Today, on March 30, Teleskola was officially launched. The project was implemented in collaboration with First Channel of Georgia. Teleskola enables all students to find interesting and cognitive lessons across all subjects regardless of the Internet access.
Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia, Mikheil Chkhenkeli addressed the students: “Dear students, my young friends! As you know, in order to overcome the coronavirus challenge, the learning process is temporarily suspended at classrooms. However, this challenge should not hinder the process of education. Consequently, the ministry, along with the First Channel of Georgia, are offering you an interesting project - Teleskola. As a leading part of this project, you will find engaging lessons in all the subjects taught by very experienced teachers. It should be noted that everyone has access to the TV lessons, regardless of whether you have the Internet access. It is very important that you get involved in this process. Classes will be held Monday through Friday. Whereas, during the weekend, Teleskola offers, interesting educational and cognitive shows, produced both in Georgia and abroad. You are the future of our country! I would like to wish everyone good health, and good fortune in this great path, which is called receiving education.”
Teleskola is being aired by Georgian Public Broadcasting First Channel - Education (formerly Second Channel).
Airtime (Lesson Timetable) covers all class subjects. Classes provided by the National Curriculum will be taught by experienced teachers from both the public and private sectors and will offer students a tailored module. Teleskola subject schedule can be found at: http://mes.gov.ge/s/OIpcN
Undoubtedly, the interest of students with special educational needs is also taken into account in the initial planning of live lessons. Needless to say, all transmissions are provided by a gesture translator.
In its first phase, lessons will be conducted for ethnic minorities in Georgian as a second language, Azeri and Armenian languages, while other subjects in Azerbaijani and Armenian languages will be gradually added.
Additionally, the project also plans to hold an Entry Hour, a designated hour for the entrants where specialists in the field give advice and specific recommendations on national exams.
Classes will be held Monday through Friday and begin each day at 9 AM. Various cognitive-entertainment programs will also be added on the weekends.
The Ministry has also developed special recommendations for students and parents to engage effectively in TV Lessons: http://mes.gov.ge/s/nQ0OL
