  • 4. The need of educational reforms
    The gap between the demands and challenges of the modern fast changing world and inadequate learning environment
    ORT de Gunzburg, St.Petersburg, Russia
  • 5. The reforms are slipping
    The reforms haven't revolutionized learning environment yet
    The reforms have focused too much on technologies and not enough on the rebuilding of learning environment as an integral system
    ORT de Gunzburg, St.Petersburg, Russia
  • 6. The approach to the problem
    Learning environment has a high-tech appearance, but is out-of-date in essence and doesn't correspond to the realities of the modern world
    The approach should be system, but the experiment may be local (we started with just two subjects — ICT and English language)‏
    The approach should be based on ICT and digital resourses, but technology should "take on a life of its own".
    The approach should be based on the best forward-looking studies of innovations in education
    ORT de Gunzburg, St.Petersburg, Russia
  • 7. Available world experience

  • 8. Learners-centered learning environment

    Encourages learners to monitor, evaluate and optimize their acquisition of knowledge
    Deploys assessment strategies consistent with the clear learning expectations
    Is sensitive to the individual differences
    Is founded on the social nature of learning and encourages well-organized co-operative learning
    Offers all necessary facilities for hard work for all without excessive overload.
    ORT de Gunzburg, St.Petersburg, Russia
  • 9. New roles for all participants
    A teacher: a sage on the stage or a guide on the side?
    A student: takes true ownership of his learning, and the weight of responsibility at the same time
    A parent: is informed about learning expectations, assessment process and student’s progress

    ORT de Gunzburg, St.Petersburg, Russia

    ORT de Gunzburg, St.Petersburg, Russia
