Abstract

The aim of the study was to develop the web-based teaching course for use in the process of ICT learning by the Tatar-speaking students. We developed the training materials in computer science, based on Wikia, and conducted educational experiment on their usage. The first-year students of Higher School of Tatar Philology and Intercultural Communication of Kazan Federal University took part in the experiment. They were divided into two groups. The experimental group consisted of 25 trainees, control group included 25 students. The educational experiment was carried out during one semester of the academic year 2015/16 and 2016/17. In teaching of the subject “Computer science” (36 hours) the technology CLIL and Web 2.0-based training materials were used in the experimental group. Computer science teaching in the control group was provided in Russian, by means of traditional methods. The students were tested at the final stage of educational experiment. Processing of the results with the help of statistical methods led to the conclusion that the positive changes in the experimental group were due to CLIL-assisted training, using teaching materials, developed on the basis of Web 2.0 technologies.
