LESSONS FROM 3 SOCIAL DISTANCING CAMPAIGNS IN VIETNAM: HOW LEARNING THROUGH PLAY CONTRIBUTED TO AVERT A LEARNING CRISIS

Fighting COVID, dragon-style

Vietnam was one of the first countries to detect local COVID-19 cases in January 2020. The country took decisive action. With remarkable success: in the first 15 months, less than 3000 COVID-19 cases were detected in this country of 98 million citizens – equal to the daily rate of Belgium early 2021.

As part of the social distancing strategy, schools were closed nationwide from February to May 2020. Later, millions of children had to stay at home during periods of 6 to 17 weeks of provincial social distancing campaigns.

With the support of The LEGO Foundation, VVOB set up support mechanisms to prevent a major learning crisis, particularly for the young learners transitioning into primary school. This was not an easy feat in a very traditional, teacher-centred learning system. An online repository and national televised good practice clips reached millions of children, parents and teachers.
