THE IMPACT OF PERSONALITY ON SPORTING SUCCESS: RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COACHING AND SPORTS

Bireylerin spor branşlarını seçerken kendi kişilik özelliklerine göre seçim yapmaları spordaki başarılarını arttıracaktır. Bu bağlamda projemizin amacı sporcuların ve antrenörlerin branşlarını seçerken hangi faktörleri dikkate aldıklarını araştırmaktır. Örneklem olarak 14-18 yaş aralığındaki 27 sporcu ve 16 antrenör seçilmiştir. Seçilen sporcuların branşları; Basketbol, Kayak, Yüzme, Su Topu, Voleybol, Tenis, Futbol, Kick Boks, Triatlon ve Badminton, antrenörlerin branşları ise; Kick-box, Basketbol, Yüzme ve Voleyboldur. Sporcu ve antrenörlere araştırmacıların hazırlamış olduğu Kişisel Bilgi Formu ve Antrenör-Sporcu Envanteri uygulanmıştır. Form ve envanterler bireysel görüşme yoluyla araştırmacılar tarafından yapılmıştır. Antrenör-sporcu envanterinden toplanan bilgiler tanımlayıcı istatistik yöntemiyle analiz edilerek yakınlık, bağlılık ve tamamlayıcılık alt boyutlarına ayrılmıştır. Kişisel Bilgi Formundan alınan verilere göre katılımcıların %58,1’i spor branşlarını seçerken sevdiği ya da ilgisi ve yeteneği olduğunu düşündüğü için, %18,6’sı rastgele, %13,9’u aile ve arkadaş yönlendirmesiyle, %9,3’ü de vücut gelişimi ve sağlık açısından doğru seçim olacağını düşünmüşlerdir. Katılımcıların verdiği cevaplara bakıldığında yaptıkları sporda başarı sağlamaları özellikle düzenli ve sürekli antrenman yapmalarına dayanmaktadır. Dolayısıyla düzenli ve sürekli yapılan antrenmanın yanına bir de temelde kişiliğe uygun alan seçimi eklediğimizde mutlu ve başarılı sporcuların sayısı artacaktır. Öyle ki bireyler yapmak istedikleri sporu seçmeden önce kişilik testleri yapılıp çıkan sonuca göre kendilerine uygun branşa karar vermeleri elde edecekleri başarıyı artıracağı sonucuna varılmıştır.

CORRELATION OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS’S SKILLS AND THEIR ACADEMIC SUCESS

Bu projenin ortaya çıkışındaki en önemli etkenler, ülkemizde lise düzeyine eğitim gören öğrencilerin matematik dersine karşı beslediği önyargı ve bu önyargıdan kaynaklanan zorlanma ve başarısızlık kaygısıdır. Lise düzeyindeki öğrencilerin kanıt ve muhakeme becerilerinin gelişmesi, matematiği bir konsept olarak tamamıyla daha iyi ve kapsamlı anlamalarını sağlamakla beraber başarılarında da bariz bir artışa ön ayak olacaktır. Asıl amacımız bahsettiğimiz ve benzeri sorunların kaynağını bulup olabildiğince düşük seviyeye indirgemektir. Ulaştığımız verileri elde etmek için çalışma grubumuz üzerinde anket ve gözlem gibi çalışma grubumuzun kendilerini ifade edecekleri veri toplama yollarına başvurulmuştur. Elde ettiğimiz bulgular ise, bizi bu tip sorunların eğitimde yetersizlik, kişisel özgüvensizlk vb. gibi farklı sebeplerden kaynaklanmış olabileceğini düşünmeye itmektedir. Kanaatimizce, farklı kaynaklı sorunlara farklı şekilerde müdahale etmek, hem öğrenci hem de çevresi için alınabilicek en verimli sonuçları beraberinde getirecektir. Matematiğin soyut ve soyut kavramlarını idrad edebilen öğrenci nüfusunun artmasıyla bahsi geçen kaygı azalacak, başarı ve matematik adına olası gelişmeler doğal olarak artış gösterecektir.

Democracy in schools

The project aims to find out if these democratic structures in schools are present, are they working actively and question students whether these structures improve their overall efficiency. It also aims to understand what students think about these types of structures, collect their suggestions and their complaints.

Accessibility of higher education

The Students of the Tel Aviv Youth University – a project which enables periphery high-school students to take academic courses on the university – have explored the future society. Representing the young generation perspective, they pointed out dilemmas and issues that they’ll present as a challenge to the decision-makers, locally and globally.

The first phase was a journey of learning and researching various problems related to the current reality and the future of the Israeli society, through tours and lectures in a variety of subjects.Based on their “learning journey” and the attempt to explore different aspects of life in the future, the students have realized that education plays an important role in. They claimed that today there are many solutions that overcome distance problems and accessibility of higher education, but there is not enough publicity for them. They decided to try to find a solution.

During the second phase of the activity, the students received practical tools that enabled them to learn different ways to express their opinions, engage large audiences and reach decision makers like lectures about social activity, lobbying, media workshops and more.With that knowledge on their mind, the young students wrote down a brief for their campaign: they explained the issue, its relevance to the future society, and the ways that they were willing to act. Then they started to build a site about higher education programs which are available for youth in Israel.

The children of the refugees

 

The Students of the Tel Aviv Youth University – a project which enables periphery high-school students to take academic courses on the university – have explored the future society. Representing the young generation perspective, they pointed out dilemmas and issues that they’ll present as a challenge to the decision-makers, locally and globally.

