2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
Long time ago, we were deeply touched by the rich love for this land from the music by Tyzen Hsiao. As Tyzen Hsiao once said, “the purpose of music is to share with people and make audiences respond.” During the interview with his friends and family members, we realized that it takes time and effort to compose a piece of music. That is not an easy task. This also encouraged us that it is worth doing this project to let more people know Tyzen Hsiao as a person and his beautiful works. We definitely take pride in speaking on Tyzen Hsiao's behalf.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
The impact we can bring to the community is to transmit Tyzen Hsiao's works more visible to the people in the world. As we mentioned before, though Tyzen Hsiao has been very famous in Taiwan, there are still many people not knowing his works and matters. After our interview with Tyzen Hsiao's friends and family members, we felt very burdensome because we are so lucky to know about him and compared with him we are like small pebble as to big rock of Tyzen Hsiao. Through webpage, more people are accessible to his story and masterpieces.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
We as a team invlove all Tyzen Hsiao's students, friends, family members, and churches to be in memory of him because he is such a wonderful man for us to respect him. It was such a heavy-load work that we knew that it must be very challenging. All the data we gathered from them really helped us form this webpage. Deep down in our heart, we were and are quite grateful.
5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Thanks to this research project, every member of the team really appreciates the meaning of teamwork and division of labor. The leader of the team thinks that a team is like a house building. Any little falloff will lead to the collapse of the house. Only through working together will the team achieve success. Though members had conflicts with each other in the process, we therefore cherish every moment and excel ourselves. After the interview with his friends and family members, we all felt that there are many things to accomplish at different stages of our lives. Since we talked to them, we have gradually developed interests in this field. That is something we never felt before in our lives. We really thanked people telling his story and teachers for their guidance in this project with their sacrifices and dedications.
