After completing this training, I did apply the virtual education tools from the Khanom Learning Center Virtual Exhibition to my teaching. This has helped my students to expand their research and knowledge. Knowledge sharing in classroom then became more interesting. Those online tools are very useful in emphasizing the value of energy, natural resources, and the environment. Our students also have fun creating new things from wastes.”
