Also due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, face-to-face teaching was interrupted, teachers in the Nguyen Hoang Education System quickly adapt to the teaching trend of the new era. For NHG teachers, online lessons in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic were not only a way of knowledge sharing, but were integrated by teachers in the form of learning by playing to encourage students to keep up their studies and retain knowledge for a long time. 

Overcoming countless difficulties and challenges, the teachers have garnered many achievements in teaching. From online lessons, innovations in teaching, teachers of iSchool, UKA, IEC have been recognized by Microsoft Corporation as an innovative education expert - MIE Expert in 2021.

The stage is filled with school colors of the Teacher Award 2021.

It is touching to see the pride in our teachers when talking about the profession they have chosen. Ms. Le Thi Duong, a nanny who has been with iSchool Ha Tinh for the past 5 years, said she is very proud of her job. She shared about her simple happiness, “Every day I get to take care of the children, see them study and play in a clean environment with the care and love of teachers, children coming to school on safe school buses. Those are my daily moments of happiness.”

Mr. Mike Miller - Vice Principal of North American International School SNA South Saigon proudly talks about his teaching career, “Sometimes people ask me why I choose to follow the path of education, the answer is very simple. How many jobs in the world do we have the opportunity to make a difference in the future? How many jobs in the world do you have the opportunity to work with the young generation who will determine our own future? The answer to that is only a few or even none. So every day, whenever you feel tired, frustrated, feel like you can't take it anymore, remember that you are helping to shape the future of the world, you are making a difference to the future of the world by educating children to be the leaders of the future.”

Honoring the role of Teachers of the 4.0 era

The 4.0 Digital Era has profoundly changed every profession in society. Education is also facing this huge change. Speaking at the TEACHER AWARD 2021 program, Dr. Do Manh Cuong – Deputy CEO of Nguyen Hoang Group shared, “We are living in a special era, the era of information technology and artificial intelligence. When someone comes up with a question, just one click, immediately millions of answers are given. Or the great advancement of artificial intelligence has made Saudi Arabia grant citizenship to the android Sophia. Many people worry, will the teacher lose their position and value? Will the teaching profession disappear like many other jobs in society? Let's ask ourselves, of the millions of answers given by computers, how do we know which is the most valuable, relevant, and trustworthy answer? People will be lost, not because of lack of information, but because there is no light or compass to guide on that vast sea of information. Information technology not only helps humanity to solve problems, but it also poses new problems that need to be solved.”

Mr. Do Manh Cuong said that, in this era as well as in the future, the need for education has not disappeared, but the education industry will have to change to meet higher and more complex needs. In the same way, a teacher who focuses on imparting knowledge will have to transform to become a new educator on the basis of an well-rounded human being, so that they can preserve people’s humanity and develop them safely in the world with more challenges and dangers than ever before. “The possibilities of technology are always limited in the face of infinite human need to grow with love. Human education has the ability to help people understand more, have more superior abilities, and love more. The philosophy of Human Education helps us understand that”, Dr. Do Manh Cuong emphasized.
