  • Transmission guideline of Thai traditional-craftsmanship in the digital
           age

    • Authors: Manita Janchoungchot
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: From the past to the present, traditional craftsmanship has been adapted and developed according to the era through the continuous transfer of wisdom from generation to generation. Such transfer of wisdom includes the body of knowledge about various techniques and the value of exquisite beauty. However, if the development is focusing only on the products of the original craftsmen but not also on the creation of consumer groups and the means to present the traditional craftsmen work to suit the lifestyle of modern time, the craftsmanship will not be accessible and tangible to the people. Therefore, another interesting way to extend local wisdom is to create activities for learning and real practices. This article aims to study the approach for transmission of Thai traditional craftsmanship in the digital age. The study results reveal that the transmission of Thai traditional craftsmanship is divided into 4 methods as follows: (1) model development, (2) materials development, (3) tools development, and (4) production and marketing system development. All four methods must be developed together. Also, the study results of the trend of the general consumer behavior in the digital age revealed the following behaviors: (1) the increasing focus on the importance of the people who came in direct contact or experiences at present resulting in the longing for a deep and meaningful relationship, (2) the concept of self-acceptance which is different and more unique resulting in the more importance given to individual persons, and (3) the increasing realization of personal data security.

  • Enhancement of critical thinking skills in students using mobile-blended
           learning with a collaborative inquiry-based approach

    • Authors: Augustine Agbi, Pichayapha Yuangsoi
      Pages: 9 - 20
      Abstract: Despite the emphasis on the need to teach university students critical thinking skills that will better prepare them for the future, most classrooms globally are still fraught with the old-fashioned approaches. These methods only focus on equipping students with knowledge of concepts that do not sufficiently avail them with the required abilities to solve real-life problems in modern society. Jobs in the 21st century require skills that are focused on what individuals can accomplish with their acquired knowledge through analysis, evaluation and reorganisation of information to solve problems. To achieve this, students need to be engaged in active learning that encourages the use of their cognitive process, in order to sufficiently prepare them for the future. Cognitive development requires that learning should not just consist of repetitive accumulation of facts and knowledge, but must also encompass effective deep conceptual change in order to support life-long learning. After a thorough review of the literature that focuses on blended learning and the development of critical thinking skills, as well as the contemporary demands of the world of work, this paper concluded that, with the appropriate competencies and support for both teachers and students, mobile blended linked with collaborative inquiry-based learning has the potential to enhance the students’ skills.

  • Discourse of the postmodern jewellery: identity and existence of
           contemporary aspects

    • Authors: Supavee Sirinkraporn
      Pages: 21 - 31
      Abstract: The aim of the article is to present the contemporary jewellery creative process of Europe's progressive artists and designers who express postmodern aesthetical philosophy. Said philosophical concept emerged after the industrial revolution, a period that saw society as framed by rules and theories. Denying traditional beliefs and not believing in the ultimate truth or universality, the postmodern aesthetics is the total opposite of a life defined by theories and rules. The essence of this philosophy is a result of respect for cultural uniqueness. Postmodern aesthetics does not decide what is best or appropriate. However, it logically criticises the prosperity of the modern Western world, asking whether it really does lead to happiness, freedom and discipline. Change in the mindset has an impact on the study of jewellery design in Thailand, a country that still views jewellery as an indicator of status, rank and body adornment. In this regard, knowledge from studying the postmodern aesthetic philosophy in contemporary jewellery design can benefit artists, designers and students ambiguous. It is interesting to consider a creative approach, a relation to the ultimate truth of life, social phenomena, globalisation, aesthetic experience and conceptual development as elements that contribute to the production of new styles of jewellery. This study aims to create meanings and values of design as means to uplift the intellect and mind, that follow the trend in the 21st century. This is because, since the prehistoric period, humans have forged a deep relationship with jewellery as an object that connects the body, mind and environment.

