Informatization as a priority direction modernization of education in conditions of information society

Modern education reflects specific features of a modern type of social development. It is no accident XXI century is called the century of education. This is due to the deployment of the information revolution, where knowledge, information, intellect not only actualize their status in the system of social life, but appear as its main driving force [8, 3], which began to be realized discrepancy of modern education system needs an information society, the acceleration of life, characterized by the growth of information flows, rapid technological improvement that is the need to consider issues of information systems education.

The concept of informatization of the education sector more fully reflected in regulatory documents, where on the basis of information technology presents the basic idea of solving a number of problems of national education sector of Ukraine, as well as a system of interrelated goals, directions, methods and tools of information education and in other regulations (in Ukraine over the past decade has changed several concepts of information education, but they are not made to reform the education of integral structural changes, and were largely fragmentary character, although they were aimed at catching up Ukraine from Western developed countries in the information society).

Analysis of different concepts of education informatization [3; 9; 12; 14; 15; 19] made it possible to identify it main areas:

  1. changing the basis of education on the basis of information technology (financial, educational, informational) and the establishment of service centers of service;
  2. changing the objectives and content of education caused by the formation of fundamental science general education courses at all levels of education, the need for the formation of information culture of students in the information society;
  3. improving the efficiency, accessibility and quality of education to achieve a new level of education by integrating information technology in education, development and training;
  4. training and retraining of teachers and administrative staff to implement educational information and educational activities on the basis of the information;
  5. intensification of research and scientific and methodological activities in educational institutions;
  6. use of information technology in the management of educational institutions at different levels, until the entire education system as a whole;
  7. establishing a single comprehensive space Ukraine and integration of the national system of education in the global information infrastructure, education and European community;
  8. improving the legal framework of scientific and educational and training activities on the basis of information technology;
  9. clarification of content of educational programs, models and methods;
  10. development industry of educational services;
  11. ensuring quality control of information and educational technologies;
  12. ensuring information security a unified educational of information environment.

Different aspects in the field of information education developed in the scientific works V.P. Andrushchenka, S.А. Beshenkova, V.Yu. Bykova, B.S. Hershunskoho, М. І. Zhaldaka, Yu.О. Zhuka, А.P. Yershova, О.P. Кyvliuk, L.L. Мakarenko, N.V. Мorze, V.V. Laptieva, М.P. Lapchyka, Yu.І. Mashbytsia, О.S. Padalky, Ye.S. Polat, Yu.S. Ramskoho, І.V. Roberta, О.О. Romanovskoho, О.М. Spirina, S.М. Yashanova and others. Based on the of work of these researchers will analyze the specific of the target, semantic and processual components of education in a state of informatization.

Dealing with the of informatization of education directed at changing educational practices that is caused by the processes of information, changing the purposes and content of education and suggests some directions, the importance of which is enhanced through the development of information society.

The first direction is determined by the trend of expansion of the use of information technologies, that is norm in all spheres of human activity that causes the formation of disciplines that provide training for students in computer science and information technology the formation of their holistic information culture.

The second direction associated with the philosophical reinterpretation of the role of information in the development of nature and society, increasing understanding of general importance system-information, evolutionary synergistic approaches as fundamental methods of scientific knowledge. Informatics is transformed from a purely technical discipline of methods and means of processing information by computer on the fundamental science of information and information processes not only in technical systems, but also in nature and society that assumes humanitarian attitudes to science, defining it as met subject in educational content.

The third direction caused the integration of information technology in education as a new instrument of information and pedagogical activity that provides the feasibility of an interdisciplinary approach to education, the convergence of science and humanitarian knowledge of education, fundamentalization and restoration of its integrity.

The fourth direction caused with deep influence on goal and content of education of information society that lead to the increasing change of image of human life necessary to develop qualitatively new model of training members of the Information Society, for which ability to human communication, active mastery of the scientific world, fast and flexible change of their functions in work, tolerance, responsible civil position and developed planetary consciousness become dominants of life.

