Modeling approaches to informatization of project activities in secondary school
Miryugina E.A., Kornilov V.S.

Problem and goal. In the system of modern education, the issue of informatization of project activities is studied only in terms of its use within individual subject areas. This significantly narrows the possible effect of using this method at the intersection of subject areas, which was the original purpose of creating and describing this method. At the same time, it is extremely rare to mention the construction of a school project management system, although management is also necessary for the implementation of the project, especially when it comes to projects at the intersection of subject areas, when entire teams of project coordinators (subject teachers), teams of project participants (students), representatives from enterprises and/or universities (project partners) are involved. The purpose of our research is to model approaches to informatization of project activities. Methodology. Project management is sufficiently described in modern literature and research, and the standards of project management are described and accepted all over the world. In our study, to model approaches to informatization of project activities, we will rely on the experience of using the method in the economy and on the standards adopted worldwide and in the Russian Federation. Results. The conducted research has shown that in education it is possible to effectively apply the approaches that have proven themselves in the economy, which makes it possible to effectively apply the project method in educational activities. Conclusion. We were able to apply universal standards of project management to model approaches to informatization of project activities, which in the future will allow us to organize the project activities of schoolchildren at a fundamentally new level.

Problem and goal. Determination of the place and role of education in the national security system at the present stage based on the analysis of the foreign and Russian regulatory framework, as well as scientific literature on the subject of the study. Methodology. Through the analysis and parallel comparison of the main domestic and foreign regulatory legal acts in the field of security, the key transformations of the perception and vision of education as a factor of national security in foreign countries and Russia were identified, and the causal relationships between the development of the education system and national security were formulated. Results. The problems of national security in all their diversity are significantly related to the state and sustainability of the development of the educational sphere, the impact of which is long-term and has far-reaching consequences in the form of imbalances in the socio-economic, scientific and technological development of the country. Conclusion. The formalization of existing approaches to assessing threats to national security and the economic aspects of ensuring national security will allow us to propose a methodology for quantifying the costs of the education system as a whole (or only for higher education), necessary to optimize the impact of education on national security.
