Piarnpilas Piriyaphokanont and Silawat Sriswasdi

Abstract—This research aimed to study procedures and methods of integrating the learning process through images that can be experienced with dramatic science (DS). This study used qualitative research to analyze research methods, papers, and theories related to the concepts and learning theories of drama in education (DIE). After that, qualitative data analysis was used to analyze the content. The results showed that using DIE to teach and as a tool for learning management is an excellent vehicle in human development and creating change. Moreover, drama reflects the artistry and imagination of the creators, and when used as DIE, it can be carried out in a sequence of steps: 1) the preparation stage for the DIE learning process; 2) the drama production stage using theater or drama performances, YouTube enactments, or streaming videos; 3) the learning evaluation stage; and 4) the continuing development and improvement stage. In addition, it was found that the main factor affecting the integration of the learning process with DE is teaching managers (teachers), who must most importantly have good communication skills and creative skills.

Index Terms—Drama in education, imagination, learning, learning integration, science of drama.
