I am 24 years old. I graduated from Moscow City University of Psychology and Education In 2008. My faculty is “Psychology of education”, the chair of developmental psychology. When I graduated the university, I took on a postgraduate course. The theme of my thesis is: “The role of argumentation in constructing child hypotheses on the structure and operation of live organisms”. The research will be carried out on the children of primary school and teenagers. The PhD supervisor is professor Obuhova Ludmila.
This research is based on the concept of intellectual development which was worked out by J. Piaget, and social-psychological concept of intellectual development by A.N. Perre-Clermont.
The main purpose of the research is to reveal the conditions which facilitate children’s abilities to work out meaningful hypotheses about the structure and operation of live organisms.
The object of this research is how children thinking develops in school age. In this research we plan to use many different psychological methods, such as: observation, analysis of child discussion, educational experiment. At the moment i work as a psychologist in the psychological center. We work with children from 3 till 18 years old. There are individual and group consultations. One of the groups which i realize calls “The Child laboratory” (our scientific research). This group is open for children from 6 till 8 years old. In the class we do experiments about the events of surrounding world and then we make discussions with children. We talk about the experiment, its result and their suppositions about possible results and reasons.
I am interested in the Summer School because it is good opportunity to receive new experience, to meet with new people which are also interested in my scientific area, to discuss with them our ideas, to learn something new, to exchange our scientific experience.
