Continuous advances in technology are causing a generation gap between students and teachers to increase. There are constant breaks in communication, misunderstandings and social conflicts arising during the conduct of a course. Today students have grown up using devices like computers, mobile phones, and video consoles for almost any activity; from studies and work to entertainment or communication. Motivating them with traditional teaching methods such as lectures and written materials is proving to be more difficult daily. In order to increase the motivation of students, better understanding of the subject matter as well as improving collaboration, new form of teaching was required. That is why digital games are being considered to have a promising role in education process. We conducted a study among university students with the purpose of acquiring empirical evidence to support the claim that game design can be used as an effective form of learning. Our method consisted out of monitoring results of participants in course of Computer networks. Experimental group of participants experienced a game design as a new learning tool for teaching, while control group used network programming. Additionally, we invested an effort to measure the effects of different learning approaches with the respect of individual differences in cognitive styles. Initial results provide a good argument for use of game design as a student learning tool. In addition, we reported some influence of cognitive style on effectiveness of using game design. © 2011 TEMPUS Publications. Source

Waste Management and Research | Year: 2016

Sustainable solid waste management needs more dedicated attention in respect of environmental and human health protection. Solid waste containing persistent organic pollutants is of special concern, since persistent organic pollutants are persistent, toxic and of high risk to human health and the environment. The objective of this investigation was to identify critical points in the Serbian system of solid waste and persistent organic pollutants management, to assure the life cycle management of persistent organic pollutants and products containing these chemicals, including prevention and final destruction. Data were collected from the Serbian competent authorities, and led us to identify preventive actions for solid waste management that should reduce or minimise release of persistent organic pollutants into the environment, and to propose actions necessary for persistent organic pollutants solid waste. The adverse impact of persistent organic pollutants is multidimensional. Owing to the lack of treatment or disposal plants for hazardous waste in Serbia, the only option at the moment to manage persistent organic pollutants waste is to keep it in temporary storage and when conditions are created (primarily financial), such waste should be exported for destruction in hazardous waste incinerators. Meanwhile, it needs to be assured that any persistent organic pollutants management activity does not negatively impact recycling flows or disturb progress towards a more circular economy in Serbia. © The Author(s) 2016.

In this paper the impact of political risk on the movement of stock prices in the capital market of the Republic of Serbia is analysed. This is the market with a short history of trading, characterized by a high degree of volatility, with frequent and high jumps in prices. In addition, it is a very narrow and depth lacking market dominated by share trading in that period; the market where the trading in neither treasury, nor corporate bonds was well-developed. All stipulated above indicates a high degree of correlation between the stock price and the current local political events, with the exception of the financial crisis as a global factor. Serbian political shocks are frequent, unpredictable and well defined, which allows us to clearly identify political risk. We have identified the dates/periods when certain jumps in the volatility of the market index return happened, which were then brought into connection with the occurrence of appropriate political news. In that way we were able to quantify the effects of political events on the volatility of return. This is the first paper that deals with the impact of political risk on stock returns in Serbia. Additionally, it is shown that Serbia’s score of political risk in December 2009 was the highest in the Eastern Europe region. In 2015 it is around regional Balkan’s average, and it lies between Albanian and Macedonian score of political risk index. © 2016, Kauno Technologijos Universitetas. All rights reserved. Source

Objective: This study applied the Health Belief Model to investigate factors in the decision by caregivers to vaccinate their children for influenza. Design: Cross-sectional study. Sample and Measurements: Purposive sampling obtained 2,778 useable responses to surveys of 33 public health centers and 40 medical institutions participating in vaccination programs in southern Taiwan. Data were collected using the Caregiver Demographics and Children's Health History Questionnaire, Children's Influenza Vaccination History Questionnaire, and a Health Belief Model Questionnaire. Multiple logistic regression was used to analyze predictors of influenza vaccinations in children. Results: Predictors of vaccination revealed by logistic regression analysis included age, current employment, and residence of the caregiver as well as chronic disease, hospitalization, and influenza histories of the child. Other predictors revealed by the Health Belief Model were perceived susceptibility of the children to influenza, perceived benefits of vaccinations to children, perceived barriers to vaccinations, and cues to action. Eleven items in the model were also significant predictors of vaccination. Conclusions: The survey results can be used to develop strategies for increasing influenza vaccination rates. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Source
