Abstract—Today education has increasing impacted on dynamic factors from fast changes of information and communication technology (ICT). Such as functions of Microsoft’s Offices and social media of Facebook, Line, Instagram (IG) are all appearances in our living environment. Although those ICTs’ tools have more and more convened in our life, however, they also have made students becoming laze and lack of cooperative learning attitude with others, this causes student’s ICT tools look fruitful but their competence is lower than before. Therefore, how to enhance student’s ICT competence has become an important issue in teaching methodology and strategy. In this paper aims to develop an effective teaching strategy on fitting this challenge. Through a way on using project-based learning in understanding the tourism knowledge, we find that student’s ICT competence needs more advanced improvement on how to integrate tools of ICT, as well as how to work together with others when go through a team work project. This paper has a critical contribution on using ICT to construct an unknown industrial knowledge. And this knowledge is abstraction and difficult to understand in a traditional class teaching, but through project-based learning with ICT thus approached.
