NETWORK PEDAGOGICAL COMMUNICATION AS A MEANS OF ENHANCING FUTURE TEACHERS’ RELEVANT PROFESSIONAL SKILLS

Abstract. The paper considers the problem of the formation of
professional and personal qualities of a future teacher using information technology. The emphasis is on the use of various
online pedagogical communities to improve the methodological
competence of the future teacher. However, the authors say that
the main problem is that in conditions of an excess of information, professional selective value is important in the process of
finding the information necessary for work. The article shows
that network pedagogical interaction becomes part of the implementation of a high-quality educational process. Using the Internet allows teachers of different educational institutions to exchange information online, regardless of time and distance, as
well as use high-quality educational and methodical online development of the world’s leading scientific schools. This community includes information and educational resources necessary
for the teacher to implement professional activities: media library, links to resources of domestic and foreign experience (development of lessons and assignments on topics, projects, extracurricular events). The communication unit of the online pedagogical community gives teachers the opportunity to communicate in various forums, chats andblogs. A large selection of master classes is held in various fields: a master class on creating lessons, assignments, tests; master class on the use of Internet technologies in teaching a foreign language; international masterclass on the exchange of experience.
Various types and forms of network pedagogical interaction are
presented, namely: web communication, foreign continuing education courses, the British Council network resource, which presents various projects and scientific communities on the most
modern topics; International professional associations of educators, webinars such as online lectures, classes or briefings, where
participants receive information on a given topic; distance contests of professional mastery, which the authors consider as a
stage of improving the professional skills of the teacher. Researchers argue that network interaction is possible only undera
number of conditions: 1) the availability of qualified teachers
who are able to use computer equipment and modern applied
software; 2) the presence of joint activities of Network participants in the common information space. It is concluded that the
network interaction of teachers is a long process, which consists
of many components that affect the professional activity of a
teacher. Professional web communication acts as a teacher’s selfrealization, which in turn leads to self-improvement and the ability to «keep up to date.» Network communication of teachers is a
broad concept that includes all aspects that relate to various
forms of teachers’ self-development through the network “Internet”: exchange of experience on various information platforms;
creating a new product; demonstration of own developments and
materials; participation in professional competitions.
