Vietnamese Young Learners Program Recognized by International Teaching Community
Vietnam currently has 5.4 million children who are under the age of 5, but early childhood education has not been invested strongly, according to HundrED's assessment. Preschool teachers are also not fully equipped with the necessary tools and resources for their work. Fortunately, Kidskills exists to help give students more experience with technology.
“We envision Kidskills as a movement to empower and inspire nearly 400,000 preschool teachers to teach life skills in kindergartens in Vietnam and beyond,” assessed HundrED.

The team leader of the KidSkills Project is Nguyen Thi Phuong, a lecturer at Faculty of Information Technology - Vocational Education, Vietnam National College of Education. She explained that she came up with this idea at the end of 2019 with the goal of making computer lessons less dull for students while also helping preschool students focus on integrating skills training. Through lessons, live for the sake of children. Since then, Phuong has made it a point to incorporate the concept of life skills into the process of teaching Informatics to preschool pedagogical students.
According to the initiative, each group of abilities, such as communication, problem-solving, independence, fleeing, and so on, requires a different set of skills. To complete the package of learning resources for youngsters, students will use roughly 4-5 pieces of software. Paint, for example, is used to write poems and draw pictures related to the class's theme; Microsoft Word is used to develop lesson plans for that skill; and PowerPoint is used to assist in the creation of electronic lectures, among other things.

Furthermore, the project includes a set of tools in Office 365 to keep and write a study diary, as well as learning new software to cut, combine, and edit photographs and videos to assist students to present better lessons.
After 15 months of operation, the KidSkills project has directly assisted over 2,500 teachers in providing information on life skills and new teaching methods to 1,200 preschool students.
