Project Elements

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

We used the web site called 'Easybib' to make work cited, and we used our school blog to post and publish our whole work on it. Not only this, by asking teachers about the good news web site, we were able to get lots of information.

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

When the group was first built, we gathered around, and each people chose of what to do, one of our members chose to manage the computer, one of our members decided to correct grammars and other mistakes that people wrote in draft. Also, we had a leader, that led us, which helped us to go into right track.

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

We are writing about economies that whoever visits our website will be watching our contrasts between Korea economies and other few countries. With the background information of other countries that helped affect on economies, such as World War II, China's the Great Cultural Revolution.

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

Because there is lots of foreigners in our school, our teacher gave us the oppurtunity to share our projects with the other group, and asked to write the feedback, which helped us them to correct our projects grammar and other things, and this helped us to get better work.
