The study’s relevance lies in addressing the growing need for training primary school teachers to effectively incorporate information technologies in their teaching of natural science. The purpose of the study is to contribute to the improvement of students’ training in the theoretical, practical, and methodological aspects of incorporating information technologies in teaching natural science.
The main criteria for the professional development of students are motivational-targeted, cognitive, technological, and reflexive-prognostic.
As a result of the research, a methodological toolkit was developed by the authors, according to which a psychological and pedagogical diagnosis of the indicated readiness of students was carried out (“Scale of readiness of the future teacher of primary classes for educational cooperation (motivational and goal criterion)”, “Dictionary of concepts (cognitive criterion)”. “Analysis of completed works (technological criterion)”, “Self-assessment of completed tasks” (reflexive and prognostic).
In conclusion, the results of the study make it possible to divide primary school teachers into high, sufficient and low levels of readiness with the corresponding characteristics of quality measurements, which opens up prospects for the development of appropriate effective measures to improve the quality of student training for the use of information and communication technologies in theoretical, practical, and methodological aspects.
