A qualitative theoretical analysis and comparison are made with a study of higher education quality assessment across Ukraine during the war in 2022 (\textit{N} = 12019). The article analyzes the tools and structure of student feedback on the evaluation of the educational process. The undergraduate and graduate programs are modified based on the analysis of this data. In the Ukrainian higher education space, the National Qualifications Framework requirements for each specialty have been under development since 2014. The National Qualifications Framework developed a list of interdisciplinary competencies that should be transferred to academic courses. According to the Ukrainian higher education standard, universities must provide empirical evidence that their students actually acquire these competencies. Baseline data on the assessment of the quality of online education by student teachers during the war in Ukraine is presented using the case study of the Kriviy Rih State Pedagogical University (\textit{N} = 688). Further modifications of the questionnaire to assess the quality of teaching in order to improve data-driven decision-making and testing ethics are proposed.</p> Kateryna Bondar Olena Shestopalova Vita Hamaniuk Vyacheslav Tursky Copyright (c) 2023 Kateryna Bondar, Olena Shestopalova, Vita Hamaniuk, Vyacheslav Tursky https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-03-21 2023-03-21 10 346 365 10.55056/cte.564 Economic analysis of factors associated with education and employment https://acnsci.org/journal/index.php/cte/article/view/565 <p>The purpose of the research is to determine and analyze the current situation in the Georgian economy, labor market requirements, existing workforce structure, main challenges and trends. Important studies were conducted, within the framework of which market requirements were analyzed, consultations were held with experts in the field, employers, representatives of the Center for the Development of the Quality of Education; The present situation of supply and demand in the educational market is studied and analyzed. Qualitative and quantitative studies were also conducted, within the framework of which the following were identified: the compatibility of higher education programs with the market requirements, the inclusion of practical components in the educational process, the relationship between higher educational institutions and students, and the processes of interaction between education and the labor market. We think that the promotion of professional education will definitely lead us to the desired results, both from the point of view of the economy of Georgia and the general situation in the country. There is simply a need for more involvement from the state and, accordingly, more properly conducted measures, raising the level of awareness in society and creating all the prerequisites in order to change the attitude towards vocational schools as positively as possible. All this will eventually become a contributing factor for improving the level of education or the economic situation. The study concludes with findings and suggestions, which cover the issues facing the Georgian labor market and the labor force demand vision. The examination of the influence of higher education on employment and income in Georgia demonstrates that the investment in higher education yields a discernible return at this point, but the human capital developed in the higher education system is still not being employed efficiently in the country.</p> George Abuselidze Gia Zoidze Copyright (c) 2023 George Abuselidze, Gia Zoidze https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-03-21 2023-03-21 10 366 379 10.55056/cte.565 Enhancing out-of-class independent learning in a cloud-based information and communication learning environment: insights from students of a pedagogical university https://acnsci.org/journal/index.php/cte/article/view/555 <p>This paper addresses the challenges associated with students’ out-of-class independent work in an information and communication learning environment that relies on cloud technologies.

In these works, students not only study the structure and features of special equipment, but also acquire practical skills in working with the tool. The purpose of the article is to present our own experience of developing and using in the educational process a mobile application for teaching micrometer measurements during the relevant remote laboratory work in the disciplines ``Interchangeability, Standardization and Technical Measurements'' and ``Physics''. The literature analysis showed that ICT is widely used in the educational process in higher education, but computer programs and mobile applications are usually developed for secondary school disciplines, so there was a need to develop an information program for teaching students in distance learning, in particular during laboratory work. In order to teach students to work with a micrometer during distance learning, we have developed a mobile application. The process of developing the application included modeling the micrometer in the CAD system, creating training scenes in the Unity game engine and writing scripts to fully immerse students in the learning process. The mobile application developed by us consists of three parts: theoretical, educational and practical. In the theoretical part, students learn the structure and principles of working with a micrometer. The training part is developed in the form of a video lesson of working with the equipment. The practical part contains an electronic model of the micrometer and allows you to make measurements. Thus, during distance learning using the developed application, the percentage of qualitative success of students in laboratory work on the topic ``Measuring parts with a micrometer'' increased by 7.3\% compared to the same period of distance learning without the use of this application.</p> Oleksandr V.

