Languages of publication
The penmanship of our instructional team has given birth to a specifically developed short multimedia animated movie (Cow Affairs) – as a new resource in learning and an alternative to the traditional approach to teaching in schools in Serbia. Its content is designed for pupils of the first grade and for the school subject The World Around Us, for the lesson on Deriving Benefits from Cattle – Cow. Since the pupils of Year 1 in Serbia are the most overwhelmed pupils in Europe, the roots of which are in the old-fashioned technologies, books being the domineering resource, overwhelming goals and tasks for nonfunctional skills and old syllabus, we aim to innovate the approach to teaching and learning and to bring about dynamic changes in the process of learning of our children. The described model here of a class that implements animated movies tends to innovate the traditional way of teaching, to modernize it, to make it attractive, engaging and encouraging for our Year 1 pupils. The results published abroad on Computer Assisted Learning with Animated Movies among first graders show that IT has a great supremacy over the traditional approaches to teaching. The described animated movie will only make for the Introduction to a series of animated movies with the follow-up quizzes for on-line (or DVD) learning in primary schools. The described animated movie will show the extent and depth of our research and teachers’ questionnaire answers before its immediate use in the classroom.
W artykule przedstawiona została propozycja, specjalnie opracowanego na potrzeby nauczania wczesnoszkolnego, filmu animowanego oraz scenariusz zajęć z wykorzystaniem tego filmu. Dotychczas w Serbii dominuje tradycyjne podejście do nauczania-uczenia się. Odbywa się ono głównie z wykorzystaniem tradycyjnych podręczników szkolnych. Opisana tu propozycja jest próbą połączenia tradycyjnych metod nauczania z nowoczesnymi technologiami multimedialnymi i stanowi nowy sposób modelowania procesu dydaktycznego na poziomie nauczania wczesnoszkolnego w Serbii.