  • Simplicity and independence: the beauty in Isan paintings in the Mekong
           region

    • Authors: Pisit Kobbun
      Pages: 32 - 38
      Abstract: This research article is aimed at studying the beauty and expression of Isan paintings in the Mekong region and appreciating the beauty of the paintings. The study sites are Wat Pho Kham, Wat Hua Wiang Rang Si and Wat Phuttha Sima in That Phanom District, Nakhon Phanom Province. On the study results, it is found that the concept of beauty in Isan paintings in the Mekong region involves simplicity and independence. The simplicity and independence are expressed through 3 elements: executing the painting using lines to create the boundaries of the images, color usage and composition. The simple and free presentation of the paintings is a method beautifying the paintings in a way that does not adhere to the strictness of using lines and colors and the sequential story arrangement in keeping with the style of the Thai traditional paintings of the artisans of the Central Royal Court. This facilitates comprehension of the stories through the images. The objective of this manner of painting is to focus on communicating Buddhist content and community traditions straightforwardly so that it can be understood easily and reach all classes of the population.

  • Border markets and livelihood transformation of Hmong people at the
           Vietnamese Chinese border: a case study of Can Cau cattle market

    • Authors: Ta Thi Tam
      Pages: 39 - 49
      Abstract: Since Vietnam implemented its reform policy in 1986 and normalized relations with China in 1990, the network of border markets along the Vietnamese Chinese border has witnessed greater bustle and development. Several of the local ethnic people’s marketplaces have been expanded and became trading hubs for various goods with other localities and Chinese markets across the border.
      This paper aims to study the impacts of these border marketplaces and the transformation of local people’s livelihoods, as well as analyze the benefits of these border markets to local ethnic minority groups. The research has been conducted with both qualitative and quantitative approach, including in-depth interviews, group discussions, participatory observation, and questionnaires distributed to 100 petty traders residing in Can Cau Commune, Si Ma Cai District, Lao Cai Province, where one of the Hmong people’s well-known cattle markets is located. The study results found that Can Cau-based Hmong people, who have been making good use of their location, have succeeded in grasping various livelihood opportunities, also by profiting from their social and cultural resources such as their ethnic relations, lineages, languages, and cross-border networks. This is a good example of the successful participation of an ethnic minority group within the borderlands’ economic integration process, although they are faced with market competition and the common instability of border markets.

  • Travel motivations to visit CBT communities adjacent to national parks in
           the southern region of Thailand

    • Authors: Jakkrit Charoensit, Dachanee Emphandhu, Noppawan Tanakanjana Phongkhieo
      Pages: 50 - 61
      Abstract: According to the analysis of the community based tourism (CBT) situation in Thailand, one of the weak points that was identified was the lack of tourist behavior understanding, including travel motivations. This led to development of research questions that seek to know what factors motivate the tourists’ decision making on their visits to CBT communities and also whether there are differences in tourists’ motivations among these study areas. Seven study sites were selected from a synthesis of CBT researches showing the knowledge gaps in communities that operate tourism in the areas adjacent to the national parks. The purposes of this study were: 1) to explore the components of travel motivations among tourists visiting CBT communities adjacent to national parks in the southern region of Thailand, and 2) to compare the travel motivations among the study areas. A four-level rating scale questionnaire was considered as a research instrument for collecting data from a sample size of 980 Thai and foreign tourists. The findings revealed that 1) eight distinct factors explaining 59.97% of the variance emerged from the factor analysis of the 37 motivational items extracted by principal component analysis and rotated by the varimax method. These factors were labeled: (1) physical skill development and self-esteem reinforcement, (2) nature exploration, (3) rest and tranquility, (4) security and comfort, (5) introspection and independence, (6) escape role overloads and crowds, (7) cultural learning and activity variousness, and (8) family togetherness and similar values sharing. 2) Travel motivations among the study areas were significantly different at the level of .05 in five components.

