Rumyana Papancheva, Krasimira Dimitrova

Abstract

The information society we are living in is looking for new ways to help the new generation in the process of forming skills and knowledge about the use of new technologies. One of the main accents is on the abilities of forming skills for reflection, critical thinking, evaluation and self-evaluation. To form and create successful personalities who will manage to develop their talent and to implement their abilities in complex way, a systematic and purposeful education has to be proposed. Earlier the education process starts, more real the desired results will be obtained. The paper considers the constructivism’s ideas of reforming the learning process. A model of technologies integrated learning in the Primary school that was approbated in the pedagogical practice is described. A way of forming skills for reflection and assessment – skills so important for one to have really successful realization in life – is proposed.
