Abstract: Experimentation and innovation in education have been promoted in Taiwan for just a short period of time. However, the expectation from the general public has been growing since "Three Acts for Experimental Education" was passed and the new curriculum standard of the 12-year basic education was prepared. This paper analyzed the meaning and connation of educational experimentation and innovation, and summarized eight features: problem awareness, theoretical ideas, non-mainstream, uncertainty, courage to take a reasonable risk, planned action, multi-evidence-based evaluation, and accordance with professional ethics. The question about why education can be experimented is justified by John Dewey's experimentalism, which maintains that no truth or value is eternal and that both educational ideas and scientific methods are subject to re-inspection. In Dewey's belief, educational experimentation can solve problems, investigate ideas, and pursue progress. Such kind of experimental process would lead to reconstruction of learning experiences and co-construction of democratic society. This paper also described the expectation and flexible framework within the new curriculum for the 12-year basic education. Finally, ten innovative directions emerging from Taiwan's education and five types of educational innovation existing in other countries were proposed for consideration by those who will try out experimentation and innovation for the 12-year basic education. In conclusion, every kind of educational experimentation or innovation is not only responding to the needs of local society and environment but also trying to solve the new problems from the new age.
