Conditions of eefective social interaction of students of younger classes during distance learning

Keywords: social interaction, conditions, distance learning, students of younger classes


The development of social interaction skills is important in elementary school age, because the ability to cooperate, communicate, control and express one`s feelings, make compromises, oveercome difficulties, etc. is a guarantee for the further realization of the individual in life. Unfortunately, in modern realities, in connection with the martial law, younger-schoolchildren in most regions of Ukraine do not have the opportunity to be in daily "live" communication with peers and teachers, where social interaction skills are actively developed. The distance learning format with online lessons raises a number of pedagogical and psychological problems associated with a decrease in the effectiveness of interaction between teachers and students, students among themselves, which negatively affects the development of social interaction skills. In this context, new challenges arise for teachers (as well as far parents).
