Training for Primary School Teachers in Teaching Mathematics Using Information Technologies
(Studio NOA for University of Silesia in Katowice, 2017) Skvortsova, Svetlana; Haran, Marina; South Ukrainian National Pedagogical University named after K.D. Ushynskyi, Odesa, Ukraine; Kherson State Agrarian University, Ukraine
The thesis focuses on the possibility of solving the problem of using information technologies in mathematics teaching training for pre-service primary school teachers which involves teaching mathematics by the means of multimedia methodical complex of the discipline «Teaching methodology of the educational branch ”Mathematics”». The structure of multimedia methodical complex is presented as a constructor of video presentations of lectures, bank of multimedia materials of laboratory and practical tasks, bank of multimedia materials for students’ independent work, tests’ bank. The pedagogical experiment proved the efficiency of the multimedia methodical complex in forming all of the components of future primary school teachers’ methodical competency in teaching mathematics.
The Application of Computational Tools of IT in Mathematical Tasks
(Studio NOA for University of Silesia in Katowice, 2017) Országhová, Dana; Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra
Changes in university education are caused, among others, by integrating tools of information technology into the teaching and self-study of mathematics. In the paper we present some samples of applying graphical and computational tools in mathematics. We focused on the graphical interpretation of the definite integral of a function with one variable via free computational software. By method of two-sample t-test we have verified the statistical hypothesis about the significant differences between the assessment results of compulsory study subjects Mathematics IA and Mathematics IB in the bachelor economics study programs. Based on the obtained results, there is a statistically significant difference between the exam results in the evaluated study subjects.
Making a Move to Teaching in an E-Learning Environment – GUT Perspective
(Studio NOA for University of Silesia in Katowice, 2017) Mokwa-Tarnowska, Iwona; Politechnika Gdańska
Incorporating e-learning resources and activities into a university course curriculum involves restructuring the whole teaching programme to achieve a synergistic effect. It also requires the teachers to acquire appropriate knowledge and develop new skills necessary to supervise the educational process in a new and more versatile environment. The development of web 2.0 technologies has enabled educators to move from instructivism towards constructivism, constructionism and connectivism, that is towards interactive, collaborative and active learning. Not all teachers, however, realise that the shift will help them create a more effective environment. The ideas presented above will be supported by Gdansk University of Technology (GUT’s) academics’ opinions and attitudes expressed in a survey.
Model of Hybrid Cloud-oriented Educational Environment for Formal and Informal Learning of It Students
(Studio NOA for University of Silesia in Katowice, 2017) Glazunova, Olena; Voloshyna, Tetyana; National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine
Educational process of IT specialists’ training should be based not only on formal education, but also to use various forms and tools of non-formal and informal learning. Main practical professionally oriented skills and abilities are retained only due to students’ individual work while doing tasks in programming, algorithmization, designing etc. Development of effective academic resources for formal learning will help students to work individually as well as provide comfortable ways of delivering such materials with the help of Internet guarantees enhancing the quality of studies. The present article describes the most effective tools and technologies of formal and informal learning of IT students, considers the issue of creating and using a hybrid cloud-oriented environment. It solves the problem of designing and creating such an environment which will provide effective development of students’ professional competencies as well as Soft Skills.
Formation of Digital Competencies in the Process of Changing Educational Paradigm From E-Learning to Smart-Learning at Pedagogical University
(Studio NOA for University of Silesia in Katowice, 2017) Balyk, Nadiia; Shmyger, Galina; Department of Computer Science, Volodymyr Hnatiuk Ternopil National Pedagogical University, Ukraine
The article analyzes the transformation of the educational paradigm of higher education from e-learning to SMART-learning and describes theoretical and practical aspects of the digital competencies formation of future teachers in the context of creating new knowledge in the SMART-University environment. A model for the formation of digital competencies in the context of creating new knowledge became the methodological basis for the IT-course for undergraduates of the pedagogical university. An experimental study was conducted in order to implement this model into the educational process of Pedagogical University. The results of the study showed that the role of university is changing from providing knowledge to creating the conditions for students’ forming appropriate digital competencies in the context of creating new knowledge.
