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> М.

Bunke Copyright (c) Mon, 30 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0300 SOFTWARE FOR RESEARCH OF DYNAMICS OF PROCESSES <p>Since Newton research of dynamics of processes consists in construction of corresponding mathematical model and its careful studying. However investigation of any more or less real system is impossible without a computer and information technology. Computer simulation derives from two steps: (i) modeling, i.e. finding a model description of a real system, and (ii) solving the resulting model equations using computational methods. In the natural sciences it is often not so difficult to find a suitable model. On the other hand, due to computer simulations economics has entered the stage of deep transformation of its bases. However in economics the resulting equations are easier to solve, but they are harder to find. Therefore, here it is expedient and convenient to use a computer at the stage of modeling itself, i.e. on the model search stage. The <em>С# </em>desktop application <em>Model</em> specially intends for support process of modeling itself using computer. It is advisable and convenient to use specialized software for numerical experiments, which allows obtaining the model in a subject language, without codes; immediately afterwards all the necessary research tools already tuned to this model; easily modify the model depending on the results of the experiments. It was developed and continuously improved simultaneously and in close relationship with the construction of the theory of the general market model according to the new dynamic paradigm of economics, computational experiments via <em>Model</em> played a major role in the construction of this theory. As a result of this real and hard testing the latest version of&nbsp; <em>Model</em>&nbsp; has now reached some complete form and is submitted in this paper. In particular use of this software in educational process is reasonable: to concentrate attention to very uneasy subject - the process of research</p> О. Veitsblit, N.

The content of the training materials in these subjects contains hours for the implementation of project activities, which is based on the formation of holistic ideas about the laws of development of science and technology. In the work, we identified topics for each subject that can be implemented using robotics, provided examples of such projects, and also indicated the stages of their creation. In contrast to the prevailing opinion about a robotic project, as a project only on information technology or physics, an example of the transfer of knowledge in physics, chemistry and biology at different stages of the creation of such systems is given. The competencies that are formed as a result of the implementation of STEM-projects in robotics, as well as the types of activities that affect their formation, are determined. An example of the relationship between various activities in STEM-projects on robotics is given. in the process of preparing future teachers of natural mathematical disciplines. This material will help future and practicing teachers in planning their own and student activities to create robotic systems.</p> Nataliia Valko Copyright (c) Mon, 30 Sep 2019 00:00:00 +0300 “ADVANCED COURSE ON SOFTWARE ENGINEERING” AS THE FIRST MODEL FOR TRAINING OF SOFTWARE ENGINEERS <p>Designing a mobile-oriented environment for professional and practical training requires determining the stable (fundamental) and mobile (technological) components of its content and determining the appropriate model for specialist training. In order to determine the ratio of fundamental and technological in the content of software engineers’ training, a retrospective analysis of the first model of training software engineers developed in the early 1970s was carried out and its compliance with the current state of software engineering development as a field of knowledge and a new the standard of higher education in Ukraine, specialty 121 “Software Engineering”. It is determined that the consistency and scalability inherent in the historically first training program are largely consistent with the ideas of evolutionary software design. An analysis of its content also provided an opportunity to identify the links between the training for software engineers and training for computer science, computer engineering, cybersecurity, information systems and technologies. It has been established that the fundamental core of software engineers’ training should ensure that students achieve such leading learning outcomes: to know and put into practice the fundamental concepts, paradigms and basic principles of the functioning of language, instrumental and computational tools for software engineering; know and apply the appropriate mathematical concepts, methods of domain, system and object-oriented analysis and mathematical modeling for software development; put into practice the software tools for domain analysis, design, testing, visualization, measurement and documentation of software. It is shown that the formation of the relevant competencies of future software engineers must be carried out in the training of all disciplines of professional and practical training.</p> Andrii Striuk Copyright (c) Mon, 30 Sep 2019 00:00:00 +0300 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE USE OF OPEN SYSTEMS NETWORK TECHNOLOGIES IN THE STUDY OF FUTURE BACHELORS OF INFORMATICS <p>The article presents recommendations for the use of open systems network technologies (OSNT). It determines the priority directions of the use of OSNT and the circumstances of their implementation at higher educational institutions (HEI). While modeling the process of specialist training, all its aspects (educational, scientific, organizational, managerial, educational etc.) should be analysed. It is important to use open systems network technologies in the educational process at HEI. The transition to the system of organization of educational process with the use of OSNT is theoretically grounded. Such transition requires that a university present an information package about the institution and a student coordinator for the educational process. The article focuses on the process of training of Bachelors of Informatics. It is determined that informing of future Bachelors of Informatics about the organization of their study program, peculiarities of training quality control and managerial activity is carried out at all levels of management: chair, dean’s office, university administration. The peculiarities of the use of OSNT by all the participants of the educational process of the HEI are described. It is substantiated that OSNT fully accompany the process of students training. The academic staff forms the educational load and elaborates the educational and methodical complex of subjects. The administration of HEI and educational and administrative staff of HEI (enrollment committee, the formation of lessons schedule, library, personnel department) also have important functions in the process of students training. OSNT selection for the higher educational institutions should be performed according to the following characteristics: (i) management supporting; (ii) commitment to the end-user; (iii) establishment of three-dimensional interaction; (iv) user service.</p> Tetiana Vdovychyn, Uliana Kohut, Oksana Sikora Copyright (c) Mon, 30 Sep 2019 00:00:00 +0300
