The equipment costs approximately VND1 billion (US$47,000). This is the second school to which Samsung gave the Samsung Smart School solutions. The first one is the Hoang Hoa Tham primary school also in Hanoi in 2013.
“The use of high tech in education helps young Vietnamese not fall behind in technology, and help them fully realise their learning potential,” said Pham Duc Doanh, principal of the Tran Phu high school, affirming that the school is honoured to receive this model and thanks Samsung for its social contribution in Vietnam.
“This model will help realise Vietnam’s dream of high-tech education and should be used more commonly in the country,” said Nguyen Huu Do, director of the Hanoi Department of Education and Training, at the ceremony.
Samsung Smart School consists of Interactive Teaching and Learning Management solutions. Interactive Teaching allows teachers to bring the material and tasks to each student through the connection between the interactive white board and individual tablets. Through this means, students can also send questions to teachers and vote for something, and teachers can also track the progress of each student and manage the whole class through the Learning management feature.
Combining the use of digital equipment and multimedia content, Samsung Smart School fosters interaction during the process of transferring and receiving knowledge. It raises the effectiveness of teaching and helps students actively engage in the teaching material and raise their independence and creativity in searching for and retaining knowledge. Samsung Smart School has been deployed in some schools in the US, the Middle East, Europe and Asia.
Samsung currently has three production complexes in Vietnam, namely Samsung Electronics Vietnam (SEV) in the northern province of Bac Ninh, Samsung Electronics Vietnam Thai Nguyen (SEVT) in the northern province of Thai Nguyen and Samsung Electronics Ho Chi Minh City Complex (SEHC) in Ho Chi Minh City.
