Keywords: digitalization of society, trends, educational communications, pedagogical forecasting; pedagogical experiment, digitalization of educational process


The issue of the use of educational communications in university students’ training and prospects of their development in the digital society have been analyzed. The methodological basis for the study of prognostic aspects of modernization of educational communications is the combination of systematic, axiological, cultural and individual-oriented approaches. The aim of the paper is to carry out theoretical analysis of the issue and experimentally confirm the effectiveness of educational communications in psychological, pedagogical, social, economic and technological aspects. The analysis of modern philosophic and pedagogical studies of Ukrainian and foreign scholars demonstrated that the development and innovative use of educational communications is influenced by globalization and integrative processes, dynamic changes on international, national and regional labour markets, intensive implementation of informational support, rapid development of commercial activity and the sphere of educational services, including online services. The pedagogical experiment carried out at the National Aviation University, Ukraine, has verified the effectiveness of integrated use of educational communications in distant education. The result of the study proved that the development, modernization and use of educational communications are determined by the following factors: flexibility of educational communications and their orientation towards society requirements; their forward-looking character and focus on dynamic changes in all social, economic and industrial spheres, taking into account digitalization and new educational requirements of different segments of population connected with it; modernization of teaching content, forms, technologies and methods in different educational subsystems; equal access to quality education for all segments of population in the country. The approaches to pedagogical forecasting, development, modernization and the use of educational communications on national, regional and field levels have been offered. It has been found out that upgrading educational communications in the digitized society requires modernization of legislation in view of foreign and domestic innovative experience, increasing demands of employers, educational establishments of different levels of accreditation, state employment service and educational requirements of different segments of population.
