Gulyaikhina E.S. - Modernization of School Education as an Essential Condition for Social Progress: Teaching Innovations Offered by Johann Pestalozzi and Joseph Neef pp. 1-21


Abstract: The article is devoted to special features of the American national education at the beginning of the XIXth century that created the unique socio-cultural environment for further development of education as one of the triggers of successful social development and led to the modification of Johann Pestalozzi's system of education by his student Joseph Neef. The most important part of Joseph Neef's teaching heritage is his methodological development of training and education issues. Republicanism principles were one of the most important dominants in his theory and practice of teaching as well.  In her research the author of the article has used the systems approach and the method of scientific analysis which allowed to describe Joseph Neef's theory of teaching as the realization of Johann Pestalozzi's ideas as well as the republicanism and democracy principles. The author of the article concludes that conceptual provisions of the theory of nature-aligned education allowed Joseph Neef to adapt the theory to the Amerian socio-cultural environment. As a result, Johann Pestalozzi's heritage was enriched with the innovative version of Pestalozzianism which, in its turn, created favorable conditions for the development of American economy.

Gatiatullina E.R. - Is the Root of Learning Always Bitter? On the Question of Teachers Personality in Pedagogical Process pp. 20-44


Abstract: Is a pedagogue always a pedagogue? This question is not so easy as it may look at first sight. What personal and professional qualities allow us to call a person a pedagogue?

How to make the learning process is not difficult and tiring, but easy and joyful? The article is dedicated to pedagogue’s role in educational process.

The article deals with the principal components of pedagogical culture, ways and means of increasing efficiency of pedagogical process on the basis of pedagogue’s personal self-perfection.

Özerbaş M., Almazbekova A. - Determining teachers' perception of organizational silence pp. 22-38


Abstract: The overall goal of this study is to examine organizational silence in terms of various variables according to the opinion of teachers. 111 teachers working in the 2020-2021 academic year participated in this study. Clustering and simple random sampling methods were used in sampling. To collect data, the study used the "Scale of Organizational Silence for Teachers" developed by Kahvechi and Demirtas (2013). The validity analysis was used to verify the validity of the scale. The age, gender, marital status of teachers, work experience at the school where they work, and their overall work experience were assessed using descriptive statistics. The collected data were processed, analyzed and interpreted in the SPSS program in such a way as to offer theoretical or practical solutions to the research problem and suggestions were made. The average value and standard deviation of the responses to the statements were determined by compiling descriptive statistics. Teachers' perception of the "Scale of Organizational Silence" as a whole turned out to be moderate. This indicates that teachers are reluctant to express their opinions on organizational issues, and their participation in decision-making is not provided by officials, and therefore they sometimes prefer to remain silent. When the statements for which teachers gave the highest score are considered, it is clear that teachers and administrators working at the school contribute, teachers easily adapt to changes, and the values of society and the values of the school are similar. When considering the average with the lowest scores of teachers, it is clear that mistakes are not perceived with understanding, control at school is strict, teachers' successes are not encouraged, and the school administration is not interested in the public life of teachers.
Faritov A.T. - Certain aspects of classification and implementation of quest games in school pp. 25-32


Abstract: The subject of this research is the theoretical-methodological specificity and peculiarities of practical implementation of quest games technology in the school educational process.

The article also considers various approaches and bases of the classification of quests, and demonstrates a number of original versions of classification. The proposed milestone plan of the development of educational quest is illustrated by a specific example of designing a quest game “Interstellar Journey” (educational fields of “mathematics and informatics”, “physics”, and “economics”). The tasks faced by a modern comprehensive school stirred interest of pedagogical community towards interactive and active teaching methods. Game educational technologies, developed on the basis of activity, competence, and contextual approaches allow to not only increase students’ motivation and cognitive interest to a specific discipline, but also ensure the achievement of interdisciplinary results in accordance with the requirements of the Federal Educational Standard. Quest games may be efficiently applied in educational process of a comprehensive school; however, it demands significant efforts of a pedagogue on their development and delivery.
