Одним із результатів навчання має бути готовність учнів до використання інформаційно-комунікаційних технологій, здатність працювати з інформацією. Особливістю професійної діяльності вчителя початкових класів є те, що саме він допомагає учням адаптуватися до освітнього середовища, реалізує розвиваючу функцію навчання в умовах інформаційно-комунікаційного педагогічного середовища школи. Відповідно, основним завданням учителя є впровадження у викладацьку практику різних підходів та методів навчання молодших школярів, інтеграція в освітній процес сучасних інформаційно-комунікаційних технологій.</p> <p>Активне формування інформаційно-комунікаційного педагогічного середовища Нової школи, упровадження у навчальний процес різноманітних програмних та технічних засобів, технологій пошуку, збору, аналізу та обробки інформації, перехід в умовах пандемії до дистанційного навчання, за швидкістю значно перевищує швидкість формування готовності вчителя до використання нових підходів та технологій. Тим самим підтверджується актуальність та необхідність дослідження методів та засобів формування інформаційної компетентності вчителя початкової школи в умовах інформаційно-комунікаційного педагогічного середовища. Одним із етапів вирішення даної проблеми має бути оцінка рівня інформаційної компетентності студентів, які навчаються за спеціальністю Початкова освіта, перегляд навчальних програм, планів, навчально-методичного забезпечення, упровадження в освітній та науково-дослідний процес сучасних методів, форм та засобів навчання.</p> <p>Відповідно, основним завданням даної статті є висвітлення основних проблем формування інформаційної компетентності вчителя початкової школи в умовах інформаційно-комунікаційного педагогічного середовища, дослідження рівня інформаційної компетентності студентів 1-5 курсів спеціальності 013 Початкова освіта, огляд та аналіз існуючих інструментів та підходів до організації освітнього процесу в умовах дистанційного навчання, як таких, що можуть бути інтегровані в освітній процес, та, у подальшому, використані майбутніми вчителями у практичній діяльності.</p> 2021-04-13T14:47:09+03:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Information Technologies in Education (ITE) RESEACHING THE ASPECTS OF INTERACTION BETWEEN EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS IN THE DISTANCE LEARNING SYSTEM 2021-08-09T14:12:41+03:00 Olena Rosinska Halyna Horbenko Oksana Zhuravska <p>The research studies the inquiries of students and educators in Institute of Journalism of Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University due to the change of an activity format during COVID-19 quarantine measures. 62 professors, 302 bachelors and masters have been inquired, as well as the participants’ activity of internal distance learning system and the level of technical possibilities of access to it, utilization rate of platforms and services have been under analysis to receive the data. 1/3 of the respondents consider distance learning to be a critical need of that period, and more than 2/3 admit that it as a perspective learning form. 40% of educators regularly use distant technologies in their work and believe that the main problem is absence of face-to-face communication with students. More than 90% of students have an easy access to distance learning; moreover, poor Internet connection was specified as a problem for its implementation. Up to 70% of respondents consider the use of different learning platforms to be productive, a significant amount of them are video conference services. The monitoring provides grounds for further study of psychological needs for face-to-face communication, since the data received from the respondents demonstrate different approaches to this issue.</p> 2021-03-01T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) ENGAGING FUTURE SHIP ENGINEERS IN DISTANCE STEM EDUCATION 2021-08-09T14:09:23+03:00 Olena Kononova Alona Yurzhenko <p>The research summarizes the modern approaches to STEM education for future ship engineers: the problem-based learning activities, not standard or typical designs and problems, the integration of STEM subjects, the introduction of innovation to teaching methods in relation to each subject, the multidisciplinary approach to STEM education that implies the integrative environment for teaching STEM subjects. It is highlighted that in the era of industrialization, literacy and work skills were important, but in the post-industrial era, the technological aspects of youth development have come to the fore. It has been also determined that awakening a creative approach, interest in a comprehensive perception of the subject of study, critical thinking, STEAM teachers give students more than just knowledge - they also give them skills, a taste for knowledge and work, a desire to immerse themselves in self-development, to love the learning process itself. The study presents the content-related and structural characteristics of STEM targets, approximate educational outcomes, content, final assessment, focus areas (problem solving situation), technological curriculum design methods provided by STEM techniques. The research describes the hands-on experience of involving teachers in creating STEM projects for ship engineers in distance STEM education. It is concluded that it is impossible to verestimate the prospect of using information technology in the implementation of STEM programs. Another conclusion is that graduates of educational institutions that actively use information technology in medicine, construction, chemistry, physics, biotechnology and other fields of science are becoming more and more in demand.</p> 2021-03-01T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) THE OPEN SCIENCE PLATFORM AND APPLICATION OF ITS COMPONENTS IN THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS 2021-08-09T14:10:54+03:00 Maiia Marienko Mariya Shyshkina <p>The article considers the concept of open science and open data in the context of educational applications. As the Roadmap for Ukraine's integration into the European Research Area was approved in 2018, some steps have already been taken to use the ideas of open science.