  • Intergenerational communication: the role of social media in generational
           perceptions and age stereotypes in Thailand

    • Authors: Nuchada Dumrongsiri
      Pages: 62 - 75
      Abstract: The world society is aging, with an increasing older population. In 2050, aged countries, those with more than 20% of population 60 years or over, are expected to represent 44% of the world’s population (United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division, 2015). Thailand is officially becoming an aged society in 2021 (Thairath, 2018). Evidently, communicating with older adults is inevitable. Then, it is to be questioned how people communicate across generations better. Social media allow people to be connected more conveniently. Possibly, this can bring people of different ages and generations closer and promote interdependence. This study investigated the influence of social media on intergenerational communication. Two purposes were (1) to study whether the use of social media influenced age stereotypes perceived by different generations and (2) to analyze generation perceptions resulting from intergenerational communication via social media. In Phase1 (N = 531), using LINE and Facebook made people satisfied with communication across all generations, but influenced age stereotypes towards the middle-aged group only. In Phase 2 (N = 326), interactions via social media significantly predicted how younger and older generations perceived each other – viewing each other positively in terms of abilities and personalities, but negatively in media behaviors. However, those negative perceptions decreased when the use of social media across generations was increased. Social media may serve as a means of intervention to trigger changes in age stereotypes and generational perceptions.

  • From online information seeking to native advertising exposure: examining
           the Thai millennials on online information cues, ad click-through and
           brand awareness

    • Authors: Wonghatai Tunshevavong
      Pages: 76 - 90
      Abstract: Three types of native advertising were examined: paid search units, in-feed units, and recommendation widgets. Online information seeking behaviors, online information cues recognition, and native advertising click-through behaviors of Thai millennials were investigated. Qualitative research was conducted. Methodological triangulation was used to compare data from in-depth interviews, observations, and coding sheets. Online information cues can be classified into two main categories: disclosure language and advertising executions. Participants recognized both categories as online information cues. Advertising executions were more remarkable when compared to disclosure languages. The advertising images used by in-feed units and recommendation widgets were product/service images, brand presenters, and brand name and logo. Text messages that participants frequently received featured all three types of native advertising. Participants pointed out that text messages of native advertising were persuasive, impulsive, and used straightforward selling messages. Advertising images and text messages were used to induce participants’ click-through behaviors and buying decisions. Recommendation widgets were the first type of native advertising that participants did not want to click through. Paid search units came in second place and in-feed units came in third place. Most participants knew the brands before being exposed to the click-through native advertising. Their intentions directed their online information seeking, communicating, product/service searching and buying. Without consumers own intentions, the opportunity of native advertising click through is hard to happen.

  • A reviewing and futuristic study of merchant marine education in Thailand
           universities

    • Authors: Sarawut Luksanato
      Pages: 91 - 99
      Abstract: Thailand universities face several challenges producing ship officers including the effects of globalization, changing environment and cadets’ attitude. This paper reviews the current ship officer’s education offered at the only two Universities in Thailand, conducts a 5-year futuristic study, measures the occupation confidence of current cadets, and proposes a strategic approach for the educational institutions. The research methodology includes direct observation, interviews with, and a questionnaire. Three future scenarios are derived through interviewing 8 faculty lecturers and current and former executives, using the Ethnographic Future Research (EFR). The measurement of a cadet’s occupational confidence index utilizes the Net Promoter Score (NPS) technique, with a sample of 200 students from the nautical science and the marine engineering courses. The study found that the offered curricula in these faculties must follow the rules and regulations issued by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Thailand’s Marine Department, and their respective Universities. These fixed requirements yield a higher cost of operations. Furthermore, the difference in the standards, the scarcity of qualified lecturers, and the reduction of prospective students are key challenges. Out of the three envisaged scenarios, the most-probable case is the frequent changes in the standards and regulations, the higher cost of training, and advancing technology impacting the nature of education. The occupation-confidence indices were measured and categorized for each branch of study, institution, and year of students. The results are negative in all sample sub-groups and become more negative among the senior students, which may affect their time spent working on a vessel at sea. The formulation of a strategic plan and subsequent conducting of operations should be consistent with the most-probable future scenario by being flexible adapting to changes in standards and in the educational environment and in preparing cadets for the international merchant fleet.

