Since 2009, Boeing and Kenan have worked together on the Boeing TEL project that supports the development of teachers through training on innovative pedagogies and information and communications technology (ICT).
During Boeing TEL professional development workshops, math and science teachers learn to maximize the use of technology in the classroom to induce higher-order thinking among students. Furthermore, teachers learn to apply research-based methodologies, including project-based learning (PBL), teaching scripts, and sequenced learning. The combination of superior classroom instruction and technology helps students master content knowledge and develop vital 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, communication, and creativity.
In 2016, Kenan collaborated with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and Education Service Area Offices in Nontaburi, Nakhon Nayok, and Samut Prakarn to train 52 teachers and 25 principals from 21 schools, benefitting an estimated 6,000 students. In addition, 114 students participated in Kenan’s three-day PBL camp, where they applied technological, analytical, and collaborative skills to solve challenging problems. Since launching seven years ago, the project has trained 145 school principals, 579 teachers, and 200 master teachers, who have in turn enhanced the learning experience of more than 500,000 students.
