Sayamon Insaard

Abstract—This research aimed to 1) study the learning style of the students, 2) study the media using of the students, 3) study the relationship between the learning style and media using. The 191 samples were undergraduate students from the faculty of Education, Ramkhamhaeng University who were studying in the first semester of 2017 academic year, derived from volunteer sampling. The research instruments were questionnaire on media using, and perceptual learning style preference questionnaire (PLSPQ). The data was statistically analyzed by percentage, mean ( x ), standard deviation (S.D.), t-test for independent samples, and Pearson’s correlation coefficient. The research findings were that 1. Three ranks of learning styles of undergraduate students of Ramkhamhaeng University were 1) Kinesthetic Major Learning Style Preference (KLS) ( x = 4.08, S.D.= 0.56) 2) Auditory Major Learning Style Preference (ALS) ( x = 4.06, S.D.= 0.52), and 3) Group Major Learning Style Preference (GLS) ( x = 4.06, S.D.= 0.65) respectively. 2. Three most favorite media using of undergraduate students of Ramkhamhaeng University were 1) lecturing of the professors ( x = 4.30, S.D.= 0.73), 2) printed media, textbooks, and documents ( x = 4.17, S.D.= 0.76), and 3) PowerPoint presentation ( x = 4.16, S.D.= 0.82). 3. The relationship between the learning styles of Ramkhamhaeng University undergraduate students was that visual learning style (VLS), tactile learning style (TLS), individual learning style (ILS), ALS, KLS, and GLS significantly related to all types of media using at the level of .01, and individual learning style (ILS) had no relationship to the lecturing of professors.
