State Duma deputy Vitaly Milonov proposed to develop a list of smartphones for schoolchildren, reports RT. According to him, in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, the presence of gadgets for educational purposes is simply necessary and it is stupid to prohibit their use. But, on the other hand, expensive smartphone models in children contribute to their separation on a social basis.
According to the MP’s plan, the list should include smartphones that are accessible to all families, which will be able to help children in learning.
“In this case, I ask you to develop a list of available mobile device models approved by the Ministry of Education, which will put an end to social discord and rivalry at school desks. This list should include devices that can perform educational functions, provide communication between students and teachers, but at the same time be affordable for any family,” Milonov said.
The deputy sent his proposal to the Minister of Education of the Russian Federation Sergey Kravtsov.
