1 THE PARADIGMS OF STUDENTS’ POTENTIAL AND THE EDUCATIONAL CAPITALIZATION OF LIFE LONG LEARNING , Vîrtop Sorin-Avram
The paper reflects on the development of the concept of potential as ap-proached in psychology, education, anthropology, sociology and cultural studies with emphasis on the educational capitalization of it. From bio-psychological traits to intel-ligence, values, attitudes and competences of various degrees and levels, from un-experienced to expert level a whole universe and diversity makes the raw material edu-cation has to approach and shape. The paper has as point of departure key concepts since the emergence of modern psychology to cognitive psychology with reference to representatives such as Alfred Binet, Jean Piaget, Robert J. Sternberg, Howard Gard-ner and examples from educational practice specific to the Romanian educational con-text. The examples reflect upon the application of multiple intelligences theory in a sec-ondary school and the attitude to finality model based on competences, values and attitudes specific to teachers’ training programs (kindergarten and primary school teachers, secondary and high school level) within the Romanian educational system. The present challenges such as actual threats represented by the sharp drop of birth rate, decrease of school population, emigration, functional analphabetism, social, cul-tural and economic transformations since globalization bring to the front line once again the importance of a flexible and dynamic educational system able to respond to ideals and threats. A review of specific literature, application of multiple intelligences theory and the questionnaire method for the attitudes towards competences, values andattitudes of students in study programs for a career in education are the methods that provided data from the field in order to support the paper. Key words: potential, intelligence, training, education, profession.
2 WORK OF A DANCE TEACHER AS A PROCESS OF CREATING A WORK OF ART   , Paula Gorobeca, University of Latvia, Latvia
In the literature of dance and dance pedagogy a main emphasis is on such impor-tant components of dance composition as: time, space, graphical solution and others, but the understanding of artistically creative process, the activity of choreographer’s consciousness or even subconscious before creating a dance and in the process of crea-tion is only mentioned briefly. The authors of this article describe the stages of artisti-cally creative work of a dance teacher as a choreographer and the way these stages lead up to the work of art. The aim of this article is to analyse the artistically creative work of a dance teacher witch results in a work of art – a dance. The aim is carried out in the analysis of literature and on its base promoted evaluation indicators and levels of a dance teacher as a choreographer. The evaluation indicators and levels are appro-bated in expert interviews. The content of approbation results is an important basis for dance teacher practise by influencing and improving the integration of dance creating process in the work of a dance teacher. Often dance teacher do not realize that their professional activity is the creation of an artwork. Teachers are limited to a range of movements in some genres or the requirements of their work place, but above all dance teachers are representatives of art un they have a potential to create new, original artis-tic value. Key words: art of dance, artistically creative work, dance pedagogy.

The aim of this study is to examine the opinions of the parents of elementary school stu-dents in term of advantages and disadvantages of home assignments. The study group of this study consists of parents having students in primary schools in the central districts of Konya in 2017-2018 academic year. 24 students’ parents selected with maximum diversity sampling from the purposive sampling methods were included in the study group. Research data were collected by interview. The researchers prepared the semi-structured interview form for the interviews. The research adopted a qualitative ap-proach exploring a case study and data were analyzed by content analysis technique. The themes obtained as a result of the research; the meaning of homework, the nature of homework, the positive aspects of homework and the negative aspects of homework. Keywords: Student Assignments, Parent Opinions, Case Study, Content Analysis.
4 IMPACTS OF EARLY SELF-STUDY ON MATHEMATIC ACHIEVEMENT OF ADOLESCENTS , Hüseyin Kotaman, Harran University, Turkey
Regular and adequate sleep is an important factor that has impact on performance on cognitive tasks. Investigators assumed that through the evolution process for hundreds of thousands years people sleep when it was dark and woke with sunrise. That is why, our daily rhythm programmed according to sun. Therefore, current study assessed the impact of regular sleep cycle and early self-study on mathematic achievement of high school seniors. Thirteen students six in experimental group and seven in control group completed the study. The experimental group was send to bed at 22.00 pm and they were waked up at 06.00 am. They had self-study time between 06.15-07.45 am. Partici-pants’ mathematic achievements were measured before the intervention and four weeks after the intervention. While control groups did not show any increase, experimental group showed significant increase in mathematic achievement. However, difference between group’s posttest did not reach to statistical significance. Key Words: Sleeping cycle, self-study time, early study, mathematic achievement.
5 COMPARISON OF THE ATTITUDES OF ACQUIRING NUMBER CONCEPT OF THE CHILDREN EXPOSED TO TRADITIONAL AND MONTESSORI METHODS IN PRESCHOOL EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS , 1 Türkan YiÄŸit, Selçuk University, Turkey kolcakturkan@gmail.com Abdülkadir Kabadayı, Necmettin Erbakan University, Turkey akkabadayi@erbakan.edu.tr
For decades, researchers and teachers have investigated the most effective teaching methods in educating children at every levels. This study aims to compare the effectiveness of Montessori and Traditional Teaching Methods to make the preschoolers acquire mathematical concept. Therefore, the preschoolers attending Ihsan Dogramaci Practicing Preschool under the title of Faculty of Vocational Education of Selcuk University are taught “Mathematical Concept” via Montessori and Traditional Teaching Methods to investigate the effectiveness of them. 1 This study was produced from the master thesis accepted in Selcuk University, Institute of Social. Sciences, and was presented in the 14th International Teacher Education for Sustainable Development, Culture and Education The study is planned as an experimental one. The sample is 20 for 4 years old (10 for experimental and 10 for control groups) and 20 for 5 years old ((10 for experi-mental and 10 for control groups), totally 40. At the beginning of the research, 40 preschoolers are given pre-test to display the groups are equal to each other. Following pre-test, the experimental group is taught by Montessori while the control group is taught by Traditional Teaching Methods. Mann-Whitney U test Statistical under the title of Programming for Social Sci-ences SPSS 15.0 version is practiced to analyze the data. At the end of the training, both of the groups are given post test to analyze the outcomes of the methods. At the end of the research, it shows that there is significant differences between experimental and control groups for experimental one. Keywords: Preschool, Montessori Method, Number Concept, Traditional Method
