4. Problems We Had To Overcome

First of our problems is that we have to interview with Pingtung Aboriginal businesses, but others are doing very good business is too busy, they can not be an appointment with us. Only some businesses are willing to let us interview. In addition, the factors of students’s family. We visited to Aboriginal communities on the holiday. But many parents are reluctant to let their children go out. We had to communicate with those parents, so that students can participate in these meaningful activities.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

It means that I can complete the data and build a page the students. I also observed community culture with students.

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

In order to complete the project, we need to have the ability to visit, as well as literature. We would also like to visit in the field, and shopkeepers interviewed. Because of the language problem, we must translate the pages one by one. And shall have the ability to produce pages to be able to come up with such a project.

In addition, we regularly about students and schools. Also need to manage the students three meals a day, as well as student productivity. From trip we also want to observe each student is responsible for chunk is complete, on time supervision.

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

We require the use of computers, Web design, network. In the midst of this, I think the most important thing, because speed directly affects the efficiency. Another translation is also very important, because translation is a big job and takes a lot of time to complete.

Computer equipment is also very important, and I think will affect students ' ability. Because of our students live in rural areas, their procedures less ability to write page.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.

We have visited an Aboriginal rattan shops, he insisted we only lets us access students have to go to class. Later, we did arrange for students to go to class, they accepted our visits. At the time of data collection, students also raised many questions, until we find the problem also found that Taiwan Aboriginal history is so touching us.

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

Aboriginal parents in our community, we are very supportive of the project, was also moving. Students learn about the history of their ancestors, while parents are interested in Aboriginal issues for us, too, as it relates to food, as well as traditional. Few pages from tourism to introduce them. So they will feel our respect for Aboriginal culture.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

Almost all of our volunteers are students. Because Aboriginal topics are closely related to them, so they are when volunteers are very willing. Go out to visit and can provide many special experiences for them. Due to the economic life of the students performance is poor, take them out to visitors they would like to, but also happy to design Web pages.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

Funny thing is, as Aboriginal themes, we saw their enthusiasm from an Aboriginal person. Meeting for the first time, you can always feel they simply.
