Blended Learning Opportunities in Ukrainian IT Public Education

Open access

Abstract

Based on previous surveys the usage of ICT and blended learning is at a low level in Ukraine. To catch up with the European average, it is important to familiarize the students and teachers with blended learning in the secondary school. The information technology classes provide the best opportunity to introduce the blended learning, because they are well equipped with computing devices. This choice is positively affected by the new Ukrainian IT curriculum. The aim of this paper is to introduce the available options for blended learning in Ukrainian secondary IT education. By examining the curriculum, the possibilities of using the online space in the educational process has been determined. The blended learning methodology has been tried in practice as well.
