Starfish Maker in Thailand Public Schools
It was a pleasure to host officers from the Office of the Basic Education Commission, Ministry of Education to discuss further collaborations of the Starfish Maker projects in public schools in Thailand and the research on teacher professional learning model on May 4th, 2018 at the Eastin Grand Hotel Sathon, Bangkok, Thailand.
Starfish Education Foundation has a plan to roll out Starfish Maker project in 500 schools in Thailand from the academic year 2018, with the aim to build and develop in fundatmental 21st century skills through Project-Based Learning (PBL) and STEAM educational approach. We firmly believe that the project will be possible only with robust professional learning for teachers and Professional Learning Community so, we are going to provide blended professional learning through its gamification based online learning platform to more than 10,000 public school teachers.
I genuinely appreciate the contributions and time of our partners in the mission to provide access to quality education to all the children in Thailand.
