APPLICATION OF WEB PRESENTATIONS IN THE FUNCTION OF PRESCHOOL EDUCATION AND UPBRINGING QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
Education and education-related processes faced with the challenges imposed by rapid and unstoppable informational-communicational development bring along the need for all the levels of education, as well as teachers, as the agents creating and realizing it, respond to these challenges and prepare young people for life in constantly changing world. Constantly increasing changes reflected in other spheres of life have been an obstacle appearing as an impossibility to create clear picture of what the world will look like tomorrow.
Preschool teachers in kindergartens are, on the one hand, faced with the changes children are going through, and on the other hand, with the demands for lifelong learning, requiring them as professionals to be reflexive practitioners, who learn permanently and improve their practice.
The omnipresence of informational technologies in everyday life of children and adults undoubtedly imposes the need for teachers to possess necessary knowledge and skills in order to purposefully use advantages offered by these technologies in the work with children. The paper deals with the design of internet sites and software which should address these needs and challenges of contemporary preschool education and upbringing. Apart from the possibility to offer what should be learnt, i.e. the content, they should also have impact on how and to what an extent certain contents should be learnt, introducing completely new methods and techniques of learning and teaching.
