THE USE OF THE TRAFFIC PLAYGROUND IN THE PRE-GRADUAL TEACHING PRACTICE

The accident rate is particularly affected by the increasing traffic density. Constantly we discuss how to prevent the accidents. Among different causes of accidents the human factor is most risky. The education and training play an irreplaceable role in the prevention of the risk behavior in traffic. This training must start from the childhood and must be present at primary school. The teachers must be prepared for such lessons. Moreover, it should be emphasized that the future teachers will also be responsible for the pupils during the school trips, excursions, and cultural activities when pupils are moving in the traffic. The traffic playground is suitable place for realisation of teaching practice in the study program for future teacher.

The paper describes some research results from the course traffic education at the Faculty of Education, Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. Placing of students’ pedagogical practice on the traffic playground bring good results both in the understanding of key competences and in terms of motivation. Undergraduate students have the opportunity to work with primary school pupils on the traffic playground in co-operation with the officers of the municipal police. In such a way the students deepen the knowledge and skills related to teaching the safety in the traffic. Students assess their activities on the traffic playground from the pedagogical and psychological perspective in the follow-up seminar.

From our survey we believe that the use of the traffic playground in the pre-gradual teaching practice bring some un-substitutable moments in the traffic safety education.
