Saturday School Foundation

Stepping into 7 years of Saturday School:
In 2020, Saturday School Foundation has been supported and cooperated by the government, private, and international organizations for making differences to Thai education. We all have the same intention which aims to see the relentless development of Thai education.

Saturday School Foundation is an educational non-profit foundation who creates a learning space that allows everyone to participate in the development of Thai education. With the belief that everyone in society can be the one who makes a difference of Thai education by encouraging children to dare to follow their dreams, to perfectly develop their potential and to become a person who can make a difference in their community and society.

Starting the year with “Big Day”–the day giving students exhibit their talents–from these 2 projects.

Saturday School Season 8.5

Because “learning is not only in the classroom,”  so learning from activities ,which are improving life skills and  21st-century skills to make Thai children grow up strongly, is important. Volunteer teachers collaboratively designed the learning activities with Activity-Based Learning. Therefore, season 8.5 was not limited to learning only in the classroom by the concepts of “Everything is learning” and “Everything is possible

Saturday School

From Home

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, normal on-site classes were no longer possible. However, the volunteers in the 4.0 generation were not worried because of the skills and expertise in using online tools that they have. So, the volunteers can pass on these skills to the teacher in the school system who is interested in making an online classroom and be able to adapt these skills on the application for education such as Google Meet, Zoom, Google Sheet, Google Slide, or Google Form.

Season 9 eco ใช้รูปแบบที่เรียกว่า “การสอนโดยใช้โครงงานเป็นฐาน” หรือ “Project-Based Learning” หมายถึง การที่ให้นักเรียนได้สัมผัสประสบการณ์การปฏิบัติจริง ตั้งแต่การทำความเข้าใจและศึกษาปัญหา ไปจนถึงการออกแบบวิธีการแก้ปัญหาด้วยวิธีคิดแบบ Design Thinking อีกทั้งยังมีทักษะสำหรับศตวรรษที่ 21 ได้แก่ collaboration, communication หรือ creativity

โดยสิ่งที่ทำให้ Season 9 eco แตกต่างจาก Season ก่อน ๆ คือ การนำเรื่อง “สิ่งแวดล้อม” มาเป็นโจทย์ให้นักเรียนและครูอาสาร่วมกันออกแบบ Project ที่สร้างประโยชน์ให้แก่ชุมชน และยังสร้างความตระหนักรู้ด้านสิ่งแวดล้อม (Environmental Awareness) ให้แก่นักเรียนและเหล่าครูอาสาผู้สร้างสรรค์ผลงานด้วย

Season 9 eco

“The novel, eco-friendly classroom” was initiated by our environmentally-conscious volunteers who planned to help our students develop essential skills in becoming global citizens and make our society more sustainable.

Season 9 eco used Project-Based Learning, which allowed students to gain real experiences from understanding problems and designing solutions based on the design thinking method. We also emphasized the use of 21st-century skills including collaboration, communication, and creativity.

Different from previous seasons, Season 9 eco added a challenge for students and volunteer teachers to design a project for the community while improving their environmental awareness.
