Putin reiterated his pledge that the

face-to-face learning cannot be fully replaced by remote, said the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at a meeting with the working group on preparation of amendments to the Constitution. The discussion took place via videoconference.

According to Putin, the “conventional method” of children’s knowledge is “a natural process”. And it can not be completely replaced by distance learning. In the study, said Putin, it is extremely important to the “direct and personal communication between teacher and students.” It is as schoolchildren and students, Putin said.

He reiterated that the Russian authorities have no plans to completely replace traditional learning remote, introduced because of the situation with coronavirus. At the same time Putin pointed to the development of distance learning technologies, stressing that it is impossible to stop progress. “It’s pointless and harmful, but to substitute one for the other should not be”, — he said. According to Putin, “the remote control” may be used, but it is necessary to write standards and rules.

Recall that in mid-June, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova suggested that students are likely to be able to return to full-time education at the beginning of September. According to Popova, the Department has prepared recommendations on the organization of the educational process, the situation is “manageable,” and “there is a high proportion of confidence” that the students in September will be able to return to school. The head of Minproma of the Russian Federation Sergey Kravtsov also said that the Russian educational institutions plan on September 1 to begin the school year in full-time format.

In may, Putin has already said that plying in social networks rumors that the students are fully transferred to e – learning is a blatant provocation. He assured that the translation for “distance learning” will not, online learning will never replace traditional training which not only teaches, but also “educates and shapes the personality.”
