In 2020, education systems in all countries faced a powerful challenge – with in-person participation no longer an option, from 30 to 100% classes had to be arranged remotely. During the pandemic, the education systems in various countries tried to find a balance between online and offline learning. An urgent transition to online learning at schools and universities exposed some problems but at the same time revealed some new opportunities provided by modern information technologies. The pandemic has shown that a reasonable combination between online and offline classes needs to be found; new patterns for student and teacher activities need to be developed; the mechanisms of interaction between parents and teachers need to be improved; and greater parental involvement in the educational process needs to be achieved.
Issues for discussion:
• Is it correct to discuss fully online learning in schools and universities?
• How can a curriculum change when some of the subjects are taught online (with regard to the SanPiN regulatory requirements)?
• What is the teacher’s role in online learning?
• What is the optimal balance between a video lecture and a remote-participation lesson based on an online platform?
• How can a teacher's salary change if they teach online classes?
• Is it possible to fully transfer final national certification exams online in the Russian Federation and in other countries?
