1.Webpage making experience lack.Not skilled in web authoring software,we finally decided to utilize the CISS-based template coming out of Town and Talent Technologies. 2.Time shortage.Our four members are all sophomore students.In face of all the subjects,they are not available for deeper investigation,and they are merely available during the big break activity on Wed afternoon to have photograph taken and to have interviews before record keeping. 3.One-sided interview scope.As it is not convenient to cover and to take pictures of the private cross stitch,we have to go to the cross-stitch shop. 4.Due to our poor English,we have to ask the masters in the Town and Talent Technologies for help,for the entry,according to the organizing committee,should be in English.So we here thank them again.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
We have deep feelings when looking back.We finally got the information gathering done after one-month effort.In order to let more people love cross stitch,we noted down the concrete cross stitch-making process after referring to related information on the Internet?real cross stitch and explination from the shop owner.The webpage,not a good look,however,as it was made by ourselves,we are gratified.What to our relief most is not the accomplished webpage but the whole process in which we have learnt much beyond books;have learnt much about the development and manufacturing process of cross stitch;have felt cross stitch master Yang's perfection and clinging pursuance of cross stitch.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Through do-it-ourselves investigation of the cross stitch in surrounding civilian life,we had access to education. The activity this time met the needs of our school's courses: the new curriculum reform requires students' book learning and social activities participating. And the social class, worth four credits,has been carried out already. During the investigation visits and webpage-making process,we encouraged and communicated withe eatch other and graspe the ABC,step by step,which not only has enhanced the friendship between us,but also has strengthened the team spirit and made us understand our duty that we should conscientiously study the scientific and cultural knowledge and skills.The investigation of social practice has developed our ability to participate in social practice which has made us feel the importance of scientific and cultural knowledge.And this can promte our better learning of all subjects.