&nbsp; In some educational establishments, the learning content includes issues and topics related to open data or open science. The current state of the art and the experience of using open science systems in educational process in Ukraine is undertaken. Such experience will contribute to the further creation and development of a national scientific infrastructure, for the promotion and providing free access to any state-funded research. However, the analysis showed that currently there is lack of methods (or methodological systems) of using open science services to train educators and teachers in particular for work in scientific lyceums. A survey of educators "Using open science services to pose and resolve the research problem" was conducted, which showed that most respondents are primarily interested in the materials of their colleagues from professional journals mainly not widely accessed. Only a quarter of respondents know what open science is. It has been found that open access services (including scientific materials) are tools for using the ideas of open science. As an example, the open access service arXiv is considered: the basics of working with this service and the features of its use are described. Services for collaborative work on educational projects can also be considered as open science services, as most of them have the tools for further, public disclosure of the results. An example is the review of Discord Messenger, which recently claims to be used in cloud-based systems, contains tools that are cloud-based and easily integrated with other services (or systems) through open source. In addition, there are tools available to create open communities (servers) for further connection of any user. The European Open Science C;oud (EOSC) deserves special attention, as it is a rather powerful platform for the&nbsp; use both by&nbsp; scientists and educators. The advisable ways of application of its components in the educational process are outlined.</p> 2021-03-01T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) THE APPLICATION OF MOODLE PLATFORM FUNCTIONS TO DEVELOP FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEXICAL COMPETENCY 2021-08-09T14:16:28+03:00 Olena Stryzhak Ganna Krapivnyk <p><em>The paper discusses the features of developing foreign language lexical competency while applying the Moodle platform. The development of the foreign language lexical competency is considered as a case study of teaching the Service Marketing course to full-time master’s degree students at Simon Kuznets Kharkiv National University of Economics. The case shows the distance educational course of Service marketing, including the description of its content and structural elements that promote professional competencies. The research proves the need to apply information communication technologies provided by Moodle functionality in developing foreign language lexical competency. The elements of the Moodle information platform that enable to form student’s professional terminology minimum are described. </em><em>Lexical competency implies not only clarifying etymology and semantics of a language sign but also studying the specifics of its use depending on the content. Therefore, it is offered to educators to apply foreign language materials and develop professional lexical competency. This process is exemplified by the analysis of a television commercial in English and the evaluation of the advert efficiency. The commercial evaluation procedure includes its viewing and identifying the means and methods of its impact on the consumer’s consciousness, which involves learning and analyzing language-related information. It was found out that, in addition to the development of course-related professional competencies, watching and analyzing video materials encourages the development of speaking skills and enriches students’ vocabulary. </em><em>The benefits and drawbacks of using the Moodle environment for lectures, seminars, students’ individual work, academic performance and knowledge assessment are laid out.</em></p> 2021-03-01T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) USE OF VIDEO COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES TO SUPPORT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES OF SCIENTISTS AND SCIENTIFIC AND PEDAGOGICAL WORKERS 2021-08-09T14:17:47+03:00 Vitaliy Tkachenko <p><em>The paper reviews and analyzes the domestic and foreign experience of using video communication technologies for carrying out scientific researches</em><em>. </em><em>It was determined</em><em>,</em><em> that video telephony is usually used for communication</em><em>, holding session, solving organization problems; video </em><em>broadcasting </em><em>is </em><em>used for distance education</em><em>; </em><em>videoconference is used for scientific and practical activities, work at a distance of scientific groups, working groups</em><em>. </em><em>The main components of the general model of the implementation of video communication technologies </em><em>such </em><em>as a WEB-oriented video conferencing system are singled out, that based on the analysis of foreign and domestic experience regarding the use of video communication technologies to support the research activities of scientific and pedagogical workers</em><em>. </em><em>The main components of research activity of scientific and scientific and pedagogical workers, which need support of video communication technologies are determined</em><em> there</em><em>, namely: scientific-pedagogical, scientific-organizational, scientific-technical, experimental. </em><em>It was revealed that foreign researchers focus on video communication technologies, in particular videoconferences, which provide significant support to the research activities of scientific and pedagogical workers.

