PROJECT “SAY HELLO TO THE WORLD” AS A METHOD OF COMPETENCE DEVELOPMENT IN PRESCHOOL EDUCATION

21/01/2020 07:57:43

Developing children's competences in their preschool age is crucial when preparing for school and for a successful life. Traditional methods of education are no longer enough for modern children. Participation in the international project "Say Hello to the World" has opened up the possibility of using new methods to develop children's abilities. We have been participating in this project since October 2018. We communicate with a mixed group of 19 children aged 4-6 years of the Vrtec Urša Kindergarten in Slovenia. The preschool group of children of Šilutė kindergarten nursery "Žibutė" in Lithuania is also mixed: it includes 20 children, the majority is six years old and the rest are five years old. The children are curious, agile, willing to communicate and be noticed, and they are receptive to technological innovations as it is characteristic of children of such age. It is for these reasons that we were interested in expanding the horizons of cognition of the world of children, using virtual communication methods - correspondence, exchange of photos, video and audio recordings and broadcasts.

FUNCTIONAL KNOWLEDGE THROUGH “FIVE FINGERS” ACTIVITIES

09/01/2020 08:33:05

The system of formal education requires reproducing the contents of different educational subjects while the use of the same content is being ignored. According to Piaget's theory, children can imagine about abstract content at the age of eleven, and the educational programs are adapted to it accordingly. Perhaps Piaget himself would have changed his theory because children today already have abstract thinking skills in the preschool period. This kind of thinking skills helps children to solve logical problems as well as understand their meaning. Reproductive knowledge does not support children to give answers based on their own thinking skills, which in fact would encourage them to form their own opinions and thoughts. We have proved that preschool children are capable of abstract thinking through the activities of five fingers. Read more ...
