Abstract

The article characterizes the possibility of using mobile applications with ecological content for forming the students’ environmental competence in general secondary education institutions. It is noted that such applications can be used as game moments with environmental subtext. During the martial law in Ukraine, such applications are necessary for understanding the basics of ecological nature management, observing the rules of environmental behavior, economical use of natural resources, understanding the importance of nature conservation for the sustainable development of society. The purpose of the article is to study the use of mobile applications of natural content for forming the environmental competence of high school students. The tasks of the research are defined: to analyze the state of development of the problem of using mobile applications in the educational process; to characterize the types of mobile applications that should be used in the educational process; to reveal the peculiarities of using nature-based mobile applications for forming environmental competence. A set of general scientific theoretical and empirical methods was used for comprehensive knowledge of the subject of research and solving the tasks. Theoretical methods: analysis of pedagogical, methodical and biological literature made it possible to form the theoretical positions of the research. Empirical methods: studying the results of students’ activities, observing the educational process, conversations with biology teachers and students, and a pedagogical experiment. Using mobile educational applications in the biology lesson, depending on the type of program, determines the possibility of their use at lessons in terms of learning new material, in terms of practicing and consolidating acquired knowledge, as well as for independent work and self-checking. Formed educational activities provide students with the opportunity to carry out cognitive activities independently, set educational goals, search for and use ways to achieve them, monitor and evaluate the process and results of activities. Based on the results obtained during the pedagogical experiment, it was concluded that the students of the experimental class have a higher level of environmental competence, that is, they are more knowledgeable in theoretical and practical issues, compared to the students of the control class. The demonstrated results prove the effectiveness of using mobile applications in the process of teaching students biology.
