Abstract

The article reveals the analysis of the current state of quality of school education in Ukraine based on the participation of Ukrainian students in international studies of the quality of education and the surveys among parents, students, and employers. We observe certain contradictions between the expectations of the society regarding students’ training in general secondary education institutions and the reality due to graduates’ unpreparedness to perform tasks involving the integration of theoretical and practical knowledge, its use to clarify the phenomena occurring in the world, knowledge transfer in new conditions and its practical application generating own ways of knowledge realization based on the analysis of the available facts. The thesis is substantiated that it is reasonable to introduce educational and pedagogical innovations in order to resolve the existing contradictions between the theory and practice of educational activities and the requirements of the society to the education system. The positive and negative aspects of the traditional education system are identified; the term “innovation” is analyzed. We also focus on the importance to comply with the system while organizing and managing innovation activities in the educational institution. We emphasize on the necessity to take into account certain contradictions that teachers face in their practice: the inconsistency between traditional methods of teaching and educating students and modern requirements for education; limited training time and speed of updating information; a particular teacher’s unpreparedness to implement innovations at the appropriate level; innovators’ desire to update the educational process and conservative colleagues’ opponency, etc. In order to solve these issues, it is proposed to carry out a number of measures during the training of applicants for higher education, who are future teachers, and during teachers’ advanced training courses: to include the disciplines that contain information about pedagogical innovation in the content of curricula and programs; to introduce innovative methods and forms of training such as dialogic, diagnostic, active, interactive, distance, computer, training, project, etc; to recommend combining seamlessly innovative methods and classical, traditional ones, as well as selecting thoughtfully and harmoniously different methods for each discipline and each lesson depending on their purpose and specificity; to develop teachers’ personal attitudes; to focus on the need for joint design of the educational process; to promote changing the functions of interpersonal communication between a teacher and students.
