4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We faced some challenge but overcome it to present our best work.

(1)without enough time We were busy for school lessons and had not enough time to do the job after school. We studied the webpage issue during lesson but also produced the webpage after school in every evening. We took advantage of holiday to push our schedule either and no waste of any spare time.

(2)unfamiliar with webpage design. The whole team is fresh in webpage design but we overcome the problem with keep asking the director teacher after school to make us clear about the process of webpage design.

(3)lake of experience to organize the information In the beginning, we collected lots of information but had no idea to organize it. Teachers conducted us to divided the job and revised the information. Finally we accomplished our work.

(4)Bad weather It was always rainy when we visited the museum but we always hold our will to go in spite of difficult traffic and bad weather, we go against the cold wind and rain to collect pictures and information. After several visits, we finally did the job as our strong wishes.

(5)Rejected questionnaire Most of the visitors were in hurry for travelling, at the mean time there were few visitors in the rainy day. It took 2 weeks to distribute and collect the questionnaires and learned how to face the rejection.

(6)amendment time after time There are always something imperfect in the design, we discussed with teachers again and again some time we even canceled whole structure rather than minor amendment when teachers figured out the point. But finally we did a good job with the satisfied content.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

We studied and reference the awarded project to obtain the concept of the issue and to realize Juming museum impressively. Most of the all, we are rally honorable to introduce Juming museum to the world.

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

Being a student of information application in senior high school, we should train ourselves to apply our study into reality and that is why we participate the fair to improve our capacity. Even though we have no experience for webpage design, we still did our best to practice all the technique we learned in our class, such as marketing, information analysis and webpage construction to fulfill a complete webpage.

We synthesize the subjects of language, composition, business, information and aesthetics to the project, the teachers moreover gave above training for us intensively. Learn with doing, we made the effort to achieve the work.

We visited the museum several times to interview with the staff and communicated by e-mails to make the project advanced step by step, as well we requested the visitors to answer the questionnaires for information collection.

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

It is a big challenge for us since we are totally freshman in international webpage design, but by the way of this fair we learn a lot about technique and knowledge. We wish such a experience could be carried on to more students.

The residents in Jin-shan community also get closed to Juming Museum through our introduce to realize Master Juming’s concept and art works. By cyber fair, we broaden the reputation of Juming Museum to the world.

When collecting information, we have the friendly assistance from the staff of Museum and visitors who really care about our achievement. We are touched by the creative soul of Juming by means of work in the museum.

We had a journey in Juming Museum during the research and were feed lots first-hand information on the way from the Museum staff. Our school supported us with the computers and study room. Meanwhile we obtained much precious response from the visitor questionnaire.

We were divided into several teams to surf information form internet, collect data from literatures and propose the interview meanwhile we surveyed each art work of Ju Ming to realize what the sculpture means. We talked to the staff and visitors sincerely without fear of rejection in order to get the visitor opinion.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

Even though we learned knowledge in class room but to fulfill what in our brain into the reality is really difficult including the capacity of information collection, design, interviewing and organization. The participation of cyber fair is a helpful practice for us.

In spite of no idea about cyber fair in the beginning, under the conduct of teachers and experience sharing of seniors we made it on hand gradually. We are satisfied by finished the project by teamwork and overcame all difficulty. The research helps us to close to the art works of Ju Ming and to experience that to encourage and support eachother could make the things better.
