The Pedagogical Problems of Making the Educational Aim More Specific

Sara Kakuk

Abstract


When one discusses the dissemination of the educational aims and tasks on a theoretical, as well as a methodological, level, it is important to highlight that pedagogy, being the science of education that it is, finds solutions in differing directions. One is theoretical, and the other is the realization of the sum of the demands of working in the field of education. More often than not, educational aims come from the basic demands of society. They can also be taken from documents of state, laws, resolutions etc. Sometimes, they can be set too wide and can be too general. This is thought to be the reason of insufficient clarity of the educational aim when we discuss making the educational aim more specific and realizing it in the educational process itself. This is where we find the need to further develop the educational aim and make it more specific in order to make it possible to realize for a practical educational purpose and to realize the educational goals of the person we are trying to educate. This process of specification relates to two levels. One is the scientifically-theoretical, and the other is a practical one. This paper, therefore, deals with ways of making the educational aim more specific and realizing it in the educational process. The paper also highlights the importance of basing the educational aim in a scientific, as well as a theoretical, approach and making it more specific in order to achieve it as fully as possible in the educational process. The paper presents a curriculum approach to the realization of the educational aim and its specification. By doing so, it creates the basis for acting in a scientific-theoretical way, as well as in a practical one.