  • Ganesarangkura band: Thai classical music transmission based on integrated
           ternary systems

    • Authors: Weerakit Suwanphithak, Yootthana Chuppunnarat, Chalermpan Ruwicha
      Pages: 100 - 111
      Abstract: This qualitative study aimed to examine the history and background of Ganesarangkura Band. The methodology process began with specifying sources and key informants that were drawn using purposive sampling and snowball sampling. The instruments used in this study were document analysis forms, content analysis forms, and semi-structured interview questions. The data collection process included interviews and transcription. In the data analysis process, content analysis was employed, and triangulation was used for data validation. The findings were divided into four aspects: 1) biography of Mr. Chawalit Kantarat (the founder of the band): he had a love for and faith in Thai cultural arts. He did not establish a Thai classical music band for profit but happiness. The characteristics of Mr. Chawalit include preserving Thainess, being generous, helpful, grateful, maintaining Buddhism, carrying on Thai arts and culture, and uniting Thai classical musicians from different schools, 2) background of the Ganesarangkura Band: it was active from 1952-1985 and used Mr. Chawalit’s home as a place for rehearsal and knowledge transmission. There were four band directors: Kru Thee Peeprao, Kru Prasit Thavorn (national artist), Kru Pheuad Nakranard, and Kru Boonyong Ketkong (national artist). There were four types of ensemble performing in Ganesarangkura Band: ankalung, Thai Pi-pat, Mon Pi-pat, and Mahoree, 3) members of Ganesarangkura Band: the members consisted of professional and amateur musicians from various associations such as the Office of Performing Arts, the Fine Arts Department, and others, and 4) role of Ganesarangkura Band in social engagement: the band used a home system in uniting musicians for sharing and developing Thai classical music knowledge as well as serving society in both Thai culture and religious ceremonies. Though Mr. Chawalit was not a professional musician but he made Ganesarangkura Band’s role in the Thai classical music society explicit with a new management system and has never been seen in other bands.

  • Creative textile: the interactive art installation from Thai silk

    • Authors: Pichatorn Nualdaisri
      Pages: 112 - 121
      Abstract: Although Thai silk fabric is well-known for its unique characteristics including shininess, smoothness, luxury, and cultural richness; its weaving technique is still limited. A textile innovation knowledge and creativity will serve as the main developmental process. The typical looks of Thai silk include vivid colors, and flat, non-functional textures that make it easily recognizable as an old-style, traditional product. Nevertheless, the finished products from Thai silk are mostly fabric and clothing, creating new texture and function by combining Thai silk yarn with other types is still an uncommon practice due to the belief that it would decrease Thai silk value. This project was aimed to develop textile surface design from Thai silk yarn with the existing resources in Thailand. The modern textile innovations will be exploring and experimenting with the weaving technique and combining with other yarn types. The objective is to enhance value of the fabric surface to be more than Thai traditional fabric but utilize them as an art form, not as a conventional application in clothing industry. During the design process, the data information from in-depth interviews for users’ perspectives about Thai silkworm processing and species, Thai silk market, and textile innovations were collected. These key data will be analyzed and synthesized for exploring and experimenting on the new surface design for Thai silk. All findings from the experiment will be presented as Art installation based on “Art as Experience” theory for the audience to experience the value of Thai silk. Thai silk can be functional and creativity which are the key elements from each exploration that can be utilized to textile surface designs. Finally, the project will provide knowledge of Thai silk to silk users and designers in different ways of use, so the local Thai silk will become more attractive respectively.

  • Impact of general elections on financial market in Nigeria

    • Authors: Oyinlola Akinyede, Temitope Worimegbe, Thomas Ayodele
      Pages: 122 - 130
      Abstract: This study investigated the pre-and-post-event impact (PEI) of general elections on the financial market in Nigeria. Specifically, the study investigated the impact of the general elections on stock returns; money market and the currency market in Nigeria. Political instability increases financial vulnerability in countries having weak economic fundamentals and these are peculiar with emerging economies where political-institutional instability is on the rise. Twenty-four months data was analyzed comprising twelve months pre and twelve months post-election with the election month as the base month. The monthly all shares index, certificate of deposit issued, notes and deposit certificates, and official exchange rates for 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015 election years were used to examine the impact of the general elections on financial markets in Nigeria using event study. The findings showed that the political environment has strong synergies with the economic and real sectors of the economy. Therefore, the general election had a significant impact on the three markets. Findings also showed that the stock, money and currency markets’ returns were influenced by money supply and change in election periods. Therefore, the study recommends that government should engage in effective regulation of the financial market and electoral institution as well as stimulate the economy after the election through appropriate expansionary policies.

