With the innovative trend, education in Vietnam requires more interaction and practice. Therefore, educational programmes in the museum are required to change not only the method but also the contents. In fact, schools always want to have more interactive activites along with visiting museums.
To meet the schools’ needs, VWM has been developing and designing school tours to help students not only gain traditional values by visiting the museum or artisans, but also will share their knowledge and experience so that students can understand more cultural products based on a scientific aspect.
The themes of school tours are designed based on the ages and official curriculums of primary and high schools.
Discover social issues through exhibits
The museum is not only a place for collecting, displaying historical artifacts, but it also reflects current social issues through its exhibits.
At the museum, the educational programme with the theme “Find out social issues through permanent exhibitions or temporary exhibitions” will provide a good possibility for students to enhance their awareness, and it also shows their opinions and voices related to each social issue. From students’ opinions, we sometimes know that we must listen to the kids more and understand more about their thoughts on that issue.
The educational programme: “Find out social issues through permanent exhibitions or temporary exhibitions” is designed to help students develop their thought processes and debating skills when they face issues and improve their skills in teamwork and presentation.
VWM develops widely travelling exhibits in schools in Hanoi. This is the way that the museum engages closely with the public and creates an opportunity for students to access with documents, objects, images, and stories which has a link to the traditional magnanimous life and the struggles of the nation. Various and creative activities between the museum and teacher and students have been conducted, such as visiting the museum, meeting, sharing, and rehearsing a play, etc. Most of them attract students to take part in outdoor activities at schools
