Abstract


Problem and goal. Methods are proposed for solving the problem of searching for information technologies, which, due to new approaches to information visualization, can increase the efficiency of students mastering hieroglyphics - one of the main and most difficult to study components of Chinese language learning systems. As a way to solve this problem, the application of augmented reality technology can be proposed, provided that the means and forms of its effective use are found in the framework of teaching the Chinese language in school. The aim of the study described in the article was the development and experimental confirmation of the effectiveness of approaches to teaching students in school hieroglyphic writing and the semantic interpretation of hieroglyphs based on the use of augmented reality tools. Methodology. A practical study was carried out on the basis of the formation of the experimental (63 people) and control (71 people) groups of students in grades 5 and 6. Schoolchildren of the experimental group were trained using augmented reality tools, hieroglyph markers, a specially selected collection of 3D models and developed tasks for comparing hieroglyphs and their semantic meanings, searching for hieroglyphics by their meanings, developing 3D models for visualizing the meanings of hieroglyphs. The analysis of the level of lexical skills of schoolchildren in terms of comparing hieroglyphs and their semantic values was carried out using integral indicators using methods of mathematical statistics. Results. It is shown that the proposed approach to using augmented reality technologies in the framework of teaching the Chinese language at school is effective. It is justified to create and develop collections of electronic versions of hieroglyphs and virtual objects that reflect the meaning of the main hieroglyphs studied at school. An effective method is when the students themselves are involved in such developments. Such approaches can play a significant role in informatization of educational systems for schoolchildren, as well as in establishing additional interdisciplinary ties. Conclusion. The effectiveness of the proposed approaches to the development of systems for preparing schoolchildren to study hieroglyphics in the framework of teaching the Chinese language based on the use of augmented reality technology has been experimentally confirmed. During the study, schoolchildren of the 5th and 6th grades showed an increased level of lexical skills in terms of comparing hieroglyphs and their semantic meanings, searching and writing hieroglyphs for a given semantic value.
