2. Summary of Our Project
We understand the tray management in our school through this research, and we understand the personality of teacher Huang. Team members went to the lab and the instrument room many times to interview teacher Huang, experienced the raw material collection and production process of the tray. The deeds of Huang were preach in students, it not only led more students to concern about the activities of the tray but also let them love and respect for teachers in the school. Through the publicity of the event, some parents and primary school graduates learn more about our school from understanding Huang, more sixth grade graduates next year will be attracted in my school to read.
3. Our Computer and Internet Access
A. Percentage of students using the Internet at home:none
B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:none
C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dial-up modem
D. Number of years our classroom has been connected to the Internet:1
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Our interviewee is a teacher in the school in this activity, so it is convenient for us to have a smooth interview. but in the event, the greatest difficulty we have encountered is that the Internet is too slow to upload the information, (because of network transformation, most of the computers are wireless), in the process of collecting, collating and creating web pages, the school network is often dropped, the content cannot be uploaded successfully several times, and the information is not saved, so we have to start all over again, wasting a lot of time, in order to solve this problem, we mainly took two ways: first compiled the interview material in WORD, and then uploaded to the Internet; second staggered the more concentrated period. Therefore, we generally upload data in the study up, the problem has been resolved. Sometimes because we have to collate information, so we are delayed on the study, which would be complained by some class teachers, but we will prove to the teachers with the excellent results that we did not drop the course. We should not only create web pages seriously but also improve our learning.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
To participate in the activities we have experienced too much, in order to let more people respect teacher Huang and love our school, we have asked Huang teacher for many times, and let her taught us how to make a tray? How to thought 'Tray-type' management creativity? What benefits has been brought of this management? And personally experienced the shows of physics, chemistry teacher in the classroom, experimental teacher walked into the classroom, in order to be acquainted with the tray instrument management better, teaching office was at the full support of our activities, they organized experimental operation in the multipurpose restaurant. The people who give us help, hope and support maybe did not think they have done a very significant thing, because of their participation, so that more the more students feel the charm of Huang'
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
In the classroom teaching, we are mainly learning some basic knowledge. Practical activities are mainly carried out in this thematic research, we combine the knowledge we have learned on the class with experimental lesson, we not only experience the tray which has brought convenience for us but also try to collect the tray, make up the experimental apparatus. Our school organized the experimental skills game, all in all, it cannot be completed by a few people, there are many beloved teachers and cute students around us, there are a lot of people who support us. In this activities, we not only master computer knowledge but also exercise social practice. Although we encountered some difficulties along the way, we learn the knowledge we never learned in the classroom, we are more favorite with physical and chemical and admire our teachers more, in short, we benefit a lot from this activity.
