Online lesson of Russian as a foreign language in the context of pedagogical activity digital transformation


The article describes one of the organizational forms of modern digital educational process - an online lesson. The aim of the study is to disclose the concept of “online lesson” as a linguodidactic definition of modern digital educational environment, to determine its main features and methodological possibilities for its implementing in teaching Russian as a foreign language. The methodological basis of the article comprises scientific publications on electronic linguodidactics, integration of digital technologies in the methodology of teaching Russian as a foreign language, development of methodological capabilities of electronic linguodidactics in teaching Russian as a foreign language, the content and tools of online, offline and applied educational electronic resources used in online teaching Russian as a foreign language. Based on the distinction between the concepts of “distance learning” and “online learning”, the authors identify their characteristic features and outlined an “online lesson” as an independent linguodidactic definition of innovative language education, the purpose of which is to achieve a completed but partial learning goal, implemented in real time with uninterruptable access to the Internet using electronic learning tools and active forms of interaction between students and trainees. This concept has not been sufficiently and completely described in modern methodological science in the aspect of teaching foreign languages, in particular, Russian as a foreign language, which determines the novelty of the study. The practical significance of the study lies in defining modern electronic teaching aids that can be applied in online teaching of Russian as a foreign language, classifying electronic teaching aids in Russian as a foreign language based on an aspect-integrated approach, as well as analyzing the position of methodological value of platforms providing online lessons in the system of teaching Russian as a foreign language.
