Teacher is the cheater, pupil says
« on: April 12, 2012, 12:24:25 PM »
A Mathayom 3 student of Satri Angthong School in Ang Thong province submitted a petition yesterday requesting an investigation into the behaviour of a teacher he accused of copying his work.

Accompanied by his mother and teachers, Thanaphat Prateepthong, 16, petitioned the Office of the Basic Education Commission (Obec) secretary- general Chinnapat Bhumirat, asking him to investigate Sompong Phomthongdee, a teacher in Suphan Buri, for plagiarism.

Mr Thanaphat told Obec that he and his friend had designed a software application named Kanban last year, which was later claimed by Mr Sompong as his own work.

The software application was a homework database for teachers to assign homework for students to do online. The application also sent a mesage to students' mobile phones to remind them of upcoming deadlines, which would also show up on their Facebook account.

Kanban won several prizes in several national competitions last year.

Mr Sompong, of Danchangwittaya School in Suphan Buri, had contacted Satri Angthong School and asked permission from the school for the use of the application, claiming that it would only be used at his school, Mr Chinnaphat said.

Last month, Mr Sompong entered the software application at the Microsoft Partners in Learning Thailand Forum 2012, where it won a prize for promoting best practices in education.

Mr Sompong then became one of the country's representatives to take part in the Microsoft Partners in Learning Asia & Pacific Forum, organised by Microsoft's operations in New Zealand, despite Mr Thanaphat's claims that the software belonged to him and his friend.

Mr Thanaphat told Obec that he learned about the plagiarism of his software application after Mr Sompong put up information about the Microsoft prize in a blog entry.

Mr Chinnapat said he had appointed Obec's Bureau of Personnel Administration Development and Legal Affairs to look into the case.

"The teacher denied the plagiarism claim and said the students' software sparked him to further develop his own application," Mr Chinnaphat said.

Alfie should enroll in this program.  He's quite good at trying to catch students who plagiarize their assignments.  Can you say Anal?

No reason to reach out so far to slap your "friends".   :punch

If the number bothers you, I can delete inappropriate posts right away instead of just moving them to our 'archive'. Then they won't be counted anymore. :rclxs0

SUPHAN BURI: -- A Suphan Buri-based teacher has been stripped of a Thailand Innovative Teachers Leadership Award after confessing that his prize winning software project was stolen from students in another province.

The competition for the teachers' award was held in early February.

"It is true that I have submitted the students' work under my name without seeking any prior approval," Sompong Promthongdee, a teacher at Chang Wittaya School, said yesterday via a Facebook message.

The message appeared on the wall of the Thailand Partners in Learning page.

On Wednesday, the judging panel of the Thailand Innovative Teachers Leadership Award announced on the same wall that it had already removed Sompong from the list of award winners, disqualifying him from receiving a royally granted trophy.

The award competition is organised by Microsoft (Thailand).

Sompong was among 10 winners who went on a free trip to New Zealand last month to give presentations about their works.

Sompong admitted the wrongdoing and apologised only after a teacher at Satri Angthong School exposed him.

"He expressed an interest in my students' project. So, I shared information with him. I never thought he would do something like this," Atirat Phumsakha said.

Atirat was the adviser on a software project developed by two students at his school, Thanapat Prateepthong and Pichaya Sunthornmaykhin.

The project won an earlier competition. According to Atirat, Sompong saw the students' presentation during the first competition and approached him to ask for information on it.
