This school lies in Jhu Pu Li, YanShui town of Tainan county. And the Taiwan Poetic Pathway is just near by Jhu Pu Li. We often go to this beautiful place by bicycle to take a walk, and play together!

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

1.We can not control the time sometimes: It is really a pity that some of us can not join the activity because they have courses in holiday. The activities in school are numerous, we do not have enough time to discuss so we just use noontime, breaking time, and the computer class to finish the difficult task. 2. It is not easy to collect the documents and information: Because the Poetic Pathway of Taiwan is a new sightseeing of our township, the information of the Poetic Pathway is rare that we are not easy to collect documents of it. But we still surf on the internet and go to library to find the information of the Poetic Pathway of Taiwan. Because of the documents is rear, it reveals the importance of our monograph. And we believe our monograph will have great help for the people who want to study the relative issue. 3.We are not good at making pottery: This is our first time to make pottery, and because we don,t have the basis of making pottery, some of the work are broken. After burning from high temperature, some of the work are broken, too. The reasons may be we hit the work incautious or the temperature is unstable. Besides we also find that we should glaze the pottery heavily, the pottery would be beautiful and bright. If we glaze it lightly, it can not appear the bright color. The experience has given us a good teaching and we can take the experience as a mirror.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

The Poetic Pathway of Taiwan is a good neighborhood of Jhu Pu community. Through this time studying, we not only can know the good place, but also to understand the poem of Taiwan. This is really a good research!

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

The roles of the monographic study is ourselves. We are not audience and listener. By join the opportunity of the CyberFair , we can combine with the culture ,art, community resources and the participation of parents. Through the interview of people of Taiwan Poetic Pathway, We go into studying activity by multi-ways, integrating the sources of network and technology equipments that teacher offer. We show the interesting theme of web page . In the process, we learn the ability of analysis, induction,organization,and association. We also learn the skill of expressing and communicating. Further more, we learn how to respect others to promote team spirit. Besides above,we should have positive attitude to finish our monograph in the studying process . The most important, we can share our feeling, thinking and happiness.

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

When we make this theme, beside using network and books to collect information, we also go to visit relative people live in Yanshui who are good at the poem of Taiwan. In information technology, we use of digital camera,digital camcorder ,recording pen,computer,cell phone,printer,photocopier,CD burner,information of network,verbal visitiation and lots of software just like dreamweaver?nEO iMAGING?photoimapact?picasa?browser of firefox?flash?media player?yahoo messenger?msn?FileZilla?word etc, to assist the local monograph. And when we visit, we use the recording pen to record the talking of invitee and use cell phone and telephone to arrange the plan.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.

Before visiting, we usually collect information, make visitatorial questions, disscussing from each other and practice in advance. For reducing mistakes on live situation,our teachers tell us about our manners and relative items about the topic we study. After our visitation, we manger visiting content to document. Because we have enough preparation on first time, when we go on second and third visitation, we don't feel nervous more.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

The executive chairman of Lin Ming Kun hopes that Taiwan can become poetic Taiwan. As the younger, we sometimes don,t understand the history of Taiwan. When we listen the music of Taiwan songs and or read the poem of Taiwan, we don,t know the conception of them. So by inviting the Poetic Pathway of Taiwan, we can understand the history of Taiwan. And through writing the poem and making the pottery, we can create the history by ourselves. Through the monograph, besides we study hard to find information, the people of locality value the local land gradually. Before we study the topic of this time, the people live in Tainan don,t know the Poetic Pathway of Taiwan. Now we can let everyone near by the land of Taiwan. Like a poem of pottery? Don,t dislike Taiwan?.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

We should appreciate Lin Ming Kun ,the executive chairman .He combines school and community, let our visitation very brilliant. And we also appreciate Lin Wen Yue, he shares the information of Poetic Pathway of Lotus Flower, the process of making pottery, the idea of art and the Tea Tao of lotus. All that let us know the lotus and pottery further. Finally we must say “thank you” sincerely.