The article considers the professional functions, typical tasks and skills that must be possessed by future math teachers, specifies the main components of the professional activity of the future math teacher with the use of ICT in continuing education. Continuing education is seen as a new integrative entity, which is characterized by dynamism, flexibility, continuity and is to merge the basic and further preparation of man for work and social activities in a single holistic educational process. The math teacher’s professional activity directly depends on the preparation of the future math teacher in the context of continuing education and provides targeted activities for students to acquire knowledge and master the skills and abilities that will be used to stimulate student personality. Speaking about the use of ICT in the professional activities of math teachers, we need to pay attention to improving the training of future math teachers, namely the diverse development of personality through ICT, which provides a high degree of work activity, mobility and adaptability to rapidly changing working conditions. Changing the forms of teaching future math teachers is moving towards blended learning and involves the use of both traditional forms of higher mathematics (lectures, workshops, seminars, consultations, independent work, etc.) and innovative (interactive video lectures, distributed comp. computer-oriented practical works, webinars, mobile consultations, etc., which provide an opportunity to combine formal and non-formal learning). Thus, readiness for pedagogical activity is considered as result and purpose of professional training and professional competence is considered not only as result of professional training.</p> 2021-03-01T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) PREPARING THE FUTURE EDUCATOR TO THE CREATION OF AUGMENTED REALITY EXCURSIONS IN LOCAL EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS 2021-09-07T13:41:31+03:00 Veronika Denysenko Nataliia Borysenko Natalia Sydorenko Iryna Hrytsenko <p>The article highlights the peculiarities of future teachers'&nbsp;preparation for the organization of augmented reality virtual excursions in educational institutions.

The Knewton platform, developed by the company of the same name (USA), became one of the first adaptive learning platforms in the world and is now the undisputed world leader in this context. It provides continuous adaptability, constantly accumulating data about each pupil / student and properly building an individual learning trajectory, forming appropriate recommendations in real time. Knewton itself does not develop ready-made courses, but provides the platform, which offers developers certain algorithms for adapting educational content. The theoretical basis of the Knewton platform is a number of models and approaches, including: theory of test problems (item response theory), probabilistic graph models (probabilistic graphical models), hierarchical agglomerative clustering. Among the Knewton tools that provide personalization of learning, we consider such as knowledge graph (knowledge graph), continuous reinforcement, learning curves (learning curves), student learning profile (student learning profile), network effects. The main advantages of Knewton for pupils / students include: instant "feedback", collaboration, gamification. The advantages for teachers are meeting the various needs of pupils / students, monitoring the progress of the whole class, monitoring the progress of an individual student, improving the content of educational programs. General recommendations for the development of an adaptive course based on Knewton (on the example of the Alta program) are given. Models of potential application of the Knewton platform are characterized: "face-to-face", "rotation", "flex", "online laboratory", "self-blend", "online user". Given that the practical experience of using adaptive learning systems, both in Ukraine and in the world as a whole, is quite insignificant, we believe that it is important to consider the theoretical foundations of these technologies, a critical assessment of their advantages and disadvantages, as well as prospects for implementation and use. In the future, we plan to develop recommendations for domestic teachers to create training courses based on the Knewton platform.</p> 2020-08-10T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) FORMATION OF DIGITAL AND RESEARCH COMPETENCES IN THE TRAINING OF IT PROFESSIONALS IN A MODERN UNIVERSITY 2021-07-30T13:52:54+03:00 Mykhaylo Sherman Yaroslava Samchynska Mariya Sikelinda Alona Yurzhenko <p>The article is devoted to the formation of digital and research competences of future IT professionals by applying complex practice-oriented tasks on the example of the educational topic "Development of chatbots using free online designers".

