It is important to provide not only knowledge but also techniques in efficient and effective ways. One of the most attractive approaches to design in Ecological and/or Recycling methods is to utilize and discover reproductive tools and resources. It is a good way to create some reproductive objects. Especially, some furnitures are worth enough to be reused and reproduced in the above ways. This paper focuses how to utilized recycling resources and useful knowledge for design education. And it also presents a practical scheme to utilize Resources, Knowledge and Techniques for Design Education in order to retrieve and discover in the network environment. The paper challenges to visualize practical scheme for design process by means of comparison between usual steps in the normal design education and special steps using Internet and network community.And it summaries to be important for design education to visualize scheme for resources and knowledge discovery through network environment.
