App for Cambodian Learning Online
On June 22, 2020, H.E. HANG Chuonnarong, Minister of MoEYS Cambodia, gave a speech during the celebration of Digital Learning and Distance Learning building to be repaired at Preah Sisowath High School according to live video on MoEYS Cambodia Facebook Page. He noted that digital learning is really important for Cambodia not only during Covid-19, but also after that as well. Blended learning will be used for our educational system with the support from Google classroom (Google Sheet) and other technology.
He also wishes to launch smart classroom (digital classroom) and video conference to be used in every school throughout Cambodia. He also gave special thanks to stakeholder who supported financially and technically. It should be noted that not only high school is going to upgrade for educational technology, but also some universities in Cambodia going for online education such Institute of Technology in Cambodia (ITC/Techno), Phnom Penh International University (PPIU), etc.
He also talked about the percentage of students (3 millions) throughout Cambodia as the participants to have smart phone only 30%, but other students can use it with friends as the group study with only one phone, another 30% expected for online TV education for more 30% while others can use self-study.
Finally, we do hope Cambodian educational system to be upgraded with educational technology soon and we can broader our experience with this technology with the start under leadership of H.E. HANG Chuonnarong.
