THE INFORMATION AND REFERENCE SYSTEM ON RARE AND ENDANGERED SPECIES OF ANIMALS AS A COMPUTER TOOL FOR THE FORMATION OF FUTURE ECOLOGISTS DIGITAL COMPETENCY

Keywords: information help system, information competency of future ecologists, information technologies, computer and information training, Informatics and Systemology

Abstract

The article describes the main aspects of the creation of the information system of educational appointment "Little Zoo", focused on the solution of problems of computer and information training for future ecologists in modern higher education. On the basis of the analysis of similar web resources, the main and additional requirements for the information resource of animals, which take into account the shortcomings of existing information resources, are formulated. The main stages of the "Little Zoo" information and reference system development process are considered. The project was implemented by means of the Python programming language, the Django framework, the Adobe Photoshop graphics editor. Thanks to the resource users will be able to search for a rare species of animal according to one or more characteristics. The system also provides for the possibility of students learning materials by sorting articles about animals in the right order. The structure of the MySQL database for the informational system and the description of the fields of its main tables were given. The chart of precedents concerning the roles characteristic of the Little Zoo system (the administrator, the registered user, the unregistered user), the chart of cooperations for adding article to the system database, the chart of the sequences in the system, the chart of conditions of search are presented. The description of the functional of the information-reference system is presented. System allows the registered users to add own articles, to expand the database of the resource. Information system is successfully used at the Kherson State University in studying the discipline "Informatics and Systemology" by students of specialties 101 "Ecology" and 014 "Secondary education (Biology)", as well as in studying the discipline "Information technologies and technical means of correctional training" by students of specialty 016 "Special Education". It is directed to implementation of computer and information training for students not only through consideration of theoretical definitions, techniques and technologies with certain equipment and software, but first of all through application of IT-tools in professional activity at the level of modern and perspective requirements.
