This research aims to apply confirmatory factor analysis to identify the digital transformation components for higher education institutions. The research sample consisted of 300 personnel from agencies within higher education institutions, which are higher education institutions under the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, Thailand that use the database system on educational quality assurance called Commission on Higher Education Quality Assessment online system (CHE QA Online). The selection was the result of multi-stage random sampling from 100 higher education instructions. The research tool was an online questionnaire form on factors influencing the success of information systems in the digital transformation for higher education institutions by 5-level rating scale based on the Likert’s scale. The result revealed that digital transformation factor consistent with empirical data (p-value = 0.860), which consist of 6 components: 1) Strategy 2) Process 3) Product/Service 4) People 5) Data) and 6) Technology. The research findings help higher education institutions prepare for the elements necessary for the institutional transformation to a digital organization.

The objective of this study is to develop and evaluate a multicultural competency training model for digital publicists. It is research and development which the researchers have divided the research process into 3 steps. Step 1: Developing a multicultural competency training model for digital publicists. Step 2: Evaluating the suitability of the developed multicultural competency training model for digital publicists. Lastly, step 3: Adapting a multicultural competency training model to developed digital publicists. Furthermore, the study found that the multicultural competence of digital publicists consisted of 4 competencies: 1) Digital Engagement Competency, 2) Dissemination Competency, 3) Facilitation Competency, and 4) Consulting Competency. Moreover, the results of the developed multicultural competency training model adaptation for digital publicists can be divided the assessment into 3 areas including, 1) Knowledge: the sample group has higher scores after training, 2) Skill: the sample group has the overall multicultural digital public relations skills at an excellent level, and 3) Attitude: overall, the sample group has a superb attitude.

This research was conducted with the following aims: to enable master teachers to develop electronic tales for preschoolers using Stop Motion techniques according to the Early Childhood Imagineering Model (ECIM) process; to evaluate the quality of these electronic tales; to evaluate master teachers’ ability to develop these tales; to evaluate the effect of master teachers’ transfer of the development of electronic tales to early childhood education (ECE) student teachers; and to evaluate master teachers’ satisfaction with their development of these electronic tales. The sample comprised 24 ECE instructors in higher education, who were selected as the master teachers, and 480 ECE student teachers. The findings revealed that the master teachers were able to develop 24 electronic tales for preschoolers using the Stop Motion technique according to the Early Childhood Imagineering Model (ECIM) process. They also indicated that the quality of the electronic tales, master teachers’ ability to develop these tales and transfer their development to student teachers, and master teachers’ level of satisfaction with the development of these electronic tales, were all at a high level.

The objectives of this research were 1) to synthesize the model of early childhood Imagineering for developing digital storytelling; 2) to establish the model of early childhood Imagineering for developing digital storytelling; 3) to evaluate the model of early childhood Imagineering for developing digital storytelling. The research methodology was divided into three phases: 1) the documents in the Imagineering process, including the LA-OR model process and the stop motion animation process, were synthesized to establish the model of early childhood Imagineering for developing digital storytelling; 2) a model of early childhood Imagineering was established in order to develop digital storytelling; 3) the suitability of the model of early childhood Imagineering for developing digital storytelling was evaluated. The results showed that the model of early childhood Imagineering for developing digital storytelling consisted of the four following steps: 1) L: Leading to Learn consisted of imagination; 2) A: Active Learning consisted of two factors: Designing and Development; 3) O: Opinion Sharing consisted of Presentation; and 4) R: Reflective Thinking consisted of two factors: Improvement and Evaluation. According to an evaluation from experts, it was shown that the experts strongly agreed on the development model of early childhood Imagineering for developing digital storytelling.
