Project Overview

1. Description of Our Team

Respecting Indigenous Peoples at different places, we chose this title for our project because we notice that I.P (Indigenous Peoples) are no longer being respected in a way that their culture is being disgraced by others, their homes are being destroyed. To solve this problem here in the Philippines, the government made a law (Republic Act no. 8371) concerning to the rights of Indigenous Peoples. With our project we are hoping that we could help the Viewers Learn new things.Our Project's main purpose is to help people respect and honor the cultures of Indigenous Peoples all over the world. we included the Indigenous peoples in different counties like Australia,Brazil etc. also to help the viewers learn new things.

2. Summary of Our Project

Our project purpose is to help people RESPECT Indigenous Peoples all over the world. This is our projects purpose because we realise that some peoples are no longer respecting these Indigenous Peoples. We are hoping that through our project we can be a bit help to those people who wants to protect the rights of these Indigenous Peoples. They are also Humans like us, If we deserve to be respected,They also Deserve to Be Respected.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Our first problem we have to overcome is 'STRESS', but we have to stay calm and always think positive to overcome Stress. Second problem is that we don't know what to do, But Sir Vincent Tabor our T.H.E teacher explained everything to us. He's a big Help to us. And Lastly, at first we didn't had a 'TEAMWORK' that's the reason why we stumbled at first but we rise up and started again. We finished our project with 'TEAMWORK'

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Here's a simple qoute that best summarize our participation in this project, 'A Group Won't Succeed if there's no TEAMWORK' No matter how many you are in your group if there's no teamwork and cooperation you won't possibly succeed.

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

Students learned new skills like TEAMWORK,RESPECT, this project fits our required school because the school's purpose is to help the students Sharpen our skill and use our knowledge we learned inside the school. We better understand diplomacy and international issues because of this project we will know what is happening all over the world. Using the internet for teaching and learning is not effective enough. Why? Because not all students are interested in education, all they want from internet is online games, therefore traditional methods is still effective enough for us, because there is someone who there who can guide the students while they are learning. But Different students have different studying style and different learning methods.

Project Elements

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

We used the computers at our school's Computer lab, and our personal Computers at home, we also used 3 cellphones to communicate with each other, and TV station like GMA.

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

Through information sharing via the website we created we acted as ambassadors for the indigenous people and how the majority should afford the proper respect to the minority.

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

By informing people an acting as ambassadors for the indigenous people we hope to create an impact to the greater community.

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

They were a big help to us, Without them I think we will never finish our project. Most of those peoples who help us were our Schoolmates, Friends, Family. We gave our projects URL to them and ask for some Comments and Suggestions to improve our project.
