FROM COVID-19 TO MARTIAL LAW: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN DISTANCE EDUCATION OF UKRAINE
The paper discusses the status and development of distance education in Ukraine in response to the challenges of modern society, experience gained during COVID - 19 and the country’s martial law status. The study is conducted based on the analysis of the recent publication and official regulations issued in concern of distance education as well as on the author’s ethnographic perspectives. The study highlights main peculiarities of implementing distance education in Ukraine, specifics of its organization and continuation after the introduction of martial law. The study stresses the merge of pedagogy and technical solutions with the emphasis on the development of the students’ personalities, their cognitive and creative abilities. The analysis of the current status of distance education in the country proves that the experience gained during the global lockdown and transfer of all educational establishments to distance education allowed schools to develop better teaching techniques and approaches to teach online as well as awareness of the community about wide opportunities of distance education. The results of the study show that in Ukrainian society there is a large contingent of students who are genuinely interested in the organization of distance learning in educational establishments of all levels. The popularization of distance education determines the ways of its further development in the country.
