4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We have some problems making the webpage. Students still didn't learn how to design a wetpage. However, some students are vulnertary to do the web designing jobs and others search for information. Therefore, a collaboration work started because of this project.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

With the participation in International Schools CyberFair, my students and I are able to learn from studenets world wide and we can convey some messages to the world easily through the project.

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

With this project, students can practice their English. Teachers can continuously correct students grammar mistakes in the content. I made a rubric for the content standardaccording to students' learning background knowlege and language ability so studenets can easily see if their content reaches the standard or not. They are not perfect but they can be better and better year after year. For example, compared to last year's project, this year, students are more active and they can do works effectiently.
