As an initiative of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (SEAMEO) to address the different areas of education in Southeast Asia, the SEAMEO School Hub is a programme that will support SEAMEO Priority Area Number 7; Adopting 21st Century Curriculum. It is important that the people of Southeast Asia acquire the knowledge, skills and values needed to effectively respond to the changing global context of the 21st Century, especially due since the era has become fast-pace and ever changing.
With the rise of technology and the internet, it is obvious that the education sector needs to take the opportunity to reap the benefits. As such, the SEAMEO School Hub is a programme that will provide an online platform for teachers and education personnel to transfer their skills and knowledge from traditional classroom teaching to the modern medium of online teaching; allowing them to build upon their capacity in knowledge delivery.
