The Ministry of Education and Training, Microsoft Vietnam and Vietnet Information Technology and Communication Center (Vietnet-ICT) today jointly organised the launch of the “YouthSpark Digital Inclusion” project, amining to close the digital gap, inspire passion and develop knowledge and skills in computer science, computational thinking and ICT for students in rural areas.
The first phase of the project will be conducted within 12 months and aimed at building training materials in CS and ICT subjects at secondary level.
From 2012 to 2016, Microsoft Vietnam, Vietnet-ICT and other partners have implemented programmes on IT skills training and career orientation to nearly 10,000 under-privileged students in remote areas who have little or no access to this type of training.
“Together with Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) and Vietnet-ICT to kick-start the “YouthSpark Digital Inclusion” project, Microsoft would like to strengthen the commitment of supporting Vietnam in empowering the digital generation to transform the future, and contribute to development of the economy,” Vu Minh Tri, Microsoft Vietnam’s general director said.
“The new feature of this project's trainers training programmes is that the training content will be made into e-learning lessons and delivered through the online training portal of the MoET. With this method, not only the teachers/trainers in the project’s targeted provinces, but also all IT teachers in the country can get access to the project's training content at any time, anywhere,” said Nguyen Son Hai, director of the MoET’s Department of Information Technology.
