According to a representative of the Ministry of Education, the goal is to create a new domestic social network for schoolchildren, which can replace TikTok. In addition, the application will offer a video conferencing format, making it an analogue of the foreign service Zoom. The latter gained popularity during distance learning due to the coronavirus pandemic. The minister expressed confidence that the social network will appeal to students, because it contains educational and developmental content.
Another advantage will be the lack of negative information. The latter is abundant on the Internet, and often does not affect children in the best way. Sergei Kravtsov's words were heard during a video conference with schoolchildren from the Nizhny Novgorod region.
