Lack of experience, the cognitions of CyberFair was little. By communicating with staffs working in Town & Talent Company, students learned more about CyberFair. No good PC skill, did not know how to process image and webpage making with computer. Teacher instructed student in computer after school. The task was hard and we were pressed for time. No more time to have any extracurricular activities. We asked classroom teachers not assign too much homework in this time and be able to give students some coaching to help them keep up with the class. We made an appointment by phone so that we could have a good visit.
