Digital Learning Ecosystem Based on the STEAM Gamification Concept to Develop Innovator Characteristics of Vocational Learners


Developing the manpower to have completeness, including knowledge, skills, attitudes, morals, and ethics. It is an important foundation for the development of the nation for sustainable progress; as shown in the framework of the 13th National Economic and Social Development Plan [1], which aims to develop human resources in all dimensions, and at all ages to become good, competent, qualified, ready for life in the 11th century; The STEAM Education is a model of learning management that focuses on integrating knowledge in the five sciences, namely Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics to create a comprehensive body of knowledge for learners; As for the learning process with the Gamification, it is the concept of organizing activities that will encourage learners to participate, create a good learning environment, and promote the characteristics of learners in working as a team, with the principle of the two concepts, if used in planning the development of learning management for vocational students, that focusing on professional skills development will help promote the potential of learners to meet the goals of effective manpower development; therefore, it is the origin of the development of digital learning ecosystems based on the STEAM Gamification concept to develop innovator characteristics of vocational learners, which play an important role in the development of the country, as a guideline for developing learners to have knowledge, skills, good attitude in working in the organization, or entrepreneurship in the future; it also promotes the lifelong learning characteristics of learners, from applying and utilizing the self-development process with the scientific and artistic thought processes that are possible to create innovations for solving problems and developing society and the nation in the future.

Gamers’ Total Experience and Game Motivation for Further Education Digital Manpower

Abstract—Digital Manpower is very necessary in Thailand today as the
growth of technology continues to increase. For example, tech giant Gartner has announced new technology trends every year including 2022, announcing the following technology trends: Total Experience, Composable Application, Decision Intelligence, Hyperautomation, Distributed Enterprises, Autonomic Systems, Generative AI, AI Engineering etc. The application of technology in daily life is increasing. The development of Digital Manpower is therefore very important in order to increase the knowledge and expertise of the country’s people
in technology. From the statistics, the country has increased internet usage in many ways. For example, from the statistics in 2021, Thai children playing games were number 1 in the world, and in 2022, Thai children playing games are in 2nd place in the world. But the problem faced with Thai education today is that children like to play games and think that they can study in the field of computers. But, in fact, students are not directed into the technology field taking into account their own aptitudes. causing the study to be not fully effective and some leave their courses midway. Therefore, this research is interested in the Confirmation factors of children playing games by collecting data on Gamers’ Total Experience and Game Motivation in order to analyze the data and discover the confirmation factors that direct the admissions to various computer disciplines. What direction and aptitude do you need to be able to enter a group of computer science disciplines in order to become a Digital Manpower in the country’s future development. The researcher has collected data from a sample of 630 people from all six groups in computer science. The confirmation factor was analyzed by
the LISREL program. It was found that each group of computer disciplines had different confirmation factors.

Enabling high performance digital manpower through higher education

ABSTRACT: This research aimed to synthesise the required competence of high-performance digital manpower for students in higher education. The study began with stating the problem, followed by a literature review to find core, congruous elements for a digital competence qualifications framework for undergraduates and digital manpower competence. It has been established that the competencies in terms of high-performance digital manpower for students in higher education consist of eight aspects as follows: 1) information retrieval and usage; 2) creativity and innovation; 3)identity and quality of life; 4) teaching or learning; 5) tools and technology; 6) communication and coordination;7)problem solving with digital tools; and 8) adaptive digital transformation. Guidelines for enabling high-performancedigital manpower involve enhancing digital educational competencies for higher education qualifications and developing a curriculum that allows students to use digital technology to perform their duties appropriately and efficiently.
