In this paper, a non‐conventional approach is proposed for organizing the cognitive activity of students—future teachers, in acquiring methods and technique of the school physics experiment. The purpose is to ensure a specific educational environment in which students have positive attitude to work, show willingness for cooperation and mutual aid, and they actively take part in joint activities regardless of their knowledge, abilities and interests. In the paper, some of distinctive characteristics of the organization of cognitive activity in this case are followed and analyzed: work in small groups; implementation of group tasks, in which, problems with entertaining matter are added to the experimental tasks; discussions within a group as well as among the groups; introducing an element of competition among the groups, etc. Conclusions are drawn about advantages of such an interactive approach for increasing effectiveness of education.
