Results of appropriate survey among students<br>of pedagogical university are discussed. The students answered the questions about systematicity of their learning activity and propositions for its improving. It is determined that the leading problems are needs in more careful instruction according to features of the task completing, insufficient experience in self-management, the lack of internal motivation. Most of all, students recommend to provide the tasks with detail instruction (oral or written) and to pay attention to careful planning the time that is necessary for full completion of the task. It is pointed that such complicated requirements can be satisfied only by complex use of information and communication technologies as well as the automated system of pedagogical diagnostics. Some requirements for management of students’ out-of-classroom independent work are formulated as a result of this discussion.</p> Олександр Колгатін Лариса Колгатіна Надія Пономарьова Катерина Шмельцер Copyright (c) 2019 Олександр Колгатін, Лариса Колгатіна, Надія Пономарьова, Катерина Шмельцер 2019-12-19 2019-12-19 52 70 88 10.31812/pedag.v52i0.3777 TODOS as digital science-support environment to provide STEM-education <p>The amount of scientific information has been growing exponentially. It became more complicated to process and systemize this amount of unstructured data. The approach to systematization of<br>scientific information based on the ontological IT platform Transdisciplinary Ontological Dialogs of Object-Oriented Systems (TODOS) has many benefits. It has been proposed to select semantic characteristics of each work for their further introduction into the IT platform TODOS. An ontological graph with a ranking function for previous scientific research and for a system of selection of journals has been worked out. These systems provide high performance of information management of scientific information.</p> Євгеній Шаповалов Віктор Шаповалов Володимир Засельський Copyright (c) 2019 Євгеній Шаповалов, Віктор Шаповалов, Володимир Засельський 2019-12-19 2019-12-19 52 89 104 10.31812/pedag.v52i0.3778 Use of Web 2.0 technology tool — educational blog — in the system of foreign language teachin <p>This paper discusses the use of a Web 2.0 technology tool - educational blog - in the system of teaching foreign languages for enhancement of teaching effectiveness and optimization of students’ performance.
