Amnuay Silpa School, the first "thinking school" in Thailand, has joined hands with Thinking School International (TSI) from the UK to expand the concept to more schools in Thailand and other countries in Asia.
They would run TSI International Asia (TSI Asia) courses offering training to school administrators and teachers in Thailand and also other Asian countries to help them improve their teaching in line with the thinking school concept.
The thinking school looks at focusing on not only the subjects that teachers try to teach but also tries to teach students to think. Questioning is the big part. They are reflective thinking questions.
Studies in the UK found that students’ academic achievements were higher and they became more enthusiastic to study.
TSI Asia would officially begin operating from the middle of this year. It aims to expand the thinking school network to Malaysia.
