An international forum of Russian language teachers is starting in Egypt to improve the effectiveness of teaching in Russian and popularize modern educational technologies




Knowledge of the Russian language opens up excellent prospects for foreign citizens coming to Russia in the field of education and employment. In the second quarter of 2022, more than 3 million foreigners came to the country to realize their professional potential in Russian companies – a third more than a year earlier, and more than a million students and 4.1 million schoolchildren receive Russian-language education only in the CIS countries today.


To improve the effectiveness of teaching in Russian and the exchange of pedagogical experience, the Autonomous non-profit organization «National methodological Council for technological education» is implementing “Methods and tools for the formation of new literacy among students (based on the best practices of Russian education)" project. As part of an initiative, launched under the auspices of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation, teachers of Russian in Egypt are invited to participate in the international forum “Digital Technologies and Tools of Open Education: on the way to digital Literacy” for free, which starts on October 19-20.

The event is aimed at promoting the Russian language, Russian education and culture. It will be held online using distance learning technologies. An online forum will also be held in Belarus. The ANO "Method Council on Technology" project improves methods and tools for the formation of new literacy among students and includes presentations by Russian and foreign experts in the field of open education and modern technologies in Russian.


Everyone who is engaged in popularization of the Russian language among the foreign audience is invited to participate in the project. There are teachers, Russian specialists, heads of educational organizations, manufacturers of educational equipment, teachers implementing technological programs in Russia and foreign countries, and so on.


It is planned that more than 150 participants from Egypt, as well as Belarus, Russia, Indonesia, India, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and other countries will join the educational and scientific-methodological events. The events are available to participants from Egypt online.


The partners of the project are the Russian Association for International Cooperation, the Russian State Children's Library, the Russian Club in Egypt and the Mogilev State Regional Institute for the Development of Education (Republic of Belarus).


"Our country has accumulated effective practices in the field of new literacies formation that are the must for teaching the Russian language at the highest level. We have tried to select those practices that are relevant for both Russian and international education to implement the project. Without a doubt, they include reading literacy, as well as digital and technological skills. We hope that teaching experience and methodological developments that teachers can exchange at international forums will serve as a bright start for a new stage of teaching Russian abroad", commented Natalia Sheveleva, Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences, Head of the Department of Pedagogical Technologies of Continuing Education of the Moscow State Pedagogical University (Moscow, Russia).
