Students experience a New Zealand classroom in Thailand
ENZ’s Thailand team recently hosted 72 education agents and 46 institutions at an education fair.
Approximately 600 fair visitors, including students and their parents, were given a glimpse into what life is like for New Zealand students.
The fair was also attended by the New Zealand Ambassador to Thailand, His Excellency Ben King, who presided over the opening ceremony and welcomed all the participants.
A popular exhibit was the New Zealand simulated classroom experience, which showcased New Zealand’s interactive and hands-on learning and teaching methods.
ENZ Marketing and Strategic Relations Manager – Thailand Chortip Pramoolpol, said the simulated classroom experience drew a great response from fair participants and was fully booked for each of the four sessions on offer.
“The simulated classroom experience targeted students aged 11 to 18 years old".
“With Facebook Live in one of the classroom sessions, we were able to reach 43,282 people!"
“The top five locations for people to engage with the Facebook Live stream were Bangkok, Auckland, Wellington, Metro Manila and Ho Chi Minh City.
“We also launched a new registration and lead management system at the fair, which will enable us and education institutions to continue to engage with potential international students,” Chortip said.
