1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your Doors to Diplomacy project?
We used macbook for made web site and used camera for taking photos. The tools' owner took them and kept safely because bought them by our own money and like macbook which was most valuable tool, we also usually use in normal school classes. We paid money and got macbook from school. The iweb was the most helpful technologies. If we didn't have that application, maybe we got hard time to make web site.
2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Doors to Diplomacy project both on-line and in person.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
The whole point of our project, is that we wish that people could see this and start to realize and help out the abused or is going to get abused animals. We hope they do learn new things from our site. And that they would start to show an interest in abusive animals and starts thinking ways to help out. My parents really encourages this topic of ours and says that it's really cool of the school to give us such project to work on. The pictures and the movie we've got on our site may be a bit disturbing for some people, apology for that. Some teachers had looked through out site, and the feedback we received includes keep up the good work, nice job ladies..etc.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
One of the group member's friend is a animal lover. Therefore, she had been telling us thing's she saw when she went visiting the animal shelters. She said, it was truly heartbreaking. Seeing some of the animals wrapped up in bondages, some having to walk on two legs, and some.. just laying there, not moving. It gave us ideas, to write it into articles and to research more on how animal shelter's are helping out the animals ( the ones we researched on is mainly in Shanghai, China) Also, we went interviewing this lady on the weekends. She was really helpful, telling us her thoughts and opinions on animal abusing. Thank you, Mrs Nihenhao.
5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Discoveries we've made includes the fact that, there is only one member in the team whom is taking the lead and ordering things together. If she doesn't, we're going to be really lost ( HUh? Should I be doing the web designing or researching? ) Lesson's we've learnt; That working and discussing stuff together as a group is way better off than just ' Okay, you do this, you do that. And we put all our research's together after we're all done.' It's more efficient talking things together. And more fun. Surprises me, that our site turns looking unexpectedly quite nice. We used Iweb, so compared to the other peoples site who had used weebly.com, wix.com ..etc there sites looks really professional. But we're good, we're really satisfied for all our hard work we've put into this project.
