A new education model introduced by the Ministry of Education and Training has been described as an effective way to enhance learners’ self-education, dynamism and creativity that are important factors to shape their futures.

The Escuela Nueva VNEN model has many plus points such as encouraging students to work in pairs or groups, allowing their self-assessment, and actively voicing their own opinions during the lessons, heard a conference held on southern Kien Giang province’s Phu Quoc island late last week.

In the new model, students play a key role in the class while teachers serve as their facilitators and companions, which is different from the traditional pedagogic method, participants said.

This model has been applied at 1,446 schools across the country. Another 200 schools nationwide are expected to apply the VNEN, according to the ministry.-VNA
