Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

We here is located in mountainous areas, industry is underdeveloped, the main resource is coal, however these resources doesn’t bring much benefit for the local economy, and environmental pollution is serious, the Industrial town has now become dilapidated. It seems that the 5.12 earthquake brings new vitality to the Wangcang economy, the development is very rapid. The price of real estate is rising every day, the supermarkets are also more and more, the things are better and better, and the price is higher and higher. The local agricultural industry is mainly rice and corn, winter crops are mainly wheat. Now herbal medicine planting is more and more popular in the mountains, aquaculture also has certain development. The main is to raise pigs and sheep. Vegetation is lush, and the wild products are also relatively abundant.

2. Summary of Our Project

Everyone has ideas and their own ideas in hearts, these ideas might be very classic or ordinary. But we are still young, so we should make our dreams come true. However, to have the spirit of exploration is the first step we should go out, to study, to analyze, to know the world in front of you. Bitter, tired, experience here, harvest is also formed in this process when you were working laboriously, tired and experienced. So although I suffer difficulties, I am happy, although I am tired, I am proud. We learn to do webpage, holding a debate meeting, discussing questions, interviewing fellows. We are growing up in a trickle of sweat.

3. Our Computer and Internet Access

A. Percentage of students using the Internet at home:less than 20

B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:1

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dedicated connection

D. Number of years our classroom has been connected to the Internet:4-6

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):

The school has more than 1300 students, and the total number of teaching computers is more than 150, because the time is longer, part of the computers have many malfunctions, so they are not very useful. A single 10M optical fiber shoulders the whole office system accesses. Speed is slow when the whole are surfing online. In addition that there are many people and a few computers, so the computers can’t idle, it has a great influence on students' creation.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

In the production process, we often encounter strange codes, can’t use image processing software, interviewing outside and so on. With the support of Principal Qing in our school, we take the spare time to surf the Internet, going out to interview, to learn webpage making method from others, so our work can be completed successfully.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Through this activity, we learned a lot of knowledge, not only get a great harvest on the network and on webpage making, but also understand philosophy and the world deeply, I believe that we will gain more in the near future, we will do better.

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

Our class schedule is very busy, and we have no chance to surf online in the computer class. In order to finish this project, we put the main activity time in extracurricular, watching the news, talking about news, holding discussion meeting, engage in group activities and so on, enrich students' spare life, promote the individual's cognitive ability. In class, our teacher mainly teaches us learning webpage making skills, graphic processing method, to make the students master the skills of knowledge. The combination between inside and outside of the classroom creates favorable conditions to finish Cyberfire smoothly.

Project Elements

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

Camera, computer, internet, printer

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

Every time some people get together to discuss in every activity, then go to ask the teacher to ensure if it can be past. We begin to take action after our teacher allowed. For example, we will choose the interviewers after our interview activity is agreed by the teacher, by which a student to contact, the remaining classmates will have an appointment after it was allowed, to think out the questions, preparing the pens, notebooks and recording telephone. Safety problem should be considered before setting up, which the teacher has to say to us in each trip. In school, we held some Cyberfire knowledge lectures, the headmaster Qing command for us by himself, at our events, in addition to our own publicity, it has also attracted many interested students to join in speech, and it plays a very important role to develop our activities among students.

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

Many people around me are infected throughout the event, more and more people feel that reforming and opening brings changes for us. More people (parents, teachers, classmates ...) know more about Cyberfair. The people have new understanding to our secondary vocational school students, and they also have a newer understanding to the internet. Also placed more hope for us.

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

The specialized teachers in our school provided a great help for our webpage design, our school headmaster Qing Dechang gave us great support and put forward the guiding opinion, in which played great role. Our work aroused curiosity of people, they also cooperated with us actively, and they contributed to finishing this work.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

We have ever thought that the world is under our feet, but foreign is far away from us. We can’t decide and care the diplomacy of a country and peace of a world, and we can only laugh and lament after see the lives of world. I also used to think that let us do the things of those adults when we grow up. However, we all just like growing up through this activity. We have never seen the problem easily. Everyone is responsible for his country. The bitter cry is echoing in our ears again. There will be another enemy stand up in your mind after down with your enemy in your heart, when you down with all the enemies, suddenly look back, you find that there is only your own, then you become lonely. A person can’t become a society, there is no one call a person people, he is not the person
