Educational Innovations and Applications

Main Article Content

Pimkarn Wasuwong


The importance of innovation is explicitly stated in Thailand’s 20-year National Strategy (2018-2037) and the National Scheme of Education. It is necessary for Thailand to pay attention to the development of innovations to support economic growth and enhance national competitiveness. In the light of educational innovations, change agents such as education authorities and school principals attempt to launch innovations in teaching and learning. However, many of them are marginalized due to a lack of knowledge of the applications of innovations. With this regard, this report presents the literature pertaining to educational innovations including the meaning and causes of innovations, phrases of innovations, factors affecting successful innovations and the evaluation of innovations. It is hoped that readers of education contexts will gain insight into innovation development and be inspired to create innovations theoretically and concretely in order to respond to the Thailand National Strategy, the National Scheme of Education and national competitiveness policy.
