The goal of this study is to examine the views of academicians working in the preschool teaching department on the applicability of the distance education model in preschool education. The study was carried out in a ‘phenomenological’ pattern, which is a qualitative research pattern. The research group comprised eight academicians working in preschool teaching departments of state/foundation universities in Istanbul during the 2020–2021 academic period. The study results indicate that participants expressed more limitations than positive aspects of applying the distance education model in preschool education. It is observed that participants agree that children will face some limitations in socio-emotional development fields, but might be supported in the cognitive development field when the distance education model is applied in preschool education. It is also understood that participants do not have a common view on language development, motor development and self-care skills. Inner-service training for inexperienced teachers on distance education to inform them about distance education practices in preschool education is suggested. Keywords: Preschool education, distance education, academician, child, opinions.

The problem of this study is determining what types of studies involving mobile technology in the field of music education are carried out in Turkey and the analysis of these studies. The main objective of the study is to evaluate the mobile technology studies conducted in the field of music education in Turkey. The data obtained in the study were visualised using tables and the answers to the research questions were sought. From the data obtained in the study, it was observed that there were no scientific publications about mobile technologies in the music field before 2004. In line with these findings, it can be said that the number of academic studies on mobile technologies in music education has increased gradually in recent years. It has been suggested to increase the number of these studies and to implement music education programmes where music education processes are carried out with modern learning models. Keywords: Mobile learning, mobile technologies, music education, academic studies, Turkey.

The article deals with the main issues of digitalisation of Kazakhstan’s education as a key policy of the state. The ongoing reforms are based on the development of human capital. The purpose of this publication is to highlight the results of the theoretical and experimental parts of the study. The methods used in this paper include analysis of psychological, pedagogical, socio-economic and technical literature on the research problem comparatively. From the results, it is worth noting a new level of communication between the teacher and the student, which goes beyond the classical one. These include communication features such as WhatsApp, Zoom, Messenger, email and Instagram, among others. In this regard, improving digital literacy at all levels of the education system is becoming a priority. Some recommendations made are to fill the network with a variety of information and to use modern information and communication technologies to provide a whole range of tools for communication between teachers and students.

This paper analyses the cognitive characteristics and cognitive laws of freshmen students in learning the C programming language. We have built a spirally ascending complete curriculum theory knowledge system and a practical teaching model of experience–verification–exploration. The knowledge system is established through programming thinking from the perspective of computer systems, designed according to the teaching structure of knowledge construction and trained based on the engineering literacy with a new engineering background. The implementation of the teaching reform has achieved the expected results. The curriculum theory knowledge system is complete, and the practical teaching content is novel and rich. It has stimulated students’ learning enthusiasm and innovative consciousness, cultivated students’ professional qualities and helped to cultivate talents that meet the needs of the industry. Keywords: Programming language, perspective, computer systems, knowledge construction.

The study analyses the importance of non-verbal communication (NvC) for academic education process. From this perspective, we have emphasised how essential NvC is, what a competences ensemble is to the education process and that we must use it. Drawing from theory and practice, the paper proposes several didactic modalities, more attractive, which improve the students’ communicational and proactive competences, and their interest to learn. In addition, these didactical modalities contribute to developing positive students’ interactions, social collaborations, desire of knowing and working with others, which are different. Due to the importance of NvC, the paper proposes it as one of the best recommended strategies to develop communication between people, especially for people from different cultural spaces. Keywords: Learning, teaching strategies, communication competences, cultural communication, motivation.

This study aimed to examine science teachers’ opinions about online education during the pandemic period. In the research, phenomenological research, one of the qualitative research designs, was adopted. In the 2020–2021 academic year, 33 science teachers working in central and rural areas of Erzurum were studied. An online interview form was used as a data collection tool. The content analysis method was used in the analysis of the data. As a result, it can be said that, in addition to the disadvantages of online education, it provides convenience to teachers and students in various fields and has an advantage compared to face-to-face education. To facilitate the adaptation of teachers and students to online education, informative training can be provided, parents can be informed about the process and students can be supported in solving their problems. Keywords: Views, online education, teacher, pandemic, science teachers.

The constructive approach argues that cultural identity determines ethnicity through the dominance of social, political and economic factors. This approach was formed thanks to the theories of M. Weber, E. Durkheim and K. Marx. The purpose is to conduct a pedagogical study on the formation of information and cognitive competence of a multilingual personality of a student of the Aktobe Regional State University named after K. Zhubanov, 3 courses, pedagogical specialties. The research methodology is the theory of I.V. Leushina. The survey data showed the percentage of students that use various IT services for independent learning of foreign languages (audio podcasts, video podcasts) and various online applications of a general nature (LinguaLeo, Duolingo, etc.). The results revealed a fairly high motivation of students to use IT tools in foreign language classes. Within the framework of the formed educational competencies, recommended by the state standard of higher education of the Republic of Kazakhstan, it is necessary to highlight information and cognitive.

The aim of this article is to review the experiences of educational systems of different countries on using a competency-based approach (CBA) in their secondary schools. The historical development of CBA and the roles of using this approach in teaching and learning are also reviewed. Consequently, 8,296 published scholarly papers, books, reports and documents between 1985 and 2017 were found in the English language. The 14 selected articles from 2012 to 2020 have been revised and categorised based on the year of publication, country, purpose, method of study, sample and findings. Results of this review paper indicated that CBA can be a great approach to improve the teaching and learning process if teachers could reduce the barriers of its implementation. Therefore, this study recommends helping teachers in this matter through training and providing all needed resources, and then examining the new situation by future studies. Keywords: Competency-based, implementation, review, secondary, school.