QR-codes allow you to get instant access to any information from the Internet using smartphones. With the involvement of QR-codes you can diversify the learning process and increase interest as students, and students to study the subject. At the same time, the use of QR codes is associated with a number of problems that should be considered when implementing this technology in the educational process. Regarding high school, the researchers found that two-dimensional barcodes can be used at different stages of learning: explanation, generalization, systematization or verification of the studied material, during the assessment of students' academic achievements, etc., and during such work traditional and interactive forms of organization of educational activities can be combined. The purpose of the pedagogical experiment by the author of this article was to find out the effectiveness of the systematic application of QR - technology in the process of professional training of future teachers of mathematics in the context of the competence approach. During the teaching of the discipline "School course of mathematics and methods of its teaching" during the semester in experimental groups during lectures and practical classes offered QR - links to electronic textbooks, reference information, presentations, training programs, interesting facts, training simulators, training tests, scientific articles, methodical developments, lesson outlines, etc. In addition, the author has developed a QR - a dictionary of concepts of general methods of teaching mathematics, and each student - QR - a dictionary of concepts on a particular topic of the course of methods of teaching algebra;<br>together, future teachers prepared and conducted a QR - quest for high school students in order to increase interest in learning mathematics. The result of this work was to increase the success and interest of students in experimental groups in the study of the professional discipline, compared with the success of students in control groups, as well as more effective formation of some professional competencies.</p> 2020-07-26T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) CREATION AND DESIGN OF TESTS BY ICT 2021-04-28T13:43:45+03:00 Т.

Marienko <p>The article presents an analysis of the results of the ascertaining stage of the pedagogical experiment "Designing a cloud-oriented methodological system of training teachers of natural and mathematical subjects to work in a scientific lyceum." An analysis of recent research and publications has shown that scholars have sufficiently considered the problem of reforming teacher training courses. A separate issue is revealed in Ukrainian research on the design of cloud-based systems, but the proposed systems relate exclusively to certain specialties, or are entirely scientific. Currently, there is no cloud-based system that would become a tool in the further preparation of teachers of science and mathematics to work in the scientific lyceum. The following were selected as experimental sites: Rivne Regional Institute of Postgraduate Pedagogical Education (2019, number of respondents - 45) and Zhytomyr Polytechnic State University (2020, number of respondents - 824). The current state of use of services by teachers of natural and mathematical subjects during the preparation of educational materials was clarified; the readiness of teachers to perform personally and teach students to conduct research work is analyzed and the state of awareness of teachers about the functions and requirements of scientific lyceums is determined. The analysis of the survey showed that most teachers recognize the need for a teacher of a scientific lyceum in scientific activities. Most respondents do not use English-language resources and services due to their low level of language proficiency. It has been found that one of the most important ways to get involved in science, according to math teachers, is to participate in scientific conferences. Regarding the implementation and use of the obtained research results, teachers plan to choose the following ways: publication of methodological materials and self-implementation. The analysis of the results of the survey of educators showed that among the respondents 574 people (69.7%) prefer to use information and communication technologies on a local computer. Analysis of the results of the ascertaining stage of the pedagogical experiment shows that there is a problem of preparing teachers of natural sciences and mathematics to work in the scientific lyceum, which needs further solution through preliminary testing and implementation of a specially created cloud-based methodological system</p> 2020-06-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 ELECTRONIC DICTIONARY OF SPORTS METAPHORS AS AN INSTRUMENT TO DEVELOP THE UKRAINIAN COMPUTER LEXICOGRAPHY 2021-07-30T13:54:11+03:00 Olena Karabuta Tamara Mandych Oleksandr Lemeshchuk <p>The article partially addresses the problem of Ukrainian computer lexicography, which requires updating methods and application of new information technologies. Modern students, as well as experts in the field of philology and journalism, are much more likely to use electronic text sources rather than traditional ones. For fast going and high-quality processing of a large array of philological units it is necessary to find tools that would provide both search for a keyword through the database and an opportunity to perform its professional analysis in online mode by linguistic criteria. The proposed research highlights the main areas of development of Ukrainian vocabulary on the Internet and describes the main advantages and disadvantages of available resources. The authors present experience in the development of a sports metaphor dictionary, structured according to the frame-slot metaphorical model system, using the MediaWiki engine, which parameters satisfy both user needs and facilitate site maintenance. The online dictionary is one of the learning tools for philological students and journalistic students, an area for conducting their own research, as well as a segment of the Ukrainian media space, which meet user requests.</p> 2020-06-26T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) VISUAL SUPPORT OF THE TOPIC "ALGORITHMS FOR SORTING AND SEARCHING" COURSE OF BASIC PROGRAMMING 2021-07-30T13:51:26+03:00 Michael Lvov Ludmila Shishko Irina Chernenko Evgen Kozlovsky <p>The article deals with the requirements and general theoretical approaches to the construction the computer mathematics system for educational purposes of studying algorithmization and programming.

