Abstract

Today, active work is underway to introduce the most advanced ideas and pedagogical technologies into the education system. In particular, it is expected to improve the quality of knowledge and competitiveness of students. In this regard, one of the important issues is updating the content of training future computer science teachers for STEM education. In the article, in accordance with the topic of the study, the task was to determine the significance and history of preparing future computer science teachers for STEM education, analyze educational programs for training future computer science teachers in universities, and develop the content of training future computer science teachers for STEM education.

The purpose of the study is to identify the substantive features of preparing future computer science teachers for STEM education, to introduce the “STEM technologies in education” curriculum into the educational process in universities and its practical testing. In this regard, based on the preparation of future computer science teachers for STEM education, they develop professional skills, critical and creative thinking in the development of project work.

To study and clarify the process of preparing future computer science teachers for STEM education in higher education institutions, general education institutions and additional education institutions, theoretical and empirical research methods were used. The need for professional pedagogical activity of future computer science teachers is clarified: personal, cognitive praxicological, theoretical and practical training.

Practical training of future computer science teachers for STEM education, along with the assimilation of knowledge, is closely related to their application in practice, the development of skills and abilities to carry out teaching activities, and the formation of competencies that form the basis of the practical training of future teachers.

Based on the analysis of the literature, the content features of preparing future computer science teachers for STEM education were identified: the integrated content of scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical education.

STEM education is one of the areas for developing key competencies of the 21st century. In the future, we need specialists who can develop and construct objects and materials to implement diverse and large-scale interdisciplinary tasks, as well as projects to solve global and regional problems. In the process of rapid development of the modern information flow, taking into account the emergence of new computer programs and technologies, changing the content of training future computer science teachers for STEM education is a request of society, which, starting from school, will increase the interest of young people in mastering the profession of qualified engineers and technologists in the future, IT
