Problem statement . One of the most important tasks that digital school teachers face is preparing a graduate, who is ready to use the acquired knowledge in his future life and find non-standard, original solutions, overcoming the usual patterns and established opinions. The study aimed at substantiating the effectiveness of the use of timeline services for the development of divergent thinking in schoolchildren in the conditions of additional education. Methodology . Theoretical and methodological analysis and generalization of fundamental scientific works on the research problem, processing of test results and timelines were applied. The pedagogical experiment involved 130 students of the state budgetary educational institution of Moscow “School No. 1506”. To diagnose and assess the formation of divergent thinking, the method of F. Williams (adapted by E.E. Tunik) was used. Pearson's chi-square test was used as a statistical processing method. Results . The timeline in additional education was carried out when displaying historical facts in chronological order, compiling algorithms, creating biographies, and presenting statistics. The didactic potential of the timeline as a kind of quantitative infographics is revealed, which offers a graphical implementation of digital data in relation to each component in the structure of creativity: flexibility, originality, elaboration, fluency. Statistically significant differences in qualitative changes in the pedagogical system were determined. Conclusion . The use of timeline services in the conditions of additional education contributes to the development of divergent thinking of students due to the possibilities of interactive presentation of events and facts, reuse, multimedia, technical minimalism. Difficulties that complicate the use of virtual timelines are noted: time resource management, the need to develop criteria and indicators for the effective use of web services for the corresponding purpose.

Digitalization of motivational features as a way to organize independent work of bachelors
Dobrovolskaia N.Y.

Problem statement . Effective organization of extracurricular work for future bachelors involves the construction of individual learning trajectories, based, among other things, on the level of motivation to study specialized disciplines. The expediency of using intelligent information technologies in classifying the composition and forms of independent work of bachelors of applied mathematics is substantiated. Methodology. Applying the developed mobile application, multi-parameter motivational characteristics of students were identified. The resulting motivational profiles are clustered into five motivational groups, similar in sign values. The construction and analysis of multi-parameter classification were carried out via cluster analysis and neural network technologies. Clustering of motivational groups and the application of appropriate strategies for organizing independent work were realized at the Faculty of Computer Technologies and Applied Mathematics of Kuban State University. Results. The constructed neural network classifies the bachelor's motivational profile, assigns him a strategy for independent work, defining the specific values of the variable elements of the strategy. Strategies for organizing independent work have been established for clustered motivational groups. Conclusion. Construction and clustering of motivational profiles allows you to adjust individual strategies for independent learning of bachelors of applied mathematics, determine the values of variable elements and, as a result, not only develop professional skills, but also develop skills in organizing your own work process, resource allocation, and identifying work stages.
