Abstract

              The objectives of this research were 1) to develop Executive Functions (EF) of early childhood children by using artificial art activities from waste materials through integrated learning management processes using problem-based learning and 2) to compare Executive Functions (EF) of early childhood children before and after learning through artificial art activities from waste materials through integrated learning management processes using problem-based learning. The samples used in the research were 13 early childhood children, aged 5-6 years, studying in the third-year kindergarten at Ban Prathai School, Thung Yai Subdistrict, Kantharalak District, Sisaket Province in the second semester in the academic year of 2021. They were randomized by simple random sampling. The researchers spent 8 weeks, 3 days per week, 60 minutes per day, for the trial. The total times for the trial were 24 times. The research instruments were 1) learning management plans for artificial art activities from waste materials through integrated learning management processes using problem-based learning and 2) an observation form for observing Executive Functions (EF) of the early childhood children, aged 3-6 years, according to the Executive Functions (EF) guidelines. The research was conducted by using the research plans that measured the research processes in every period. The data were analyzed by using mean, standard deviation, and t-test.

The research findings were as follows.

  1. The early childhood children learning the artificial art activities from waste materials through integrated learning management processes using problem-based learning developed the Executive Functions (EF) higher.
  2. The mean score of the Executive Functions (EF) of the early childhood children learning through the artificial art activities from waste materials through integrated learning management processes using problem-based learning after learning was higher than that before learning with the statistical significance at the level of .05.
