Abstract (English):
The ecosystem approach develops communication skills and promotes creativity by digitalizing the academic environment. The authors analyzed the ecosystem approach from economic, philosophical, psychological, and pedagogical perspectives. They described the possibilities of using digital tools in the process of teaching a foreign language to university students of IT departments. The article introduces the basic trends in academic digitalization. Digital tools can organize the academic environment in the process of teaching a foreign language, e.g., the Miro virtual whiteboard, the Nearpod platform, the portal, the Google Calendar service, etc. An empirical survey proved that the ecosystem approach is an efficient tool of second language acquisition, which develops creative interaction, generates innovative solutions, increases positive motivation, develops business communication skills, and provides business communication experience.
