Research on the differences of students’ learning styles and knowledge integration in SPOC learning: a case study of course “Basic Portuguese”
Hu J., do Carmo Vieira S.M.

Problem and goal. With the advent of the information age, Internet-based online learning has also become one of the learning methods chosen by many learners. They can use these online learning platforms to complete knowledge construction while learning offline. Methodology. Most studies of learning behaviors focus on the discovery of the best learning model and disregard the possible impact of different learning behaviors on knowledge construction. Therefore, based on the Felder - Silverman learning style model, this article uses the Solomon learning style scale to improve the design of the questionnaire and collect four-dimensional differential learning behaviors data. In order to further understand the influence of learning styles on the effectiveness of online learning, we also use online learning data on the Small Private Online Course platform and general cognitive intelligence knowledge integration theory to clarify the relation between learning modes and individuals’ differences. Results. This study observes and analyzes the learning behavior data of 46 students of Nankai University in the SPOC learning platform, also analyzes the differences in learning styles and knowledge construction of students in the SPOC environment. Compared with the traditional “Basic Portuguese” teaching method, the blended teaching model based on the Chaoxing Learning platform has unparalleled advantages. Interactions inside and outside the classroom, improving student participation and promoting teaching diagnosis. Conclusion. Through a comprehensive analysis of questionnaire data and online data, we found that some learning styles have different effects on the effectiveness of online learning, ignoring the individual differences of learners will still cause problems in knowledge construction.

Krasnova G.A., Polushkina A.O.

Problem and goal. In Russian society, the simultaneous and mass transition to distance learning of educational organizations in March 2020 in connection with a new coronavirus infection caused a sharp discussion about the effectiveness and consequences of this format of training, as well as about the prospects for its use after the COVID-19 pandemic. In the current conditions, the education system is faced with the task of training specialists in the face of the uncertainty of the future and the accelerated digitalization of the economy. The purpose of the research is to analyze the main factors influencing the development and spread of distance learning in the coming years, as well as the possible short and long-term consequences of switching to distance learning in higher education institutions. Methodology. The analysis of the scientific literature and practical activities, as well as experienced teaching, was used in the study. Results. The content and form of education will significantly transform in the long term. Today the necessary digital competencies cannot be acquired within the framework of the traditional educational process (lectures, seminars, exams in oral form), without the systematic use of information technologies in the educational process. Information technologies will be in high demand by graduates and will allow them to be prepared for the practical use of IT in the workplace. In addition, it can significantly improve the effectiveness of training because it allows to implement an individual learning trajectory, personalize training, remove restrictions on the time and place of training, and increase the visibility and interactivity of the educational process. Conclusion. Online education, e-learning using distance learning technologies in the long term will meet the demand of students and society for training in an uncertain future. Thanks to information technologies, conditions are created for active cognitive and educational activities of students, individualization of training is provided, turning the student into an active and equal participant in the educational process, including by refusing to provide ready-made differentiated knowledge, which leads to the formation of the reproductive nature of thinking in students.

Sadykova A.R., Levchenko I.V., Kartashova L.I.

Problem and goal. The practical (pedagogical) training sites based on Moscow schools in the context of effective development of the resources of the Moscow Electronic School by future computer science teachers are analyzed. The goal is to identify the correlation of the digital footprint obtained as a result of the development of the school network activity index based on data on the actions of teachers and students in e-learning environments and of educational organizations identification corresponding to this index, as well as the methodological activity of schools in Moscow - the bases of practical (pedagogical) training of future computer science teachers. Methodology. The analysis of regulatory documents and the database of Moscow schools, where the Moscow City University students of the “Computer Science” direction are engaged in practical (pedagogical) training, reflection on the content of the knowledge obtained, search for criteria for selecting basic schools for conducting practical (pedagogical) training of future computer science teachers, local pedagogical experiment were used. Results. It was found out that the activity of schools in the development and use of educational resources of the Moscow Electronic School is not a prerequisite for cooperation with these schools. At the same time, the knowledge of information technologies, including the technology of working with the resources of the Moscow Electronic School, by future subject teachers, is an integral part of the professional competence of a modern teacher, and especially a computer science teacher. Conclusion. The basic criteria for selecting sites for industrial practices of future computer science teachers, in particular students of the Moscow City University, are proposed. The formulated criteria for selecting basic schools for conducting practical (pedagogical) training of university students will allow them to successfully solve the tasks set for this type of educational activity, achieve their goals and form professional and pedagogical competencies.
