After one year of implementation of the New Education Model with student-centered methodology, the new method has proved effective.

It has helped students to be self-confident and active in seeking knowledge; and the class atmosphere is more friendly and happier.

Teachers deliver lectures in class, give students’ clues for solving puzzles and parents help in assessments at homes.

Seminar participants remarked that teachers’ lesson plans are stereotyped resulting in no teacher creativeness, difficult application for big class and students’ not having equal knowledge.

For the next academic year, the new model would be multiplied in five primary schools in outlying districts of Binh Chanh, Hoc Mon, Cu Chi, Can Gio and Nha Be.

120 headmasters of primary schools and heads of education bureaus from 24 districts were present at the seminar.
