The Effects of Project Activities on the Development of Problem Solving Skills and Creativity of Elementary School Children
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 11, issue 2, 2001, Pages 1~21
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of project activities on the development of problem solving skills and creativity of elementary school children. To achieve this purpose, 83 second grade children were sampled in Seoul-City, and they were assigned to experimental group and control group. Two project activities of social studies subject were treated to the experimental group for 4 weeks. And, the ‘Problem Solving Skills Test’ and ‘Creativity Test’were administered to both group children for the pretest and posttest. The collected data were analyzed by t-test to test the research hypothesis. The major findings of this study were as follows: Firstly, there were statistically significant differences between experimental group and control group on the posttest scores of problem solving skills. It showed that the posttest scores of comprehension skills[t(81)＝3.09, p＜.01], practical skills[t(81)＝2.40, p＜.05], and the total score of problem solving skills[t(81)＝4.24, p＜.01] were significantly higher than that of control group. Secondly, there were statistically significant differences between experimental group and control group on the posttest scores of creativity. It showed that the posttest scores of fluency[t(81)＝4.33, p＜.01], originality[t(81)＝2.85, p＜.01], and the total score of creativity[t(81)＝6.43, p＜.01] were significantly higher than that of control group.
A study on the Perfectionism and stress of the Scientifically Gifted Middle school students
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 11, issue 2, 2001, Pages 23~37
The purpose of this study was to explore the differences in perfectionism and stresses between the scientifically gifted middle school students and general students and the relationships between perfectionism types and stresses in these two groups. One hundred and forty three scientifically gifted middle school students and 148 students from K middle school in Seoul were participated in this study as subjects. In case of the gifted group, overall perfectionism and self-oriented perfectionism were higher than the comparative group. However, the socially prescribed perfectionism of the comparative group was higher than the gifted group. The gifted groups felt less stresses than the comparative group. There were correlations between the socially prescribed perfectionism and school life stresses in the gifted students.
Gifted Children′s Perceptions of Scientists
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 11, issue 2, 2001, Pages 39~57
In this study, gifted children's perceptions of scientists were investigated. The subjects were 91 elementary students who were registered in educational program for the gifted. This study was conducted using Draw-A-Scientist-Test (DAST) and questionnaires about the life of scientists. As the results, most scientists were depicted as well-featured and young people. There was a tendency that boys mainly described scientists as male, but girls as female. Many of the students perceived scientists as those who did significant works to try to help other people and pursue the novelty The general perceptions of the gifted on scientists were positive. Majority of students, however, perceived that scientists worked indoors with glassware or chemicals. Relatively, fewer students described books, other materials, and technologies including computer. Many of the students perceived scientists＇work as research or invention. Concerning working pattern, students mainly replied that scientists worked alone. In order to make students＇restricted perceptions enhance for opened and flexible manner, various educational methods need to be implemented.
Standards for Evaluation of a Center for Scientifically Gifted Education
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 11, issue 2, 2001, Pages 59~85
Offered in this paper are standards for evaluation of a center for scientifically gifted education attached to a university. Various methods of study are used, such as review of literature, professional meetings, seminars, and discussion groups. To implement this study we first analyzed the current status and problem of the center through examination of already published research in regard to scientifically gifted education. Based on this analysis, we then identified the direction and framework of evaluation of a center for scientifically gifted education attached to a university that could function as a local education center for the gifted. After this, we designed detailed standards for evaluation for such a center in regard to direction, organization, procedures and methods for selection of a center, curriculum development, and strategies of instruction and evaluation according to the characteristics, phase, and function of the center as identified. Lastly, we presented a framework for evaluation concluding standards and methods for evaluation classified by the domains and times of evaluation we had explored. Plans for evaluation of the center as described here, will provide meaningful suggestions enabling centers for scientifically gifted education to improve the quality of their institutions'educational environment.
Identification and Selection the Mathematically Gifted Child on the Elementary School Level
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 11, issue 2, 2001, Pages 87~106
Identification and selection the mathematically gifted child must be based on it's definition. So, we have to consider not only IQ or high ability in mathematical problem solving, but also mathematical creativity and mathematical task commitment. Furthermore, we must relate our ideas with the programs to develop each student's hidden potential. This study is focused on the discrimination of the candidates who would like to enter the elementary school level mathematics gifted education program. To fulfill this purpose, I considered the criteria, principles, methods, and tools. Identification is not exactly separate from selection and education. So, it is important to have long-term vision and plan to identify the mathematically gifted students.
Selection and Identification of the mathematically gifted children on the middle school
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 11, issue 2, 2001, Pages 107~126
This study is focused on the selection program of mathematical gifted children on the middle school. To fulfill this purpose, I consider the testing program using cyber system. If we use the cyber system, we can survey mathematical play(for example, puzzle) and several mathematical activity of gifted children. Cyber system will be help as a subsidiary selection tool.
가족과 함께하는 창의성 경진대회 평가연구
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 11, issue 2, 2001, Pages 127~150
The upcoming century is a knowledge based society which did not exist before which requires creative ability to solve problems. Therefore, it is necessary to Provide a creative program of problem solution in order to match this global trend The creativity of problem solution means the ability to solve a problem using previous ideas in an advanced way or develop new ideas. Creative education is especially important for infants. Because the young mind is where fresh ideas preside and can frame-work the early stage of life like a blank sheet of paper. The Infant-Early Child Creative Development Institute. as an adhesive institute at Yeungjin College, develops various programs that integrate methods which match current trend in this era and also start the Creative Promotion Test with 2,000 Families for the expansion of creative education from the baseline as an alternative method. The infants tested in the creative test will find ways of problem solution through animation beam projects for their given situation and also discuss the problems with their family members. Through these processes the infant and family members will complete the creative structures to solve the problems using limited materials given by the institute, and the final product will be evaluated as objective results. The final evaluation of the test will also be considered the teamwork of family cooperation and the attitudes of participants as well as the product of problem solution. The criterion of the evaluation is to be considered both a creative way of thinking and creative attitudes. Because the score counts were conducted manually it delayed the selection of awarded students who took the test. Also, we found that some parents have difficulty in accessing information to find the score through homepage from the computer. this Problem might be corrected in the future plan. Like Freud's saying, if human character and exploring attitudes during the early stage of a child, a person's creativity is composed their infant period as their basic foundation. Therefore, the family wh first environment the infant encounters will be treated as a prima when making basic structure. From this viewpoint, this creative test work as a festival of creativity fare with 2,000 families.
