The Development Model of Maker Education in the School Set Curriculum for the 12-Year Basic Education: Perspective of School-based Curriculum Development
In response to the wave of Maker Movement worldwide, the Ministry of Education has actively promoted maker education, setting up local maker bases and encourage teachers to integrate it into curriculum and instruction. 12-year basic education will be implemented from the 2019th academic year. “School set curriculum” is developed by a school according to its needs and characteristics. Maker education is a perfect fit for this kind of curriculum. This article first explores the history and results of maker education in Taiwan, and then illustrates the opportunities of maker education development in 12-year school set curriculum. Next, the model of maker education development is proposed from the perspective of school-based curriculum development. This model includes the six steps: organizing the curriculum development team, analyzing the school’s context and curriculum requirements, developing the curriculum vision and objectives, designing the curriculum plan, underatanding and implementing the curriculum, as well as continuous evaluation and rolling modification. Hopefully, this article can provide the references of “bottom-up” maker education implementation for the schools.
