About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Facing the rapid changes in the world, the reform of changing memorization and examination as the main educational method will bring more happiness and hope to the next generation.
The impact of the epidemic on children's education around the world is huge. Taiwan, which is in Asia, is also undergoing drastic changes. It is an urgent crisis to guide children to learn design-thinking.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

We have established a foundation for the development of innovative education, bringing together achievers in professional industries related to life application design, and jointly provide teaching materials and tools related to design education for the teaching system of public primary and secondary schools, and cooperate with local government education units to plan Next, we hold teacher training workshops and cooperate with school teachers in teaching. In the past few years, we have demonstrated and operated experimental courses in several public schools in Taiwan, and held exhibitions of course results.
We cooperate with children's architectural education institutions in the United States and Singapore to develop teaching methods suitable for local use in Taiwan. First, we help public school teachers use them in teaching courses, especially visual art courses, and gradually use "STEAM" Interdisciplinary discipline development is the goal.

How has it been spreading?

In 2019 (before the outbreak of the global epidemic), after winning the recognition of the World Innovation Education Award, we received more attention and resources, and our work gradually expanded to more educational units and schools. Through several speeches , more workshops, and larger innovative education cooperation programs, more and more partners and school teachers are joining us. In 2021 and 2022, 6 public primary and secondary schools have joined the cooperation program and completed several lectures and work Workshops, teacher training courses, more than 400 collaborative demonstration courses, more than hundreds of teachers and students participated, and continue to spread.We plan for the future,continue to cooperate with the advancement of Taiwan's education policy.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

We are working on developing the infrastructure of the organization. We hope that in the future, we will be able to provide our innovative course materials to all institutions or teachers in need through the Internet platform for free. This is still a hard work for us. Work in progress, currently available through our Facebook fan page, we can see the video we filmed for the lab class.
