MOSCOW, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Parliamentary hearings on children’s information security in use of Internet resources will be held on Friday, March 14. Speaker of Federation Council upper house of Russian parliament Valentina Matviyenko, who also heads the Russian presidential coordination council for protection of children’s rights, will deliver a report on the issue, chairwoman of the Federation Council committee for development of information society Lyudmila Bokova told reporters on Wednesday.
The Russian senator noted that “literacy of children over safe conduct in the Internet remains weak.” In her view, this is mainly caused by lack of necessary courses in school curriculums. “Teachers lack electronic expertise,” Bokova added, noting that the committee recommended the Education Ministry to work out this issue.
Russian senators are expected to propose at hearings to create and test project “Children’s Internet” in a pilot region. The project will be launched in a new domain zone “.deti” (written in Cyrillic alphabet) which will have the limited number of websites that contain “a safe, positive and knowledge-intensive content” for children and parents.
Parliamentary hearings will also debate recommendations from experts of the Federation Council committee, particularly introduction of information security courses and setting qualification requirements to the skills of safe work in the Internet for teachers at secondary schools.
