‘MFU (Mae Fat Luang University) education Reformation’ day is an annual activity. Every year teachers at MFU join the activity to listen to an inspirational speech for a trendy education direction. In September 29th 2022, MFU learning innovation institute by Dr.Nikorn Rongbutsri led MFU teachers to have a brainstorm session to let the teachers to reflect the problems regarding the use of technology in the classroom especially the use of teleconference tools which was a part of EdViCon ERASMUS project. Dr. introduced a brainstorming method called tree analysis. The analysis technique is to use a tree image as a structure to draw the relationship between problems, their causes and their impacts. Tree analysis helps participants to elaborate their ideas to visualize and reflect on the problem in a proper structure. The participants were put into four groups following an introduction. Participants were teachers from different disciplines in MFU. Each group delivered a diagram of tree analysis then they presented to one another. Dr Nikorn also conducted interviews as a follow up of the teachers. The data from tree analysis and the interview will be later processed to find insights to improve the use of technologies in the classroom.
