MICROLEARNING: A WAY TO STUDY ONLINE

Abstract.The article examines the main concepts of microlearning, as one of the methods to improve the student’s involvement
in learning, its advantages and disadvantages. The aim of foreign
languages teaching should be developing communication skills.
The introduction of new information and communication tools
are currently undergoing change. This study analyses the development potential of the learner via microlearning. The learner’s
development allows him to develop as a student.
The aim of this research is to analyse eLearning teaching methods using gadgets and online resources. The microlearning takes
into account the clip mentality (clip culture in English) acting as
a filter against being overloaded with too much information; the
authors of the article want to find an optimal combination of
tasks. How can the quality of activities be improved by increasing the flow of information? Will the profound technological
transformation change the way teachers approach the way they
teach?
The absence of the «context» is characteristic of the clip. Man
does not analyse the previously collected information, which
leads to the loss of semantic links between the phenomena that
exist in the context. A person with a clip mentality perceives information in a fragmentary way, and is therefore not able to
evaluate this information in relation to other information.
Our practical experience shows that there is a clear influence of
the use of microlearning on learning activities. Translation sites,
online translators offer the possibility to study the use of the
word in context. The resources used in the classroom make it
possible to listen to the pronunciation of the word in British English or American English
(http://wooordhunt.ru/word/collocation) or listen to the complete
sentence with the necessary word (http://context.reverso.net).
Microlearning can be used as a source of access to a new level of
foreign language proficiency.
