On May 15th, the secretary of education of Bogota City and her deputy, as well as the secretary of education of Tunja City, visited Visang Education's headquarters and English academies in order to establish a fruitful relationship.
Visang Education has received widespread praise in the domestic market for its extremely successful study approaches and economically priced offers. Furthermore, it recently expanded its global footprint, increasing its international importance. Visang Education was chosen as a provider of solutions to combat educational inequality in Columbia during last year's International Book Fair in Bogota, Columbia. Furthermore, since March of this year, a number of educational institutions in Bogota and Tunja have been implementing the englisheye program as a pilot education initiative, an innovative self-directed English language learning program introduced by Visang Education.
Following their visit to the corporate headquarters, the secretaries of the two cities' education offices visited a prestigious English academy in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province, with the goal of observing the operation of the englisheye in a learning environment and paving the way for the englisheye's expansion. Through englisheye, students get access to cutting-edge tablet PC technology, allowing them to actively participate in academy classes. After a student has finished the tablet PC learning process, teachers can submit feedback on questions and learning procedures using this form. Students can learn English using this strategy in a way that is comparable to how English native speakers learn their language through the usage of numerous content sources.
The secretary of education of Tunja, Jose Moreno, stated, "Having been impressed with englisheye's history and dynamic approach to empowering children to participate actively in their education, I chose englisheye." He went on to say, "It is clear from observation that children not only interact with teachers, but also engage in self-directed learning, which is truly admirable. This method promises organic acquisition of foreign languages."
"We have successfully distributed approximately 135,000 tablet PCs with internet connectivity to students in the city," said Edna Christina Bonilla Seba, the secretary of education of Bogota. “We go outside the classroom to encourage children to study English as a second language in the comfort of their own homes. While we are still in the pilot phase of the program, we plan to implement it in more than 200 schools by next year," she added.
Due to limited teacher resources and economic constraints, the Colombian education industry has strategically worked with a major Korean education corporation to develop possibilities for independent student learning. By merging vast teacher support resources and technological breakthroughs collected over time, the K-education system crosses human resource limits, earning international recognition and supporting accelerated globalization.
