Project Elements

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

To complete this project, we use about 10 computers,3 telephones, 3 digital cameras and some bicycles for interviewing, inviting, and making our webs.We think the most important tools is the computer. Without them,we can't complete our web.

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

Before the interview, we hold a small meeting to decide the interview content, route, and bus issue. By contact the students, we can list the workable plan, after arrival, we designate the job to have the interview according to his own view. In the interview, we can hold the thinking: kind, warm, honest and time-saving, try our best not trouble the related people’ work and to interview as detailed as possible.

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

We can have the deep impression to wuzhong local culture, and also can show the students kind, warm, honest to communicate to the local people. At the same time. Our students can have the knowledge of the local economy and production ability situation. Through this item, we found that the place near the wuzhong downtown are all rich, for the local can do the business easily, to take the job in the city to spread the third industry development. But the place far from the wuzhong is relatively poor for it mainly rely on farm. And the villagers are in the low income.

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

As the local warmly recommended and broaden the local situation, special products and geographic scenery, they try their best to advise us the best route, most influential enterprises and the talents.

Lesson: in this interview, owing to careless talk, we are misunderstood as the program of focus interview and keep us away worrying publicize its negativeness. Surprise: many students returned to the homeland to use their ability and become the talent in his industry.
