Formation of Communicative Competencein Primary School Children



We discuss the formation of communicative skills in primary school children in the implementation of collaborative learning task. The urgency of the problems is presented in the context of implementing federal education standards into the general education system. We describe the experimental data of formative study using group sessions aimed at creating a collective distributed learning environment in the classroom on the subject "The world around us" in the students of grades I and II. It is shown that in the experimental group after the specially organized activities with an assignment in pairs and small groups of schoolchildren, indicators of mutual control and the ability to negotiate are growing, the clarity of speech expression is increased. The data obtained confirmed the assumption that in a specially organized learning environment, the educational partnership is formed much more successful.
