Education needs upgrading and innovation, like young grass eagerly longing to be bathed in the rays of a drought-stricken sun. And educators, with the mission of nurturing that young grass, need to think long and deep about how, in an increasingly advanced and modern life, traditional education should be changed to keep pace with the rhythm of the development of creative thinking in today's individuals.


1. The changes in the education sector over the past half-century


Reform, breakthroughs, and educational revolution have always been top priorities for a nation. Particularly for Vietnam, in the past half-century, we have experienced a significant turning point, marking the beginning of comprehensive innovation in 1986. At that time, the government had identified education as a top national policy. The development of education, especially general education, was recognized as one of the crucial driving forces for industrialization, modernization, and as a condition to rapidly build and leverage human resources, thereby promoting the sustainable economic growth process.


In the years of entering the renewal period, resolutions on education were continuously issued, marking significant strides in awareness of the importance of education. These resolutions and decrees rapidly integrated into daily life, promoting the improvement of intellectual standards, training human resources, and nurturing talent to serve the country's development. Thanks to these resolutions, education in Vietnam has undergone remarkable changes, achieved significant accomplishments and encouraging results: class sizes, the number of people attending school at all levels, and the variety of fields of study have all increased, and the teaching staff has continually improved in both quality and quantity.


However, in recent years, education in Vietnam has faced numerous challenges, with pressing issues such as the focusing on academic achievement, examination pressure, overloaded curriculum content, and inappropriate teaching and learning methods. Confronted with these challenges, Vietnam's education system needs breakthroughs in both the quality and scale of education.


2. Striving towards a modern and advanced education system


According to the strategic draft, the overall goal for Vietnam's education system by 2030 is the comprehensive development of the Vietnamese people, maximizing the potential and creative abilities of everyone. Looking towards 2045, the vision is to establish a modern Vietnamese education system, reaching the advanced level of the region by 2030 and achieving a global advanced level by 2045. To achieve these objectives, Vietnam's education system needs a significant "turnaround," comprehensively transforming and upgrading the traditional education system with characteristics that are no longer suitable, aiming towards a more modern and advanced 21st-century education.



While traditional education often emphasizes exam-centric approaches, leading learners to sometimes feel pressured and stuck, 21st-century education aims to learn and absorb knowledge for real-life application. In this approach, learners focus on acquiring only what is necessary.


Everyone possesses a unique thinking style and approach to knowledge, making the standardization of traditional education curricula no longer suitable. Instead, modern education leans towards personalizing the learning experience, allowing learners to access knowledge flexibly based on their interests and strengths.


Learning becomes dull when confined to mere knowledge transmission methods. 21st-century education values experiential and innovative methods, connecting dry facts with real-life experiences to enhance deep understanding and long-term retention in each lesson.


Traditional education places the teacher at the center, with the teacher as the transmitter and controller of lectures, while learners play passive roles of listening and note-taking. Conversely, 21st-century education empowers learners, encouraging them to participate in lecture creation, fostering initiative and creativity within each learner.


Before the advent of technology, traditional education regarded books as the most valuable resource for learning. In the 21st century, the integration of useful technological platforms makes learning more accessible, reduces boredom, and sparks interest in knowledge for learners.
