An individual approach in pedagogical practice
Everybody keeps saying about the need to ensure an INDIVIDUAL APPROACH TO A CHILD. At the same time, an individual approach does not contradict the principle of team working. It is confirmed by scientific research: "I - image" of the individual is formed precisely because “WE - image” exist.
To implement the individual approach in the framework of group work, appropriate TOOLS assisting the teacher, the psychologist and the head of the educational institutes are needed. The innovative educational platform Smart School Pro, the main idea of which is to create a so-called STUDENT-CENTERED education model is such a tool.
A compulsory element of this model is ANALYTICS. It gives an understanding of the objective capabilities of each child, reflects the dynamics of his/her development and helps to evaluate the effectiveness of the educational process. For this purpose, we have developed a TESTING of the child's psychophysical development and ASSESSING of the educational processes.
When implementing an individual approach in training and education, it becomes important not only to consider the psychophysical factors, but also the special requirements for the use of educational and didactic material. For this purpose, the LESSON CONSTRUTION which helps to find the necessary material quickly and prepare the tasks for children from the KNOWLEDGE BASE elements, has been created. As a result, each child is taught considering the zone of proximal development. At the same time, the general logic of the curriculum of an educational institution is not being violated.
The model described above significantly changes the requirements to the arrangement of the EDUCATIONAL PROCESS at the kindergarten / school. Understanding that the structure of the children’s team is complicated, requires MOBILITY in organizing activity, forming children's groups for various tasks, and the ability of the team to transform into working groups flexibly without losing work efficiency. Also, a clear and well-established communication is required. Up-to-date tools and technologies are designed to ensure these processes.
Innovative Educational Platform Smart School Pro has been developed IN RESPONSE TO MODERN CHALLENGES TO THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND THE FIELD IN GENERAL.
