We used computers, telephones, TV, digital cameras, scanners, computer software, libraries, newspapers, oral interviews. WE used the computers for typing information in ms word and designing our site by macromedia dreamveawer mx, adobe photoshop cs, total commander xp. By means of the telephones we appointed the time for our meetings and interviews. Our team watched sport competitions on researching kind of sports of our project. Especially we most used digital camera and scanner for taking pictures. The most valuable tools were newspapers because we would like to make the common things and differences between our sport local community and the world. The most helpful were the computers and the internet. Without these technologies we couldn't complete our project.
