Education Ministry urges to make most of distance learning tools
School students should make the most of available educational resources for distance learning, Director of the National Institute of Education affiliated with the Education Ministry Valentina Ginchuk said at an online conference on the BelTA website.
First of all, students should use school textbooks as they contain all the material in line with curricula. Electronic versions of the textbooks are available on the national education portal free of charge.
In addition to textbooks, students can use other learning aids, like atlases and exercise books. Publishing houses that issue exercise books gave free access to part of them.
There are also electronic resources. They are available on the national eduction portal on the Moodle platform. As of 1 April, nearly 54,000 users registered there; 14,000 of them were educators, the rest were students.
“The national education portal offers a range of textbooks that were developed before as part of the digitalization program. There are also audio applications for learning foreign languages,” Valentina Ginchuk said.
Teachers can also develop their own material using information and communication technology. “We have compiled a list of online services that can be used to develop interactive content and communicate with students and get the feedback,” the director said.
