14 February 2019
14:30—15:45
KEY CONCLUSIONS
Investing in education is a crucial factor of economic development

There is no question for me of whether to invest, because the history of mankind proves the most efficient investment is investment in children — Olga Vasilyeva, Minister of Education of the Russian Federation.

Modern education should be based on combination of tradition and innovation

There is no opposition between what we had before and what we have now, because the education system is based on continuity — Olga Vasilyeva, Minister of Education of the Russian Federation.

Fundamental science has always been an integral part of our education. And we cannot lose it under any circumstances — Marina Rakova, Deputy Minister of Education of the Russian Federation.

I perceive mathematics, history, literature, a foreign language as the key elements of universal education. <…> It trains the brain, takes you to a certain cultural level, provides a historical background <…> and makes one a globally minded person — Vladimir Mau, Rector, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA).

We need to have an exceptional educational background <…> — physics, chemistry, biology <…> math as a uniting discipline. They are the cornerstone of artificial intelligence — Alexander Povalko, Chairman of the Management Board of RVC.

ISSUES
A big gap between education and the economy’s needs

We have completed a talent forecast in our region: 40% of the majors offered by intermediate vocational education are not what business needs. We need to invest extensive efforts in the intermediate vocational education <…> If we fail to develop intermediate vocational education, we will result in young people leaving our region — Andrey Nikitin, Governor of Novgorod Region.

No adequate criteria to assess talent pool and quality of education

Without fact-based results we cannot manage the system and get a full understanding of what we did well and what we did not. <…> If school principals are appointed through their connections with the head of the municipality, narratives that we are supposed to have the most innovative education are not going to work — Sergey Kravtsov, Head, Federal Service for Supervision in Education and Science.

Lack of good teachers and high-quality EdTech

There’s a truly important programme called ‘Teacher for Russia’. <…> Our main challenge is to provide access to high-quality EdTech and knowledge available to children in the most prestigious schools in a most remoted small school — Andrey Nikitin, Governor of Novgorod Region.

SOLUTIONS
Using digitization opportunities in education

For us digitization is not making learning a screen-based process. <…> It is a transition to managing education system by analysing Big Data, which saves both time and money. <…> The other track here is the data on how fast the child is learning, what materials they use, how good their teacher is <…> and what it brings us to — Marina Rakova, Deputy Minister of Education of the Russian Federation.

Digital literacy is a universal competence, which is crucial for us — Vladimir Mau, Rector, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA).

We can create a product, provide it as a service and then upgrade it throughout its life cycle — Sergey Sakhnenko, Industrial Director of Radioelectronic Complex; Rostec.

Focusing on creativity

We are preparing personalities, we nourish and cherish creators. If they become creators instead of consumers, they will do well both with machines and choosing a profession — Olga Vasilyeva, Minister of Education of the Russian Federation.

A person needs to be independent <…> make their own calls and face the consequences. <…> Thirdly, a person needs to develop a habit of continuous learning <…> they should do it on their own, there should be a primary need for it — Alexander Povalko, Chairman of the Management Board of RVC.

Today your top quality is not your major, it is your adaptability — Vladimir Mau, Rector, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA).

There is a highly relevant objective to upgrade the research and technological groundwork. <…> We need to see how we can make sure that young strong motivated and creative people join research — Alexander Sergeev, President, Russian Academy of Sciences.

The key factor of successful investment in education <…> is investing in teachers. <…> It is crucial <…> to create a platform to enable teachers to interact and share best practices — Vladimir Uzun, President, Prosveshcheniye Publishing House.

Achieving consistent interaction between government and business in education

There is a question: should every company work with educational facilities on its own? Or should there be some – let’s call it – federal integrator that would share, promote and spread best practices? — Alikhan Dinaev, Winner, All-Russian Сompetition "Teacher of the Year of Russia - 2018".

The society is interested in attracting employers to this area. <…> The German economy wins in many ways because it provides high-quality training to everyone – top to bottom — Andrey Komarov, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Chelyabinsk Pipe-Rolling Plant.
