MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Today, more than 30 online directions are available to project participants.
Since March 2020, project teachers “Moscow longevity” spent almost 60 thousand hours of online classes, reported Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
“Online classes are a convenient and safe format that allows older Muscovites to actively and interestingly spend their time at home. It is important for us to create all the conditions so that people who are now at risk can spend time on self-isolation with benefit for themselves. That is why we are developing online directions in the Moscow Longevity project. At the moment, teachers have spent almost 60 thousand hours of classes in the online space, ”she said.
Online classes within the framework of the Moscow Longevity project began for the first time after the introduction of the self-isolation regime. The distance learning format was in demand by the Muscovites of the older generation.
In the new autumn-winter season, you can sign up for classes in music, theater arts, general physical training and arts and crafts. Also new directions await the participants – “Literary workshop” and “Online excursions”. There are over 30 online activities available today.
The project teachers have done a great job in organizing distance learning. They went live, conducted online classes, recorded video tutorials, and helped older students learn and support modern technology.
With the transition to distance learning, they continued to work and courses on computer literacy and work with smartphones, which have become more relevant than ever for the older generation.
You can now become a member of the Moscow Longevity project remotely. You can find out the schedule and sign up for classes by calling your territorial social service center. Addresses and phone numbers are published on website.
