  • A Structural Equation Model of Factors Affecting Effective Academic
           Affairs Administration of Secondary Schools in Northeast of Thailand

    • Authors: Duongjan Yuongsuwan
      Abstract: The purposes of this research were 1) to develop components and indicators of effective academic affairs administration of secondary schools, 2) to examine the congruence of the developed models of the components and indicators of effective academic affairs administration of secondary schools, and 3) to determine the congruence of a structural equation model of factors affecting effective academic affairs administration of secondary schools in the Northeast of Thailand with the empirical data. The scope of the research was 1,205 government secondary schools in northeastern Thailand. The population included the 1,205 directors/deputy directors of academic affairs. Stratified random sampling was administered to draw 400 sample informants. A 5-point rating scale questionnaire was developed to collect data from the sample informants. The reliability of the questionnaire was 0.98. Statistics for data analysis included frequency, percentage, mean, S.D., Confirmatory Factor Analysis, and Structural Equation Model (SEM). The results were as follows: 1) The effective academic affairs administration was consisted of 4 components and 16 indicators; academic affairs effectiveness with 5 indicators, academic leadership with 5 indicators, teacher competence with 3 indicators, and public participation with 3 indicators. 2) The developed models of the 4 components and 16 indicators were consistent with the empirical data. The factor loadings of these models ranged between 0.43 – 1.00. They were interpreted as acceptable as the range was higher than 0.30. 3) The developed structural equation model of the factors affecting effective academic affairs administration of the secondary schools in northeastern Thailand was congruent with the empirical data.

  • Impact of Social Class Background on General Cognitive Ability

    • Authors: Turhan Şengönül
      Abstract: Theorists and researchers have been discussing the relationship between social class background and differences observed in cognitive ability test points of children from lower social class families and their middle or upper SES peers. It has been discussed that for a more detailed understanding of these cognitive inequalities, it appears necessary to move beyond boundaries of psychology and consider sociological conditions or contexts as well. It has been asserted that social class background characteristics affect general cognitive ability over time. The present study introduces research exploring the impact of social class background on cognitive abilities of children. In Britain, the 1958 National Child Development Survey (NCDS), the 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70) and more recently, the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS 2000) conducted at the start of the 21st century are particularly relevant and nationally representative broad-based studies for exploring the impact of social class background on general cognitive abilities of children. It was observed that they provided scaled data and emphasized the impact of social class, particularly the role of parental education as an indicator of social class in surveys. Social class affected children’s cognitive abilities as early as primary school years and led to inequalities in their cognitive performance. Children from lower social class and lower socioeconomic status (SES) families suffered a clear disadvantage. Poor and disadvantaged conditions of the lower social class adversely impacted and impaired the cognitive ability of children. Given the fact that cognitive abilities play a role especially in later life, adverse impacts and impairment of cognitive abilities are regarded as alarming and undesirable situations in childhood.

  • Common Errors of Using Gerundial and Infinitival Forms in EFL
           Learners’ Writing

    • Authors: Itithaz Jama
      Abstract: This research focused on the common errors that EFL learners included in their writing. The frequent errors that the study focused on were at the micro level, specifically the structures that related to gerund and infinitive forms. The participants were selected from the English language department at one of the Saudi universities. They were undergraduates and passed the English Grammar 1 course in the program and were ready for the English Grammar 2 course. In this study, the participants passed through two phases. In the first phase, they wrote one paragraph individually in the midterm examination. In the following phase, they chose their group and wrote a paragraph during class time. In both phases, students received clear instruction including the topic, the grammatical rules, and the minimum number of sentences. The only difference was that students were allowed to discuss for ten minutes before writing their paragraphs in the second phase. To analyze the data, common errors were identified and classified from writing as groups and individual writing based on gerunds and infinitives. Then, the comparison between common errors was employed to understand learners’ written production when working individually and in groups. The results indicated that learners easily used infinitives better than gerunds. Learners also overused specific words to ensure that they used gerund and infinitive in the correct form. Finally, the same common errors were found and identified in their individual writing and as groups.

  • A Comparative Study on the Forecast Models of the Enrollment Proportion of
           General Education and Vocational Education

    • Authors: Qiongqiong Chen
      Abstract: Predictive research on the enrollment proportion of general education and vocational education is crucial to optimizing the regional talent structure and industrial structure adjustment. The reasonable enrollment proportion of general education and vocational education also plays an important role in the adjustment of the overall employment structure and the development of the regional economy. Therefore, it is imminent to seek a more accurate and reliable prediction model of the enrollment proportion of general education and vocational education. Based on the grey prediction model, exponential smoothing model, ARIMA model and BP neural network, and with the data of the enrollment proportion of all regions in China from 2010 to 2018 as the data sample, the enrollment proportion of each region in 2019 is predicted. By comparing the predicted values with the real values, it is found that the exponential smoothing model has the best accuracy and stability for the enrollment proportion of general education and vocational education forecast. Exponential smoothing model is used to predict the number of high school enrollment and vocational education enrollment, which is of great significance to ensure the reasonable structure of human resources in various regions and promote the coordinated development of the education system.

