Abstract

Environmental actions without protection desire and skills would be vain. The task of education is to create such thirst and motive under the encouragement of the community. For this reason, it is expected to open students’ future green new horizons of environmental awareness with teaching methods and research tools which could enhance students’ environmental literacy, when largely promoting the low-carbon and energy-saving sustainable life. In this case, it is necessary to deeply understand students’ environmental awareness and teach them with strict curriculum mapping and design to reinforce students’ environmental competence so as to cope with currently extreme climate change.
Aiming at students of Tungfang Design University, Taiwan, total 221 students, as the experimental objects, are preceded computer-aided instruction integrated environmental education. The experimental teaching is preceded 3 hours per week for 15 weeks (total 45 hours). The research results show positive relations between 1.environmental education and learning outcome, 2.learning outcome and environmental literacy, and 3.environmental education and environmental literacy. Suggestions are proposed according to the results, expecting to assist domestic students in enhancing self-development through the awareness of the responsibility for environmental issues. Especially, internationally concerned environmental issues would guide the goal of environmental education to social prospective.
