Banpu : From Ideas to 14 Social Problem Solving Board Games by Young Innovators in "Thammasat-Banpu Innovative Learning Program Season 2"

11/20/2020 | 12:51am EST

Associate Professor Anuchat Puongsomlee, Ph.D., Dean of Faculty of Learning Sciences and Education at Thammasat University, stated, 'At the Faculty of Learning Sciences and Education at Thammasat University, we aim to take part in social changes for the better by incubating 'people' - the important factor for Thailand in moving forward. With the continuous support from Banpu for Thammasat-Banpu Innovative Learning Program, we have incubated people from the young age to be open-minded and equipped with Design Thinking - one of the essential skills in targeted problem-solving practice that also leads to creative problem-solving ideas for the best solution in certain circumstances. The learning crystallization is necessary for the teams to develop their board games for solving their specific social problems. After the trial of the games today, we have seen various points of views and solutions from all the teams which are all positively creative. We see this as a great start of the young generation's self-development toward a quality innovator for the Thai society in the future.'

The event special guest - brilliant, young artist and Youtuber - Zommarie or Marie Eugenie Le Lay, shared, 'I usually play boardgames and see it as a great way for me, my friends and family to spend time together doing a fun activity while also polishing up many skills. I found that coming to Games & Learning 2020 has opened new aspects of board game as a tool in solving social issues. It is such a great idea because the players not only learn about the issues but also face with fun and challenges. The 14 board games created by these 14 young innovators are really opening new aspects in social problem-solving and development.'

'Thammasat-Banpu Innovative Learning Program Season 2' has 14 finalist teams who are qualified participants to develop their skills to become new-generation innovators. The program started with the Module 1 where in-depth understanding of board game design and the design thinking skill were provided. The Module 2 Training covered game prototype development and game mechanic improvement to make the game more fun and challenging. The participants had an opportunity to present their board games for professional board gamers and other teams to play. The 14 board games by 14 finalists are as follows:
