Abstract

Ukrainian primary schools are experiencing significant changes as to Reform ‘New Ukrainian School’; it reflects rapid updating of information technology and high level of children’s informational activity. Nowadays education has a number of resources to support the teaching and learning for primary school students considering the fact that this school generates the foundation for student's success in the contemporary digital society. Primary schools are basically focused on development of subject knowledge and general study skills. The article deals with the practical activity organization of primary school students with using e-simulators as one of resources for developing subject knowledge and general study skills. The examples of using interactive e-simulators for young learners by teachers-to-be are demonstrated in the article. The research shows that interactive e-simulators provide real task variability, uniqueness of exercises, operative assessment of correction, adjustment of task difficulty, shade of competitiveness and game. The paper presents principles of construction of interactive authors’ e-simulators: developed e-simulators should generate learners’ interest; be visually presented to create pleasant emotional background; problem definition should involve learners into critical analysis of input data as to their adequacy, redundancy, relevance; e-simulators should allow learners to operate free; the principle of reliance on pedagogical and research tools of personal IT devices means the recognition of the power of modern personal IT devices and their feasibility of use in the learning process as effective and affordable tools of educational and research activities. Based on the analysis of existing experience of using e-simulators in the practice of primary education, we found that for primary school teachers it is important not only the ability to use ready-made simulators, but also the ability to create ones independently, improve them, use knowledge of tools and their functional capabilities, select and formulate tasks for young learners, assess adequately the quality of the developed e-simulators.