  • Sustaining Education by Actualizing Affordances of Social Media Platforms
           During the Pandemic

    • Authors: Faisal M. Almutairi
      Abstract: This paper draws on the affordances theory and investigates the ways in which pre-service teachers are sustaining social media uptake in learning by taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by the new delivery methods during the pandemic. This research is part of a descriptive mixed methods study. A questionnaire and in-depth, qualitative interviews were used to explore pre-service teachers’ perceptions of the affordances of social media platforms for learning and the actualization of those affordances. The survey and interview data were analyzed through the theoretical lens of affordance theory. The results suggest that the pre-service teachers actualized the affordances of social media by their knowledgeable use in a dynamic learning environment. The key findings are that the teachers perceived the social media applications to be flexible, useful and practical (functional affordances), bridges formal and informal learning and supported self-regulated learning (cognitive affordances), allowed pre-service teachers to assume new identities and discover learning as independent learners who had control over their learning (identity creation affordances), and fostered interaction and collaborative feedback (social affordances). Lack of guidance or lack of teacher presence was the main constraint. This research produces new knowledge and analysis and makes new theoretical contributions on the specific affordances of social media technologies. This study adds to and extends existing literature by contributing to an understanding of the actualization of the affordances of social media platforms.

  • Comparing Teachers’ and Students’ Perspectives of Student Engagement
           in Higher Education: Between Performativity and Invisibility

    • Authors: Paulo Padilla-Petry
      Abstract: Student engagement in higher education has been studied from various perspectives, but few studies have compared teachers’ and students’ perspectives on the subject. Considering that student engagement may be reduced to a performativity scarcely related to learning outcomes and that a good deal of it may be invisible to teachers, further studies are needed to contrast teachers’ and students’ views of student engagement in higher education. This article presents the results of a quantitative study about definitions and indicators of student engagement carried out with 118 students and 45 teachers of Law, Education and Nursing from two Catalan public universities (Spain). The results confirm the performativity associated with the concept by both teachers and students, and reveal that students may appreciate silent and invisible engagement more than teachers. The results also show that teachers may conflate signs of student engagement with good academic results and learning, risking an oversimplification of both student engagement and learning.

  • Teachers’ Feedback and Students’ Academic Achievement

    • Authors: Rami Abusa’aleek
      Abstract: The teachers’ feedback that is given to students has played a key role in their academic performance. Thus, it is essential to analyze this feedback. An observation card was used for data collection since it is used to analyze the effect of teachers’ feedback during the classes. The researchers analyzed twenty classes to notice the potential effect of this feedback on students’ performance. The participants of the study were 50 male tenth-grade students from a public school in Jordan. Findings revealed that students’ performance, particularly in tests, is judged objectively. Furthermore, it was discovered that providing accurate and detailed feedback reduces discouragement.

  • A Narrative Inquiry into Educational Decision-Making in Thai-Japanese
           Families in Thailand

    • Authors: Phetcharee Rupavijetra
      Abstract: In the past decades, marriage migrants in Asia, including Thai-Japanese couples, have increased. Previous literature predominantly focused on issues related to adaptation and integration for foreign wives into the host society underlining the hypergamous (marrying a spouse of a higher status) nature of their marriage, which renders the majority of husbands and non-hypergamous marriages understudied. Therefore, the current study focuses on a population that includes husbands and wives, Japanese migrants, and Thai spouses. This study is exploratory and employed a qualitative approach with snowball sampling, which resulted in the inclusion of five Thai nationals and three of their Japanese spouses raising children in Thailand as participants. The study aims to examine their educational decision-making, including the language used in each family and school choice, since the parenting process is a succession of adjustments in response to the conditions of society, where values are explicitly manifested. Data were collected through face-to-face or online interviews, and content analysis was used to clarify themes. Analysis revealed factors that relate educational decisions to preconditions, such as the place of the first encounter, socioeconomic status, and location of their home. Another prominent issue is the strong belief in the English language. All participants claim that their decisions were made unanimously, while their characteristics, high levels of education and overseas experience, the preference of Japanese spouses to live in Thailand, and their lack of knowledge about educational options in Thai society contribute to the rational recount of their decision-making process.

