Abstract—The teaching of innovative technology in primary
education in Taiwan is not enough at present. The National
Science and Technology Museum cooperated with the
university and the vocational high school to deliver the smart
industry knowledge to senior high school students. Here, this
research presented a 5-step design procedure to systematically
develop an integrated teaching module for various issues. It is a
demonstration example that the research generated an
integrated teaching module for the smart industry’s issues by
the design procedure. The knowledge database of module
content was built and applied multiple teaching ways to
enhance students’ attention. The module developed an e-book,
one augmented reality (AR) game, one board game, and one
package of teaching aids for maker education to introduce the
historical developments of industrial revolutions, the internet of
things, the smart vehicles, and the industrial robots.
Furthermore, the learning outcome and the generic learning
outcomes (GLOs) are the evaluation index and the evaluation
method, respectively. By the framework of the GLOs, the
questionnaire with a 5-level Likert scaling was designed for
evaluating the module. By the experiment of demonstration
teaching, the statistical analysis revealed that either students
from the engineering or non-engineering departments have
positive learning outcomes. A slight difference is in the category
of “Activity, Behavior, and Progression”. The research inferred
that the culture of the tested school and the students’
background could affect the learning outcomes. The result
indicated that the integrated module is useful to science
popularization learning of technological issues.
