PMU-B collaborates with CodeCombat (SEA) to arrange the “CODING ERA: Future Wave of Thailand’s Education” event, as well as the introduction of the “CodeCombat” online gaming platform to develop abilities for future coding professionals.
The Program Management Unit for Human Resources & Institutional Development, Research, and Innovation (PMU-B) is organizing the “CODING ERA: Next Wave of Thailand’s Education” event at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre on March 17-18, 2023, in collaboration with partners CodeCombat (SEA) Co., Ltd. and a network of educational agencies. The event is one of the largest coding learning forums, with solutions to build learning experiences in the form of “Coding Edutainment” from the “CodeCombat” web-based game platform. The event will inspire young people to recognize the importance of learning about coding and to build coding skills and human resources that will fulfill the demands of the future job market.
Prof. Dr. Sompong Klaynongsruang, Director of PMU-B, stated that PMU-B is an agency that aims to assist and synergize power in the country’s creation and development of vital personnel by collaborating with network partners both domestically and globally. PMU-B also fosters collaborations with the commercial sector and associations to enhance skill development to meet labor market demands. One of them is the development of coding, which is seen as a future job skill required by every firm.
“The government sector has traditionally been at the forefront of coding skill development. The PMU-B, for its part, has worked under the supervision of the Office of National Higher Education Science Research and Innovation Policy Council, or NXPO, to extend the use of coding language to link with the establishment of a new career from the start to the end of every youth and generation. The PMU-B has collaborated with an important strategic partner, CodeCombat (SEA), who has played an important role in bringing the CodeCombat online gaming platform to use in direct teaching and learning to students, and has transformed the coding education system into a fun learning, capable of building rational and logical thinking that can be applied to the work of a new career at any time.”
Mr. Thepparith Senamngern, Chief Executive Officer of CodeCombat (SEA) Co., Ltd., said that the firm is a supplier of the CodeCombat web-based platform or coding game for learning in the form of ‘Coding Edutainment,’ and that it possesses copyrights in six Southeast Asian nations. Presently, the organization has taken a number of activities to pass on coding expertise while also establishing jobs and professions by partnering with the commercial sector to make employment agreements with young people who have learnt through CodeCombat. Recently, we collaborated with the PMU-B to create CODING ERA, a fantastic coding learning event in Thailand, to inspire young people and Thai people to recognize the importance of learning to code. This is to promote and support the development of coding abilities, which will be in high demand in the future.
It is a significant event for coding learning, as well as showcasing research in coding, AI, and robots, for the “CODING ERA: Future Wave of Thailand’s Education” event, which will be hosted at the Bangkok Art and Cultural Center on March 17-18, 2023. It is also a venue for academic conferences that bring together advanced coding professionals and researchers from across the country to share experiences that benefit youth and those interested in nurturing coding skills and competencies so that they can be applied in a concrete way, such as a keynote speech by Adjunct Prof. Dr. Anek Laothamatas, Minister of Higher Education, S.
There are also booths from institutions around the country showcasing projects that have been expanded and enhanced through coding, as well as various activities such as E-Sport Arena, a fun and thrilling competition, and participation in playing CodeCombat with a mentor to provide close advise.
Prof. Dr. Sompong went on to say that the CODING ERA event is a cooperation between PMU-B and CodeCombat (SEA), as well as a network of scholars from around Thailand, to arrange an academic event where students may study and have fun. The event fosters rational thinking and the development of ‘New Future Coders’ among young people. It also teaches coding skills that are applicable to four new occupations: agriculture, medical, working with robots technology, and mechanical work related to AI. Above all, young people and guests will have the opportunity to use the web-based CodeCombat, one of the greatest coding learning systems approved by the American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence in the United States.
Individuals interested in the future of education can attend the free “CODING ERA: Future Wave of Thailand’s Education” event on March 17-18, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Bangkok Art and Cultural Center.