Thus, the definition of goals and content of education needs to find the optimal combination of traditional approaches that has already evolved, and the introduction of new information components aimed at formation of experience of life personality on the basis of information that leads to demand of the individual in the information society.

Informatization of education constitutes a change in its processual component. In spite of certain conceptual differences on some matters in the field of information education researchers [3; 15] unanimous in that the integration of information technology into the learning process will contribute to individualization, differentiation, intensification of education and as a result – its optimization and improvement.

The potential of information technology as indispensable support of the student's personality, his capacity for alternative thinking and to develop skills formation strategy for solving as educational and practical problem predict the results of the implementation of decisions based on modeling objects studied, phenomena, processes, correlation bonds between them.

Application of information and communication technologies while learning the basics of science increases the effectiveness of the learning process in terms of mastering the ability to self-representation and obtaining knowledge, mastery of general methods of learning and learning strategies, self-selection mode of learning activities, organizational forms and methods [15; 18; 19]. Information and communication technologies in the learning process allow the teacher to divert aid mainly to address the students creative, research and problem tasks.

The possibilities of integration of information technology in education allow us to new quality of information and educational activities, which manifests itself in didactic and psychological and educational opportunities [7; 9; 11; 13; 14; 15; 20, etc.].

Improving the organizational conditions of the educational process:

  • increase of learning efficiency through the introduction of new mechanisms of visibility, interactive learning process;
  • use of varied sources of educational information;
  • compaction of educational information due to the possibility its folding and deployment in time and space (hypertext);
  • optimization of pace of work of students: level differentiation, individualization of learning, the choice of individual educational trajectory;
  • effective implementation of interdisciplinary connections;
  • optimization of information and pedagogical activity pedagogue on the basis of information of the individual functions.

Improving the psychological and pedagogical conditions of learning activities:

  • creation in student sustainable interest and positive motivation through a natural interest in modern tools of knowledge a computer;
  • humane attitude to the student and ensure its positive the emotional state, lack of fear at the moment of ignorance ;
  • creation of favorable conditions for the formation of the general culture of thinking, communication culture, information culture of student;
  • the inclusion mechanism in student research and creative skills;
  • the development of skills of reflection, self, self, etc..

Relying on theoretical researches of domestic and foreign philosophers and pedagogues – V.P. Аndrushchenka, H.А. Bordovskoho, B.S. Hershunskoho, О.І. Hurzhiia, І.АКolesnykovoi, К.ККоlina, О.P. Кyvliuk, О.О. Кuznietsova, V.V. Лаptieva, V.S. Liedniova, L.А. Міkeshynoi, А.М. Novikova, М.Yu. Оpenkova, V.V. Serikova, V.М. Symonova and others. [1; 2; 4; 5; 6; 10; 11; 17; 20; 22],determine the tendencies of development of education in the information society (see. рic. 1).

The priority of creativity in the work – transfer of functions of the reproductive systems of information processing, to informational technologies; widening field of project activities in education.

The integrity of Education – unity, indissolubility, the relationship of science and humanities education, the implementation of interdisciplinary connections within individual disciplines, formation of a holistic systemic vision of the world in the context of interdisciplinary dialogue "two cultures" that promotes the formation of integral personality; providing functional connection humanitarization, fundamentalization and activity orientation of education.

The evolution of information technologies in education as a universal, multifunctional product of knowledge systemic formative, synthetic character of information technology in education that provides effectively supported its integrity.

Ethical dominant as creating meanings core of education conditionality the increasing role of the individual in the information society; educating people in the spirit of peace, understanding, tolerance and responsibility, citizen of the world, has the macro thinking, global ethics, a high degree of responsibility for the fate of their country and humanity as a whole; finding correct combination of individual freedom, responsibility and self-restraint as the basic regulators of their own activities; formation of socially responsible, critical thinking person with clear values.
