In the discussion session about Building an ecosystem for innovative interactive products and services for children protection and support on the Internet, FPT Corporation had introduced its online learning platform VioEdu. The session was held on May 28, 2020, in Hanoi, by the Ministry of Information and Communications in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund – UNICEF Vietnam.

The Deputy Minister of Information and Communications, Mr. Nguyen Thanh Hung speaking at the conference.

The proposal on “Protecting and Supporting innovative and healthy interactions of children on the Internet” during 2020-2025 was issued by the Ministry of Information and Communications, along with relevant officials, including: The Ministry of Labor, War Invalids, & Social Welfare; the Ministry of Public Security; and the Ministry of Training and Education, with the aim to help children safely approach and interact on the Internet, as well as improve the quality of children’s education and entertainment via technological applications.

According to statistics from the Institute of Regional Sustainable Development and Save The Children Organization in Vietnam, 66,1% of children now have access to Internet-connected devices. As Internet start to make its way into every aspects of life, children are the quickest to absorb information online. They are also the most impressionable and heavily impacted by technology and negative issues on the Internet.

One major problem in Vietnam’s children protect on the Internet is the “lack of high quality online resources for children’s education, lifestyle, and entertain; lack of programs for digital skills, lack of interactive education applications, lack of smart and useful contents for children, leading to children unable to safely navigate through the Internet.”

The proposal calls for Vietnamese tech companies to join hands in developing applications and producing useful contents for children to interact and create on the net.

FPT Corporation had joined the conference as one pioneer in educational technologies, and in creating helpful playgrounds for children. Notable among those is the online Math-solving competition Violympic –   one of the first and largest tech-integrated knowledge competition in Vietnam. We also cannot ignore VioEdu – which is developed from Violympic, and had inherited many of the competition’s successful elements. In 2019, VioEdu was also the only Vietnamese representative to have received the APICTA award for education – the Oscar of the Asian’s tech field.

Before introducing about the online education system VioEdu in the discussion session, Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh, Vice Head of FPT Technology Innovation Department, had highlighted that: “Children are finding bad contents because there is not enough good and interesting content on the net.” And having acknowledged such problem, FPT Technology Innovation Department is constantly research for a product that can support children’s education equally throughout all regions, minimize learning time, and maximize effectiveness, with the most interesting methods.

To be able to do that, the Department had utilized state-of-the-arts like: Artificial Intelligence, Adaptive Learning, Big Data, and even game theories in their product.

Currently, VioEdu is supporting and protecting children for healthy and innovative interactions on the net, by:

  • Providing a useful and exciting learning platform, with over 100.000 exclusively designed learning materials;
  • Providing a healthy environment for students to interactive and connect via a Math-solving competition;
  • Providing an innovation learning platform using Adaptive Learning, which can amplify 95% of children’s strengths, from which reduce 30-50% of learning time;
  • Providing a detailed management tool for parents, schools, and teachers, so that they can only supervise, but also understand clearly about students’ learning process and their achievements.

Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh’s sharing session and the online education system VioEdu had both received positive reactions and high evaluations from over 100 experts and regulators of various authorities in the conference.

Based on the many recommendations and suggestions from experts, as well as the results of the conference, the proposal “Protecting and Supporting innovative and healthy interactions of children on the Internet” is to be reviewed and subjected to the Government by June 2020.
