Abstract

The article considers the definition of “digital educational environment”. It is noted that when choosing and using the online tools, a foreign language teacher should evaluate the pedagogical value of digital online tools in order to find out how they comply with the principles of foreign language learning. Teachers are encouraged to use a list of foreign language learning principles offered by Cambridge University's Language and Pedagogics team, such as: the principle of using a variety of teaching materials; the principle of positive involvement; the principle of individual learning; the principle of available feedback; the principle of autonomous learning; the principle of meaningful communication; principle of active learning. It is emphasized that this approach will allow deciding on the use of certain online tools and teaching materials during the educational process. An overview of a number of online tools that can be used by a foreign language teacher to develop the digital educational environment of secondary schools, the formation of foreign language communication skills and information and digital competence, has been made. The online tools of Вusuu.com, ChatterPix, NewspaperClub ARTHR, ThingLink, Zoom, VEO are analyzed, considering their use for students and teachers, offering teachers some ideas for using tools during the lessons, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of using online tools by the teacher. It is concluded that, during the educational process, foreign language teachers can use not only specialized tools, but also other digital tools that will be useful and effective in many subjects and will help to develop not only competence in communication in foreign languages, but also information and communication skills of the students. Foreign language teachers will use communication tools to work collaboratively with the students through digital technology. This will allow students to better: seek, understand, select, process, edit and create new content; demonstrate creativity, critical thinking and research skills; manage changes and handle complex situations; to develop self-esteem.
