The article outlines the main theoretical aspects of the use of simulation computer simulation in physics classes in the institution of general secondary education, in particular, for the implementation of information and digital competence. The advantages and disadvantages of a computer experiment, in particular simulation models in the process of studying school physics, are determined. It is noted that the use of computer simulation models in the learning process approximates the subject of the study to real conditions, so students are actively participating in such training activities, have the opportunity to manage the course of the experiment, generate ideas, hypotheses and verify their correctness, learning to solve real problems, to express themselves as a person. It is proved that the use of technology simulation of phenomena and processes in training significantly increases motivation, and thus learning efficiency. The use of models in the learning process in physics allows you to highlight and display the most important for communication knowledge in phenomena that are often inaccessible to direct observation, to comprehend the essence of some physical phenomena. Modeling gives the teacher the opportunity to deeply disclose the contents of physical concepts in the lesson, acquaint students with the modern experimental physics base, reveal the importance of methods of studying physical phenomena and processes, equip the students with a system of physical knowledge in close connection with the methods of scientific research. It is noted that the peculiarity of using computer simulation models at the lessons of natural and mathematical disciplines is that they can be freely modified, thereby allowing students to demonstrate their creativity, while the knowledge, skills, skills gained during the process of working with simulation models, facilitate formation student as a person. It is noted that simulation models can be used not only for demonstration of phenomena, processes, laboratory works, but also for independent activity of a creative nature. The use of simulations by pupils to perform a virtual experiment enables not only to acquire a certain amount of knowledge in physics, but also to form a sufficient level of information and digital competence necessary for further training and professional activity. Using Internet resources, including simulations, is another opportunity for students to achieve the desired level of knowledge. The article analyzes the Phet resource developed by the University of Colorado, which presents virtual laboratories that demonstrate various processes and phenomena in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, geology and VirtuLab, the largest collection of virtual experiments.
