4. Problems We Had To Overcome
First, tight schedule. It was difficult to make time to do the web from the tight schedule of our high school students every day. in order to overcome the difficulties, we often spent time of extra-curricular activities on collecting materials and making web pages in computer rooms. We have taken the only day of rest in a week to finish two of interviews. However it is worth when the gorgeous Tibetan costumes were shown out. Second, lack of the necessary knowledge of web producing. We have learnt less technology skills on web producing, due to little contact before high school. We often learnt from each other and shared it in the most intuitive way to make web pages within the specified time. Third, lack of necessary knowledge of data compilation. Some data were massed because of our lack of experiences, as some required material couldn't be picked when doing the web pages efficiently.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Although we are living in the Tibetan Autonomous County, where there are a lot of local Tibetan, not all of us truly understand Huarui Tibetan clothing. This project will help a number of local Tibetan, as well as the school's teachers and students, to acknowledge Tibetan costumes.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
During carrying out this project with many journalistic activities, there were a lot of school teachers to contact interview candidates, who were kindly cooperating with us at home. Without the help, nothing would be worked out. Thank you!
