guidance of the Organizing Committee of the Pedagogical Professional Contest,
Vinh University, the School set up teams and organized contests of specific
contents. In particular, the section of DIY teaching aids was held separately on
the morning of November 26, 2018 at the lecture hall A4-202. Attending the
examination, there were full presence of the teachers of the Institute, the
teachers who teach in the School and the students.
competition this year, the School divided the teams by
major, according to which there were 5 teams competing: the Math
Team A, the Math team B, the Chemistry team, the Physics team and the Biology
team. With the division of teams by major, the teams easily promoted the
strengths of the field of study, thereby contributing to a successful
In the exam
contents of pedagogical skills, it could be said that the test of Homemade
teaching materials was a strength of natural sciences. With this test, students had opportunities to create materials for teaching with high scientific features but very low cost.
At the beginning
of the program, teacher Nguyen Hoang Hao on behalf of the Organizing Committee
declared the reason, rules of the competition, introduced the judges and
members of the secretariat. After obtaining the permission of Assoc. Prof. Dr.
Nguyen Chien Thang - Head of the judging committee, the official competition
According to the drawing results, the order of the teams in turn was Biology – Mathematics and
information technology B – Mathematics and information technology A - Chemistry
For the Biology
team, with the advantage of natural sciences and strengths associated with
real-life content, the students of the team created a test kit for measuring very effectively the
heart rate .
information technology B Team, with the
advantage of the key members of the IT industry, created an application for
effective lesson planning and review. This can be a very good product for
general teachers to transfer knowledge as well as support students to review
and study old lessons effectively.
information technology A Team created a set of tools to support the
teaching of trigonometry, a subject that is considered to be the most difficult
to handle in the common mathematics sections. The kit was made of very simple
items, but could be a model for trigonometric quantities, thereby
helping students easily remember the trigonometric values of quantities.
with the advantage of being an empirical science, created the
Electrochemical kit, with the integration of the use of teaching electrolytic
experiments, electrochemical batteries or modulation exercises. Thanks to the visual effects, this kit induced students' excitement
and interest in learning a complex and difficult part of a high school
Physics team which was also an exam team with the advantage of scientific
experience and had many contents associated with production life, created a
set of tools to prove the results of vector addition which could be evaluated, this was
a highly creative kit, when applying other physical tools such as pulleys,
magnetic fields, .. in a kit.
In general, the
content of DIY teaching aids of the National Sciences Education School is always
highly appreciated for its scientificity, creativity and wide applicability in
high school curricula. In that spirit, in this year's competition, the teams
also created kits that were highly appreciated by the jury, even there were 3
kits that made it difficult for the judges to decide if whichever is the best.
In the end, the Student's heart rate kits was ranked first, the Physics team
and Chemistry team kits ranked second. The next tournament belonged to the other
two teams. The content of the DIY teaching tools competition of this year's
contest was evaluated successfully on both the scale and organization, promising
a successful pedagogical exam season of the Natural Sciences Education School.
