Abstract

The article reveals a relevance of a future primary education specialists training for using the digital learning tools in their professional activity. After analyzing a large number of scientific papers devoted to this problem, the authors identified similar approaches to its solution in different countries of the world and mainly low and medium level of development of the readiness of future primary school teachers to use digital learning tools in their professional activity. In this connection, the article presents the results of an empirical study on the state of operational-activity and projective components of the future primary education bachelors and masters’ readiness to use digital learning tools in professional activity and the dynamics of development of this personal phenomenon under traditional conditions of educational process at bachelors and master's degrees. The research methodology was consisted in the gradual applying of the quasi-professional activity technology and the method of expert assessments, as well as the subsequent distribution of respondents according to the level of readiness’ components development: intuitively-receptive, reproductive, productive, research-creative. The results of the study were subjected to quantitative and qualitative analysis and the authors came to the conclusion that with the current system of a future primary school teachers’ vocational training, the level of development of the operational-activity and projective components of their readiness for using digital learning tools is unsatisfactory. In addition, the authors found that reproductive samples prevails among the methods and techniques of students’ working with presentation slides: the informational methods, structural and graphic techniques of presenting information; respondents not well orients in the types of slides, as well as in alternative Power Point software; future bachelors and masters focused on using only graphic and textual information in presentations; in educational e-guides future specialists in primary education mainly used animation and creolization of the text, there are practically no infographics, interactive posters, educational comics, tasks on online educational platforms.
