4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We only have one laptop cart and the connection is slow so it was hard to get started most days, and we only have a 40 minute period so there was not a lot of time to get finished. Our group also was distracted and off task because of conflicts within our group and a lot of disagreements about who needs to do what.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

My participation in the International Schools CyberFair is that I have created my whole website page and that I have worked with my teammates on designing the website.

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

We learned how to interview people and how to find information. Internet helped us to find information fast.
