On May 22nd, Visang (CEO Yang Tae Hoe) presented its vision for global EdTech at an educational event hosted by EduPark, a Thai education firm. The company announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the International Association for the Future Stem Workforce (IAFSW) to foster the development of Thailand's education industry.
EduPark intends to provide key personnel and teachers from Thailand's leading educational institutions, including IAFSW, with opportunity to see and learn from exceptional STEM and EdTech initiatives. They travel to important educational institutes in Korea, Japan, and Singapore every year. Visang was chosen as the representative Korean education company by Edupark this year.
The signing ceremony took place at Visang's Guro-gu headquarters, where Hur Woo Kun, group leader of Visang Education Global Digital Strategy Core group, Pornpun Waitayangkoon, President of IAFSW, Teerawat Prakobphon, Academic Director of TEDET, Jintana Pornraksamanee, CEO of EduPark, and several executives, as well as Thai science and mathematics teachers, were present.
Visang and IAFSW hope to work together to activate Korea's STEM education and related services in Thailand and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) area through this partnership. Visang, in particular, stated its commitment to actively participate in educational support by providing EduTech-based math program Math Alive, English program Challenge, ELiF, and digital educational services to enable STEM teaching methodologies experience.
In collaboration with Visang, IAFSW will create comprehensive STEM curricula and learning strategies, form a consortium for STEM-focused schools, construct school networks, and undertake research to customize STEM programs.
According to IAFSW President Pornpun Waitayangkoon, "the pilot project of the digital program Challenge for early childhood English, conducted in collaboration with Visang since the second half of last year, has received positive responses in educational settings." "The collaboration with Visang will provide an opportunity to enhance teachers' digital competencies for effective STEM implementation in educational settings," she added.
Hur Woo Kun, group leader of Visang Education Global Digital Strategy Core group, expressed, "it was a meaningful occasion to showcase the education landscape in Korea, including STEM education and our interactive classroom system, ICS." He went on to say, "following recent school visits in the UK and collaborative discussions on expanding into Latin America and public education, we expect that this agreement, which paves the way for our entry into Thailand's public education sector, will contribute to enhancing learning experiences in educational settings worldwide through Visang's digital classroom solutions."
