THE TEACHER'S ELECTRONIC CARTOGRAPHIC ONLINE PLATFORM AS A MODERN TOOL AND RESOURCE FOR STUDYING GEOGRAPHY
Keywords:teacher’s electronic cartographic online platform, interactive map, educational electronic guide, study of geography, distance learning
This article examines the use of information and communication technologies in teaching and learning geography. The realities of modern educational process in Ukraine, in particular distance learning and military events, force Ukrainian teachers to look for opportunities for remote interaction between teachers and students. Taking into account that teachers are increasingly turning to the electronic form of providing educational material to students, an example of the application of an innovative approach to the study of geography, namely the use of WEB-mapping capabilities, is given. Attention is focused on the use of a new type of a learning tool to help all participants of the educational process − an online platform for studying geography and history. In order to provide students with high-quality electronic content in a cartographic form, it is proposed to create a so-called “Teacher’s Electronic Cartographic Online Platform”. The staff of the State Research and Production Enterprise “Cartography”, on the resources of which the “Teacher’s Electronic Cartographic Online Platform” functions, managed to initiate the process of its creation and lay the foundations for the functioning of these types of electronic educational resources. The teacher’s cartographic online platform is presented as a set of modern electronic educational cartographic guides, posters and interactive maps. The presented online platform was approved, tested and received numerous subscribers in the time of the global pandemic and war. The purpose of this publication is a detailed analysis of the content and description of the principles of functioning of the teacher’s electronic cartographic online platform, a study of its advantages over traditional manuals in organizing and conducting geography education. Pedagogical possibilities and methods of studying geography based on the presented online platform are revealed. The general features of the design of electronic materials in such platform are described. This publication also visualizes the interface of the online platform being created and gives an example of designing interactive maps in it. Prospects for the development of the teacher's electronic cartographic online platform and filling it with new content are given.
