Definition of reflection characteristics of educational process participants with artificial intelligence application

Grinshkun V.V., Dreytser S.I.


Problem statement . Artificial intelligence (AI) conversational tools like chat-bots, virtual assistants and dialog trainers begin to apply in education. However, its efficiency wasn't explored because of novelty and lack of related application experience. In this research an approach to conversations based on AI is considered as means to define reflection of educational process participants. And definition results of reflection are compared between an AI conversational tool and an expert's assessment in the educational process. Methodology . Opportunities of conversational simulations based on AI were analysed for reflection assessment. Behavioural markers of reflection in communication were developed as well as assessment procedures in online mode with AI simulations and in offline mode with an expert assessment. Research was provided as a part of the volunteer’s competition. There were 65 participants of the research, students of schools and universities. Statistical processing of the results was performed using Pearson's criteria. Results. Weak correlation was detected between AI and expert assessment. Conclusion. Suggestions were offered about AI assessment improvement for increasing assessment precision of reflection of educational process participants from the methodological point of view as well as from AI algorithms development.

Approaches to designing a model for developing students’ universal competencies within the framework of developing and implementing the Smart University concept

Moshlyak G.A., Rabenatolotra A.


Problem statement. The authors deal with the components of universal competences in terms of applying technological innovations in the learning process. A fragment of the model for shaping universal competencies of students based on the concept of Smart University is described. The study is aimed at substantiating the approaches to designing a model for the formation of universal competencies, presenting their theoretical analysis based on the concept of Smart University and considering their features, structure, and classification. Methodology. The approach to designing a model of universal competence formation is based on the analysis of acronym SMART decoding and the structure of the concept Smart University. The matrix of overview of the concept of universal competence in a modern context is proposed. Results. The universal competences are understood as smart competences united by five types of competences: professional, motivational, adaptive, key, and digital. The formation of six groups of universal competences is justified: system and critical thinking; project development and implementation; teamwork and leadership; civic-patriotic behavior; self-organization and self-education; technological solution. The created model defines the structure of universal competences and serves as a criterion for assessing students' abilities. Conclusion. Smart competences are a response to the current economic situation. The approach is structured for educational organizations that share a development policy in combination with technology. The results may be of some interest to scholars in the field of education informatization, teachers and university managers on innovation and education policy.

Digital transformation of quality management of educational business processes

Shevchuk E.V., Shpak A.V.


Problem statement. Educational institutions are actively moving towards digitalization processes. These processes have to be implemented not from scratch, but taking into account the databases, information systems and technologies already applied at the informatization stage and used. Therefore, issues related to the concept of digital transformation of educational organizations become relevant. The study aimed to present the general principles and approaches to the implementation of the digital transformation of educational business processes, formed on the basis of studying domestic and foreign experience, as well as on the basis of the author's experience of participating in the informatization and digitalization of educational institutions in Russia and Kazakhstan. Methodology. The methods for systematizing the approaches of domestic and foreign researchers to the definition of the concept of digital transformation, problems, experience and prospects for the digitalization of educational organizations, methods of mathematical and computer modeling, methods of development of information management systems, methods of quality management system were used. Results. The experience and principles of continuous digital transformation of the quality management of educational business processes at the Siberian State University of Geosystems and Technologies are presented. The distinctive features of digital transformation are described: documentation support for educational programs, publishing process, intermediate certification, digital footprint formation, teaching workload management for teachers, classroom fund, system of local regulations, executive discipline of employees (“Executor Calendar”). As a result of the digital transformation of the quality management of educational business processes, an increase in target indicators and an increase in the efficiency of educational processes were noted. Conclusion. Digital transformation should develop the positive results of the informatization stage. Using the principles of the process approach, standardization and documentation of processes within the quality management system simplifies the setting of the goal and objectives of digital transformation. The principles of ensuring demand and process control allow us to consider the digital transformation of process quality management as an indicative feedback control system. The tasks of digital transformation should include: continuous improvement of the activities of an educational organization, optimization of procedures for achieving its target indicators, prevention of various inconsistencies. Digitalization processes must be continuous, taking into account the constantly changing external and internal challenges and expectations of the education system and society.

Future mathematics teachers’ implementation of research activities based on dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra

Bogdanova E.A., Bogdanov P.S., Bogdanov S.N.


Problem statement. The digital transformation of higher education significantly affects the organization of pedagogical universities students’ research activities. Therefore, two important problems can be identified. Firstly, the matter of discovering information technology tools and directions for their use for the implementation of research work of future mathematics teachers studying in 1-2 courses. And secondly, the problem of choosing a mathematical topic, the solution of which with the help of digital technologies would lead to some interesting results that have elements of novelty. The purpose of this study is to identify the line of research of a mathematical nature, the implementation of which relies heavily on the dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra’s features. Methodology. Some features of the GeoGebra dynamic mathematics software and its application in geometric studies are analyzed. To study geometric figures, methods of visualization of mathematical objects and of experimental mathematics are used. Results. Some possibilities of dynamic mathematics software applicability in research and development of pedagogical universities’ mathematical profile students are considered. In these circumstances, the emphasis is on research related to the study of spatial curves and their planar projections, the construction of which naturally relies on the principles of displaying three-dimensional objects on a screen. The role of dynamic mathematics software in such studies mainly lies in the visualization of considered geometric objects, which makes it possible to identify possible properties of the constructed curves, and then, using available mathematical apparatus, to confirm their validity. Conclusion. The direction of designing and studying geometric objects using the GeoGebra dynamic mathematics software, which formed the basis of several research works of undergraduate students, is presented.