The article considers a subject-oriented approach to the construction of information systems to support the educational process in the course of algorithmization and programming. This approach is applied to the implementation of the software-methodological complex "Video Interpreter for searching and sorting algorithms”. The purpose of the program-methodological complex “Video Interpreter for searching and sorting algorithms” and the integrated environment of the course “Fundamentals of Algorithms and Programming” are described.</p> 2020-05-22T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2021 LEARNING THE FUNDAMENTALS OF OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING WITH VISUAL C # 2021-07-30T13:53:41+03:00 Микола Дорошенко <p>The article provides guidelines for studying the discipline "Object-Oriented Programming" for the training of specialists of the first (bachelor's) level of higher education in the field of knowledge 01 "Education" specialty 014 "Secondary education (computer science)" educational program (computer science, mathematics).<br>This discipline plays a particularly important role in the training of computer science teachers, because the field of computer program development using the latest technologies, which includes object-oriented programming, is an important component of scientific and technological progress. Students are invited to consider the basic properties of object-<br>oriented programming and principles of visual approach to software design in Visual Studio.Net integrated environment using Visual C #. The choice of Visual Studio.Net is due to the fact that the version of Visual Studio.Net Community is a free full-featured version,<br>which differs from the professional only by a slight limitation of functions. The article considers the method of studying the basics and principles of object-oriented programming by demonstrating typical examples in lectures and consolidating the studied material in laboratory work. Examples are selected as follows,<br>to be able to demonstrate the features of data input and output in the visual programming environment Visual C #, event programming, file processing, implementation of mechanisms of encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism. Simultaneously with the demonstration of the implementation of typical examples, the required properties of the controls are studied,<br>which are used in the project. By performing laboratory work, students consolidate the knowledge gained in lectures and acquire practical skills of project development using Visual C #. The laboratory work ends with the creation of a multi-window project, which represents a computer training system for studying computational methods.<br>The creation of such a project allows students to consolidate the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of program development and demonstrates the use of interdisciplinary links in the educational process.</p> 2020-05-20T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) ORGANIZATION OF TRAINING ON STUDYING METHODS AND MEANS OF DISTANCE LEARNING FOR UNIVERSITY TEACHERS 2021-03-11T13:30:00+02:00 V. Bolilyi V. Matiash O. Riezina <p>The article describes the model of introduction of advanced training of teachers in the form of training on studying methods and means of distance learning at the Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University. At the design stage of the training, studies of domestic and foreign authors were analyzed,<br>concerning problems of the organization of distance learning, formation at teachers of necessary competences, writing of programs of training of adults, introduction of principles of interactive training, creation of the personal educational environment. Outlined problems<br>which arose during previous unsuccessful attempts to introduce distance learning in the institution, and planned ways to solve them. Namely, it was suggested to invite teachers to the group of trainers who are trainers of the Intel "Learning for the Future" program and have experience of teaching for adults.<br>The full package of normative documents and the educational and methodical complex for training were prepared and approved in advance. The participants of the first training were carefully selected (they had to have a high level of interest). And the result of three months of training was a successful first training "Development of distance learning courses by Wiki-KSPU, Cloud-<br>KSPU and Moodle-KDPU ”in January 2015, which was designed for 108 hours and 10 working days (10 modules). During the training, participants developed two distance electronic courses. One course is developed by means of Wiki-KDPU and Khmarka-KDPU, the second - by means of Moodle-KSPU. The article states the objectives of the training and demonstrates the content of training,<br>which includes theoretical and practical aspects; for each content module the topics of classes and the number of hours allotted for them are defined. It is proved that the components of the information infrastructure, which is formed in the Central Ukrainian Pedagogical University, in particular the Wiki-site,<br>Moodle cloud storage and learning management system are effective means of organizing distance learning. According to the described scheme, 9 trainings were conducted in two groups. The total percentage of participants who completed 85% of the tasks and received a certificate - 99%.<br>The provision of the educational process at the university with e-learning courses increased from 12% in 2014 to 89% in 2017.</p> 2020-03-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020
