Simulation technique in the mathematical theory of learning

Abstract

Further development of theoretical pedagogy and the theory of learning is closely connected to the use of mathematical and digital techniques in learning process simulations. This article explores formal methods for studying a didactic system as well as difficulties in employing them. The author describes key stages of simulation development and presents a simulation of unrelated study material elements (using letters of the alphabet as an example). The charts show temporal changes in students’ knowledge and motivation. Research works on the mathematical theory of learning, and the analysis of semiformalized and semistructured systems, research into cognitive and simulation management, fuzzy logic and soft system methodology comprise the methodological framework for the study.

Fairy tales as a psychotherapeutic method to develop resilience in students with special needs

Abstract

This article addresses the use of fairy tale technique in psychotherapy used to develop resilience as a personal psychological trait in students with special needs. Using parables as literary references, the authors describe the process of producing mottos through semantic compression. Special attention is paid to techniques of identifying keywords and tacking questions. These techniques help to develop stable psychological attitudes in students with special needs. When used in psychotherapy, fairy tales affect the psychophysical condition of such students and contribute to resilience, i. e. greater control of one’s actions and more conscious attitude to risks and challenges.
