Pattaya School No. 11 showcased the success of its “project-based learning” program for city officials and area educators.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome presided over the Feb. 13 “integrated project work exhibition” which included a speech from City Councilman Manoch Nongyai.
In addition to following basic Thai curriculum, Pattaya School No. 11 launched a program to improve the “thought processes” of Thai students.

The Thai Office for National Education Standards and Quality Assessment said research has revealed project-based learning has proved to develop students’ thought processes starting from planning, management, analysis, creativity, researching by themselves, along with using skills and talents in technology and other areas to work successfully with others.
Hence, the school organized an integrative project last year, the results of which were evaluated by ONESQA. On Jan 15, ONESQA determined that students’ thought processes were of a good quality level. Therefore, the school organized an exhibition to show off students’ work to spread and exchange information for future development.
