6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
During this project we had a lot of fun but also we learned to be disciplined, creative and thinkable. We improve our historical and technical skills. In Bulgaria internet for teaching becomes one of the most useful methods, so it's more effective than traditional methods. We use computers and internet when we want our lessons to be more attractive for students. They enjoy this kind of learning and teaching very much. Our project was some kind of a game and at the same time a very good lesson.
