Promoting Teamwork Skills Among Thai Pre-service Teachers Through Gamification on Cloud Technology


Given that gamification has been applied in the classroom to stimulate students’ participation for successful learning, this study investigates the extent to which cloud-based gamification promotes undergraduate students’ teamwork skills. Thirty-one first-year pre-service teachers majoring in physical education at Phranakhon Si Ayutthaya Rajabhat University in Thailand worked in groups of three or four to produce instructional media in physical education using cloud-based gamification and graphic design in a semester-long educational innovation course. At the end of the course, teacher-, peer-, and self-assessments of student teamwork skills were conducted using a holistic teamwork skills evaluation covering five evaluation categories, i.e. participation, task achievement, peer interaction, responsibility, and students’ use of resources. In addition, teamwork skills were also assessed by the researcher through classroom observation. Results showed that the scores of the participants’ teamwork skills were over 75%, showing a high level of student participation while completing the assigned tasks. Further results revealed that learning activities integrating gamification on cloud technology promote not only teamwork skills among students but also student-teacher interaction and student learning achievement. It can be concluded from the present study that gamification is a useful tool for teachers to design innovative learning activities that promote students’ innovation, cooperation and problem-solving in the classroom.
