The program "Waves and computers for children" aims to ensure the mobile coverage of all 283 points without mobile Internet connection in localities implementing social distancing according to the Directive No. 16/CT- TTg and carrying out online learning. It is supposed to complete the program in September 2021. At the same time, the program will also cover all 1910 points that do not have mobile Internet connections across the country. The deadline is in 2021.

To provide computers for online learning. Accordingly, phase 1 in 2021: It is expected to mobilize 1 million computers for pupils and students from poor and near-poor households nationwide; in the immediate future, priority will be given to localities that are conducting social distancing according to the Directive No. 16/CT-TTg and carrying out online learning.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh emphasized: The program "Waves and computers for children" is a temporary solution, but suitable in the context of social distancing and increasing social distancing so that pupils and students, especially those in remote and isolated areas, areas with special difficulties and disadvantaged households have access to learning conditions and equality in access to knowledge. However, this is a new learning method that requires teachers and psychologists to adjust the content, volume, teaching methods, and curriculum appropriately so that the children can absorb them well, especially for students at first and last grades. The program has profound humanistic meaning, contributing to the Internet coverage in areas where there is no signal and improving the quality of wave, realizing the goal of raising people's intellectual level, expanding social knowledge, and developing digital society. At the same time, the Prime Minister noted that because this is a new method, for the effective implementation, it is necessary to assess the multi-faceted impacts for long-term implementation, limiting the impact on equitable access and quality in education.
