Abstract

The upbringing of future winners of the IOI is a difficult task with many aspects. The best teachers and coaches in many countries are struggling to solve it. Up to now, ready-made recipes have not been offered. The experience gained in some countries could help to identify patterns of working with talented children, which have a significant impact on their success, combining the development of talent with the specifics of the child's age. This article describes the methods of preparation of Russian students for informatics olympiads, including the IOI, which have proved their efficiency for many years. Particular emphasis in the preparation of students rests on the development of their talent, not on solving many competition tasks. On this basis, the most appropriate ways of training gifted students, as well as the used information resources and modern information technologies, are described.
