The US Mission in Vietnam, STEAM for Vietnam, Scratch Foundation, and Hanoi University of Science and Technology, along with the Vietnam Innovation of General Education Foundation (VIGEF), have announced their collaboration to organise the 2024 Train the Trainers programme. This year’s theme will be “Computational Thinking and Generative AI Curriculum Design.”

The AI summer camp programme is part of a series of activities for teachers and university instructors to introduce them to computational thinking and the application of generative AI in teaching. The programme also builds a community of educators united in the mission to enhance the quality of education in Vietnam, creating equal and high-quality learning opportunities for all students across Vietnam.

The course includes 12 lessons and will be held online every Sunday from June to August, 2024. AI experts will lead participants throughout the programme. The main activities and lessons will focus on applying practical applications of AI in STEM education. After the course, teachers can create engaging, lively learning materials, personalise curricula for each student, and rapidly develop projects with generative AI.

Additional support for teachers, educational organisations, and educators will continue throughout the year with the STEAMese Festival 2024 in July 2024; Southeast Asia Scratch Educator Meetup 2024 in in October 2024; and a series of webinars on community development from September 2024 to March 2025.
