Designing Cloud-Oriented University Environment in Teacher Training of Future Physical Education Teachers

Article excerpt


The purpose of the research is to substantiate theoretical and methodological foundations of pedagogical training of physical education teachers in the conditions of informational and educational environment of a university. The priority direction of the development of education is the introduction of information technologies (IT), which facilitates access to education, improving the efficiency of education and educational process in general. The problem of teachers' training in higher education institutions and, consequently, the formation of their professional qualities in the process of learning becomes a significant factor. At the current state of development of the national system of pedagogical education, requirements for their practical and theoretical pedagogical readiness are increasing. The need for new teachers with a holistic vision of professional activity who are capable of independent decision-making and possessing special skills and abilities of interaction and communication, formed during the process of pedagogical preparation in higher education institutions is being formed. The effectiveness of the education process depends to a large extent on the teacher's personality, the level of formation of his/her readiness for a permanent process of modernization of the education system. The teacher must be characterized not only by a high level of subject knowledge, but also by the profound ability to use innovative means and forms in the professional activity - the readiness to apply the acquired knowledge and skills in educational, social, pedagogical, scientific, methodological and organizational-management activities.

Modern pedagogical education develops through the formation of a holistic view of the teacher about his own professional activity in the conditions of informatization, which is why during the past years theintegrated courses of pedagogical disciplines with IT have been included in syllabiin many universities in Ukraine. On the basis of this purpose the formation of professionally important qualities of future teachers, professional consciousness and behaviour, as well as positive impact on the development of a personality is carried out. Taking into account the above, there is a contradiction between the requirements put forward by the informational society towards physical education teachers and the quality of his/her pedagogical training in higher education institutions, which is measured by the professional readiness. The research of these inquiries substantiates the need for scientifically grounded changes in the strategy and structure of their pedagogical training, in particular the search for new content, innovative methods, forms and teaching technologies using IT.
