Dhammajarinee Prepares for Future Careers

By LInda Wagoner | Director of Outreach

Code School Finland's 2nd training module success
Code School Finland's 2nd training module success

Dhammajarinee taught Code School Finland’s second module

We are excited to report that Dhammajarinee has just completed Code School Finland’s second module, “Develop and Test,” for 136 students.  The aim of the second module was to learn about product development and game design while creating learning games and interactive apps. Students learned to develop solutions by implementing good programming practices such as design, iteration, debugging and ways to organize code.

 The expected student learning out comes were met, these were:

- Understanding design and development processes

- Developing skills in multimedia creation and digital art

- Implementing game design and gamification, i.e. the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (like a task) as to encourage participation. 

- Design thinking, collaboration, work-life skills, creativity, exploration, and self-improvement  

- Versatile use of basic computational thinking concepts and practices to create complete programs

These skills are urgently needed in Thailand. Thailand is facing a shortage of 713,432 skilled workers in digital services and only 3,500 new graduates are joining the IT industry each year. Additionally, just 8% of the population has the foundational digital skills required for work and only 1% are experts in technology. With 92% of jobs today requiring digital skills, Dhammajarinee graduates are being given the necessary tools and training to have a head start in any field they choose.

Visiting Panyapiwat Institute of Management

On 22 February, grades 10 and 11 students visited Panyapiwat Institute of Management (PIM) in Bangkok, a well-respected university offering the only program of its kind in Thailand—65% course work and 35% internship—ensuring that students are ready for employment upon graduation. DWS students explored the different faculties at PIM, while DWS teachers discussed how to plan lessons according to students’ skills and preferences.

PIM gives priority acceptance and many scholarships to DWS students.

PIM has trained DWS teachers to offer a broad range of PIM college-credit courses. High school students can enroll in these courses at DWS and earn up to six units of college credits that can be applied to a university degree at PIM.

PIM courses at DWS include technology, engineering and robotics, innovative agricultural management, nursing, English for business, and Chinese for business.
