Abstract

Road accident is a major cause of mortality in many countries. In Thailand, youths have a higher rate of accidents than the average population. One of the strategic action plans is to educate Thai Youths in order to improve their understanding of traffic rules and to increase their awareness of road safety. This article is an initial report aiming to investigate the performance of four learning instruction designs for Virtual Experiential Learning (VEL) based on different learning instructional materials. This study compared the learning results between pre-test and post-test scores of four groups of participants. The results support the hypotheses that all the learning instructions have the capacity to educate the Thai youths on traffic rules. This paper also discusses the next phase of this study which will investigate the effectiveness of the use of Virtual Experiential Learning (VEL) with an aim to reduce cognitive.
