  • The founder of the theory and methodology of using information technologies in teaching Russian language;
  • Developed the concept of innovative hypermedia educational and methodological complex in the Russian language. The concept has been implemented in a number of electronic textbooks on Russian as native and as a foreign language;
  • Put forward the principles of modeling and implementing hypermedia complexes in the Russian language based on hypermedia technologies: the principles of integration, integrativity, interactivity, openness, multi-aspect, redundancy and pedagogical expediency;
  • Proposed a new form of interaction between teachers and students during classroom work with the electronic environment. Interaction occurs with the help of pedagogical agents, such as “virtual classroom”;
  • Identified and disclosed the possibilities of multimedia technology for visualizing language phenomena and creating mnemonic supports using drawings, animation, and videos;
  • The author-implementer and editor of the complex of educational information resources on the Russian language for secondary classes of secondary schools “Federal center for information and educational resources” (http://fcior.edu.ru);
  • The author and implementer of an innovative model of blending learning of Russian as a foreign language using the latest information and communication tools (electronic and printed). The model is based on the leading role of independent work in the online environment and the interconnectedness of the stages of preparatory and communicative learning activities. These principles have been put forward and described in teaching Russian as a foreign language methodology for the first time.
  • One of the authors-implementers of electronic resources that provide distant and blending learning of the Russian language for foreign students in the framework of the project "Distant sub-faculty" of the Laboratory of information technologies in education.

  • Methods of teaching Russian as a foreign language;
  • Information and communication technologies in education;
  • Innovative activities in the field of education: blending and distance learning.
This article covers the didactic potential of the intelligent personal assistants (voice assistants) for reaching the communicative competence during the foreign language acquisition. The authors of the article emphasize that the variety of modern voice assistants embedded to the users’ personal devices (such as Siri, Google Assistant, etc.) and available for teachers as tools is necessary to study in detail since their functions and communicative abilities (although they have some visible similarities) nevertheless differ. These differences become especially distinctly when we use these “programs” at the foreign language classes. To illustrate that, authors describe particularly one of the newest voice assistants’ educational potential, the Russian assistant of Yandex – Alice, in Russian as a foreign language class. The article outlines the differences that Alice has with the analog voice assistants and describes its didactic capacities, as well as how they can be used from the very beginning of language learning. The authors of the research also present a system of the exercises with Alice, that supplements the blended language learning model for the beginners. The system of the exercises was tested during teaching Russian in several multinational students’ groups and the results of the experiment are represented in the study in detail.
This article is a summary of the theoretical and practical results of a large-scale scientific study of the problem of joint education of foreign students with non-native Russian language and Russian native speakers in comprehensive Russian schools. The study highlights the main stages in overcoming the difficulties of assimilation of migrant children among Russian schoolchildren in Russian schools. The paper analyses the effectiveness of attempts made by methodologists and teachers to overcome co-educational shortcomings. Traditionally these problems are solved within a differentiating methodology. By contrast, our research proposes an integrative way to solve the above-mentioned problems. An integrative approach is a dominant innovative feature of the work. The authors of the study singled out a set of principles for teaching the Russian language. Extensive research has shown that these principles unite a multilevel and multilingual team of schoolchildren in the general educational process and create a generalizing concept for teaching Russian to multinational and polyconfessional classes, including the use of specially-developed original multimedia tools, whose educational functions and structure are described in detail in the study. The article offers the results of approbation of the proposed concept and teaching tools in Russian comprehensive general education schools.
This article reveals the benefits of implementing "blended learning" in the practice of teaching Russian as a foreign language at the initial stage. The paper presents a brief analysis of the current state of the problem, describes the reasons for insufficient dissemination of blended learning in the Russian educational space and in the sphere of learning Russian as a foreign language. Then the article presents a complex model of blended learning Russian as a foreign language covering the levels of proficiency from A1 to B1 and describes in detail the components of this model, namely its three components: the stage of independent work with electronic resources, the stage of communication work in a group and the control stage. Special attention is paid to the principles of organization of independent work of students in the electronic environment, among which the principle of sustaining the motivation in independent learning, the principle of providing comprehensive assistance in the learning process, the principles of maximum variation and filling variability of electronic tasks, etc. play the important role. The article describes also a component of the classroom communication activities of students under the guidance of a teacher, which is based on the plotted and grammaticalized author's texts. The basic theoretical principles that constitute the description of the developed by the authors blended learning model are illustrated in the article with examples of the tasks, the texts and the presentation material.
