The National College for Education (NCE) in Hanoi has signed a memorandum of understanding on a comprehensive strategic cooperation and first contract of investment in KidsLoop classes at practising schools of NCE, a move to jointly promote digital transformation in preschool education through the KidsLoop Educational Technology platform.
Together, the goal is to transform education by integrating world-class curriculum with artificial intelligence (AI)-powered technology. Both agencies expect that this cooperation will positively impact more than five million children and over 15,476 preschools in Vietnam in the next five years.
KidsLoop is known in the EdTech industry for its unique learning platform of the same name, as well as its high-quality interactive educational content, Badanamu.
Through this partnership, NCE wants to incorporate KidsLoop as an advanced educational technology platform to accelerate the digital transformation in early childhood education, providing schools, teachers, parents a holistic view of how their students are learning.
The two sides committed to collaborate to deploy KidsLoop to more than one million preschool students across the country in the period of 2021-23.
In addition, KidsLoop is expected to be deployed in systems of English Language Training (ELT) across the country with the number of students reaching more than 30,000 each.
The two agencies share a common vision on the development of technology education platforms for preschool and digitisation of learning materials for preschool and primary school.
In this partnership plan, KidsLoop and NCE will work together to build KidsLoop's Ed-Tech teacher community as a premise for digital transformation.
The NCE will support teachers and kindergartens across the country to access and use the KidsLoop platform as a basic development platform for the school's digital transformation.
The KidsLoop Platform is a cutting-edge solution for educators to operate educational organisations oriented to student-centered growth.
Teachers can easily use the KidsLoop platform to proactively digitize traditional lesson plans into vivid, interactive digital ones backed with AI power of KidsLoop.
Proactively creating digital learning materials and lesson plans on the KidsLoop platform is also the first step in promoting a rich and diverse content library created by Vietnamese teachers and schools in collaboration with publishers.
Building a world class quality, rich in Vietnamese culture and language learning materials library for teaching and learning in preschool is also another crucial cooperation between the two agencies. The pathway of building this digitised learning content will start from the localisation of the world-class Badanamu curriculum and the investment in creating digitised Vietnamese language curricula for a long-term plan.
The NCE has always been a pioneer in applying technological achievements in teaching. Initially, the NCE will organize the KidsLoop classes in NCE’s Practical Preschools: Hoa Thuy Tien (Narcissus), Hoa Hong (Rose), and Hoa Sen (Lotus).
At the end of the first quarter of 2021, the NCE will support the deployment of the KidsLoop platform to NCE's satellite preschools across the country. Both agencies believe that this strategic cooperation is a positive movement contributing to the success of digital transformation in preschool education in the country.
