ON OCCASION OF THE 300TH ANNIVERSARY: HRYHORII SKOVORODA`S PEDAGOGICAL IDEAS AS A PRECURSOR OF DIFFERENTIATED TEACHING
Keywords:H. Skovoroda, differentiated learning, personality-oriented learning, methodological principles
On 3rd December 2022, we celebrated the 300th anniversary of the birth of Hryhoriy Skovoroda – one of the greatest Baroque thinkers, poets, educators and writers of the XVIII century. His influence on the development of Ukrainian and worldwide pedagogy is difficult to overestimate, however, today we would like to stress the importance and relevance of his ideas by analysing them through the prism of a modern approach to education – differentiated teaching and learning. H. Skovoroda`s studying at Kyiv Mohyla Academy, where he had a chance to meet famous and prospective philosophers, thinkers, and activists of the time, and his experience of teaching and lecturing at famous Ukrainian educational centers shaped his views on teaching methods. Combined with his philosophic views these ideas prove to be relevant in the modern conditions. The article analyses the main principles of differentiated learning – principles of taking into account the individual characteristics of students, accessibility, systematicity, consistency, autonomy, and consciousness through their connection to Skovoroda`s ideas. The analysis showed that H. Skovoroda formulated some of the fundamental principles of personality-oriented learning, which were precursors for developing ideas of differentiated learning.
