In the end of 1990-s A. Semenov initiated Russian participation in projects that encourage collaboration and networking in an open and flexible environment. The first was a pre-Internet project of National Geographic Soc. KidsNet where primary school kids were exchanging local environmental data (the most famous module of the project was AcidRain).

Experimental platforms of Moscow Department of Education

The process of introducing innovation into Moscow educational system assumes a stage of experiment and evaluation when a school or a group of schools (up to 100 and even more) serves as an experimental platform for running and evaluating a new technology or a text-book, or a didactical approach. Then a dissemination stage starts when the most successful experimental schools serve as pedagogical resource centers. Finally the innovation is used whenever it is needed and the schools are having permanent support to accommodate it.
Experimental sites run in Moscow since 1996 and involved more then 300 schools. Results of its activities make possible:
