What parents need to know about digital educational resources

researchers at the HSE has prepared a quick analysis of the different digital resources for distance education and that’s what it became.

1.Online does not always mean “free”. We must be prepared to a little spending. Not all digital learning materials free of charge. The basic annual subscription to “Aclass”, for example, stands for teacher and student for 1300 rubles. “Teach.ru” also provides for a fee for a yearly subscription to unlimited the decision of tasks on one item – 1490 rubles. “Foxford” – from 500 to 3000 rubles per month. NES (the Russian school) – free of charge.

2.The weak point of many online simulators – the lack of feedback and Analytics. Job often tests are in multiple-choice or problems with one answer. And I would like otherwise. The student performs the task, makes mistakes, and he was on the screen tip: “Repeat the theme of cloven-hoofed animals (spelling of consoles, the determination of the logarithm)…”. Alas, to do this is technologically difficult. So if you have the opportunity, try to do engage in the process of testing the knowledge. How? The method is difficult, but very effective: if the child told you a new theme and you understood everything perfectly. So he learned it on the five plus.

3.Do not worry if during the verification of knowledge, the child is not too high the result, although in high school this subject is good. Distance format does not take into account age specifics of children individual characteristics. Relatively speaking, one student in the 5th grade, it is necessary to think about five seconds, the other twice more time, but it will give the same correct answer. One poorly developed visual memory, the other auditory. System discount on such features does not. If pprogrammisty laid on a response for 10 seconds, and the question, for example, not made public, then exactly 10 seconds “silent” window will disappear.

4.Not all electronic resources contain material for all classes. Say, “Teach.ru” material for 11th class is only algebra and English. For 9th class – in Russian, algebra, English. And that’s all!

5.If your child learns in school is not English, and, say, German or French, the choice of teaching resources is sharply reduced. Of free will only fit the NES.

And more. While parents are exploring the digital resources and are scratching their heads over what is better, the open secret: students studied the portal with a strange name… “GDZ Putina”. You know, what is it? Full answers to all (!) homework and test questions, test questions in almost all school textbooks. And why, you ask, then do I need to school homework?
