1. Description of Our Community
We had our project with primary, secondary school and lyceum students and with their parents and teachers.
2. Summary of Our Project
In our project we wanted to show how healthy lifestyle is important in people’s lives and preventing it from early ages. First of all we searched information on healthy lifestyle, then students of Asaka Access prepared their slogans and posters promoting healthy lifestyle, and secondary school children prepared their role plays showing bad and good habits in a healthy life. The students had a workshop to kids on Healthy lifestyle. Then we collected all our work about healthy lifestyle and started to create our webpage. Our friends from Andijan Access inspired by our actions and joined us to our project on GlobalschoolNet CyberFair Program. Our friends from Andijan Access wrote their opinions about Healthy lifestyle and sent their quotes and pictures which promote healthy lifestyle. Finally we created our web site with 6 pages.

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):
We have an Internet access in our classroom for 2 years. According to our Access program we have 2 an hour IT lessons a month for the whole class. We used one classroom computer and 3 teachers' laptops and students' cell phones for the implementing the project. It'll be O'K if we have a good internet connection and more computers in our classroom. Because of slow internet connection sometimes we had to save our work and submit them later at night time.
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
As it's our second time participating in CyberFair and creating a project website we didn't have so many difficulties as in the previous one. We can say that during our project we had some technical difficulties because of slow internet connection. So we saved our work and submitted them later at midnight time. We had 4 computers in our classrooms so students worked turn by turn on creating a project website. We had often a cut of electricity. Of course, not all students could practise uploading our works on our pages.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
When Andijan Access students said they inspired by our actions and they also want to participate in the project we were so happy that our participation in CyberFair took some people' attention and they also want to take participation in a health awareness action.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
It has become a tradition to name each year with different names in Uzbekistan. For example: 2008 is a year of Youth, 2013 is a year of Prosperous Life. The president of Uzbekistan I Karimov named 2014 as a year of Healthy Child. In all fields of life all people try to make their contribution to healthy future of our generation. With participation in this project students wanted to bring their share to this health aware action. Students wrote their opinions about Healthy lifestyle and prepared their quotes and pictures which promote healthy lifestyle. It's a good motivation for our learners participating in such kind of online projects. It enables our learners to develop their English and become good citizens During creating our project website students learnt how to work on Forum. It's new for them that's why they needed more practice.The students learnt to work collobaratively, they tried to bring their shares to fulfill tasks.
