Abstract

Techniques of implementation of the student-centered approach engaging the social network can have a good potential for integration in the learning process as they are able to create conditions for placing the student's needs in the centre of learning and teaching, forming initiative, creative and responsible attitude on the part of the students and preparing young people for life in the digital world where computer technologies are becoming an obligatory part of any professional activity including teaching foreign languages. Working out such techniques is considered an important methodological problem. The methods of research include analysis of scientific resources on the problem, working out the method of teaching that integrates online tasks with classroom activities, verification of its efficiency in the learning and teaching process and interpretation of the results received. Practical significance of this work is provided by creation of the teaching techniques which reflect modern requirements of the society in the educational sphere: the students are supposed to form knowledge on methods of teaching English, develop teaching skills and at the same time learn how to use the modern digital technologies for achieving professional pedagogic aims. Positive results of this research serve as basis for further inquiry aimed at involving the Internet technologies into the process of learning and teaching foreign languages since using social networking as part of foreign language courses can noticeably increase students’ motivation towards the learning target.
