Darunsikkhalai School for Innovative Learning (DSIL)
Constructionism 2016 is held at Darunsikkhalai School for Innovative Learning (DSIL). DSIL is located in King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) close to the Chao Praya River and is only 20-30 minutes away from the river bank and city center. It is a fully integrated facility with various 3-5-star hotels and budget accommodation within short reach. The conference is located on the 2nd floor.
Established as a constructionist school, DSIL aims to be a concrete model for Thailand to better develop its educational system. Daring to be drastically different from conventional schools, DSIL had to endure immense pressure from concerned parents and authorities. In order to sustain, DSIL adopted the principle of organizational learning. This approach allowed DSIL to evolve and carry on while still maintaining its core values.
