1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?
The activity for this Cyberfair project was an application of the things we learned in our research, computer education, and in journalism. The knowledge learned through the Internet, photo editing, web designing are the new skills we acquired in the duration of the activities for this Cyberfair project.
The different activities we have performed helped strengthen our self-esteem. We also gained valuable lessons in interpersonal relationships both inside and outside the classroom, lessons that were very helpful to us during the times when we were searching for the information to be placed in the web page.
These lessons helped us muster the confidence and the courage to ask and interview officials in the tourism office, the Historical Council, and other resource persons about the topic. The Internet has helped us to be efficient in the use of the Web. It taught us a lot of things and gave us access to the information superhighway.
The project has provided the school community and the students with the motivation and sense of awareness. We are filled with a yearning to know and discover the historical wealth of our beloved province Antique.
We were intent in letting the people know about the beauty of Antique. We felt like it was our responsibility to teach what we have learned. 'We learned to love our past, in all of its beauty and splendor.'
2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
Acting as ambassadors who represent our school in accomplishing this project lead to interacting to some respected persona in our community where we didn’t only present our involvement in this CyberFair project and the opportunities it might give our school but also our desire to share inspiration from the late governor Evelio Javier. Before we did the project, there is a need for us to ask permission first from the family or relatives of our subject where we achieved for having the blessing from his eldest son, Gideon Javier.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
Before we did this project, we had a hard time deciding on what field or category we will use to create a webpage. Later, we agreed to work on the Local Leaders and the first person who popped into our minds is our late governor and the Hero of our province, Evelio B. Javier. Because of this, we have gathered several information about him that we didn’t know before. Aside from this, this had been a great effect especially to all Antiquenos to be more inspired to the story of the man who had nothing but faith and dreams for all of us and the one who fought for the democracy of our country.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
Our project wouldn’t have been completed without the aid of the following people on our community: Mrs. Jocelyn E. Remonte, who encouraged us to join this prestigious contest and provided us necessary materials and useful information needed in our project; Mr. Gideon Javier for giving us the permission to publish a website about his late father; Mr. Gaudencio C. Riego, Principal IV and Mr. Teodoro Marzoña, Head Teacher VI Technology and Livelihood Education. Our ever-supportive parents and member of our family, who inspired us with full financial, moral and spiritual support that encouraged us to move forward even in the midst of crisis; the Antique National School Community, especially the IV-Diamond students , whom we asked for ideas and suggestions for the improvement of our project; and GOD Almighty, the Creator of all things Whom all knowledge, unconditional love and infinite wisdom belong.
5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Legends are lessons. They ring with truth which led us to our democracy. The team explored every library, every website and asked everyone to gather information, data, opinion and statements which can be used in our project. We were amazed of what he has done for the achievement of our democracy and it gives us a chance to believe that even a normal person could become a hero. From there, his memory will continue to inspire and unite the Antiquenos and live with peace and harmony in their hearts.
