Starfish Maker is a program that aims to disseminate knowledge and to develop capacity for educators and learners through a system known as Makerspace. This is achieved by providing academic services, creating an online learning community, providing professional development for educators and consultation services, and opening spaces for children, schools, communities, and families to use free of charge. Starfish Maker's goal is to provide the opportunity for all children in Thailand to have access to quality education.
We also recognize the need for today’s parents and educators to have better and more consistent access to the tools they need to build their own capacity. With that in mind, Starfish Labz was created as Thailand's first online learning platform for teachers and parents. It is designed as a digital community for teachers and parents to learn, connect and share innovative resources that provide children with the skills needed to succeed in the 21st century. Content includes online courses, assessment tools and video resources that have been created and tested by institutions, organizations, educators and parents. Simply put, Starfish Labz uses education technology to elevate learning for children in Thailand.
We also support a Thai registered foundation, Starfish Country Home School Foundation (SCHSF), which implements the following programs -
