4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Computer Lab is common for all the classes, right from Montessori to Std. XII. Regular practicals are held on same machines. Hence computers were not available all the time for the project.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

We got opportunity to take part in the international level competition. We read lot of material on the given topic, which enriched our knowledge. We got practical knowledge of website making by participating in this competition.

6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

We did library research online. We got knowledge of new methods of website making e.g. online page creation by sitebuilder software. We were working as a team for this project. Internet was found to be faster option for library research. 20 years ago, internet was not in existance. At that time our teacher Anand used to do traditional library reasearch. Now online reaserch is easily possible, which is much faster than traditional library research.

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your Doors to Diplomacy project?

Maximum data collection was done online. Search engines like Google were used to locate websites. Online data collection proved to be faster than traditional library research.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Doors to Diplomacy project both on-line and in person.

We have created a website to act as online ambassadors.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

The website will create awareness in our community about the international affairs. It will serve as a reference material. Better use of computer lab was made possible because of this project. Basically computer lab is meant for technical practicals. But it was used for research in social science due to this project.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

We got guidance and moral support from our parents and teachers.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

Online research proved to be easier and faster than traditional library research.
