Understanding Depression as Modifier of Social and Academic Achievement

At a recent webinar held as part of IOE’s Year 2019/20 Series on Educational R&D, Ivan Smirnov, Head of the IOE Laboratory for Educational Data Science presented about how students’ ‘digital footprints’ can help leverage our understanding of mental well-being in adolescents and the way it is related to academic achievement.

About Three-quarters of Teachers Who Previously Used No Online Resources Now Harness Them

Experts at the HSE Laboratory for Media Communications in Education have come up with findings from a large-scale survey they have conducted in association with the HSE Institute of Education, which aimed to gauge how well school teachers have been able to transition online amid Covid-19 directives that have temporarily shut down conventional learning. In all, 22,600 teachers from 73 Russian regions have been interviewed. The results propose that the overall assessment of how comfortable the Russian teacher corps have found themselves taking instruction to the digital dimension is more optimistic than what was first thought back to when schools had just set about moving online.

The ‘digital age’ of education has whirled in like a hurricane. Long-term, systematic strategies for the transition to online learning have been swept away by global challenges, and primarily the COVID-19 pandemic and measures to counter it.

The Rise of Cyberbullying: How It Has Come about and What Can Be Done to Rectify the Curve

As mobile computing and digital networking have witnessed a spectacular upswing in recent years, cyberbullying has become a pervasive occurrence that afflicts adolescents across dimensions of the modern digital realm. While continual exposures to various forms of harsh treatment online can inflict serious harm to the socio-emotional wellbeing of young people, adults around are mostly unaware of what is happening to the youngsters and often fail to come up with a timely and appropriate remedy. Eventually, as teens grow older, many of them seem to gradually come to terms with cyberbullying. A group of psychologists including IOE expert Alexandra Bochaver have studied what has underpinned the spread of harassment in the digital space and how students themselves perceive it.

How Child’s Phonological Ability Impacts Their Aptitude in Math

A recent study by IOE experts Alina Ivanova, Diana Kaiky and Yulia Kuzmina finds a link between the phonological ability of school starters (e.g., sensitivity to the sound composition of speech, the ability to identify individual sounds and syllables, etc.) and their capacity in math. The socio-economic status of the child’s family turns out to be an important modulator in the phonology–math relationship, the study suggests.

A recent study by IOE expert Ksenia Romanenko looks at how students perceive changes that take place across the academic and organizational domains as a result of university mergers.

IOE Student among Winners of HSE’s Academicus Modus Research Competition

A student team led by Evgeniia Shmeleva, a doctoral hopeful at the HSE Institute of Education, has claimed the victory in this year’s ‘Academicus Modus’ competition of student research papers. The project entitled ‘Control or trust: dishonest online behaviour,’ which is supervised by Evgeniia, seeks to explore possible triggers of peer pressure in online learning, the circumstances that lead to dishonest behavior online, and the role of physical presence in dishonesty.
