Abstract


The article considers the problem of the readiness of future specialists in the field of socionomics who will use information technologies in their professional activity. The analysis of references in the field of our research revealed that the effecient intoduction of information technologies in the sphere of socionomics depends on the readiness of specialists for innovation activity, as such activity is one of important components of their professional readiness. We determined the components of readiness of the specialists in the field of socionomics (psychologists, teachers) for applying information technologies in their future professional work. Such components are motivational, cognitive, reflective, communication and creative components. In order to investigate the level of formaton of each component by the future specialists in socionomics we conducted testing and suggested quiestionnaires for the students of psychology at Khmenytskyi National University and pedagogical students at Khmelnytskyi Humanitarian-Pedagogical Academy. The diagnostic results demonstrate that the motivational component of readiness of the students in the field of socionomics to use information technologies in their future professional activity has been formed at a sufficiently high level. However, the diagnostic results of all other components of readiness for using innovations by students of socionomics revealed only sufficient and low levels of formation. Such results necessitate the research effective psychological and pedagogical conditions for increasing the level of development of the motivational, cognitive, reflexive, communicative and creative components of readiness to use information technologies in professional activity by future specialists in the sphere of socionomics.
