The activity was part of a learning project combining knowledge of Geography, Biology, Art, Literature, IT and Physics for seventh graders.
In the project, students learn Geography, Biology, Art, Literature, IT and Physics with fun in interactive classes using 3D Mozabook, powered by a school's partner, enabling teachers to directly prepare teaching plan and use 3D learning materials to provide interactive and creative lessons for students.
After three weeks of learning and preparing an eco-friendly product as well as the presentation, the students took the role of CEOs or salespersons to promote their products to the market. Future CEOs and salespersons did have a persuasive performance over demanding ‘customers’ (their teachers) about the products’ selling points, market development and commodity delivery strategies.
The students showed their enthusiasm throughout the activities. Student Nhat Linh of 7/10 grade said that the learning project is an opportunity to review what have been done to support the community in environmental protection.
She added; “Previously, I simply know that the ice-cream bars, pipes or paper boxes are reusable items but not knowing that they can make eco-friendly products such as air-filter.”
Student Bui Bao Tran of grade 7/8 was so excited at learning with projects saying that these projects helped her to broaden her knowledge as well as longer remember than traditional learning methods of listening to teachers’ speech and writing down.
‘It took three weeks for students to brainstorm and create everything under my direction”, said teacher-in-charge of the project Vo Thi Nen.
Despite their limited knowledge of a seventh grade, their creative products such as environmentally-friendly face masks with two-layer filters made from bamboo fiber, pepper-mint surprised teachers a lot.
Principal of Le Quy Don Junior High School Pham Dang Khoa said that the project was to provide both knowledge and soft skills for students.
Students acted as journalist, customer, speaker, artist, enterprise representative and practice skills like gathering and analyzing information, using IT devices, group work, communication, problem solving and presentation.
At the end of the Festival, students signed a written pledge to protect the environment.
