On the other hand, the widespread introduction of distance learning in the conditions of quarantine restrictions caused by COVID-19 increases the need to modernize both the resource and organizational and methodological support of the educational process. The materials of this article are devoted to the study of the possibilities of using freely distributed H5P tools to support distance learning in higher education institutions. We analyzed the state of research of the problem of development and implementation of interactive didactic H5P tools in domestic and foreign institutions of higher education; Insufficient use of this tool in domestic universities despite the presence of successful foreign practices has been identified. According to the results of a comparative analysis of the functionality of various means of supporting distance learning, which have become most common in higher education institutions, the benefits of using H5P to maximize the involvement of students in distance learning. The wider possibilities of creation, use and distribution of interactive educational elements on the basis of H5P in comparison with other electronic educational technologies are shown. The results of a survey of NULES of Ukraine teachers on determining the complexity and importance of using different H5P tools to support distance learning are presented.

It also outlines the influence of the latest technology on students’ progress. The table of the virtualanatomical imaging system was used as an “innovative implementation” which became the drivingforce behind the use of multimedia technology.The effectiveness of using the virtual systemwhile giving lectures was identifiedthrough regular testing used to measure the students’ knowledge level of the studied material. The experiment involved only students ofthe medical facultyof Kherson State University, who specialize in medicine and are highly interested in getting practical skills as well as visualizing the study materials. The main component of an action plan was a regular check of thestudents’ progress that was conducted in two groups taught with different teaching methods. Our results demonstratethe continuous progress in the group, in which lectures were held using the interactive anatomical table. On the contrary,stability anda periodic decrease in the knowledge level were notedin the group, in which lectures were held without using the innovative technologies. The results of the experiment are presented in the form of a chart and a histogram that reflect the students' progress. It was alsostudied the ability of students to conduct independent research work, the development of their intellectual abilities and creative potential. It should be emphasized that the interactive anatomical table at Kherson State University covers several areas of application: medical universities and colleges, sports and medical facilities, television etc. The implementation of innovative technologies into the educational process requires the development and scientific substantiation of the content and methods of organization of the educational process that are mastered by the scientific and pedagogical staff of the medical faculty of the University.</p> Наталія Шахман Мар’яна Мітяй Євген Лисенко Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Information Technologies in Education (ITE) 2021-09-23 2021-09-23 49 10.14308/ite000743 INTEGRATION OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES INTO THE PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES OF PRESCHOOL TEACHERS <p>The purpose of the article is to analyze and describe the results of the study of the current<br>state of the introduction of digital technologies in preschool education, in particular the available<br>means of digital technologies for preschool education, the level of ICT competence of educators,<br>the level of integration of digital technologies in the educational process, ways to apply digital<br>technologies in practice. The results showed that most educators are well aware of the use of<br>educational ICTs. However, the level of integration of ICTs into the educational process is still at<br>a low level. Most educators are ordinary users and use ICT for their own needs, and not for<br>direct support of the educational process of preschool education. In addition, the effective<br>integration of ICTs into the professional activities of educators is hindered by insufficient<br>training, lack of modern equipment and time constraints. Although educators were positive<br>about the use of digital technologies in preschool education, respondents used ICT on a limited<br>scale, mainly for watching videos and listening to music. Observations and interviews with<br>caregivers prove that ICTs can improve the practice of preschool education, providing many<br>additional opportunities to enrich and transform the educational process. The study shows that<br>ICTs in preschool institutions are used in various directions: as a tool for enriching current<br>practices; as a cultural intermediary; as a way of entertainment and development of children; as a<br>means of communication and documentation. In addition, considering the values and attitudes of<br>educators to ICT in preschool age, the article describes the position of educators who believe<br>that ICT is not desirable to use in the education of preschool children.

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.

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> Maiia Marienko Mariya Shyshkina Copyright (c) 2021-03-01 2021-03-01 49 10.14308/ite000730 THE APPLICATION OF MOODLE PLATFORM FUNCTIONS TO DEVELOP FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEXICAL COMPETENCY <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.

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> Borys Shevchuk Larysa Shevchuk Copyright (c) 2021-03-01 2021-03-01 49 10.14308/ite000735 PREPARING THE FUTURE EDUCATOR TO THE CREATION OF AUGMENTED REALITY EXCURSIONS IN LOCAL EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS <p>The article highlights the peculiarities of future teachers' preparation for the organization of augmented reality virtual excursions in educational institutions. The pedagogical conditions of preparing the future teachers in higher education institutions for virtual tours as an important form of the educational process are substantiated. The pedagogical conditions and conducting such excursions of augmented reality in local educational environments are found out on the basis of BYOD concept. The differences, advantages and disadvantages of virtual, augmented and mixed reality excursions in the educational process of pedagogical institutions are also analysed. The ways of realization of the offered approach are presented, in particular creation of the routes of excursions in education by means of QR codes, which extends the boundaries of conducting excursions in space and in time, makes this form of training more flexible and systematic. The stages and peculiarities of creation the excursion routes in local environments of educational institutions were grounded, the method of diagnostics of certain aspects of students' knowledge about the conditions of the creation of virtual excursions in local educational environments is presented. Attention is paid to the importance of future teachers' media education as they will design the educational environments including modern informative and pedagogical innovations, and the logic of the evolutionary change of computerized textbooks and online educational resources for mobile learning is proved. The concept of augmented reality opportunities opens wide prospects for the introduction of learning innovations in all forms of educational process organization.</p> Veronika Denysenko Nataliia Borysenko Natalia Sydorenko Iryna Hrytsenko Copyright (c) 2021-03-01 2021-03-01 49 10.14308/ite000736
