EMERGENT LEARNING AND NEGENTROPY OF EDUCATIONAL PROCESS
The article discusses the problems of forecasting the results of the educational process in the context of the implementation of the emerging education system, which is a form of organization and management of educational activities in a systemic approach to the use of e-learning and traditional teaching in the classroom (laboratory, workshop). An entropy approach to the assessment of the quality of the pedagogical process is proposed, and a rationale for the selection of quality criteria from the point of view of entropy and negentropy is given. An example of a set of criteria for a natural science discipline in the conditions of teaching in a certain direction/specialty is given. At the same time, the classification of criteria, in terms of reducing or increasing the predictability of learning outcomes, contributes to the streamlining and predictability of the educational process, which in turn is accompanied by an improvement in the quality of the students’ training.
Keywords: e-learning, emergent learning, distance educational technologies, quality of learning, entropy, negentropy, prediction of educational outcomes.

ESTIMATION OF THE QUALITY OF MODERN INFORMATICS LESSONS IN BASIC SCHOOL
The work is devoted to the problem of assessing the quality of the modern lesson in the context of informatization and the globalization of education. The formalized system of expert-statistical assessment of lessons developed by the authors on the basis of a criterial-indicative table with the projective strategy is presented. The leading idea of the work is to launch a cloud portal technology for the automated assessment of the quality of lessons based on the proposed criterial table of expert assessment of lessons. On the example of a few content lines of the school informatics course it is justified that it’s necessary to include in the assessment procedure four models of lessons with different degrees of using ICT. The materials of the article can be used to assess the quality of any lessons and will be useful for solving administrative issues of improving the quality of the educational process.
Keywords: assessment of quality of lesson, criteria for quality of education, educational results of schoolchildren in informatics, automated procedural scheme for assessing quality, Federal State Educational Standard.

COMPONENTS OF ENGINEERING THINKING AND THE ROLE OF INFORMAION TECHNOLOGIES IN THEIR FORMATION
The article discusses a problem why digital economy is short of engineering personnel for its development, and the crucial need to form secondary school students’ engineering culture as teenagers and young people are potential specialists for the scientific and industrial sphere in the NBICS surrounding. It became possible to identify the problematic field of further research and practical decision-making in the area by studying and analyzing normative documents of the federal level; scientific, methodological and educational literature for secondary school; the experience of Moscow secondary school teachers of Math, Science, Technology, Computer Studies. The research also focuses on the basic components of engineering thinking that are science and design thinking along with their characteristics and specific features being formed at the stage of basic and secondary general education in Russia. ICT tools that contribute to the formation and development students’ engineering thinking within Technology Studies are considered. The detailed conceptualization of engineering thinking from both theoretical and practical points of view creates necessary circumstances to form a generalized view of end-to-end training of future engineering and technical personnel for the domestic economy — from school to University. Such support in clarifying some conceptual positions in Technology Studies will be a subject of interest for textbooks’ authors, methodologists, teachers, practitioners and many others interested and working in secondary education. It will help to update the content lines of present Technology Studies textbooks, as well as to design the profile coursebook “Engineering Technologies” for high school students.
Keywords: engineering culture, engineering thinking, science knowledge, design projects, Technology Studies.

FROM THE TEACHING MACHINE MOVEMENT TO INSTRUMENTAL PERSPECTIVE ON TECHNOLOGY-IMMUNE/TECHNOLOGY-ENABLED MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM
The article shares pedagogical ideas about using technology in mathematics teacher education. A point is made that computational power of digital tools may contribute to diminishing cognitive engagement of students in problem solving. In order to avoid such negative impact of technology on one’s mathematical development, a new type of mathematics curriculum which integrates the traditional argument and the modern-day computations has been suggested. Examples of technology uses cover all levels of pre-college mathematics and include spreadsheets, Wolfram Alpha, and KidPix.
