A delegation from the Helsinki Education Department led by Liisa Pohjolainen visited Moscow school No 1560. The Finish guests attended medical and engineering classes where they saw how the Moscow Electronic School project worked.
They saw how pupils constructed robots, studied Ohm's law and learnt about 3D modelling.
“Everything here is systematic and thought-through. We have noted a large number of interesting moments used in the MES. We would like to use some of these ideas back home. Technological solutions for data analysis are what we like most,” Liisa Pohjolainen added.
The Helsinki delegation also learnt how the content in the Moscow Electronic School encourages people to study and how easy it is for teachers, children and their parents to use them.
According to Director of School No 1560 Irina Zhdanova, expertise exchanges are important and useful. Finland and Moscow are highly ranked when it comes to international education quality surveys.
“I believe it is good for the both sides to know where education is going. We are interested to see how the Finnish education system is developing and how our colleagues want to know the same about the Moscow education system,” Irina Zhadnova noted.
The Moscow Electronic School was introduced in 2016 as a pilot scheme. Today all educational institutions in Moscow have joined it. The project became the foundation of the single high-tech educational environment used to increase the quality of teaching that united traditional school methods and up to date technology.
