ABSTRACT
The concept of creativity in education is linked with a range of social factors. By examining the relationship among social, educational factors and creativity among students in Thailand, this study proposes that educators and policy makers must understand various global factors that affect contemporary education. They include changes in contemporary politics, culture and communication in the global education contexts. The study confirms that modern cultural factors and concept of gender are marked as key predictors of the development of creativity among young Thai students. It is reported in this study that various facets of globalization also promote creativity and imagination among young Thais. Young Thai students in this study are, in fact, willing to participate in many creative educational and social activities.
