Abstract

The information educational space has become a new organizational and pedagogical system of educational institutions with the potential of open and remote access to educational resources, pedagogical staff’s innovative activities, constant monitoring of students’ knowledge, skills, and interaction of the participants of the educational process. One of the ways of civil protection specialists’ training, retraining and advanced training system modernization is the introduction of innovative pedagogical, information and communication technologies into the educational process. 

However, it should be noted that the programs launched at both state and departmental levels did not become mobilizing measures that would allow to avoid the dispersion of intellectual, material and especially financial resources in the context of the formation of a targeted information educational space by focusing efforts on intellectual scientific and pedagogical potential of the educational system. In such a situation, haphazard and normatively unregulated dissemination of teachers’ personal and educational establishments’ websites on altruistic principles using cloud technologies has become quite widespread.

The educational institutions of departmental subordination, including the ones in civil protection, as mentioned in the Strategy for reforming the State Emergency System for 2017-2020, did not overlook this problem. The National Strategy for the Education Development until 2021, approved by the Decree of the President of Ukraine dated 26.06.2013 No. 344/2013, is directed to remedy this situation, but the measures implemented are still more declared than stimulating and not aimed at initiating a mechanism that would unite the pedagogical community within the state target project for national information educational space creation. Strategic documents and national education projects are designed, first of all, to support the innovative activity of pedagogical teams and to prepare teachers for work in the information society. Organized by the Human Resources Department, the competition “Creating and Developing Together” became an effective motivational tool for attracting the SESU researchers and pedagogical staff of higher education institutions.

Developing the information educational system based on the systematic approach makes it possible to identify the main functional elements in its structure in order to model and describe the processes of each individual element, as well as in their process-functional interrelation.

In the paper, the information educational environment is introduced in a purely pragmatic format to train civil protection specialists. It represents a set of artificially created situations which provide basis for educational information transfer and assimilation, professional knowledge accumulation, skills and competences development and, at the same time, the development of personal qualities of this integrated profession.
