While he was still the president of Russia, at one of the meetings of the Presidium of the State Council, Dmitry Medvedev proposed to make school magazines and diaries electronically. Assumed that they would not cancel the paper form of keeping these documents and would maintain their electronic versions in parallel.
According to Dmitry Medvedev, such a measure should also contribute to the training of teachers in computer skills. Today, broadband internet connection has become the standard in Russian schools. There are no barriers to making the mandatory maintenance of internal school records a comparable standard.
Since 2012, the plans of the President and Ministry of Education and Science have become a reality, and electronic diaries have been widely introduced in schools. Regions of the country are gradually moving to a new data organization system. Experience is gained in communicating with the electronic system, and the identified shortcomings are eliminated.
The electronic student agenda is a system for interaction between students, teachers, parents, and the administration of educational institutions. With its help, parents can track their child’s progress, determine the class schedule, and track absenteeism and grades. You can now also know the time of the parent meeting in advance. All you need to do is subscribe to the associated SMS service.
For a student, the system is helpful because it can clarify the class schedule and the teaching materials assigned to the house at any time. If you wish, you can view the statistics of your reviews and their rating for each selected period.
For a teacher, an electronic diary is a quick and easy way to communicate with the parents of students. This form also assists in preparing reports on classroom performance. Sometimes, the diary allows you to test students electronically, even if they are out of school for good reasons. It will undoubtedly take time before the system is fully integrated into the educational process. However, over time, I will incorporate the electronic diary into Russian schools’ general document management system.
