HCMC to launch smart school model

Thanh Uyen

HCMC – The HCMC Department of Education and Training has sent a report to the municipal government on a project for developing a smart school model.

The project is expected to be carried out at all schools in districts 1 and 12, and Le Hong Phong High School for the Gifted in District 5 next year. The assessment of these schools will be then made so that the model will be available all over the city.

The project which will help the municipal education sector grow stronger for international integration is based on a scheme for turning HCMC into a smart city until 2020 with a vision to 2025, according to the department.

These schools will be equipped with modern technology to innovate teaching methods and contents.

Teaching, testing and assessment methods will be innovated and classified in line with students’ capacity. These schools will become the online learning environment anytime and anywhere.

The schools will include information technology systems, advanced and smart classrooms, IT and foreign language rooms, lab equipment, smart libraries, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) classrooms, and online training.

The schools will be installed with the systems of closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance cameras, education and management information, smart attendance-checking, and software for teaching and learning.

In late 2017, the HCMC government approved the smart city plan aimed at solving current shortcomings, and helping the city grow in a rapid and sustainable manner, and offer a wide range of services for local residents.
