Yang G.
Abstract

Problem and goal. A priority aspect of learning Chinese as a foreign language is the use of electronic educational complexes and materials. However, in the context of the complex digitalization of society, special factors appear that should be taken into account when developing and implementing appropriate electronic educational tools. The purpose is to explore the features and potential of e-resources for teaching Chinese as a foreign language in secondary school. Methodology. Theoretical analysis and generalization of the literature are used to describe the conditions for effective teaching of the Chinese language, and the problems of improving the quality of students' educational results. The experiment involved 52 students from the Vyatka Humanitarian Gymnasium. Learning Chinese as a foreign language is supported by StudyChinese.ru, Chinese Boost, Shibushi.ru services. Fisher's criterion was used for statistical data processing. Results. In the experimental group, primary school students used e-resources for comprehensive informatization at all stages of learning Chinese as a foreign language (speaking, listening, reading, writing, intercultural communication and collaboration). An assessment of learning outcomes was made and statistically significant differences in the qualitative changes that occurred in the pedagogical system were revealed. The features of using e-resources for integrated informatization in the study of Chinese as a second foreign language in secondary school are described. Conclusion. The types of activities and interactive exercises in the information environment are formulated, which most effectively work to improve the quality of teaching Chinese as a second foreign language.

The use of interactive game simulators for the development of algorithmic thinking of students in Russian language and literature lessons
Novoselova S.Y., Smerechinskaya N.M.
Abstract

Problem and goal . The model of formation of competitive qualities of a graduate of a modern digital school assumes that he has a culture of thinking, the ability to generalize, analyze, perceive information, set goals and choose ways to achieve it. The development of relevant skills is actively taking place in the lessons of computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry. However, the Russian language and literature have a certain didactic potential for the formation of the ability to perform mental operations, choosing the optimal way to achieve the goal, etc. The expediency of using interactive simulators to support the communicative activity of students in the study of the Russian language and literature in order to form algorithmic thinking is substantiated. Metodology. The possibilities of designers of interactive simulators for various purposes are analyzed: for the development of online games (Lingo Play, Kid Mama), quests (Learnis), mobile phones (Alice's Resort, Kotovasia), for creating puzzles, charades, crosswords, metagrams and puzzles with riddles, quizzes. To evaluate the input conditions, testing was used, including blocks on the Russian language, literature, and computer science. The experimental study was conducted in the MOE Secondary School No. 25 of Sochi named after Hero of the Soviet Union S.E. Voitenko at the lessons of Russian language, literature, computer science. The participants of the experiment were 46 schoolchildren from the sixth grades. To create interactive game simulators in the classroom, the online designer of “eTrenics” is used (services “Kokla,” “Krypton,” “Morphanki,” “UFO,” “Potato”). Statistical processing of the results was performed using Pearson's chi-square test. Results. Students study services for creating interactive game simulators, use them to process new words, memorize spelling rules, and the plot of works of art. Statistically significant differences in the qualitative changes that occurred in the system according to the levels of development of algorithmic thinking were revealed. Conclusion. Described the features of the presented version of the use of interactive game simulators for the development of algorithmic thinking of schoolchildren in Russian language and literature lessons: inter-network interaction, the design of simulators according to the rules of the Russian language or the plot of the work, the intensification of learning, taking into account the specifics of the “clip” thinking of adolescents.

EVOLUTION OF TEACHING AND LEARNING THROUGH TECHNOLOGY

Cluster approach to criteria evaluation of the quality of a student’s educational outcome
Pak N.I., Klunnikova M.M.
Abstract

Problem and goal . The issues of criteria-based evaluation of the student's educational results remain relevant for the modern theory and practice of education. As a rule, measures to monitor educational results and resources in educational institutions are carried out by expert, manual, non-automated methods. In accordance with the directions of digital transformation of education, it is necessary to create a technological assessment system that meets the requirements of modern society, subject to automation and intellectualization. The purpose of the work is to substantiate a new model of criteria-based assessment of the quality of the educational result, based on the mathematical methods of the theory of clustering and pattern recognition and allowing to automate the procedures for assessing the quality of educational objects, resources, educational and personal achievements of students. Methodology. The quality of an educational result or resource is determined by criteria indicators, which can be represented as features of the evaluated object using the information vector. By clustering the set of acceptable objects into three classes - with low, medium and high quality - it is possible to evaluate an object by its belonging to one of these classes. Clustering is carried out on the basis of a mining algorithm, the metric of city blocks is taken as a measure of the similarity of objects. Results. A program has been developed that consists of a source data module, a clustering module, and a recognition and training module. The model results of the program correlate with traditional rating assessments, in which the quality of the object is determined by a point scale. The obtained test results confirm the validity of the recognition algorithm and the correctness of the software product. Conclusion. Thus, the proposed model based on clustering and the recognition method showed the possibility of automated assessment of the quality of educational results of trainees and educational resources.
