MATTER OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA IN EDUCATION AND SOCIAL COMMUNICATION

Abstract: The article is an attempt to show the role of the electronic media in social communication and in education on the background of the media phenomena, occurring among others, under the influence of globalization and the free flow of ideas and ideologies. On the Polish media market run the following groups: public media, commercial, religious and so-called independent. The public media are essential for the preservation of pluralism, building of a democratic state of law and realization of the public service mission. The current system of financing public media does not provide sufficient funds for their activities, forcing them to fight with the commercial media for acquiring advertising. The consequence of this, is the commercialization of the program and the tendency to tabloidization its content. The public media adequately fulfill the mission of the protection of minors, the disabled, and national and ethnic minorities.

Keywords: education, electronic media, public media, sign language, subscription, television, radio, music education, local government, Catholic Church, Ecumenical Council, portal, company regional, Internet, reality show, globalization, the disabled, identity, value system, determinants, tabloidization

Literature indicates that the sense of coherence is one of the personal resources determining health-related behaviours. It is therefore important to verify the extent to which health behaviours of prospective teachers are determined by their sense of coherence. The aim of the analysis is to verify differences in the level of health behaviour of prospective teachers with low, medium and high sense of coherence. The survey included 157 students at Marie Curie-Sklodowska University. In the research have been used Positive Health Behaviours Scale developed by M. Woynarowska-Sołdan and D. WięziakBiałowolska and A. Antonovsky’s Sense of Coherence Questionnaire adapted by J. Koniarek, B. Dudek and Z. Makowska (Koniarek, Dudek, Makowska 1993). There are statistically significant differences in the health behaviour in all dimensions (nutrition, taking care of the body, relaxation and behaviours connected with psychosocial health, safety and physical activity) among students with low, average and high score of sense of coherence. People with a high level of coherence presented a higher score health behaviour than people with low and average level of coherence. There is a need to search ways of strengthening the sense of coherence and take action to promote health among prospective teachers.

Abstract: The structure of the article is based on the idea of the connection of the theoretical problems’ overview of the andragogy, and against this background, to present the analysis of the empirical results of the study, showing a practical dimension of the contemporary problems of andragogy.

AUTHORITY CRISIS IN THE OPINION OF SECONDARY SCHOOL CHILDREN

Abstract: Man lives and works among people who influence his life. There is also a reverse action, he also affects the other. Separating what we owe ourselves in the educational process, from what directly or indirectly owe to others is a very difficult task. In our biographies indicate mainly affected relatives with whom we share a strong bond, emotional relationships, the closeness physical and psychological, but also those who are recognized in our eyes. Often we reach for the authorities generally recognized, especially when we feel the need to stabilize the moral life. However, today we speak about the authority mostly in the context of the crisis of values. On the one hand, it highlights the enormous influence of authority on young people, and on the other there are tendencies to minimize it, and even eliminate it of social life.

Keywords: authority, contemporary youth, axiological chaos, the authority of the teacher

VOCATION TO PERFORM THE FUNCTION OF FATHER AND MOTHER

Abstract: Vocation is a phenomenon of having specific, relatively stable predisposition to assist in fulfilling a role, task, action or work. The Bible reveals a considerable amount of examples of human vocations to fulfill God’s plans and execution of the tasks. All situations of vocation took place in specific and unusual circumstances. In today’s world, you can also see many beautiful vocations, for example vocation to the role of mother and father. The initial period of the child’s life is the time of the search for the real values in the surrounding world. Parents play a huge role in this issue. One of the many tasks of the mother is to teach the child the love, being the first authority, donate the core values. Father is especially designed to support the mother emotionally, to introduce the child into the outside world and determine the rights and obligations. In today’s world, many parents choose to go abroad, leaving at home lonely and unhappy children. The question is whether the growing wave of emigration will not prevent the mission of filling the role of mother and father?

DIAGNOSIS OF WORKPLACE AND POSSIBILITY OF ITS IMPROVEMENT

Abstract: The article presents the diagnosis of social workers’ workplaces and assistant family based on J. R. R. G. Hackman and Oldham’s concept, characterized by five main dimensions of work: the possibility of maximum use of the employee’s own skills and abilities, the creation of conditions to make the task comprehensive, the importance of the task, the level of autonomy during the execution of tasks and access to information about the results of the work. It is the basis to take actions to redesign the work, making it more attractive, less routine and more efficient. With regard to social welfare centers, the work should be organized so that it meets the requirements postulated by this concept, and also served to develop valuable characteristics of the workplace.

Keywords: diagnosis of workplaces, work, social worker, family assistant, the dimensions of work, occupation
