Education
Review of European Studies , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/res.v2n1p61
Abstract: It is evident that nowadays continuing education is emerged as a necessity to educators of any kind and especially to those for adults. Educators have recognised the importance of continuing education and they really motivate and teach their students how to be engaged in continuing education programs. But are they really interested themselves to be involved in programs of continuing education? In order to answer this question, we have decided to investigate attitudes of certified adult educators toward continuing education. The purpose of this study is to identify attitudes of the 220 certified educators of Vocational Training Centres (K.E.K.) in the prefecture of Thessaloniki and their approach to different learning styles and their general interest towards continuing education. More specifically, in the present research Confirmatory factor analysis was applied aiming mainly at the construction of a model that estimate educators’ opinions in regard to continuing education and its elements. The structural model that resulted from the analysis of data confirms the existence of five factors relative to value of: continuing education, certification of adult educators, use of different teaching methods, learner’s personal satisfaction and finally, attendance in adult education programs. Key words: continuing education, adult educator, attitudes, professional development

International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The main objective of this particular research is to investigate the training needs of the administrative staff in a particular institution of public education in Greece, the Organisation of Vocational Education and Training (O.E.E.K.). More specifically, the training needs of the eleven headmasters and the eleven vice-headmasters who hold the administrative positions in the eleven public Vocational Training Institutes (IEKs) in the prefecture of Thessaloniki in Greece are being examined from the angle they themselves perceive them. The findings of the research concern two categories of issues of training programmes: issues of programme’s enrichment and new skills issues.

Giavrimis Panagiotis,Papastamatis Adamantios,Valkanos Efthymios,Anastasiou Adamos
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.

International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: A study was carried out to identify the training needs of psychiatric nursing staff working in acute wards. Which type of learning, which training needs and how want the training to be delivered. Qualification and accreditation were also examined. Questionnaires were given to 70 nurses working in the 5 acute wards of Psychiatric Hospital of Thessaloniki, Greece. The key findings were that most participants wanted to be trained in practical nursing skills in every day practice. The most preferable training thematic was: a) Management of violent and aggressive behavior, b) Risk assessment, c) The suicidal patient, d) Clinical assessment skills, e) The patient with psychosis and f) Communication skills. Accreditation was very important and they wanted to gain professional qualification. The empirical study highlighted the need for further training, in the frames of Continuing Education. The findings could be of great interest for The National Center of Public Administration, as useful informative material, according to the real training needs of the specific group.
Attention Problems and Learning Disabilities in Young Offenders in Detention in Greece  [PDF]
Katerina Maniadaki, Efthymios Kakouros
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2011.21009
Abstract: Background: The relationship between learning disabilities and juvenile delinquency is widely established. However, the nature of learning disabilities and the pathway through which they are linked to delinquency are not well understood yet. The contribution of third variables, such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) seems as a promising field of research. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the schooling history of young offenders detained in Greek Correctional Centers in order to examine the extent to which learning disabilities may co-exist with psychosocial adversity and/or specific learning disabilities, in particular, attention problems. Method: The Greek version of the Youth Self Report (YSR), the Self-Perception Profile for Children (SPPC) and a questionnaire constructed by the authors were used in the study. Results: Schooling his- tory of the young offenders was characterized by low attendance, high levels of dropouts, grade retention and academic failure. High co-existence of both psychosocial adversity and attention problems, indicating possible presence of ADHD, was found as well. Conclusions: These findings underline the need for routine ADHD screening at schools for the identification and treatment of those children who are at particular risk to get in- volved in criminal activities. Moreover, the need for the identification of incarcerated youth with ADHD and/or learning disabilities as well as prison staff training are discussed.

Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: We provide an asymptotic estimate for the number of rational points of bounded height on a non-singular conic over the rationals. The estimate is uniform in the coefficients of the underlying quadratic form.
Rational Points on the Fermat Cubic Surface

Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: We prove a lower bound that agrees with Manin's prediction for the number of rational points of bounded height on the Fermat cubic surface. As an application we provide a simple counterexample to Manin's conjecture over the rationals.
La politique scientifique dans l’Empire ottoman
Efthymios Nicola?dis
Bulletin du Centre de recherche du chateau de Versailles , 2011, DOI: 10.4000/crcv.11502
Abstract: Dès qu’il conquit Constantinople en 1453, Mehmed le Conquérant appela des savants byzantins pour étudier la géographie, science qui sert à faire la guerre, et mena une politique d’éducation scientifique à l’image de la tradition arabe. Mais, très vite, l’Empire ottoman abandonna toute politique d’éducation scientifique et en même temps toute politique de développement des sciences. Le dernier vestige d’une telle velléité fut la fondation de l’Observatoire d’Istanbul à la fin du xvie siècle, suivie de sa destruction totale. Les sciences furent désormais délaissées au millet chrétien de l’Empire, c’est-à-dire les communautés chrétiennes orthodoxes placées sous la responsabilité du patriarche de Constantinople. Contrairement à l’Europe chrétienne, l’Empire ottoman ne fondera pas d’université ni d’Académie des sciences. Cette absence de politique envers les sciences, considérée par certains historiens comme une politique négative, fera sentir ses effets lors du développement scientifique et technologique de l’Europe au début du xviiie siècle. L’Empire ottoman, se voyant dépassé, appelle des experts occidentaux à la fin du xviiie siècle pour au moins fonder des écoles militaires. L’effort de modernisation entrepris au xixe siècle avec la politique des Tanzimat inaugure timidement une politique scientifique cohérente. La première université ottomane fut fondée à la fin du xixe siècle, mais entre temps une politique de bourses se mit en place pour envoyer des sujets ottomans faire des études scientifiques à l’étranger. Cet effort fut cependant trop tardif pour faire face au démantèlement de l’Empire, facilité par son retard scientifique et technologique.

Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: We prove that any smooth cubic surface defined over any number field satisfies the lower bound predicted by Manin's conjecture possibly after an extension of small degree.
