Ashgabat, July 6, /Arzuw NEWS/. New subjects will be introduced into the curriculum of Turkmenistan's secondary schools starting from the academic year 2020-2021. This was reported to Arzuw NEWS by a leading researcher National Institute of Education of Turkmenistan, Doctor of Philosophy Ogulgozel Redzhepova.
In particular, Italian will be introduced into the curriculum of some schools specializing in foreign languages. This initiative was promoted by President Berdymukhamedov in November 2019, during an official visit to the Italian Republic. Specialist teachers in this discipline have been trained for several years in Makhtumkuli TSU.
In addition, students in grades 8-9 of secondary schools will now be taught the basics of design. For this purpose, a special subject will be introduced, which will be a kind of continuation of drawing, but students will already be trained in modern computer programs such as AutoCad, QCad, Kompas, and general 3D design. This subject will complement the hi-tech disciplines introduced in recent years, such as modeling and graphics, basics of modern technologies, information-communication and innovative technologies.
