Using of Imitational Teaching Technologies in the Process of Future Labour Specialists Professional Training

Keywords: educational training technologies; methods of teaching; game interaction; staging of the simulation training technology; active teaching methods; vocational training.


The objective of this abstract was to determine the features of the using of the imitational technologies in the educational process of labor protection specialists. The theoretical (scientific literature analysis, modeling of specific situations, synthesis and comparison, evaluation and synthesis of collected facts) and empirical (observation, questioning, testing, questioning, conversation, problem solving, game interaction) analyzing methods were used as the main ones. The features of the active teaching methods using were determined. The experience of their implementation in the educational process is discussed. It is proved that the interpersonal interaction of students in the process of vocational training contributes to very many important things. Such things are: the effective formation of skills for emergencies forecasting at military and construction objects, social and educational institutions, industrial enterprises of various forms of ownership; the development of life strategies in order to minimize these destructive influences; the development of adequate measures to prevent possible emergencies etc. The experience of the «Accident at the enterprise» simulation technology using is discussed. An algorithm is proposed which consists of the next stages for the implementation of educational technology: the definition of a goal; the necessary material and equipment selection; the familiarization with the simulation problem content; the normative base of business activity studying; the creation of the investigation expert accident commission; an analysis of the materials received and the investigation of the root causes that led to an accident; the reveal of the officials who committed violations; the development of recommendations for elimination of the revealed violations; summing up and issues discussing. It is important to take into account that the simulation training technologies are the most effective when students acquire future professional activity experience, and analyze the possible variants of activity in the industrial, educational and social spheres. The author notes that the studying of the essential training technologies simulation features provided an opportunity to determine the main advantages of their use in the practice of future labor specialists training.
