Dialogue in the Educational Process

It is absolutely new idea for me. So_ here is just my reflection on this topic.

Dialogue is primarily a process of knowledge that actively responds to the innovations of the modern era, old and newly created traditions. According to the general opinion of scientists, any statement contains a meaning, belongs to someone and is aimed at someone. To implement the dialogue, it is necessary that both parties to the conversation fulfill certain requirements. Firstly, the interlocutors should be interested in the problem under discussion, and secondly, they need at least minimal experience and knowledge on the topic raised. In addition, dialogue is always associated with a particular tradition in which the conversation takes place. He must be open to others and have a future perspective. As you know, the dialogue can be carried out in various forms. And the one who enters into a conversation should know its rules, including its role in it. The advantage should be given to open-ended questions that stimulate thinking. An open question is a question that cannot be answered unambiguously and concisely; it requires some explanation, mental work. Such questions begin with the words “why”, “why”, “how”, etc., and this implies a detailed answer in a free form. Open questions are asked in order to obtain additional information or to find out the real motives and position of the interlocutor.
Open questions allow:
– get a detailed, detailed answer;
– to know the opinions and assessments of the person being asked;
– check the degree of understanding.

In order for the dialogue to take place, the teacher must possess a whole range of skills that can be divided into two groups.
The first group is the skills needed by the teacher in preparing and planning an educational dialogue:
• select educational material taking into account the subjective experience of students, on the basis of which it is possible to organize a dialogue;
• highlight key issues for discussion;
• outline the model of communication between the teacher and the students, the students among themselves;
• pick up didactic material that stimulates dialogical interaction.
Another group of skills is needed for dialogue:
• work taking into account the subjective experience of students;
• avoid negative judgments about student activities;
• summarize the statements of students, give them a scientific character
