Is ASEAN's education system future-ready?

Jessie Quek, Country General Manager, Lenovo Singapore | Oct. 12, 2015
Technology is allowing students to learn and work on the go, granting a variety of learning possibilities such as collaborating with other students on projects that take them outside the classroom.

This digital connection exists between teachers and students too, and can help educators to channel their pupils' attention to productive ends. For example, King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) in Thailand used Lenovo solutions to help teachers track the progress of students' work and provide feedback on a far more timely basis. This shared learning space isn't just limited to teacher-student interactions: collaborative learning platforms use the cloud to encourage students to review, annotate, and build upon their classmates' ideas, learning from one another in the process.

Transformative learning changes everything
Device mobility and cloud computing are two of the most important developments in modern education, enabling the transformative learning that in turn is evolving educational materials, processes, students and even countries. This is most evident in the emerging countries of SEA, which are showing a massive appetite for the incorporation of the latest educational technologies which are giving them a chance to accelerate their countries' development and close the gap with first world countries.
