About our event

Students will be learning outside, armed with different devices, listening to a teacher of choice. Skills will not be assessed on paper but based on their performance in the field. Welcome to the future of education.

Technology is moving so fast that we don’t know what jobs will be available in the future. But most agree that the current education system, designed in the 19th century, will not help students thrive in the 21st.

In this 3rd edition of our "Time for Thailand" meet-up series, we bring together three veterans in the education and talent sectors from across Southeast Asia, as they share their insights into new technologies, new pedagogies and new opportunities for Thailand and beyond.
