Samba School of the 21st Century: Learning in the Break Dance Community in Bangkok. Full Paper (Author) for Constructionism 2016

I spent a year exploring my interest in dancing. I got into a break dance community and Bangkok. This community gave me opportunity to observe and learn about informal learning environment. I had been involved in this community as a new comer dancer and I learned break dancing from informal learning resource. This paper was done as my first ethnography research during my time at Stanford. I had interviewed a dancer in depth and analyze the video clips and from my field notes to unveil how learning occur in dancers’ community in Bangkok to understand the structure of unstructured learning environment.

I presented this paper in Constructionism 2016 Conference in Thailand in February 2016. I was a conference designer and main organizer. We presented the work in Thailand to Constructionism community and also Thai arts and cultures both at the conference venue which is at Darunsikkhalai School for Innovative Learning and a trip to Chiangmai and Lampang for Constructionism sites visit.

FabLab and Its Learning Dynamic”   
Understanding Learning Environment Course ( My paper in Prof.Shelley Goldman’s class at Stanford.)

I am interested in observing learning interactions especially in informal learning environment. In this class that I took at Stanford, I chose to observe learning interactions in FabLab. I wrote about the dynamic of the classroom both how the teachers laid out the settings and also how the students interacted with each other and learning resources in FabLab. Thanks to Angi Chau and Heather Pang for your support to this visit at Castilleja School in Palo Alto, California, USA.
