New educational programs and apps
During the event, the head of state familiarized himself with the teaching-methodical complex (TMK), encompassing a comprehensive range of materials to facilitate an active learning process. This includes textbooks, workbooks, and methodical manuals for teachers.
Additionally, the Estudy electronic educational platform has been seamlessly integrated into the system, offering courses in subjects such as math and computer science. Notably, the platform boasts over 300 educational game tasks, providing an engaging way to reinforce acquired knowledge.
Students are encouraged to utilize the platform during lessons and in their free time, enabling them to consolidate their learning and surpass the curriculum at their own pace. Moreover, the platform is hosted on the TAS-IX network, ensuring free accessibility for all users.
Furthermore, the textbook incorporates an interactive learning program featuring educational games available in Uzbek and Russian languages for Android and iOS platforms. To spark even greater interest among students, the textbooks for grades 1-3, including fine arts, Uzbek language, and music literacy, have been developed using augmented reality technology.
This innovative approach aims to captivate young learners and transform their gadgets, which have become an indispensable part of their lives, into valuable educational tools. It is worth noting that the augmented reality application can be downloaded once and used offline, providing flexibility and convenience for students and teachers alike.
Beyond imparting subject knowledge, these textbooks also prioritize the development of essential life skills that are crucial in the 21st century. By nurturing a well-rounded education, Uzbekistan lays the foundation for a future generation with the knowledge and talents necessary to thrive in an ever-evolving world.
