Hanoi boosts cashless transfer and digital transformation in schools

Hanoi's education sector has promoted cashless payment in educational institutions.

Cashless transfer and digital transformation have been identified as the critical tasks for the 2023-2024 academic year of Hanoi's education sector, according to Tran The Cuong, Director of the city's Department of Education and Training.

He said the application of information technology and digital transformation is needed for good management as Hanoi's education sector is currently the largest in the country, with more than 2,800 schools and over 2.2 million students.

"Schools in Hanoi City have recently made great efforts and achieved positive results in applying information technology and digital transformation. This academic year, the Hanoi Education Department has decided to speed up the task and strive to be the country's pioneer in digital transformation," Cuong stressed.

The director suggested that all schools need to review their existing conditions based on the digital transformation index set by the Ministry of Education and Training, to effectively roll out the digital transformation ecosystem in terms of teaching, testing and assessment and regularly update information to the education sector's smart operation center.

Schools must also contribute to the digital data warehouses and utilize the electronic resources at https://study.hanoi.edu.vn.

In addition, the Ministry of Education has thoroughly promoted cashless payment to ensure the most convenient for students and their parents.

On August 25, the Hanoi Department of Education and Training organized a training on digital transformation in professional record management, integration of personal digital signatures and management of cashless receipts.

Tran The Cuong emphasized that integrating personal digital signatures into professional records management not only saves time and resources, but also increases accuracy and security, making it easier to process and share information.
