On June 17, the Russian State Children’s Library (RDGB) hosted an annual interregional webinar, which was attended by more than three hundred specialists from Russian libraries. The webinar was dedicated to the creation and promotion of video content for children.
Opening the discussion, the host of the webinar, adviser to the director of the Russian State Children’s Library, head of the “WebLandia” project, Natalya Arakcheeva, noted the popularity of this type of content for the children’s audience and its role in promoting various projects on the Internet. Such content is also in demand among readers of the RDGB. “Children consider video content to be the positive content of the Internet – this was revealed in the course of a sociological survey, which Svetlana Denisova, Commissioner for Children’s Rights in the Perm Territory, spoke about at the «Vector of Childhood» conference,” said Natalya Arakcheeva.
The participants of the webinar touched upon the issues of information security and the formation of an information culture in their speeches, discussed the important role that libraries play in shaping the personality of a child and in creating a unified information educational space. The issues of information literacy, educational work in the field of education and digital education were discussed at the webinar. Participants highlighted the video competition recently held by the WebLandia project as an example of creative collaboration between children and librarians in creating Internet content.
Tatyana Novikova, project manager of the Smart Internet Foundation, member of the jury of the “Weblandia Journey” competition, spoke about examples of promoting projects and educational content using video in resources located in the .ДЕТИ domain. She also reminded about the advantages of the domain for children and parents who speak Russian, and about the catalog of the best web resources in the . ДЕТИ domain, which presents high-quality educational, positive and safe content of the Russian-speaking segment of the Internet.
