Therefore, we have the idea of entering the community to change the appearance of the community." Team representative Yan Yujie recalled the original motivation. And an activity under the longan tree inspired him, "It was a storytelling activity at the time, I wanted to say that it didn't have to be in the classroom, so I took the elderly to the outdoors under the longan tree, the situation changed, and the interaction with the elderly was also different. Yan Yujie saw the elders' active feedback and thought, "Why not turn the power of storytelling over and let the elders tell the story." Although they see the possibility, it is not easy to achieve. Their first step must be Guide the emotions of the elders, then let the elders learn to recognize the images of different street scenes, choose the places they are interested in, and finally start to take the elders to visit the community in a gamified way, ride the golf cart together, and share them at each point. The story, in the gradual process, developed this set of courses suitable for rural types.
