Abstract

This article discusses some aspects of the formation of cognitive interest engineering students through interactive GIS technologies. Cognitive interest acts as a valuable educational activity motive. Inquisitiveness, curiosity, willingness to cognitive activity, "thirst for knowledge" – are all different expressions of the cognitive orientation of the individual, based on the cognitive interest, defining a positive attitude to the world and to the process of knowing it. Strengthen educational interest of students – it means teaching them to work creatively and independently. To achieve this possible, making learning in context-playing activity. herefore, the future professional activity specialist can be successfully modeled using simulations, role playing and geosystems. Prime examples of which are presented in our research work: role-play "EkoKrivbass-1", virtual laboratory "EkoKrivbass-2", simulation game "EkoKrivbass-3" an interactive geographic information system "EkoKrivbass-4". They occupy in this respect and even their respective unique place which is mainly due to a clear reproduction of the processes of generation, understanding and resolution of crises and conflicts concerning the ecological state of the environment in the industrial region of the Dnieper. Cognitive interest is expressed in the desire of the student engineer to receive the missing professionally relevant information, in the experience of positive emotions in the course of solving the problem, in an effort to find, in cooperation with other students outside the box solution, the desire to learn new methods and means of occupation. Using interactive GIS technologies involving beyond their own training texts by correlating the received information with the situations of future professional activity, provides a subjective "residence" student experience of professional conduct. In order to form cognitive interest in our experiment for understanding and mastering the content to create a positive emotional background and conditions, understanding the theoretical and practical significance of the studied material. Thus, cognitive interest – it's a deep personal commitment and sustained learning motive. He creates the most favorable conditions for the formation and development of a new style of mental work, the manifestations of the creative personality, abilities, talents. Obviously, the ecological conditions of the region where students live have an impact on the content of their activities and interests. The training system specific knowledge with a regional perspective based on residence arouse interest and, therefore, learning can be organized according to the actual needs of students. In this case, the purpose-built educational objectives through interactive GIS technologies will be addressed through the initiation and growth of the activity, as discussed, there are situations in the real world of students. Education based on information technology, involving regional material contributes to the socio-cultural identity in the natural environment, and, in addition to the formation of information competence, direct knowledge and skills in core subjects, can influence the formation of the moral potential of the individual, national pride, preservation and development of folk culture. The content of learning objectives that reflect the characteristics and problems of the region where students live, has a significant impact on cognitive interest, and hence on the academic content through interactive GIS technologies.
