6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our integrated project, fit to our national curriculum standard for Sociology subject, about Multicultural society. The project also connected with our IT curriculum: developing a website, editing picture and Entrepreneurship curriculum: Entrepreneurship education Ciputra Way. According to us, our entrepreneurship curriculum shape a new mindset for us, we can see that entrepreneurship education will change the poverty in our society. Therefore, through this project we learned more about entrepreneurship principles and share to the Global School Net Community. From this project we learned: how to research about a leadership figure, we can explore the information from various resources (internet, books, interview, video, etc), compile it and develop a web. This is a new skill for us. We feel proud about this web, and we really enjoyed our group team work. We discovered, creating a web is a challenge for us, not easy but it’s interesting. We learned many things from the internet more than our traditional class room. Our team is the first group in our school that join the Global School Net (the Cyberfair project competition).
