After mastering the design ideas, the teachers divided several groups to design educational products. After one-day studying and discussing, all the groups explored more than one wonderful works related to children's education, such as the IDN Experience Center for exploring children's interest, experience classes for promoting the development of children's creativity and space design for future teaching. Through this workshop, teachers not only enhanced their interdisciplinary teaching capabilities, but also made various assumptions about the concept of future education.
