Information and Communication Technologies, tutor, tutor’s support, functions of tutor


There are a lot of significant structural changes in almost all higher educational institutions in Ukraine due to time requirements. Accession to a single European space, new educational standards requires the revision and expansion of the content of pedagogical activities, functions and roles implemented by educators. Students are granted the rights and opportunities for the most complete satisfaction of individual educational requests. There was a need to review the ideas about the content of teaching activities and the emergence of new positions. In recent years, scientists have been actively discussing the introduction the position of the tutor in the education system.

The term «tutor» came to us from classical universities in Great Britain and extended the notion of «teacher». Tutors became widespread, especially in the context of the gradual integration of Ukraine into the European educational space. Tutor is a historically established special pedagogical position that provides the development of individual educational programs, the potential of each student and prepares him for a changing life. Tutor controls not only student’s study, but also his behavior, way of life, attending classes, rest, appearance, etc.

Tutor while working with student transmits a variety of techniques and rules for mastering new knowledge. However, learning is impossible without the use of ICT. Therefore, it is not enough for tutor to use only traditional technologies of education and upbringing. After all, without the use of computer it is difficult to satisfy the individual requests of each student. So tutors need to know the possibilities of the Internet navigate the pedagogical network communities, use innovative pedagogical technologies to increase the students’ interest in learning and activating their cognitive activity. Indeed, nowadays it is difficult to imagine a learning process without the use of modern technology.

Thus, information and communication technologies should become reliable assistants of the tutor to the new conditions of life and professional activity in the information society. Application of information and communication technologies in tutoring practices is considered as an innovative approach in building the process of training and preparing students for professional activities. This is due to the fact that the computerization and application of modern information and communication technologies is an opportunity that will help to create a new system of education.

Information and communication technology at the university is not a trend, but a modern necessity. They must become an integral part of the educational process. Therefore, the modern tutor must be able to work with new means of education, at least in order to ensure one of the most important rights of the student − the right in qualitative education. Consequently, in the process of tutor’s support various information and communication technologies can be used to maximize the optimization of tutor activity.
