With the commitment to improve education quality in Indonesia, Sukanto Tanoto and the family through their foundation never stop promoting education.

Creative learning environment, he believes, not only capable to improve the students’ ability to absorb the information, but they can also practice directly what they learn. The teachers should be able to implement effective learning methods with learning facility so that the students understand the point and capable to apply in their study.

The importance of creative educational instruments

Students are also needed to be freed to solve their problems to make them more independent and think creatively with creative learning method.
