Since 2020, education systems around the world had to shift from traditional classroom-based methods of teaching and learning to different types of remote or distance learning. Therefore, the shift to distance learning is able to provide some understanding on how this model of learning influences student motivation and creativity. <strong>Purpose.</strong> The study aimed to reveal how student positive or negative attitudes about distance learning influenced their creativity. <strong>Methods.</strong> The intervention took place at V.O. Sukhomlynskyi National University of Mykolaiv in Ukraine. The research was based on such methodology as a document analysis of student works, conducting a survey, and the correlation analysis. The Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, a Likert scale questionnaire, the correlation analysis in Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) were utilized as the research procedure. <strong>Results</strong>. The research findings revealed that while studying remotely on the elective course of Marketing during 2020-2021 academic year at V.O. Sukhomlynskyi National University of Mykolaiv, students’ attitudes toward distance learning in terms of their attitude to the platform used by the teacher affected their creativity. <strong>Conclusion</strong>. The main implication of the study is that educators should pay more attention to the platform of distance learning they use to teach students remotely. Understanding that students’ attitudes toward the necessity to study remotely may decrease their creativity, teachers can redirect remote learning toward blended learning and combining traditional and distance forms of learning to support the high level of student creativity.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Kateryna Glubochenko Techniques for creating and printing historical architectural artifacts in 3D 2023-04-06T21:34:08+03:00 Ihor Hevko Olha Potapchuk Iryna Lutsyk Viktoria Yavorska Viktoriia Tkachuk <p>The authors outline a technique for creating and printing three-dimensional models that can be used for graphic reconstruction of old architectural objects. An illustration of the sequence of implementation of the methodology is the creation of a model of the Parochial Cathedral of St. Mary. To reveal the implementation of the methodology, the authors demonstrate the sequence of execution of the stages of architectural-spatial modeling: analysis, construction, design, printing of the model. The analytical stage of designing the model of the cathedral was carried out on the basis of archival photographs and drawings. A stereogram miniature of the destroyed cathedral was used to create a three-dimensional model. Measurement of image parallax serves as the basis for reconstruction of the configuration of a spatial object. The stages of project implementation are defined. The methods of modeling using 3DS Max tools and preparing the model for 3D printing in Cura are presented.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Igor Hevko, Olha Potapchuk, Iryna Lutsyk, Viktoria Yavorska, Viktoriia Tkachuk Development of students' critical thinking abilities through active literary analysis approaches 2023-04-06T21:34:05+03:00 Svitlana Kovpik <p>The topic of the essay is how to cultivate critical thinking through literary works. It stands for a variety of analytical, research, and cognitive techniques meant to stimulate mental processes while reading and understanding literary texts. Additionally, it emphasizes the active literary analysis techniques that foster critical thinking in students, such as event analysis, fishbone structures, and socionist analysis. The study's findings demonstrated that today's openness in literary education permits a variety of methods and resources for examining the linguistic and fictional "fabric" of literary texts.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Svitlana Kovpik Managing the development of competitive professional training in vocational educational institutions 2023-04-06T21:34:02+03:00 Larysa Sergeieva Tatiana Stoychik <p>Globalization-inspired significant transformation processes in Ukraine necessitate a reevaluation of educational goals, objectives, and imperatives. The training system must consider the overall context of actions and effects while preparing a competitive specialist as part of the educational process in vocational (vocational-technical) educational institutions. The goal of this article is to analyze the current state of development of vocational (vocational-technical) education in Ukraine and the network of institutions of vocational (vocational-technical) education, while also identifying issues that need to be resolved in the training of professionals and factors that affect the quality of a competitive specialist's training. A set of theoretical and empirical methodologies were used to examine the current state of preparation, and a number of issues that impede the process of assuring the quality of training of a competitive specialist were discovered. A set of questionnaires was developed to study the current state of preparation, and within the framework of a pedagogical experiment, questionnaires were administered to entrants, educators, graduates, pedagogical workers, heads of vocational (vocational-technical) education institutions in Ukraine's regions, and employers, and the questionnaire results were analyzed.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Larysa Sergeieva, Tatiana Stoychik How can we encourage students to manage their own learning? 2023-04-06T21:33:59+03:00 Liudmyla Bilousova Larisa Kolgatina Oleksandr Kolgatin <p>The report investigates several methods of managing a student's educational activity. The educational discipline "Practicum of problem solving in informatics" has been chosen for students in their third year of study, future informatics teachers, in order to realize pedagogical conditions of computer-oriented management of students' educational activity. The major aim behind building the courseware was to move away from direct management and toward co-management, subsidiary management, and self-management. The information and communication educational environment is built on the Moodle learning management system platform. Moodle's Workshop components were critical in managing students' instructional engagement. Our educational observation and assessment results demonstrated the efficacy of the proposed technique. On the basis of the experimental results, it was also demonstrated that pupils lacked competency in time management and reflection.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Liudmyla Bilousova, Larisa Kolgatina, Oleksandr Kolgatin
