Moscow teachers to receive grants for online lesson plans
The grants have been given to the first five teachers who largely contributed to the development of the Moscow Online School project.

Teachers who created a series of lessons on a major topic as part of the Moscow Online School project can receive a 100,000 rouble grant, Director of the City Methodological Centre Marianna Lebedeva said during a video conference at the Moscow Department of Education.  

The grant for contributing to the Moscow Online School project was introduced in Moscow to support teachers. To receive it, a teacher should develop a series of lessons on a selected topic. One of the terms is that the plan must be used by at least 500 teachers.

According to Ms Lebedeva, more Moscow teachers use online textbooks, developed by their colleagues, during lessons and also develop their own programmes. To date, 9,000 online lesson plans have been created.

The first five teachers have already received grants, including Yevgeny Kimeris from School No. 1995, Natalya Anikina from School No. 1194, Maria Malysheva from Lyceum No. 1571 and Irina Kupriyenko and Svetlana Platonova from School No. 627.

The Moscow Online School project was launched in Moscow in September 2016. It includes an online record book with a wider range of options, an online library and interactive whiteboards connected to the internet and the library.
