A strategic document with such words as “increase” or “enhance” is a step back, that is why the regional programmee for IT development, adopted by the Kharkiv Regional State Administration, should not contain them, according to the Telesens Chairman of the Board, and Kharkiv IT Cluster Eduard Rubin statements.

A range of trainings for school Informatics teachers on innovative teaching methods has become one of the first initiatives, started in the region by N.Arsubov. He strives to make lessons interesting and entertaining for children, and to update the school programme, according to the contemporary professional standards.
Another step to the future of Ukrainian schools will be made through implementation of the electronic system for tracking performance called “School Grade”. Being developed at the NAU “Kharkiv Aviation Institute”, it allows monitoring and tracking school grades automatically, maintaining security and confidentiality of the information. The system will be experimentally implemented a school in Kharkiv region.
