Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Claret College of Isabela is a school located at Isabela City, Basilan. It’s a school where both boys and girls are accommodated. The school made a musical play, “The Elements” to display to the audience the real Isabela. It aims to give importance to the many beautiful things that isabela has in store for the people.

2. Summary of Our Project

The group chose “The Elements” to be the subject for the project because it deeply involves the theme for this year: “Empower and Unite” in which unity is a big factor. Our project shows how people from different religions as well as different cultures unite to showcase their talents not as individuals but what beauty it results from having different backgrounds.

3. Our Computer and Internet Access

A. Percentage of students using the Internet at home:more than 50%

B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:more than 6

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dedicated connection

D. Number of years our classroom has been connected to the Internet:4-6

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):

During the day time our Internet connection slows down due to the numerous people in the campus trying to access the internet.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

At first there were few problems that we encountered. But later on as the deadline is fast approaching, the problems multiplied a hundred fold. We originally had a different entry, however when 'The Elements' was presented to us in our school only last February 15, 16 and 17; we decided that this would be the best entry, and due to lack of time we have to double our efforts which gave us a lot of stress. We took a lot of beautiful video and pictures of the musical play that we would like to share to all the people out there, however we had difficulty uploading it on the web.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

A destination rich in history and love aims to recreate their heritage and show their beauty through their play, ““The Elements”.”

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

More than anything else, we want to treat this project as a gift to our sister school, Claret College of Isabela Basilan. We would like to honor the friendship that has been made by two entities separated by land, sea, ethnicity, culture and religion, a living proof that such kind of relationship is possible.

This activity gave way to a lot of ideas, all of which promotes interaction, unity, friendship, respect to beliefs of one another, freedom (from injustice, misunderstanding, bad stereotypes) and also on the awareness of the status of nature.

Project Elements

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

We have used the following materials in completion for the project, research and other purposes: · Internet · Computer (MS Word, Window Movie Maker, MS Front Page) Digital cameras and video cameras helped us a lot in documenting the events as it happens.

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

We acted as ambassadors for the Claret College of Isabela City to show their situation and unique talents and abilities. We also served as the path to lead the viewers of the project to our community. We also served as the speakers that being united, we can make a better nation.

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

We have promoted the situation of Claret College of Isabela and the city itself. We want to tell the world that there are children in Basilan who wants peace and unity among Christians and Muslims and that they can live in harmony. Basilan is such a beautiful place.

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

The students, teachers and administrators from Isabela City and Quezon City helped us to make this project complete. They are our models and inspiration that’s why we came up with this project.
