Due to the introduction of martial law, the study of the course by future teachers was carried out in a distance format this semester. However, we have positive feedback from master’s students who have already successfully applied the acquired practical skills working with primary school students, as a significant part of them are already employed.
Therefore, regardless of the challenges of the war, they successfully implement the best European practices and innovative approaches to digital education in the New Ukrainian School.
