A Study on Learning Motives and Learning Effects of Vocational High School Students to Energy Technology Education Integrated into Project Course

Fang-Pin Lai, Chin-Wen Liao, Chia-Ling Shih, and Chin-Chang Wu

Abstract—This study aims at discussing the correlation between the learning motivation and effect of public partial high school students majoring in electrical engineering and electronics as integrating project implementation course into energy science education. The result of this study is as following: public partial high school students majoring in electrical engineering and electronics have higher learning motivation when it comes to the aspect of “interest in knowledge-seeking” as integrating project implementation course into energy science education; they have higher learning effect when it comes to the aspect of “recognition” as integrating project implementation course into energy science education. Among them, those who selected “entering to a higher school,” “projects being relevant” and “having the will to take part in contests” among the context variables have higher learning motivation and effect. As a result, there is an obvious positive correlation between their learning motivation and effect.
