Abstract:Electro-technical assembly kits used for educational purposes at elementary schools have a number of positive effects. They complement teaching and at the same time they constitute the subject of teaching. In the light of the rapid global development of information technology, a growing need for connecting electro-technical kits with computers can be expected. These new practical demands also stimulate the development pedagogical theory. The present paper treats the practical aspects of classroom application of electro-technical assembly kits. It also tries to develop the theoretical background by defining the conditions that every electro-technical assembly kits has to meet in order to be in accord with the educational goals and, more importantly, with the pedagogical theory. The paper examines the usage of electro-technical assembly kits from the perspective of general technical education. The effectiveness of the training is variable, which is very difficult to measure, influenced by a variety of input components-students, teachers, school curricula, the school's internal and external factors. Generally, it is necessary to assess the degree of effectiveness of the functioning of the training to carry out a comparison of the rate variables describing the inputs with the same intensity of quantities characterizing the outputs. This article deals with the research of evaluation of the extent of the effectiveness of the functioning of the education process in the educational field of "Man and the World of Work" (use of) the electrical engineering building. Research to check whether the electrical construction kits influence on teaching and that their use reflects the results of the pupils. The basic objectives were established-to carry out an experiment and determine the effectiveness of teaching. The objects of research were pupils and subject of research is their knowledge and understanding.
Keywords: Electrical construction kits, research of pedagogy, education, effectiveness, project training, technical didactic, laboratory.
