Prerequisites and Barriers to the Use of Digital Tools for Organising Mentoring in a Teaching Team

There is currently an increased research vector related to exploring the application of digital tools in personnel management and a growing research interest in mentoring in educational organisations. The purpose of the article is to identify and justify the factors that facilitate or limit the use of digital tools in the organization of mentoring in a teaching team. Methodology. The methodology of the study is based on the provisions of the systematic approach and on the ideas of interdisciplinary approach to the study of pedagogical phenomena. Theoretical analysis of normative legal acts, results of interdisciplinary research and SWOT-analysis methods are used to solve the problems set. Results. The study showed that the prerequisites for the application of digital tools of mentoring organisation in the pedagogical team to a greater extent are the digital tools used by the educational organisation to solve managerial and learning tasks, as well as the RF policy aimed at developing digitalisation and innovative activities of educational organisations. The barriers to the use of digital tools for mentoring in the teaching staff lie in the properties of the educational organisation’s teaching staff. The economic aspects of the external environment, associated with the imperfect mechanism for calculating teachers’ salaries, also have an unfavourable impact. Conclusion. The results obtained are the basis for the development of strategic alternatives that define, for a particular case, options for the optimization of digital support for the organization of mentoring in the pedagogical team.
