TEACHING COMPUTER SCIENCE
Programming as a tool for across-subjects learning in primary school
Sjöberg C., Risberg T., Nouri J., Norén E., Zhang L.
Abstract
Problem and goal. Computational thinking has been introduced in many countries around the world and teachers are working intensely to incorporate programming activities in the classroom. However, teachers are faced with several challenges due to the fact that there is still little research conducted focusing on programming education for younger children, that programming didactics is a rather new phenomenon for the K-9 educational system, and that K-9 teachers have little training with regards to programming. In Sweden for instance, programming has been introduced in several subjects and not as a subject in its own, which create a pressure on teachers to utilize programming as an instrument to teach and enhance learning of different subjects such as mathematics. Methodology. In this paper, we report on a larger lesson study conducted in a primary school (sixth grade) in Sweden with a total of 155 participating pupils. The aim of the lesson was to study whether the visual programming languages, Scratch , in particular, can be used to teach computational thinking, mathematics and social science in an interdisciplinary way. Results. Thus, the paper more specifically presents findings related to: 1) reflections of the use of lesson study methodology to develop programming education; 2) how programming can be utilized as an instrument to teach mathematics as well as social sciences in an interdisciplinary way; and 3) the didactical strategies employed by the teachers. Conclusion. The evidence from this study suggests that the interdisciplinary character of the lesson which incorporates learning goals of mathematics, social science and programming was highly beneficial. The pupils gained a better understanding of learning material by drawing, digitalizing and animating their ideas in Scratch .

ICT competence formation model of a future primary school teacher
Beshenkov S.A., Matveeva V.A.
Abstract

Problem and purpose. The article is devoted to the problem of the formation of ICT competence in future primary school teachers. In the context of global mass communication, the most valuable resource today is the ability to analyze, systematize, and interpret information. Global informatization naturally affects the education process and the main task of the education system is to identify current trends in the development of society and introduce pedagogical technologies into the educational process that form positive experience and reflect modern social changes, leading the educational process into an ordered, controlled system. The aim of the study is to find effective ways of manifesting information activities, building a model that promotes the development of ICT competence in future primary school teachers by means of mathematical cycle disciplines. Methodology. During the study, an analysis of approaches to the creation of educational models was carried out, ways of developing ICT competence of future primary school teachers by means of mathematical cycle disciplines were revealed. The main conceptual idea of the model, contributing to the solution of the didactic problems (epistemological, axiological, praxeological, professional-personal, communicative), is the reflection of mathematics in the information field as an instrument of humanization of the modern information society and personality. The basic aspects of fragmented subject modeling of pedagogical reality is the application of an integrated approach to the conceptual, criteria and quantification of the model. Results. A model for the development of ICT competence of future primary school teachers has been developed. The technological component of the model is disclosed, the criterion component of which is represented by the matrix of conjugation of levels (elementary, sufficient, advanced) and components of ICT competency (epistemological, axiological, praxiological, professional-personal, communicative). Each component is revealed through the prism of knowledge, skills and experience. Conclusion. The developed model for the development of ICT competence of future primary school teachers by means of the mathematical cycle disciplines justifies itself in practice and needs further research and quantitative analysis.

Abstract

Problem and goal. The article discusses the world experience of introducing artificial intelligence into the educational system of schoolchildren. The purpose of this study is to identify the features of the consideration of artificial intelligence as a component of the content of educational systems in individual countries of the world and possible approaches to teaching the basics of artificial intelligence in Russian schools. Methodology. In the research process, a set of methods was used: analysis of information resources and regulatory documents; generalization and systematization of professional and pedagogical experience; reflection of the content of the generated knowledge. Results. The features of the inclusion of artificial intelligence in the educational systems of individual countries of the world are revealed and differences in approaches to the process of teaching elements of artificial intelligence at the substantive and at the organizational and methodological levels are indicated. The results of the study made it possible to find approaches to teaching students of Russian schools the basics of artificial intelligence. Conclusion. It is shown that the issue of including artificial intelligence in the educational systems of various states is at the stage of development and design, which is based on various approaches. It was revealed that today, artificial intelligence is most often regarded as a means of teaching schoolchildren, and not as their object of study. The results of the study made it possible to propose approaches to teaching the basics of artificial intelligence in a general school.

DIDUCTIC ASPECTS OF EDUCATION INFORMATIZATION
Cloud technologies as a basis for the integration of teacher training systems for the International Baccalaureate schools
Grinshkun V.V., Shunina L.A.
Abstract

Problem and goal. The article describes and substantiates the ways of solving the problem of the lack of approaches to the integration of methodical systems for training future teachers for International Baccalaureate programs based on the use of cloud technologies. The need for such integration is due to the fact that the training of teachers for International Baccalaureate schools involves professionals from various fields and organizations, including foreign speakers. The purpose of the described study was to confirm the effectiveness of the developed model of approaches to informatization of the system of training for future teachers of International Baccalaureate schools. Methodology. A pilot study consisting of two stages was conducted. At the first stage, we worked with professors of the pedagogical university who are training future teachers for International Baccalaureate schools. The second stage was carried out based on the formation of two groups of students of the pedagogical university: control group (19 people) and experimental group (17 people). In the experimental group, students were trained in the conditions of integrated methodical systems of disciplines based on a specially developed model of approaches to informatization of training for future teachers of International Baccalaureate schools. Results. The study found that the integration of methodical systems using cloud technology to organize joint work on training future teachers for International Baccalaureate schools contributes to the effectiveness of the formation of professional competence of such teachers. Conclusion. The effectiveness of the developed model of approaches to the integration of methodical disciplines that form the basis for training future teachers for International Baccalaureate schools is experimentally proved.
