The leading role of an educator conducting the research is determined by the social purpose of the profession. The purpose of the profession consists in transferring to the younger generation the rich experience accumulated by mankind in all spheres of human life. Pedagogical professional tasks are characterized by the creativity and ability to transfer knowledge. Additionally, it involves the need to constantly correlate the teacher’s goals with the student’s goals. During any research, observation, or assessment involving children, the peculiarities of their growing up, perception, and the emerging psyche should be considered.
The educators’ activity opens up the possibility of influencing the integral formation of the student’s personality. Therefore, teaching ethics within the process of interaction with children is important. In the educational process, the role of the educator finds expression in the educational, developmental, and nurturing functions carried out. The educator, first of all, conveys experience through knowledge, equips students with the skills of study, research, and work (Rahimjanovna, 2020). At the same time, the educator introduces schoolchildren to the basics of worldview, morality, and discipline, and contributes to the formation of interests, abilities, and the development of their cognitive powers.
In conclusion, as a child, I personally participated in survey research twice. One of them only consisted of answering questions on paper, and due to a large number of those was time-consuming, uninteresting, and difficult for the child’s concentration. The other study was more entertaining, involving interaction with children from all over the class. In this research, we, as children, were made aware of the importance of our participation and the purpose of the research, which allowed us to feel like valuable assets for the study. Therefore, depending on the approach of the educator to work with children, the effectiveness of actions changes.