  • Multicultural mosaic' studying the cultural integration of
           international students in ‘Thai higher education 4.0’

    • Authors: Tony Waters, Michael J. Day
      Pages: 131 - 142
      Abstract: The cultural integration of international students in Thai Higher Education (Thai HE) is spurred by a government initiative known as Thailand 4.0, and has raised the educational bar. It is a lucrative move; increased university costs and access to home countries’ courses ensure capable international students now seek affordable degree education in Thailand. Thus, in this paper, we offer empirical findings based on a case study drawn across a longitudinal, year-long investigation. Using examples from a mixed-methods approach, we report a ‘cultural mosaic’ of multiculturalism resistant to cultural assimilation in our setting, which contrasts themes in Thai HE policy. This policy often embraces nationalist themes, found embedded in General Education (GE) courses and the habitus of Thai HE, which impacts the potential to integrate overseas students effectively into Thai culture and society. With this in mind, we question the nature of multiculturalism in the classroom, suggesting a changing phenomenon with implications for Thai HE’s future. Meanwhile, we use this paper to establish the validity of tools needed for critical discussion about learning culture across the Thai HE community as we move towards Thailand 4.0. We aim to describe the cultural integration of a growing base of international students, hoping to inform the development of Thai HE, which could be a world-class and leading platform for education.

  • Neoliberal values embedded in a Chinese college English textbook

    • Authors: Jing He, Adcharawan Buripakdi
      Pages: 143 - 154
      Abstract: Since language is not neutral, English Language Teaching (ELT) and English textbooks reflect sociopolitical, economic, and cultural reality so they cannot be value-free. Values in ELT textbooks can affect students’ thinking and behaviors to a certain degree. As we are now in the era of globalization and neoliberalism which is the dominant political and economic paradigm, this study aims to investigate whether neoliberal values are implanted into a widely-circulated college English textbook in China by conducting a Critical Discourse Analysis. The research questions of this study are “Are there neoliberal values embedded in a Chinese college listening and speaking textbook' If there are, what are the most salient neoliberal values' How are these values represented in the textbook'” The analysis revealed that there are many neoliberal values embedded in the textbook selected. The most salient neoliberal values found in it are entrepreneurship, individualism, self-responsibility for personal development and fulfillment, and flexibility. The embedding of these neoliberal values can be attributed to economic, social, and political factors in China. Consequently, raising college ELT teachers and students’ awareness of and developing their critical thinking abilities with the regard to the values incorporated in the textbooks should be one of the prime tasks of ELT objectives nowadays, especially against a global backdrop of neoliberalism and globalization.

  • Transformed gender relations in community-based tourism development:
           performing gender in homestay tourism

    • Authors: Tanya Promburom
      Pages: 155 - 173
      Abstract: This paper addresses how community-based tourism (CBT) in an ethnic Lahu community located in northern Thailand has transformed the village women’s gender performance. This pertains to how they leverage socio-political influence with economic gain acquired from CBT activities. Place-making, and how CBT homestay development has shaped these women’s struggles to negotiate traditional gender roles, in the domestic and public spheres, as well as in virtual (social media) and offline (household) realms, is addressed. With homestay tourism, place-making overlaps the public and domestic spheres. In the past, the women of this study endured mobility limitations that many men did not. Capitalism can open new social-ecological space. Tourism in this village has expanded. Resulting economic activity has transformed gender relations, particularly as women are playing primary roles in tourism management. They now have empowering connections with outsiders, and more socio-economic status. They are resultantly negotiating traditional gender roles, especially during high tourism season. CBT-derived earnings, however, now comprise a large share of their family’s income. Women, therefore, still cannot realize significant and autonomous family decision-making power. Moreover, women (as mothers, wives, farmers, and CBT entrepreneurs) perform multiple gender identities. They juggle a quadruple-burden struggle. As caretakers, this hospitality service has therefore reproduced culturally traditional gender roles. Another aspect of this phenomenon is that non-income-generating work (e.g., as a housewife and mother) has predominantly been deemed non-value work. CBT, however, has transformed domestic activities into value-work that is accepted by men and by overall society. Homestay tourism, by shifting non-market labor to market labor, hence blurs the line between the domestic and public spheres in terms of the social reproduction of gender roles. Concerning gender performance, these women, in some ways, are experiencing bolstered agency in online and offline places and spaces. This is positively altering how society at-large perceive them.

