This study first let students to search information and find the accurate answer then completed the learning guides in each fields of knowledge of Lanyü Digital Museum (LDM). And then, students should choose one theme to create their own briefing and use the LDM as their information resource.

The results are as follows: (1) there were significant differences in seeking information of geology, entomology, botany and students’ presentation between sixth-grade females and males in learning with the LDM; (2) the gender can explain and predict 5%, 7%, 7.2%, 2.4%, 3% and 5.9% of the total variance in seeking geology, entomology, botany, amphibious herpetology and students’ briefings and presentation, respectively; (3) the logical-mathematical intelligence of students can explain and predict 9.7%, 9.2%, 11.5%, 18.8%, 8.8% and 6.9% of the total variance in seeking geology, entomology, botany, amphibious herpetology and students’ briefings and presentation, respectively.
