E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):
There are two computer classrooms in our school with connection to the Internet. We make use of the computers to get our work done at school. And every member in our group also has a personal computer with connection to the Internet at home. So we can search and collect data at home too.
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
This is our first time to do this project, so we met a lot of difficulties.
1. We have no experience to create a webpage, so the progress was quite slow in the beginning.
2. During the discussion, we often had different opinions and it took time to negotiate with each other.
3. The time control is not good, so we were in a hurry to finish up the work before the deadline.
4. We had few ideas to design the webpage and edit the photos and texts effectively.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
We visited the Jing Sung Hospital and the Shou Shan Hall and interviewed Dr. Shi-zai Chen. During the process, we took plenty of photos and learned about the history of the Chen family during the different periods of Taiwan. When we organized these data and photos to create our own webpage, we were all very excited and felt worthy for the labor we paid in these months.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
History: Our project not only focuses on the building of the hospital but also introduce the celebrities in the Chen family. It can be traced back to the scholar Shao-nian Chen during the period of Qing Dynasty, his grandson, Dr. Jing Sung Chen and his great-grandson, Dr. Shi-zai Chen during the period of Japanese ruled. The development of Chen's medical career transfers from Japanese medical care style to western medical care style, which could be an evidence to show the affection of American culture.
Civilization: Both Dr. Jing Sung Chen and Dr. Shi-zai Chen master medical skills, and further, they have noble medical ethics. The father and the son are sympathetic to help the poor and make their impact on others, which is correspondent to the ethic concepts mentioned in civilization classes.
Health: Dr. Chen cured the patients and taught the patients how to make their lives healthy and to avoid the attack of diseases.
Computer: We directly searched information and pictures on the Internet, designed our webpage with the software, Namo WebEdito, and edit photos with the software, Photocap. We learned how to make use of the software in computer class at school. The teacher suggested us that we should choose simple and bright color as the background and take care of the size of photos and texts, which would make the webpage more beautiful.
Integrative Activities: When we discussed about our project, we learned how to collaborate with each other and realized what cooperation really means. With the team work, we can effectively conduct our project and we all know that it is impossible for solely one person to finish up the project by himself.
