Research on Environmental Education Management Combined with Factory Touring Based on Field Theorysonispa Tourism Factory in Taiwan

Abstract

The promotion of factory touring in our country has exactly reached the tenth year, during which the traders engaged in this industry and the counseling departments have started to reflect upon future development. The Environmental Education Act stipulates that the teachers and students in schools below senior high education are supposed to participate in environmental education for more than four hours per year, and the county and city governments one after another encourage schools to hold excursions in collaboration with tourism factories in recognition to local culture and industrial knowledge. A French scholar, Bourdieu, thinks that social world is a cluster of many fields, and the agents make use of dissimilar types of capitals to form habitus for the achievement of targets. Our research applies the prospect of Field Theory and Qualitative Method to the field of school and tourism factory, to investigate into the process of how the elementary school teachers realize environmental education with the tourism factory, and to understand the intention of the agents and how each type of capital is acquired and transformed. The discovery of this research includes: 1. Sonispa Tourism Factory integrates the salt culture into local features and builds a field of environmental education which combines entertainment with education. It not only transforms the cultural capitals into an attraction to the tourists, but also brings economic capitals, social capitals, and symbolic capitals for itself. 2. The process of promoting environmental education in the school field becomes the cultural capital for the elementary school teachers,
