Since late 2019, the COVID situation 2019 has disrupted the education sector worldwide. Learning management in this "New Normal" world will have to change. Many teachers, parents and children face serious challenges in many dimensions.
Starfish Education has been working with the aim to solve problems in Thai education, and along the way we have noticed the strong hearts of many teachers; people who want to rise up to be heroes, to do anything for children during the COVID pandemic.
We believe that their quest is too challenging to do alone.
Thus, the Starfish Teacher Hero Season 2 project was born to find more of these teachers! People joined hands and formed teams of 3-4 to present innovative learning ideas that meet the needs of teaching and learning in the New Normal era in the following 3 topics:
1. Restoration of knowledge regression (Learning Loss) 2. Competency-Based Education 3. Wellbeing
A total of 34 teams of teachers applied to participate in the contest.
Out of those Starfish selected the top 10 teams, with a total of 39 teachers from 20 schools in 10 provinces across Thailand.