The first phase was a journey of learning and researching various problems related to the current reality and the future of the Israeli society, through tours and lectures in a variety of subjects.

As part of the research, using a “futures wheel” method, the student assumed that robots would do the routine jobs and therefore there won’t be enough jobs left for migrants, who have inappropriate skills. Therefore, the children of the refugees should have the same education as the Israelis, otherwise they will be pushed into a life of poverty and even crime. Following these assumptions, the group chose to deal with the issue of education for refugee children.

During the second phase of the activity, the students received practical tools that enabled them to learn different ways to express their opinions, engage large audiences and reach decision makers like lectures about social activity, lobbying, media workshops and more.

With that knowledge on their mind, the young students wrote down a brief for their campaign: they explained the issue, its relevance to the future society, and the ways that they were willing to act.

 Then they started to film a short commercial to express their message. You can watch the result here:

LEAVE THE TABLET ENGAGE WITH KNITTING

Today since children come across technological appliances like tablets, mobile phones, computer in early age they have serious negative impacts related to physical, psychological and social problems besides values. If children busy themselves with these technological tools for a long time, they become unhappy, impatient, aggressive, intolerable, and ill-tempered.

. Knitting as one of traditional handcrafts was realized practically with the chosen 5th grade students in order to bring to light our human values that are passing into oblivion. Since knitting has really many positive impacts on people. Children who are knitting feel happy, peaceful, calm and relieved; besides during and after knitting activity their concentration level increases and they feel proud, also they become mutually more tolerable and sensible so their valuable attitudes as it has been emphasized above develop. Students also produce two kinds of products as scarves, pencil boxes with this activity. They felt proud and enjoyed via presenting these products that they produced as hand work to their friends from other classes so they internalized the amazing feeling of giving a gift to someone as one of our marvelous values.  

We believe if we initiate these kinds of projects to be implemented in our schools, we will be able to succeed to make our students distract serious negative impacts of technology on children so we can enrich our students with crucial values all over.

Inclusion and gender

The students of The Summer Youth University were taking the summer semester during very interesting days; the LGBT community was protesting – demanding equal surrogacy rights for gay men. Tens of thousands of men and women came to Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square to protest and back the community – and the issue became prominent in Israeli society.  The young students felt the need to talk about inclusion.

The main themes of the discussion:

Questions:

What will the future look like, from social and the technological perspective?
How will we experience the gender and inclusion problem in our future?
How will our ideas solve this problem in the future?

Things to think about:

 

Raising awareness by using TV and internet series and content.
Campaign that must “conquer the hearts of the people”
Education and inclusion
Why are we being indoctrinated to use stereotypes from an early age?
Mass media representation
Surrogacy rights – what is the meaning and why does it matter
Breaking the social stigmas

Why are certain names fitting only to one gender

The refugees problem and the future

The students of Tel Aviv Summer University took a tour to the south of Tel Aviv city – where a lot of disadvantaged communities live. They learned about problems of the refugee’, the newcomers to the neighborhood, and of the host population.

Using the future wheel method, which they have practiced while being led by Dr. Tal Soffer, head of the unit for technology and society foresight (TSF) at Tel Aviv University, they tried to understand what would be the expression of the problem in the future.

The discussion started with the understanding that developments in transportation have led to a situation in which migration is sometimes easier, and the developments in communications and consumerism have led to raising awareness among populations to the gap between them and the developed countries. All of these are increasing the desire to emigrate. Then, they wrote the headline “Refugees – The Young Generation”, and the arrows from the headline point to the words “Poverty”, “Connection to Israelis”, “Crime”, “Overcrowding”, “Employment” and “Education”. The word “Overcrowding” was associated with the word “Higher Education” (in the context of innovative housing solutions) and the word “Employment” was linked to the words “Robots” and “Unemployment”.

Then, they figured out that the solution is education, so they had written the word “Education” and the arrows pointed to the words: “Budget,” “Socialization”, “Language”, “Computer Science”, “Motivation”, “Exact sciences”. They also examined various aspects of the question of socialization.

Segregation versus understanding

Like some of their colleagues, the members of this team (young high school students, who came to Tel Aviv university in order to take the summer semester), also chose to deal with the idea of “The 4 Israeli tribes” – the four main cultural groups that Israel is disintegrating into: the ultra-Orthodox Jews, the national religious Jewish sector, the Arab sector and the secular Jewish sector. The young students came from different sectors, from cities and villages in the social and geographic periphery of Israel.

Trying to find a way to deliver the message that “we are different but we are also the same”, the students wanted to figure out what are the various implications of this issue, nowadays and in the future.

They have used a future wheel to analyze the different aspects of the segregation between Arabs and Jews.

The future wheel of the group expresses their will to focus on education, thus you can see that they wrote “The 4 Israeli Tribes” and the word was connecting the phrase to “education”. Then, they wrote the branches: Different agenda, teachers, awareness, language, knowledge about the other’s culture, and segregation.

They also wrote their initial idea about creating an app that is aiming to encourage informal meetings between sectors, based on common interests.

The socio-economic gap

On their educational tour from the poverty of south Tel Aviv to the high-tech and the most developed and rich part of the city, the students of the Tel Aviv Youth University – a project which enables periphery high-school students to have an academical semester in the university – decided to deal with the social-economic gap.
