At the beginning of July 2019, 15 project teams, participants of target selections of the program “100 leaders of new approaches in education”, completed the express accelerator course of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives under the President (ASI). And as early as on 16 July, during the “Island 10-22” educational intensive course at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, the first few teams had an opportunity to present their developments to the ASI Expert board. The “Smart School Pro Innovative Educational Platform” project intended to create a digital environment for preschool educational institutions was named among the first three educational projects supported by the ASI!
Members of the jury and experts were very active during the discussion of the presentation made by the project leader, founder of Educational Technologies LLC, Elena Ignateva. Testing of child’s psychophysical development which can be carried out based on Smart School Pro platform was of particular interest. Igor Remorenko, Rector of the Moscow State University, one of the leading pedagogical universities in the country, offered his cooperation and the opportunity for expertise in the testing content embedded in the platform.
It was noted that the special value of the platform lies in the fact that its creators are practitioners who have worked for several years in the preschool education system. The platform has grown out of a real need, which makes it very relevant. Jury members also pointed out that the possibilities of the platform are much wider, beyond preschool education. Some of the modules can also be successfully applied in primary schools.
Many questions were asked regarding the protection of personal data. Elena Ignateva highlighted that over the past few months the team had been focused on this particular problem. At the moment, Smart School Pro platform is fully compliant with the requirements of Federal Law No. 152-FZ “On Personal Data”.
After the jury meeting, in informal conversations with experts, it became clear that the Smart School Pro platform is of interest both to potential consumers and investors. “I’m sure you will fly!” – said Denis Kravchenko, EdExpert founder. We believe that too!
