In celebrating 54 years of educational innovation and technology, SEAMEO INNOTECH recognizes the invaluable contributions of our partners and alumni. The #INNOTECHtok Challenge is a delightful trip down memory lane, inviting our esteemed educators and leaders to share their INNOTECH experiences through engaging TikTok videos.
