Abstract


Most of the current empirical studies of Maker Education emphasize the enhancement of learners’ abilities after undertaking the curriculum, but few studies have been conducted on the overall core concepts of makers. Therefore, this study aims to define the key competences of makers to construct the competence indicators of Maker Education in elementary school. On this basis, a curriculum can be developed, and an evaluation system for learning effectiveness can be built to equip students with the abilities to adapt to life and tackle challenges. In this study, the Fuzzy Delphi Method (FDM) was applied to collect and analyze data in the form of a questionnaire survey. The subjects were 12 experts from enterprises, governmental institutions, schools and research institutes. The achievements include three aspects of competence indicators of makers in elementary school (“Making,” “Collaboration” and “Knowledge sharing”), seven factors (“Theoretical knowledge,” “Practical application,” “Maker’s mindset,” “Personal participation,” “Team interaction,” “Way of sharing” and “Motivation of sharing”), and 20 indicators. The competence indicators of Maker in elementary school offer an important basis for developing curriculum which involves key competences of Maker.
