My name is Shaban Roman Petrovich. I am the author of the integrated course "Global Education XXI" and the New Center for Educational Technologies "Step."
My view is that education should be practical, and - in the shortest possible time, should help a person become a useful member of the community in which he lives; and teach it to perform socially useful activities.
Therefore, well-thought-out short-term courses, in my opinion, have an advantage over many years of study at traditional universities. Of course, after graduating from university, a person gains a lot of knowledge. But, unfortunately, many of them end up being overly theoretical and fruitless in today's rapidly changing world.
After graduating from the historical faculty of Drohobych State Pedagogical University in 2013, I decided not to stop there, but to continue self-education. And he realized that even traditional educational fields can be taught in a completely new way, and typical curricula must be adapted, first of all, to the requirements of today. After graduation, young people must first learn to adapt and work (or run a business) in today's information society.
(In addition, learning should be interesting. Today's level of science and technology allows not only to "meet" via Skype or zoom. But also to use, during the broadcast - technology "virtual tours", google maps, as well as many bright videos and illustrations).
Competence is not just knowledge. This is a kind of "dynamic combination" of knowledge, practical skills and qualities - necessary for further "socialization" of the student.
That's why I decided to start developing the Integrated Course "Global Education of the XXI Century".
