Three Vietnamese schools have been granted the certificate of Microsoft’s Showcase School program.
During a virtual ceremony on Sunday morning, three Vietnamese schools were awarded the Microsoft in Education certificate in recognition of membership in the 2021-22 Showcase School program.
They are the Wellspring Hanoi inter-level bilingual school, Vo Thanh Trinh High Shool in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang, and Sky-Line School in the central city of Da Nang.
The three schools will join more than 400 educational institutions worldwide to become Microsoft Showcase Schools during this school year.
The Microsoft Showcase School certificate is awarded to schools that are exemplary in implementing digital transformation and applying information technology to improve learning and teaching results, thereby creating an advanced education.
To be recognized for this title, schools must meet six criteria, namely commitment to transformation, culture of learning and growth, personalized learning and inclusion, future-ready skills, data-driven decisions, and Microsoft Solutions impact.

According to Phung Viet Thang, sales director of Microsoft Vietnam, Showcase School is the title for educational institutions with an innovative vision that recognizes the power of digital transformation to unleash the potential of students and teachers.
Microsoft expects that leaders of these schools will share and exchange practical stories and ideas about educational innovation, so that more schools can build digital transformation road maps, Thang said.
To Hong Nam, an official from the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, hoped that the recognition will create the motivation for schools across Vietnam to boost their digital transformation in teaching and learning.
The education ministry will promote the application of information technology at local schools and the improvement of digital competence among teachers in the coming time, Nam continued.
Digital competence involves the skills to teach, learn, and work safely and effectively in the digital environment, especially during the current pandemic situation, the official added.
