Abstract

This research aimed to a development of early childhood’s five minds for the future based on Gardner’s (2009) approach. The approach consisted of five minds: disciplined mind, synthesizing mind, creating mind, respectful mind, and ethical mind. The samples were 129 kindergarten students (5-6 years old) of 7 schools under Nakhon Ratchasima Primary Education Service Area Office 1-7, the second semester of the academic year 2014, which was selected by purposive sampling and willing for being participants.
The instrument was the instructional model for developing early childhood’s five minds for the future (or MINDS instructional model). The model consisted of 6 principles: learning from observation, paradigm adjustment, practice, interaction, evaluation, and reinforcement. Also, the model comprised 5 steps: motivating (M), inquiring (I), norming (N), doing together (D), and sharing (S). The data were analyzed by t-test.
The results showed that after implementing the instructional model to developing early childhood’s five minds for the future, it was found that the students of every school had increased mean score of five minds for the future at the statistical significance of .01. According to the result, it can be concluded that this instructional model increased early childhood’s five minds for the future.
