As such, we see that there is a very big risk if we use another language and not our own national language. Of course, there is the risk of the depletion of our analytical and creative abilities, and this naturally raises the issue of linguistic diversity. In this sense, of course, we must admit that innovations and new technologies are a challenge for our languages. Proactive digital technology needs to be developed for our language to evolve so that our scientists can write in their own language and then translate their work into other languages with complete peace of mind — Paul De Sinety, Executive Officer, General Delegation for the French Language and the Languages of France.
We have such a very good ecosystem within which in our cycle we have children whom we teach, whom we prepare to become students, and master’s students who become teachers. I believe we have succeeded in asserting this leadership position, leading this process of change, and doing it by thinking about end-to-end learning paths with digital tools. Why is this possible today? Because we are talking more about personalization and, consequently, creating a vertical ‘school – university – labour market’, in which the pillar is the child, with whom there is direct interaction throughout his/her entire growth […] Thus, on the basis of our digital platform, we are implementing a system of personalized education in this vertical that is carried out in a single organized space, in which we can work on motivating children, socialization, and the problems of upbringing — Roman Kotov, Director, Gorchakov Lyceum, MGIMO University.
The Russian Federation [...] has become a leader in organizing distance learning, which is necessitated by the pandemic. Around 50 countries have used our resources and the Russian electronic school. As such, it’s also a good opportunity, among other things, for our foreign colleagues to learn more about the results and achievements of our education — Sergey Kravtsov, Minister of Education of the Russian Federation.
Of course, the pandemic has spurred on the development of digital technologies. Thanks to their development, we have now been given several serious tools to promote the Russian language — Pavel Shevtsov, Deputy Director of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Humanitarian Cooperation.
