Spring C. Hsu | Ruo-Chi Chiou
Abstract: Disaster prevention education in elementary schools in Taiwan currently lacks complete teaching packages and only uses general storytelling teaching approaches. Therefore, in order to inspire students, this study aims to use tabletop games focusing on fire safety to facilitate and improve disaster prevention education. For the samples, some students with special needs in an elementary school in Hsinchu County are included in the teaching study. In addition, the students are randomly divided into experimental and control groups to differentiate the learning effects. The experimental group will be taught with tabletop games, while the control group will receive general teaching approaches. In addition, a statistical test is applied to analyze the differences in students' learning effects. The results of this study show that the application of tabletop games in fire safety education can significantly improve students' learning effects, as well as enhance their learning motivation and concentration. Moreover, it can increase the opportunities for peer communication in the classroom and create a happier learning environment.
