“The difficult epidemiological situation has certainly pushed the development of online technologies in the education of young people. GSOM was able to cope with new challenges in a short time and over the past months has accumulated a lot of successful experience that has enriched the development strategy of the School, defining a new focus – online programs for aspiring leaders. Our assessments allow us to speak about both the positive aspects of the development of online technologies in education, as well as some negative aspects. However, the analysis shows that online learning is most effective for an audience of young people between the ages of 20 and 27. Realizing that this is a period of self-determination, we can confidently speak of the enormous potential of online education as a tool to support young people in the labor market, ” said Leonid Vasiliev.
The speaker also mentioned the joint project of GSOM SPbU and Coca-Cola in Russia – the educational platform “Youth Empowered”. The goal of the project is to help young people in all regions of Russia develop communication and entrepreneurial skills, taking into account the individual characteristics and goals of each participant. The launch is planned before the end of 2020.
The discussion was attended by representatives of business, educational institutions, government agencies and youth associations, who in their speeches noted the possibilities of assisting young people in orientin themselves on the labor market and creating conditions for their successful self-realization.
