Functioning of Information Educational Environment: Meta Dynamic Approach

Article excerpt

Abstract

The article substantiates the meta dynamic approach that determines ways for information educational environment analysis. The implementation of the said approach includes a versatile analysis of information with the application of offered meta dynamic methods and tools. Tools of meta dynamics allow to regard changes in the rate of the information process, to analyze structural modifications of the information environment. The change of the information process can be analyzed, for example, if the rate of new information emegence and the rate of its processing are taken into account. These and other similar measuring instruments are based on indicators of the second order. The modification of the information structure is analyzed on the basis of absolute and relative indexes of the moved and changeable information volume, and the dynamics of the environment structure. There the process of information restructuring is implied, including, for example, the emergence of new structural components, their association, removal, specification. In this context there has been given a theoretical justification for the set of meta dynamic tools of the second order application. There have been presented some results of their experimental approbation. The significance of the designated approach has a predictive value in the development of a vocational school and its information educational environment.

Keywords: meta dynamics, vocational school, educational activity, information environment, information process, information streams

1. Introduction

A great number of researchers describe specific aspects of information educational environment dynamics analysis, however, registration and constant analysis of information environment changes is a labor-consuming task the solution of which requires specialized knowledge in the sphere of information analytics and expert experience of the information educational environment that integrates science, production and education (Ivanov et al., 2015; Shaidullina et al., 2014, 2015; Sibgatova et al., 2015; Khairullina et al., 2015; Torkunova et al., 2014; Kirilova & Vlasova, 2013; Masalimova et al., 2014; Biktagirova & Valeeva, 2015).

The information educational environment, as a rule, has a heterogeneous structure that is subject to ongoing changes; some of them transform the initially accepted model of the environment described in the categories of its objects system, their leading classes and interrelations. The main issue is connected with the continuous substantial additions of information and functional potential increase of the information environment which have destructive impact on the initial ideology of this environment functioning (Mikhaylov et al., 2009). Uncontrollable changes often result in observed contradictions of common and specific objectives of environment functioning, i.e. the development of information educational environment gains a spontaneous character. The signs of spontaneity are as follows: the heterogeneity of the environment network structure; unreasonably difficult, and at times entangled and inconsistent structures; duplication and non-compliance of information in databases and knowledge; uncontrollable functioning of information streams in the interaction of information educational environment subjects in vocational training; processing, search and information analysis errors; production decrease of the applied algorithms system (Kalimullin, 2014). It is possible to expect that the improvement of the information educational environment structure will demand the creation and use of relevant tooling arrangement.

The processing of educational content is aimed to transform adequately the composition and structure of educational information in compliance with potentials and requirements of a more modern version of information environment (Morina, 2011; Kalimullin, 2014, 2015; Kalimullin & Gabdilkhakov, 2014; Lisitzina et al. …
