Beyhekim Development and Technology Academy, which is one of the out-of-school learning environments of Selçuklu Municipality, contributes to the training of well-equipped and visionary individuals of the future and to the discovery of new talents with the trainings it offers. The facility, which has not been officially opened yet, but continues its activities without slowing down, was introduced to the local and national press representatives operating in Konya by the Mayor of Selçuklu Ahmet Pekyatımcı. As part of the information tour, the activities carried out were explained in detail to the media representatives, who visited the classrooms in the workshops one by one. The facility, which offers all the possibilities of modern technology, received full marks from the members of the press.
President Pekyatımcı said, “Our youth, children and adults are doing different works in 13 different workshops”
Expressing that one of the important working areas of Selçuklu Municipality is out-of-school learning environments, Selçuklu Mayor Ahmet Pekyatımcı said, “In this sense, we have been carrying out important works for 3 years. At first, we realized the Ahmet Keleşoğlu Art Design Workshop. Then our Sille Nature School started to work, then Hatice Hatun Neighborhood Complex and Traffic Education Park became a link in this chain. Today, we visited Beyhekim Development and Technology Academy together with our members of the press. Out-of-school learning environments are very important to us. Because our children and young people not only receive academic education and achieve academic success, but also make different studies related to their personal development and personal skills, and at first they discover themselves, their interests, they need to reveal their abilities and develop themselves in this direction. In this sense, we think that these out-of-school learning environments are very important.
“24 of our schools participate in workshops during the term”
Stating that training is given in 13 different workshops at Beyhekim Development and Technology Academy, President Pekyatımcı said, “Our youth, children and adults come here and carry out different works. In our workshops here, our young people have the opportunity to express and develop themselves in many different fields, from music to UAV mechatronics, to GIS, to fashion design. At this point, our expert teachers make our children work in their fields, provide information and training. Together with our District Directorate of National Education, we carry out a multi-disciplinary planning and organization. Currently, 24 of our schools are participating in workshops here at our Development and Technology Academy during this term. Over a thousand students come here on different days during the term and participate in these workshops. We include not only our students but also our adult groups in workshops here. In line with their wishes and demands, we also offer our adult groups an opportunity to express and develop themselves in different workshops in the field they want, with both evening programs and weekend programs. We want our young people, students and children to be happy and we think that it is very important for their future that they can express themselves in the best and most accurate way. In this sense, the activities and studies they do in out-of-school learning environments guide them in which areas they should develop themselves in the future. Today, while we were wandering upstairs with our members of the press, we saw our children in the photography workshop. Before our members of the press, they were competing with each other to take different shots with their cameras. Likewise, we saw how the children in our technology design workshop produced different technological products there. We saw how happy the children in our music workshop felt by playing the guitar. Again, in our history workshop, we saw how children gained awareness of history. Again, in our doll production workshop, we saw how our children from secondary school enjoyed producing different products. At this point, we, our children and young people, are working here in terms of their future vision and in terms of determining their future goals, We think that studies in out-of-school learning environments are very important. In this sense, we carry out these studies in a very harmonious and productive cooperation with our District Directorate of National Education. That's why I would like to thank all his team in the person of our District Director of National Education. We have been continuing the Seljuk Valuable Education Program for 10 years, and out-of-school learning environments within the scope of the Seljuk Values Education Program is a new study we have created for 3 years. However, we continue this work by spreading it to almost all our schools in a very efficient way with the contributions of our District Directorate of National Education. They have great efforts and efforts. That's why I would like to thank our district national education director and his team individually. To our teachers who work here, I would also like to thank our teachers and our teams working in the whole municipality. Hopefully, we plan to continue this work by improving it," he said.
