Our topic is protect and know more about animals. Our aim is to spread the message as far as we can and for that we have worked very hard in order that every one care about animals, protect them, stop the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, because they are equal as us. I hope this website will be seen by a lot of people, and have agreement form them. I wish the people that visit our site will spread around our message. I hope we can help animals, not to destroy them, do not let more and more animals disappear from this world, because already a lot of them extinct.

Project Elements

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

We did a lot of researched to complete our Doors to Diplomacy project. For the most part we used our most precious technological tool: two Macbooks, MAX OS X, which we connected to the Internet at the HQ-Campus or at home. That computers help us to find all the informations we needed, and at the same time, we learn so much thorough the informations we get. BUT, just some basic informations are from our the basic knowledge, we also asked some extra-helps from friends, teachers, and also our parents, and we wrote down the answers we get through them on the web. Thank you! We are from Shanghai Community International School (SCIS) which is a one-to-one laptop school, so all students have computers, that is where out tool come from. And the computers are include in our school tuition fee. So, if we are without the laptop, we will be ‘out’, and it would be so difficult for researching. Linda created and had done the website using the helpful I-Web. We also used programs such as Safari, FireFox and Google Chrome, PhotoShop (for the world map).