For a successful existence in society, a person needs the most important skill - the ability to communicate with other people. The main part of the information a person transmits through speech. The normal development of children necessarily includes the mastery of coherent speech. Speech is not an innate skill for people, and children learn it on their own. Speech defects can cause the development of complexes in a child. Therefore, it is very important to eliminate them at an early age. So, the problem of determining speech defects in children today is a very urgent problem for parents, speech therapists and psychologists. Modern information technologies can help in solving this problem. The paper provides an analysis of the literature, which showed that models of CNN can be successfully used for this. But the results that are available today have not been applied to speech in Ukrainian. Therefore, it is important to develop and study models and methods of convolutional neural networks to identify violations in the speech of children. The paper describes a mathematical model of oral speech disorders in children, the structure of a convolutional neural network and the results of experiments. The results obtained in the work allow to establish one of the speech defects: dyslexia, stuttering, difsonia or dyslalia with recognition results of 77-79%.</p> Olha Pronina Olena Piatykop Copyright (c) 2023 Olha Pronina, Olena Piatykop https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-03-21 2023-03-21 10 153 166 10.55056/cte.554 Exploring modern trends in developing a digital educational environment for university: A case study of Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatiuk National Pedagogical University https://acnsci.org/journal/index.php/cte/article/view/545 <p>This article delves into the contemporary tendencies shaping the development of digital educational environments in universities and proposes a model for their implementation in pedagogical institutions.

Please see: <a href="https://doi.org/10.55056/cte.426">Retraction of published article due to the author’s proposal - 4 June 2023</a></p> <p>The article describes the dynamic "quality of education" system as an object of modeling with initial data, system parameters, control parameters, disturbing parameters and output parameters. Drawing analogies in the description of a dynamic system as applied to intangible objects allows obtaining a detailed description of the factors regarding the internal and external influence on a dynamic system and predicting the reaction of this system to a change in the elements of power. When describing the quality of education system, one should consider the relationship between its socio-economic impact and the following properties: purposefulness of the system; system hierarchy; interdependence between the system and the external environment; the level of autonomy and openness; system reliability; dimension of the system. Based on the data on the description of the methods of black, gray and white boxes, an algorithm for the transition between models for the quality of education system was formed. The description of the system is carried out by moving from the black to the gray box model, and then to the white box. Each of the models can be self-sufficient and satisfactorily describe a set of input and output parameters. However, the degree of determinism of the description process increases with the transition from the previous model to the next.</p> Artem Artyukhov Iurii Volk Nadiia Artyukhova Dastan Ospanov Dinara Ospanova Volodymyr Shablystyi Vita Hordiienko Copyright (c) 2023 Artem Artyukhov, Iurii Volk, Nadiia Artyukhova, Dastan Ospanov, Dinara Ospanova, Volodymyr Shablystyi, Vita Hordiienko https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-03-21 2023-03-21 10 85 95 10.55056/cte.547 Evaluation of the system "quality of education" and its socio-economic impact: analogies with software testing https://acnsci.org/journal/index.php/cte/article/view/548 <p>This article has been retracted.

