6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
This activities and research are collaborative learning related to our Social Study, Computer lesson, and History. Our school uses a National curriculum integrates with an Entrepreneurship curriculum. In the Entrepreneurship curriculum, we learn how to promote Indonesian's tourism resorts by building the website and publish our project using internet. Because if we use internet there will be more people who see and read rather than if we write it in a book or poster which has limited access.
