Aug 31, 2012

August 31, 2012, Omsk – The Virtual School, a multi-service information and education project, was presented in Omsk (Russia). This project was implemented at the Luzino General Secondary School No. 2. The presentation involved Victor Nazarov, Governor of Omsk Region. Providing a school in Omsk with modern equipment is the first joint project under an agreement concluded in early July between Sberbank and the Government of the Omsk Region.

The classes of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics are equipped with special interactive boards, to display explanatory materials, graphics, diagrams and assignments for students from a computer to the large screen. Students can write, make pictures and draw on these boards with an electronic pen. The mobile computer class connected the computers of students and teacher into a single network with collective training programs. In addition, the teachers will have the opportunity to upload the information on students' performance in the parent portal and hold electronic parent meetings.

The Virtual School, a comprehensive national education program of Sberbank, was developed in 2008. Today, 14 Virtual Schools have already opened with the support of Sberbank.

"Supporting education and science is a national goal, and Sberbank is actively involved in the work to achieve it", said Stanislav Kuznetsov, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board, Sberbank of Russia. "Implementing the Virtual School charitable program is an important part of Sberbank's work in this area."
