From the 2019-2020 academic year, Iakob
Gogebashvili's "Deda Ena" will return to the schools with an adapted
version and will become an important teaching resource along with the existing
An adapted version of the textbook was
developed by the special commission of experts created by the order of the
Parliament of Georgia and by the order of the Minister of Education, Science,
Culture and Sport of Georgia - Mikheil Batiashvili. The book will be provided
to the students of all elementary schools free of charge.
Iakob Gogebashvili's method of compiling
the Georgian alphabet textbook was granted the status of an intangible cultural
heritage in 2013, and the national category was defined in 2014.
On the basis of the law adopted by the
Parliament of Georgia, the Ministry has prepared the Georgian alphabet textbook
by Iakob Gogebashvili's method. Given the high public interest in Iakob
Gogebashvili's "Deda Ena", a textbook was created that, on the one
hand, was based on national and cultural backgrounds, and on the other hand, it
is in full compliance with modern teaching methods.
The latest edition of Iakob Gogebashvili's "Deda
Ena" was adapted to preserve the author's basic methods, principles and
material, and to bring him closer to modernity. The archaic vocabulary has
partially changed, but the basic vocabulary that is still used today remains in
the textbook unchanged.
