The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of marine disasters on knowledge, skills, and literacy of upper elementary school students in Keelung City under the natural occurrence factors and the implementation of different teaching methods (virtual reality integration learning and traditional audio-visual learning). This study adopted the "unequal group pre-test-post-test design" approach in the quasi-experimental research method to conduct experimental teaching. Two classes were used as the experimental group, and the other two classes were used as the control group to implement the "lecture-based curriculum learning". The teaching content was based on understanding offshore and offshore currents as a response to natural hazards in the ocean, and the theme of marine disaster prevention literacy education. The teaching strategy adopts 5E inquiry-based and experimental teaching. The reliability and validity of the assessment tools and the expert content were analyzed through data collection and statistical analysis. The expected results of this study are as follows:
1. the "Virtual Reality Course Learning Group" of marine disaster prevention knowledge, skills and literacy will be significantly better than the "Lecture Course Learning Group".
2. The results of the pre and post-implementation questionnaires showed a significant improvement in the marine disaster preparedness of all students.
3. Based on the conclusions of the study, we propose and summarize the relevant recommendations and give specific suggestions for the future integration of virtual reality into the marine disaster prevention curriculum of elementary schools and for the establishment of marine disaster prevention education and teaching for students.