  • Quality of life and mental well-being as preventive factors towards the
           occurrence of juvenile delinquency among Malaysian adolescents

    • Authors: Mimi Fitriana, Megan Wood, Wu Shin Ling, Ching Sin Siau
      Pages: 174 - 184
      Abstract: Juvenile delinquency is a complex problem that affects the individual's social community and eventually the society as a whole. Despite the common knowledge and understanding of risk factors, the identified number of juvenile delinquency cases in Malaysia are at high influx with interventions to decrease its occurrence indicating the possible predicting preventive factors that have yet been investigated. Therefore, this paper aimed to compare the occurrence of juvenile delinquency in adolescents, in Kuala Lumpur, within the range of low and high quality of life as well as poor and good mental well-being. A causal-comparative design was used to identify the predicting preventive factors for juvenile delinquency among adolescents through the administration of Family Quality of Life Scale (FQOL), Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS), and Self-Reported Delinquency) to 224 respondents using a purposive sampling technique. Independent Samples t-test revealed the significant differences between the low and high group of quality of life, poor and good mental well-being, and gender differences. The regression model showed mental well-being as a significant predictor to prevent the occurrence of juvenile delinquency among adolescents. Implications of these findings contributed to the development of modules and interventions of preventing strategies for the delinquent behaviors.

  • The development of the job embeddedness measurement model of employees in
           the telecommunications industry in Thailand

    • Authors: Manop Chunin
      Pages: 185 - 194
      Abstract: The objective of this research was to test a job embeddedness measurement model of employees in the telecommunications industry in Thailand. The sample group was comprised of 510 employees. The research instrument was a questionnaire on the variables of job embeddedness categorized into three parts: fit, links, and sacrifice. The questionnaire consisted of 29 items. Content validity was examined by five experts. The discrimination power from the corrected item-total correlation was found to be between .327 and .660; while the overall reliability from the measurement of internal consistency using Cronbach’s coefficient alpha was .900. According to second-order confirmatory factor analysis, the results showed that the job embeddedness measurement model was consistent with the empirical data. The p-value was .01 of 2, CFI >0.987, SRMR ≤0.056, and RMSEA <0.038 fit the criteria which had the significance of 2, CFI=.92, SRMR=.80, and RMSEA=.07. The construct reliability of the overall job embeddedness of employees was at 0.93 and the three dimensions revealed the followings: fit (0.82), links (0.78), and sacrifice (0.87). Additionally, the average variance extracted from overall job embeddedness was 0.99 and for the three dimensions, fit, links, and sacrifice, it was 0.99, 0.98, and 0.98 respectively.

  • The texture effects of handwoven textile appearance of simulated and
           simplified forms inspired by nature: experiment on the use of selected
           local Thai materials

