Classroom Disruptor: The proprietary tablet PC that's changing Russian schools

'School 1409 is part of a hugely ambitious experiment devised by Alexander Evgenievich Shustorovich, a wealthy Moscow-born entrepreneur with top-level political connections in both Russia and the US. On the surface, Shustorovich's project is a public-spirited attempt to bring Russia's education system into the digital era.'

'By gathering data from classroom test scores, exam results and attendance records alongside statistics from mandatory school medical checks and even food ordered by the catering staff, the system creates a real-time data chain which loops from individual schools, through regional hubs, to the Ministry of Education -- right up to the Kremlin.'
