The workshop “Mobile Learning in the Study of Natural Sciences in Elementary Classes” was held at the Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University on June 14, 2018.
This workshop was presented by Svitlana Vasylenko, a participant of the international project “Modernization of Pedagogical Higher Education by Innovative Teaching Instruments” (MoPED) of the EU program Erasmus + KA2 – Development of Higher Education Capacity, No. 586098-EPP-1-2017-1-UA-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP, Deputy Head of IT in Education`s Laboratory, lecturer of IT and Math Department. S. Vasylenko adapted the materials of the “Computer Science Applacations in the Teaching of Science in Elementary School”, which had held at the University of Cyprus, in June 2018.
Master Students from the Pedagogical Institute of the specialty “Primary Education” studied the plants using the computer scientific application “Pl @ ntNet” installed on its own gadget. Students noted that Ukrainian elementary school pupils can easily cope with similar tasks. The application is installed simply, works fast. The work on the native land plants analysis is in a program of the content science line, therefore the exercise is uniquely relevant. The task for the classification of a pond animals also performs several didactic functions: acquisition of skills for recognizing animal characteristics, humane attitude to the fauna and individual representatives, work in nature, work with computer applications, teamwork, etc.
