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

• Our research can help us to remember every loving journey EDEN Foundation made to Da Xi Tan and to record our school’s story with EDEN as a historical document. On the other hand, it will help students and teachers in our school to know EDEN better and to understand the greatness of the love across Taiwan Strait. Our research can also be seen as a development of school course. The research result can be content of our school’s course. • Our monographic research plan leads us to explore our school’s cultural resources which we could use to cultivate students and influence society.

Instead, Da Xi Tan is a new countryside with its strong steps to change its poverty. • Local people from different fields gave us lots of support. They admired our spirit to communicate with outside. They want to see that through our efforts our hometown can become a better place.
