about the innovation

What did Co-publishing project create to Taiwan children from remote schools?

In Taiwan, remote school children & the second generation of new residents were treated as economically disadvantaged groups, they were used to accept donation from the masses by stereotype of compassion and mercy.

 Proposer of this project spent 10 years in remote school education, interacted with children to create 15 “Photography formula” for the first book and 6“Picture story formula” for the second book. These two books have 6,000 copies and e-books.

Co-publishing project created three-layer innovation.

 The first one is to arouse children`s learning motivation. Combined with smart phones, social media and “Photography formula”, we share to the children through the observation of their daily life environment and always being patience for waiting good timing to take the pictures.

 The second is to transfer new residents families culture to Chinese World and fuse two generation of new residents, children could understand their mom`s hard work and respect different countries culture. Because the book of “Picture story formula”was created by the second generation of new residents which recorded the new residents’ mothers who came from different countries (China, Vietnam, Cambodia……). Children could understand their mom's hard work and feel grateful to their family. Though these two books, we want to deliver to people not only about the Photography skill, but also discover and share the different cultures of families in Taiwan to Chinese World.

The third-layer innovation is to build up the self-recognition and multiple intelligence for the remote school children& the second generation of new residents. To evidence that they can create their own future and overcome challenges by real market. NT$10,000 school funding has been created from this project for the poor children of remote school.

The children donated 100 copies of these 2 published books to Kaohsiung Library, thus their successful stories can be shared to the 2,770,000 KAO citizen, and from that moment the children started their new chapter to become donors with contribution to society.

The core aim of the Co-publishing project is to deploy a framework which can be duplicated by any kinds of art and life skills. Children may face different kinds of challenges by real market, but they can take responsibility by themselves.

That`s what education should do!


HundrED Academy Review

Students from remote schools tend to have insufficient learning resources. The innovators used what were available to most students such as mobile phones and social media to promote learning. More importantly, students not only learned the subject areas but also gained confidence.
