From 13 March until 20 March, as part of the implementation of the project “The development of soft skills for student teachers for work with persons with disabilities applying a Digital teaching simulator”, NCSPU conducted advanced training courses for the primary school teachers on “Digital technologies in primary education”. The lectures and workshops were given by the NCSPU leading professors: Irina Zakharova, Ph D in Psychology, NCSPU Associate Professor; Svetlana Grakhova, Ph D in Philology, NCSPU Associate Professor, the developer of the program “Digital technologies in primary education”; Nina Belyaeva, Ph D in Pedagogy, NCSPU Associate Professor; Alsu Mullakhmetova, NCSPU Professor. The students – members of the student scientific and methodological group “Digital technologies in primary philological education” under Svetlana Grakhova – worked as consultants.
The course participants improved the digital soft skills that are required for professional development in the area of applying cross-cutting digital technologies in teaching. During the training, the participants got familiar with the concept “cross-cutting digital technologies”, got acquainted with digital tools and their capabilities in teaching primary school students; they also acquired the necessary skills for building classes with the use of cross-cutting digital technologies. They tested a Digital teaching simulator for primary school students. The workshops were held at the NCSPU Technological Park and its laboratories.
