    Jung, Young-hwa | Kyung Hwa Lee | 2018, 8(1) | pp.1~27 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to develop and validate the career education competency measurement scale of elementary school teachers in order to strengthen career education in elementary school. Through the content validity analysis, the career education competency was identified. Items from the first survey were reviewed and revised to confirm as the first preliminary question item. The first preliminary survey was conducted by sampling 330 elementary school teachers in Seoul. Based on the results, it was modified into 13 competencies in six competency groups through item analysis and 44 items were confirmed through exploratory factor analysis (EFA). Second, this study was conducted to identify the validity of the measurement scale for teachers working in Seoul, Gyeonggi and Incheon elementary schools. In this study, data from 827 people were collected and the validity of the measurement model was assessed using Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA). This verified the reliability and validity of the latent variables and measured variables using AMOS 24.0. Finally, 44 measurement scales were developed and validated for the career education competency of elementary school teacher. In this study, the reliable and valid scale for measurement of career education competency for elementary school teachers were developed.

    kim,so.young | Ra, Jongmin | 2018, 8(1) | pp.29~46 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    This study examines the influence of high-school students' recognition of the teacher's characteristics(teacher's morale and teaching ability) and students' satisfaction with school on the student's first-year English & Mathematics achievement scores and the growth rate during the high-school using the data gathered in 2012(wave1), 2013(wave2), 2014(wave3) by Gyeonggi Education Panel Study. In this study, we consider English and Mathematics achievement for three years in high-school as outcome variables and sex, students' degree of comprehension of English and Mathematics class, household income, teachers' characteristics(teacher's morale and teaching ability), and students' satisfaction with school as predictor variables. For this study, we utilize the growth model assigning the student achievement to the level-1 and students' initial scores and the rate of growth to the level-2 using Hierarchical Linear Modeling. According to the analysis of the basic model, the results reveal statistically significant in the initial English and Mathematics achievement scores and variance of the rate of the change. We found significant influence of student variables, the teacher's morale and teaching ability on the first-year English achievement scores. However, the effect of students' satisfaction with school was not statistically significant. The results indicate that only the student's school satiscation rate has statistically significant influences on the growth rate of English scores through the three years of high-school. While the teacher's morale influences significantly on the first graders' initial Mathematics scores, the effect of students' satisfaction with school does not. Through the high-school years, the teacher's teaching ability shows the statistically significant influence on the growth rate of Mathematics scores in a negative way.

    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to explore the most prominent equestrian rider who has been riding for about 40 years in South Korea. In order to successfully achieve the research goals, narrative methodology(biographical study) was used. Using the selective data collection method, the researcher selected a Korean horse riding supervisor, who is considered to be a giant of Korean equestrian field as a research participant. In-depth interviews with the rider were conducted and research materials such as press releases and articles related to the research participant were also collected. The research findings are as follows: First, for the research participant, equestrian learning was the meaning of life for him. Through equestrian learning, the meaning of life was formed, and while riding, he survived today and planned the future. Second, in understanding and interpreting the life of the research participant and in the meaning composition of the life history, equestrian learning made it possible to make a meaningful relationship with the environment surrounding the research participant while making the existence of research participants meaningful. For the research participant, equestrian learning allows understanding and interpretation of the meaning and purpose of life, and serves as a means of realizing the existence value of life.

    The Effect of Integrated Activities using the Five Senses on Improving Children's Creativity

    La, Ji-Suk | Kyung Hwa Lee | 2018, 8(1) | pp.77~95 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to examine whether integrated activities using the five senses are effective in promoting creativity of young children. The subjects of this study were two classes of five-year-old children in an institution in Gwacheon. In the experimental group, integrated activities using the five senses were carried out, and in the control group, the Nuri Curriculum was implemented. The experiment was conducted during Oct. 10~Nov. 16, 2017, for a total of 12 sessions over 6 weeks. In order to investigate the improvement of creativity in young children, K-ICT (Integrated Creativity Test) by Lee K. H.(2014) was used as pre and post test. The results of this study are as follows: Firstly, integrated activities using the five senses were effective in improving language creativity(flexibility, fluency, and originality). Secondly, integrated activities using the five senses were effective in improving figure creativity(addition of new elements, subject, and the overall area of figures). However, impacts on continuity and connectivity, completeness, and unconventionalism of figure creativity were not proven to be effective. Thirdly, integrated activities using the five senses are effective in promoting a creative personality(curiosity, independence, adventure, task attachment, and total creative personality). Finally, effectiveness in promoting integrated creativity was identified. These findings suggest that integrated activities using the five senses are effective in promoting the creativity of young children. Therefore, children's creativity can be developed and promoted if the children participate in play activities that utilize the five senses and blend various methods regardless of theme.

Career adaptability is a readiness for both predictable and unpredictable changes. In this study, based on Social Cognitive Career theory the researcher selected emotional intelligence as an individual variable and social support as an environmental variable, and analyzed the relationship of the influence on career adaptability by these variables and effect of career decision self-efficacy as a mediator. A multiple regression analysis was conducted on 507 data across from the 12 universities.

Second, social support had a statistically significant effect on career adaptability. Third, career decision self-efficacy has a partial mediating effect on emotional intelligence and social support in relation to career adaptability.
