When someone asks you what the average Thai classroom is like, do you say it’s a place full of frenzied students working together to solve real-world problems and then begging their teacher to give them just five more minutes to perfect their work? Probably not. But this is the type […]
The very nature of jobs and work is changing rapidly, and our education systems need to adapt, or else an entire generation will be left unprepared for the 21st century economy.

Kenan knows there is a better way to develop students, and we’re at the forefront of bringing the best international, high-impact teaching practices to Thailand and the region.
Our programming elevates teachers’ ability to deliver hands-on, real-world learning that brings science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) content to life, resulting in students who have the “smart” skills, STEM knowledge, and inspiration to pursue their dreams.
