“There are Some Problems with Teaching Informatics”
September 7, 12:00

During the last week, textbooks on "Informatics" taught in secondary schools have become the subject of discussions in the social media. Social media users have made critical comments on the program of the subject, textbook content and the way of teaching it. 

Media Center held a discussion on this topic with the participation of Ruzanna Stepanyan, Head of Informatics and Information Technologies Department of the National Institute of Education, Samvel Martirosyan, Information security expert, Hasmik Ayvazyan, Methodologist of educational programs at “Instigate Training Center” and Seyran Avetisyan, Author of “Informatics” Textbook.
