Honoring the Role of Teachers in the 4.0 Era
Industry 4.0 has profoundly changed every profession in society. Education is also facing this huge change. In the age of information technology and artificial intelligence, will the teacher lose his position and value? Dr. Do Manh Cuong, Deputy General CEO of Nguyen Hoang Education Group remarks, “Information technology not only helps humanity solve difficulties, but it also poses new problems that need to be solved.”
For each teacher of NHG, education is the path and the destination of life
Certainly, the need for education will not disappear, but the education industry will have to transform to meet higher, more complex needs. Likewise, a teacher who focuses on imparting knowledge will have to transform to become a new, well-rounded educator, so that they can take the charge of protecting human identity and develop young minds in a world with more challenges and dangers than ever before.

MSc. Mike Miller – Vice Principal of the International School of North America – SNA Saigon South proudly talks about the teaching profession, “Sometimes people ask me why I chose to follow the path of education, the answer is very simple: How many jobs in the world do we have the opportunity to make a difference to the future? How many jobs in the world do you have the opportunity to work with the young generation who will determine our own future? The answer to that is only a few, or even none. So every day, whenever you feel tired, frustrated, whenever you feel like you can’t take it anymore, remember that you are helping to shape the future of the world, you are making a difference to the future of the world by educating children to be the leaders of the future.”

For each teacher of NHG, education is the path and also the destination of life. Teachers will be the custodians to the good values that Nguyen Hoang wants to pass on to the younger generation. It is this knowledge team that is the bridge to carry out the Humanist educational philosophy, directly training generations of students – all-round students. That is also the reason why Nguyen Hoang always honors his intellectual team as a great pride during his 22-year educational journey.