In the research, using secondary data, public documents and content analysis methods, current changes in the education system are studied and analyzed. In addition, in order to discuss the current situation in the Georgian educational market and to study the factors of the internationalization process in Georgia, a PESTEL analysis was conducted, within the framework of which the political, economic, social, technological, ecological and legitimate factors determining the attractiveness of Georgia for foreign students were identified. The topic is relevant because the rhythm of modern life depends on transfer skills. And the current events encourage and make inevitable the emergence of young people who can use their knowledge independently in the economy and culture. By teaching effective transferable skills, it is possible not only to correct an un-sustainable situation, but also to achieve strong and stable demand, productivity and economic growth. At the end of the paper, the main conclusions and recommendations for higher educational institutions and students are presented. Taking into account the received research results will make a positive contribution to the development of an effective state policy of university education. In the post-pandemic period, this is directly related to the acceleration of innovative processes in the country and the rational accumulation of economic wealth. </p> George Abuselidze Gia Zoidze Copyright (c) 2023 George Abuselidze, Gia Zoidze https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-03-21 2023-03-21 10 124 138 10.55056/cte.550 The management strategy in the educational institution during the crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic https://acnsci.org/journal/index.php/cte/article/view/551 <p>The research is devoted to the impact of the economic crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic on educational institutions. This impact is highlighted as two side processes, which appears due to the impact of economic crises on education and, from the other side, due to the inability of education to satisfy the demands of information society, as well as to predict the consequences of such impacts on the socio-economic sphere of society. The negative effect on education is overviewed from the perspective of reducing funding and reducing the number of participants in the educational process. At the same time there is an internal crisis in the education sector, which is developed through reducing the quality of education and lack of necessary forms of education. The purpose of the research is to analyse the ability of education to overcome the destructive effects of economic crises and the ability to change according to the needs of information society. The development of an anti-crisis management strategy in the educational institution during the crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic should target the most problematic components of the educational sphere: funding, number of participants and institutions, quality, and forms of education. That is why the strategy of anti-crisis management can be represented in three main components: virtualization, HR policy, branding. Thus, from scientific and theoretical perspectives the provided research can be a basis for transformation of education, which may be adapted to the need’s modern society. This strategy was successfully implemented during 2020-2021 years, and the results of which is represented in the research.</p> Yelyzaveta Mykhailova Nataliia Savina Ihor Tymoschuk Copyright (c) 2023 Yelyzaveta Mykhailova, Nataliia Savina, Ihor Tymoschuk https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-03-21 2023-03-21 10 139 152 10.55056/cte.551 Possibilities and limitations of social media in education processes during the pandemic: The teachers perspective https://acnsci.org/journal/index.php/cte/article/view/552 <p>The health emergency derived from the spread of COVID-19 led to the declaration of confinement for the protection of the population. During this temporary period, the educational centers of the Spanish state were forced to suspend face-to-face classes at all educational levels. To safeguard the teaching processes, educational centers and teachers relied on social media to continue their work. The objective of this study is to understand the possibilities and limitations of social media as the only means of communication in the educational and socialization processes of students from the perspective of teachers. The methodology used is based on the collection of data through a questionnaire distributed in the secondary education centers of the autonomous regions of the Basque Country and Navarra. The questionnaire was distributed electronically, respecting the anonymity of the teaching staff and the center in which they practice. The results reveal that the digital media the possibilities and limitations of these media in the teaching processes, showing that some of these are surmountable and others are not.</p> Laura Joana Papanikolopoulou Arco Copyright (c) 2023 Laura Joana Papanikolopoulou Arco https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-03-21 2023-03-21 10 315 325 10.55056/cte.552 Modelling of AGM-style doxastic operations in three-valued setting https://acnsci.org/journal/index.php/cte/article/view/553 <p>The goal of our work is to show how a theoretical approach to modeling of reasoning can be analyzed to identify controversial issues that reveal prospects for further research. We will consider one of the basic approaches to modeling of reasoning based on the concept of belief revision AGM, which is viewed as classical because it formulates the basic concepts of belief, introduces the main ways of representing beliefs, cognitive actions, systems of postulates for cognitive actions and the basic principles for constructing epistemic systems. However, this conceptual foundation raises many controversial issues that require further research, such as the problem of purity of the doxastic operations, the problem of primacy of the doxastic operations and the problem of connection between the doxastic operations. To find a possible solution to these controversial points, we will attempt to model the main ideas of AGM within the framework of standard consistent, and complete logic \L{}3. The basic principle of our translation is the scheme for constructing an epistemic theory proposed by G\"ardenfors, which is considered the basis of AGM. We use a strict three-valued logic formalism to constrain the functioning of doxastic operators and to test how they will function when trying to express the corresponding AGM postulates in a given system. It will allow us to approach the solution of the classical AGM problems or at least to present them from a different perspective. We consider the fundamental possibility of obtaining other doxastic operators in this way and also show how we can implement the minimality criterion for the contraction operator by combining several theorems of three-valued logic. The presented method of translating an informal conceptual scheme into formal logic is convenient for teaching students the basics of modeling and makes it possible to demonstrate the relationships and limitations of the modeled objects and processes.</p> Nadiia P.

Innovative projects using these technologies provide new opportunities for real-time human health monitoring. Such opportunities are also implemented using Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud computing technologies. In the study, we developed an application based on open APIs using smart gadgets and meteorological geographic information system in the process of generating a message about the dangers to human health associated with: the presence of pollen in the air (grass pollen, birch pollen and olive pollen) indicating the level of its concentration in the air; problems with air quality, if the air quality indicator exceeds the permissible standards. The addition of such functions expands the possibilities to provide timely information about potential risks and threats and, accordingly, is an "anthropo-geo-sensor-digital" prerequisite for effective decision-making, prevailing. The implementation of this IoT system has significant methodological and technological potential that can be used to improve the efficiency of Healthcare, both in extreme conditions and in conditions of sustainable existence. First of all, this is relevant during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The system we have developed can also be seen as one of the ways to innovate in Healthcare, in the educational process in institutions of higher education and in further scientific research on this topic. Further research in this area may be related to data processing in Healthcare systems based on machine learning, deep learning.</p> Oksana V. Klochko Vasyl M. Fedorets Maksym V. Mazur Yurii P.
