4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We started the project late and people were not sure if they had been given the privilege to take part in Cyberfair. Also, we had limited knowledge in website design, especailly HTML coding and photo editing. It was also hard to get reviews because we had to seek the permission of the restaurants before we could write our reviews. To overcome this, our teachers helped to guide us along the project and they also equipped us with the necessary skills to do a good project that would do their efforts justice. The Internet was a treasure trove of information and we picked up HTML tips from various websites there.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
It was very fun and enriching.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
The Cyberfair project addressed Singaporean food. Coming from a Chinese school, learning about other cultures has let us know more about our roots. It also taught us that unity is strength, that many hands make light work. Singapore is a multiracial country, and it is important to have an awareness of all the different races that make up our community. Using the Internet to source for information has been much easier than trawling through books in the library. The Internet has also taught us useful skills like HTML coding, to make our website look more appealing.
