ICT in Education

In order for communities to grow into knowledge societies, it is essential that Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are fully adopted into educational systems around the world. UNESCO firmly believes that, if implemented successfully, ICT can contribute to universal access to education, the delivery of quality learning and teaching and the professional development of teaching.

For years UNESCO has been developing programmes and resources to help Viet Nam, particularly in regions affected by inequality and digital blackout, to provide ICT to its people. Viet Nam has taken UNESCO’s drive towards ICT in education forward and has made significant improvements in its nationwide access of ICT to all learners in education.

In 2008, the Ministry of Education and Training of Viet Nam launched ‘the year of ICT’ with the specific goal of revolutionizing curricula across Viet Nam. Since then, the Vietnamese Government has made ICT in educational institutions a top priority and throughout this time, UNESCO has provided continual support and developmental resources to its partners. This forward-thinking dynamic has provided the foundation for further ICT-based initiatives and has since seen projects, such as the ‘Learning to Teach with ICT’ course at the Hanoi National University, play a major role in the success of students and teachers.
