4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Two main problems we had to overcome during the period of researching. One problem is that because we are nine-grade students, we should attend the addition classes on Saturdays. The pressure of schooling was very heavy. Therefore, it was difficult for us to visit Soxlink tourism factory in leisure time. The other is to how to design our website. Fortunately, Mr. Yang gave us a big hand, and we finished this job finally.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Knowledge is power. During the period of designing the website, we realized the power of network. By the established website, the various products of soxlink tourism factory could be known by people all over the world. Therefore, how to utilize the skills of computer technology is very important!
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
During the researching process, we had combined skills we learned from the curriculum domains of languages, society, as well as information technology to do this project. When interviewing, we took photos and recorded some useful information with digital cameras. After the visit, teacher Tsou directed us how to arrange the information held in our hands and compile it into a complete and detailed report. Then, teacher Yang taught us how to create web pages with some computer softwares, such as Namo Webeditor and Photo Impact. After several months of hard working, we have done the great job successfully.
