Interview as a research method in teaching: a case study

Academy of Technical - Art Professional Studies, Belgrade, Serbia
Interview, teacher, teaching, forms of work, students


Although the application of modern technologies in the education system of Serbia shows signs of progress in the last few years, it is still not at a satisfactory level. Hence the demands for improvement of learning methods and means are imposed.In order to determine to what extent each form of work is represented in the teaching of informatics and computer science, we conducted an interview with teachers of informatics and computer science in elementary schools in the territory of the cities of Belgrade and Novi Sad. The sample includes 19 teachers. The teachers answered 23 questions, which we divided into five groups.The research was conducted in two phases in May 2022 and June 2023. Contemporary conditions require a change in the content and methods of organizing the education process, and the transformation of the traditional school into a research unit ready to accept innovations.
