Binh Thuan is one
of the coastal province of Vietnam with more than 90% of the landscape covered
by mountains, island and resident by ethnic minorities. In the school year
2015-2016, Binh Thuan Education and Training Department (Binh Thuan DOET) started
to apply VnEdu – a software developed by VNPT at all primary, lower secondary
and upper secondary schools in the province. The software was considered an effective
tool that can help schools to better manage its education activities. Provincial
education managers also need a comprehensive and unified data base for better
planning and managing education developments in the province. However, many school
staffs in remote area were lack of basic IT skills, nor understand the tool’s
features and could not use the software effectively.
Binh thuan DOET joined the call for proposals launched in June 2016 by FCB project for capacity development. After several evaluation rounds and negotiations, the province got a Grant of nearly 85,000 Euros for training and coaching for 370 education managers from 185 schools (over 436 schools in the province). The beneficiaries include 350 principals and vice-principals of schools in difficult, remote and island areas and 20 education administrators in DOET.
The training guided the trainees on how to use management features of the software for planning and reporting, use of e-books, messages, school website, management of official documents, statistical reports ...
These education managers are now using full features of VnEdu to manage the school’s operations. The software helps to connect teachers and school managers with parents effectively to follow up and support their children’s study. Thanks to the software, the school now have unified database that save them a lot of time in compiling reports, managing school staffs and making educational plans.
