Sažetak
Recently, sustainability as a term has been brought into focus in all segments of human life, and in many countries its implementation has been supported by certain political acts. In the Strategy for Sustainable Development of the Republic of Croatia (2009), education for sustainable development has a significant role and, according to the Strategy, the principles of sustainable development should not be integrated only in formal education but also in other forms of learning. Rieckmann (2012) emphasises the importance of schools and universities in the process of generating new knowledge, raising awareness of sustainability and developing appropriate competences for life and work in a sustainable society. In addition, he points out the institutional responsibility for creating positive attitudes towards sustainability issues among pupils and students, so that they could become a significant factor in the sustainable future. Although being neglected, information and communication technology (ICT) and mathematics can serve as a basis for raising students’ social awareness and accountability (Makrakis & Kostoulas-Makrakis, 2005). Keeping that in mind, educators should try to use them as a means for bridging the gap between the prescribed curriculum and sustainability issues. Based on the five elements of sustainability listed by Souter et al. (2010), and with the focus on ICT and mathematics in the context of education for sustainable development, this research has multiple goals. It aims at exploring how familiar the use of ICT in all dimensions of sustainable development is to pre-service teachers. It also explores how much they had to know in the previous levels of education about sustainability services that have been so far implemented in Croatian society, especially in education system, and how much they use them in daily life. Furthermore, in order to empower elementary school children for sustainable development, it explores pre-service teachers’ opinion regarding the necessity of elementary school children’s education on the specific ICT and sustainability service. Moreover, it looks into pre-service teachers’ attitudes about the role of ICT and mathematics in education for sustainable development. The results based on a survey conducted with the pre- service teachers at the Faculty of Education in Osijek (Croatia) will be presented on this poster. The preliminary results suggest that pre-service teachers lack the background knowledge and experience which would enable them to understand the concept of sustainable development and to successfully integrate ICT and mathematics into education for the long-lasting sustainability
