The discussion was successful, with the appreciation of the department and schools in the district implementing Khan Academy to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Mr. Sandeep Bapna, Vice President of International Cooperation of Khan Academy, was delighted by the impressive number of Me Linh teachers and students using Khan Academy Vietnam.
On October 29, 2022, the Me Linh Bureau of Education and Training and KAV held a signing ceremony for the “Spreading Khan Academy Open Educational Resources” cooperation agreement. The aim is to promote Khan Academy’s high-quality open learning resources with schools, teachers, parents, and students in the district.
During the signing ceremony, the Me Linh Bureau of Education and Training coordinated with KAV to train primary school instructors. In addition, the team requested primary schools to introduce and inform all staff, teachers, students, and parents of the program’s content, structure, and advantages.
The number of primary school students and their learning time on the Khan Academy by Vietnamese version is increasing, said Mr. Nguyen Tien Dung, Vice Director of the Me Linh Bureau of Education and Training. During the process, KAV regularly confers with the Bureau of Education and Training through Zalo, a social networking site. After three months of implementation, the program received high appreciation from teachers and students for improving the quality of learning. The number of students and their time spent on the platform is increasing, such as Quang Minh B Primary School, with 114630 learning minutes and 1319 students, which means an average of 86 learning minutes per student. The district will continue to promote the program to secondary schools after the 9th-grade program is published.
The seminar went successfully. With active cooperation, Me Linh district is becoming the leading unit in promoting Khan Academy Vietnam to Vietnamese learners.
