In our research, we examined the development of complex problem-solving skills among 1st-year teachers training undergraduate students in engineering at Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania (N = 73). The research aimed to determine whether knowledge transfer works among students in interpreting life-like, specific problems. A worksheet was used as a measuring tool. In compiling it, we applied the concept that tasks include computer-transferable algorithms (such as cryptography process, parallel computing, and constraints), and their solution does not require any special IT knowledge, only structured and logical thinking. The research reports on the extent to which teacher training students have acquired knowledge and problem-solving strategies related to certain disciplines. The obtained data shed light on the fact that the lack of an interdisciplinary approach hinders the recognition of the connections between the different fields of education. Keywords: Computational thinking; problem-solving skills; Teaching education.

It is known that the foundations of learning in the cultural and educational process are laid in the preschool period. In this period, children acquire information on many different subjects by interacting with their environment in every field. Suggestions, intuitions, and experiences lie in the formation of this knowledge. Children, who learn mainly through intuition, gain experiences thanks to the mutual symbolization they make with objects. In this process, they try to make sense of what they perceive according to their experiences. In this study, it was aimed to improve the mathematical skills of preschool children with the use of creative drama techniques, based on the strategies suggested in the instructional design model of Seels and Glasgow, and accordingly, the teaching processes were designed with sessions and activities that included two classroom processes and discussed within the scope of the literature. Keywords: Creative drama; game; instructional design (ID); mathematical skills.

This study aims to conduct a literature review to explore the justification for including programming and coding in K–12 curricula. Additionally, it considers the value of teaching computational thinking and programming principles, pedagogical strategies, and the advantages and drawbacks of teaching programming to young students. Most studies acknowledge that programming courses effectively motivate and engage students and achieve learning objectives. However, research reveals that teachers lack the skills to teach programming, and even seasoned educators may find it challenging to develop and implement the necessary pedagogical strategies. Researchers recommend using frameworks based on sociocultural theories of learning, increased resources and training, student-centered instruction, and lowering teacher workload, which has led various nations to re-evaluate their curricula. Finally, the review concludes by suggesting the need for more research on how teaching and learning programming affects learning in other academic disciplines. Keywords: Computer education, computational thinking, pedagogical strategies, programming, K–12 curricula;

One of the biggest issues in education today is classroom management, particularly in inclusive environments where students' demands are diverse. The literature suggests using management strategies and evidence-based approaches to manage classrooms effectively. This study aims to investigate how teachers implement evidence-based classroom management techniques in inclusive primary school settings. The data of the research were collected through an online questionnaire and semi-structured interviews. Within the parameters of the study, 103 participants who met the criteria for purposive sampling completed an online questionnaire, and 10 participants took part in semi-structured interviews. The results from the online questionnaire reveal that ‘clearly defining the classroom rules’ is the most often employed evidence-based classroom management technique by teachers. After a descriptive analysis of the data from the semi-structured views. Eleven themes and 35 sub-themes were identified. The findings were discussed and compared with the literature. Recommendations were presented. Keywords: Classroom management, evidence-based approach, inclusive education, integration, management strategies teacher behaviors;

Web-based language learning materials have been among the preferred materials to be used by English language instructors since they are plentiful, straightforwardly accessed, user-friendly, and most importantly, are provided for free. This study investigates the effects of learning the simple perfect tense translation in three different English translation classes which applied three different modes of teaching, which were the traditional face-to-face method, integrative method, and web-based learning method. Furthermore, it is aimed to examine the effects of proficiency level in each mode of teaching and also to determine the best method for learning translation. The research is a quantitative study and the design is a pre-and post-test quasi-experimental design. The pretest-posttest study involved 87, third-year undergraduate students, that is 52 advanced and 35 intermediate students. All groups were exposed to one mode of teaching only for 4 weeks. The results indicated that there is a significant difference in both tests for all modes used. Keywords: Web-based language learning, translation proficiency, traditional method, integrative method, web-based learning method;

Economics as a subject is regarded as the bedrock of all management and social science-based disciplines. The persistently low level of students’ achievement in economics in senior secondary school examinations has become a thing of great concern to all stakeholders. This study examined students’ performance in the Senior Secondary School economics qualifying examination in Kano State and the influence of sex and schools' nature on their performances in economics. An ex-post facto design of descriptive research was adopted for the study. A proforma was used to collect data from a sample of 300 students, selected using a stratified random sampling procedure from the secondary schools in Kano State, Nigeria. The data were analysed using descriptive statistics and an independent-sample t-test to test the hypotheses. Overall results showed that students performed above average and a significant gender difference exists in economics performance. Similarly, there is no significant difference in students’ performance with respect to the schools' nature (boarding and day schools).