    • Authors: Kesinee Srisongmuang, Veerawat Sirivesmas , Eakachart Joenurairatana
      Pages: 195 - 206
      Abstract: Washing is a process in the life cycle of cloth that regularly produces effects that change the texture of the fabric’s appearance, mostly wrinkled surfaces. Since the durable textures of fabrics are created for utilisation and aesthetics, numerous artists and designers make textures that stimulate our other senses. To create the texture of textiles, the textures appear on the fabrics and the concept and style that those textiles convey. This research aims to conduct experiments on and investigate the texture effects in the materials using the inevitable washing process in the life cycle of cloths, as the key to the relation between inevitable change and the texture effects’ appearance, which were inspired by the constancy of change in nature’s system. This paper experiments on uneven angles of yarn twist and weft direction that were inspired by simulating the shape and structure of a leaf that was itself shaped by the natural evaporating system in dry conditions. The experimental concept examines the effects of its relation to texture and formation using handwoven textiles. The experimental method starts from studying the leaf through the inevitable changes to its textural appearance during its lifetime. The changes of the leaf’s form through its natural evaporation generates stimulating structures and simplified shapes that are mapped to textile weaving formats. Four types of local raw materials using local Thai handweaving were selected to be combined by twisting for the texture effect experiment. The materials consist of two fine silk and cotton combinations, two types of raw Eri silk, and handspun cotton that is bolder than the first group of yarn. The investigation shows that over and less than a ninety-degree weft angle of handwoven textiles in an oblique shape can be automatically performed by curving and rolling, especially with the material combination of handspun cotton yarns. The material characteristics of handspun cotton show remarkable texture effects when twisted with other materials. Furthermore, the shape of a leaf created by textile art is simulated in order to examine the data recorded for the hypothesis that follows the constancy of change in everything. As a result, the textile art shows its natural texture effects appearance.

  • Teachers’ roles in promoting preschoolers’ resilience in schools of
           the Bangkok metropolitan region

    • Authors: Apiporn Pengping, Sasilak Khayankij
      Pages: 207 - 216
      Abstract: The purpose of this research was to study teachers’ roles in promoting preschoolers’ resilience in a school in the Bangkok metropolitan region. This study’s aim was to assess two aspects of these roles: creating a learning atmosphere and learning management. The sample comprised 456 preschool teachers in schools that were under the Office of the Basic Education Commission, the Office of the Private Education, the Bangkok Metropolitan/Local Administrative Organizations, and the Office of the Higher Education Commission. The research tools were questionnaires, observation forms, and interviews. Data were analyzed by using frequency, mean, percentage, standard deviation, and content analysis. The research finding was that preschool teachers’ roles in promoting preschoolers’ resilience was at a high level. The aspect of creating a learning atmosphere was higher than learning management. This study also used data from observations and the interviews with preschool teachers, with a focus on how they encouraged children in their classes to become resilient. This involved creating a warm and a friendly atmosphere that encouraged children to feel a sense of mental stability. Moreover, this made children feel that they were part of the classroom, developed their social skills, and helped children to manage their emotions through opportunities to engage in play. Furthermore, encouraging resilience gave children opportunities to have new experiences, and to develop skills in dealing with problems.

  • The effect of meditation on metacognitive ability, working memory ability,
           academic achievement, and stress levels

    • Authors: Suwit Uopasai, Tassanee Bunterm, Keow Ngang Tang, Chuleeporn Saksangawong
      Pages: 217 - 226
      Abstract: This research assesses the impact of meditation training on the learning abilities of undergraduate students. The existing literature reveals that meditation can improve sleep, reduce stress, help people cope with anxiety, increase happiness, boost self-esteem, overcome depression and anger, and improve concentration. It therefore has the potential to solve undergraduate students’ learning problems. A quasi-experimental pretest and posttest research design was utilized to examine changes in the metacognitive ability, academic achievement, working memory ability, and stress levels of undergraduate students in a public university in Thailand following a meditation intervention. The sample comprised 60 healthy undergraduate students without neurological or psychiatric problems who were right-handed and had corrected-to-normal vision. The participants were randomly selected and equally distributed into control and experimental groups, the latter of whom participated in the meditation training program.
      Three research instruments: Metacognitive Awareness Inventory, Thai Working
      Memory Computerized Battery Test, and SPST-20 were employed to measure metacognitive ability, working memory ability, and stress levels, respectively. A univariate analysis was performed to determine whether the response variables were altered by the meditation. Initial results revealed no significant differences between the two groups in their metacognitive ability, working memory ability, academic achievement, and stress levels before the intervention. Following the intervention, significant differences were observed in all four dependent variables, including an improvement in metacognitive and working memory abilities and a reduction in stress levels. Furthermore, the experimental group exhibited better average academic achievement than the control group. In conclusion, meditation training can successfully promote metacognitive ability, working memory ability, and academic achievement while simultaneously reducing stress levels.
