4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The main problem we have encountered was, the inability to conduct interviews that could have additional information regarding our topic. The reason why we did not accomplish this is, because we do not have our own video camera to use for the interview. And since that, none of our cellphones are good enough to use for taking videos, and no one is available to lend us one, we opted not to include any interview ion our website. And, with no interviews done, we decided to get most of our documentations from the Internet, specially from the site, Google. Next problem we encountered was time and schedule. It is not that, the time is not enough for us to do the project, but rather, as students who also have assignments and other projects to do, som of our schedules are pretty hectic and we had to adjust the time when we need to do our project. Other than that, we did not encounter much problem concerning our project.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
'The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it; not having it, to confess your ignorance.' This quotation from Confucius best summarizes our project because it inspires us to use our knowledge well in the most helpful way we can and make this gift from God count, which can help us finish our projct successfully.
6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our activities and research support required coursework and curriculum standards by making the works, tasks or jobs appropriat for our age and for the standards set. Th new skills that we learned were the skill of interacting politely and friendly to other people and the skill of having teamwork. Th group concepts that we practiced were how to approach people to give us tips and advics regarding the construction of our website. We also practiced how we should work together to make our jobs easier and done faster. We better understand diplomacy and international issues by opening more our minds and finding solutions to the problems of the society that need help and guidance of the people. And lastly, the use of the Intrenet for teaching and learning has been more effective than traditional methods because it is more convenient, easier and more fun. It also provides easier access to facts and data that could also be found in books but could spend up some more time.
