"The project was the most rewarding
experience I've had in my 35 years of teaching. In addition
to academic skills, our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students
also gained many life-long personal skills, such as working
in cooperative groups with people of different ages, being
confident in meeting and talking with people regardless of
their job or expertise, and learning to communicate

"CyberFair is a meaningful
use of the Internet in the classroom. As more and more
schools are wired, they will need online activities that are
integrated with the curriculum. CoSN recommends CyberFair as
an outstanding example of an online project that provides
students with learning they couldn't do in any other way. "
- Keith Krueger,
Consortium for School Networking, USA
"Our members ask, "What do
you do with the Internet that combines student learning and
creativity?" ISTE points to CyberFair as an example of an
activity that teachers can weave into almost any curriculum
and that provides students with a way to learn about their
communities and connect to the world around them. "
Schrum, Former President, International Society for
Technology in Education

"Thanks so much for giving me the
opportunity to evaluate these amazing web pages. How
exciting! It is truly an eye-opener to see what kids are
capable of creating with modern resources. I had completely
underestimated the abilities of the very young, based upon
my experience teaching at institutions where learning
potential was stunted by too much leniency."
-Parent, Wai'anae, Hawaii,
"We have learned much in the course of
doing this project. Even though we had studied the story of
Rome since early elementary school, it was not until now
that we really began putting the various aspects of the
history, life, and culture of Rome together. Due to the
E-mail of visitors to our web site, we have begun to
appreciate how putting all this material together helps us
and others to discover new insights into the story of Rome.
We are happy to have had a part in contributing to the
cultural education of others around the world."
-Teacher, Citta dei Ragazzi di Roma
"Our students feel like their work is a
real benefit to the community. They are very proud of the
fact that some of our Erving businesses have been contacted
by customers who have found them on the Internet. The
students know they are providing a valuable service to the
community in a way that helps our local businesses recoup
some of the investment that they have made in the local
schools with their tax dollars."