  • Study of Happiness with Online Learning in Covid-19 among the Students at
           Suan Dusit University, Thailand

    • Authors: Panpachara Pinchinda
      Abstract: This research examined happiness with online learning among 2,190 undergraduate students at Suan Dusit University (SDU), who studied online in the first semester of the 2021 academic year. The data were collected from online happiness assessment forms completed by the SDU students. Frequencies, percentages, means, and standard deviations were calculated, and t-tests and one-way ANOVA were performed to analyze the data. The results indicated that students’ overall happiness with their online learning was at a moderate level. The students were also satisfied with their studies at a moderate level. They were also moderately proud of the university and were comfortable with online learning, especially regarding the instructors, online instruction, the instructional activities, and lesson content. Students of different genders all enjoyed learning with the online instructional system, as arranged by SDU, at the same level. However, students from different majors, different years, different faculties or schools, different learning campuses or centers, and with different average monthly allowances, enjoyed their online learning at SDU differently.

  • Crowd Context-Based Learning Process via IoT Wearable Technology to
           Promote Digital Health Literacy

    • Authors: Pinanta Chatwattana
      Abstract: The crowd context-based learning process via IoT wearable technology [IoTW-driven Crowd context-based learning (CCBL)] is a new learning paradigm that integrates Technological Cybergogical Content Knowledge (TCACK) based on connectivism, cognitive tools and information processing theories to promote digital health literacy. In this study, the IoTW-driven CCBL was designed by incorporating content, cybergogical, and technological elements, which can become a sustainable solution in educational settings during the global COVID-19 pandemic. The researchers collected qualitative data by confirmatory focus groups from 12 experts who hold doctoral degrees or equivalent and have at least 3 years of relevant experience. The results of these studies found that the IoTW-driven CCBL involves three specific learning contents (healthcare, disease prevention and health promotion); five dynamic learning steps (context-aware alerting step; observing and questioning step; social information-seeking step; action step; and self-reflection step as all cognitive tools embedded in IoTW devices help promote all digital health literacy components); and four cognitive tools (notification tool; communication tool; searching tool; and monitoring tool). The IoTW-driven CCBL will allow learners to respond to real-life situations by utilising IoT devices to access, apprehend, appraise and apply health information from digital technologies in daily life for well-being, especially in educational settings.

  • Impact of Chatbots on Student Learning and Satisfaction in the
           Entrepreneurship Education Programme in Higher Education Context

    • Authors: Patchara Vanichvasin
      Abstract: There are many ways to learn how to be entrepreneurs and one of the powerful ways is to learn from successful entrepreneurs. However, it is difficult to reach and interview those entrepreneurs about their best practices in doing business in real lives. Chatbot technology can come into play in mimicking conversation of successful entrepreneurs and providing pre-programmed responses of their best practices drawn from interviews published in newspapers, books and articles. Therefore, this research aimed to examine the impact of chatbots in the form of successful entrepreneurs with 24 first-year graduate students, who enrolled in a master's degree of entrepreneurship education at Kasetsart university. Data analysis involved mean, standard deviation, frequency, percentage, and content analysis. The research findings showed that the developed chatbots were appropriate at a very high level (Mean= 4.75, S.D. = 0.22). The impact of chatbots was positive. Students perceived that their learning was better and their satisfaction was at a very high level (Mean = 4.65, S.D. = 0.44) with thoughts that chatbots were an interesting, innovative, and fun teaching way. This study indicated that chatbot technology positively impacted student learning and satisfaction. It can be implemented as a powerful tool to teach entrepreneurship in entrepreneurship education programmes in higher education context.

  • Analysis of Environmental Risk Perceptions and Scores of Preservice
           Science Teachers in Terms of Some Variables

    • Authors: Harun Bertiz
      Abstract: This research aims to determine the environmental risk perceptions of preservice science teachers (PSTs) and compare their risk scores in relation to different variables. The research participant group consisted of PSTs (N = 205) from the Faculty of Education in the Department of Science Education at Bolu Abant İzzet Baysal University in Turkey. The environmental risk perception scale (ERPS) was used as a data collection tool and the environmental risk perception interview form (ERPIF) was used during the interviews. A survey model was used in the research. An enriched design in which quantitative and qualitative analyses were used together was included. Quantitative results from the research show “radiation,” “factory waste,” and “hazardous (chemical) waste,” as environmental problems that PSTs consider the riskiest. The least risky environmental problems were “overgrazing of animals in meadows and pastures,” “commercial fishing,” and “open mining.” According to the qualitative interview results, “air pollution” and “factory waste” were seen as the riskiest environmental problems, while “environmental waste” was considered the least risky environmental problem. In addition, while the females had a higher environmental risk perception than the males, there was a significant difference between the 3rd and 4th levels with 4th level PSTs favoring a higher environmental risk perception. There was no significant difference between the environmental risk perception scores of the PSTs depending on whether they took an environmental course or not; neither was there any significant difference issuing from the educational status of PSTs’ parents.
