Second, this was our first time to make webpage. Because of the technique difficulty, small number of computer and lacking in experience, we had to be patient to ask teachers for advice and made unremitting efforts. Third, times are tight. Because of no clear assignment and thoughtless, we collected incompletely martials, and the analysis was not clear enough. 1,To consult with an open mind. We learned and studied from teacher Lv Qing and computer experts around us. Members had strong study independently ability, and the spirit in the team was high. 2, We took full of advantage of National Day holidays and two-day weekend to visit and participate in the photography.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Life is not a lack of beauty, but the lack of discovery. We have many outstanding cultural heritage to inherit, more beauty needs to be found, as long as to be an observant and conscientious person, you must be a benevolent man. Anything, as long as you insist on doing it, there will be hope of success, this is also a good inspiration when we met difficult on life and study. I will only struggle ahead as long as I have been destined to the distance. Although the initial production is very simple, we have valuable experience, we must select the right entry point and each link, find material, and further study network knowledge to make a better production next time. At the same time, in this activity, we enriched the extra-curricular life, accumulated some important experience and promoted the study. I believe, we will vigorously develop the local culture of Bashan, 'the landscape in Enyang, colorful Bazhong' heyday is in your eyes.

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

Our school offers a variety of courses for specialty training, aesthetic education or social practice so that students can walk out of narrow classrooms and campus, and enter into a broad social world to experience folk customs and life. It aims to foster talents of new-type quality rather than useless nerds engaging in idle theorizing through the comprehensive combination of Chinese language, music, art, morality, history, science and other courses. Only in this way can students establish a correct view on world, life, values and talent. Through the combination of some knowledge acquired at school and practical activities, we participate in integrative practical activities after class to expand our horizon. Know details about the scenery, folk culture, and rich products of our hometown, which can help us not only know about our hometown and improve our ability to social practice, but also gain abundant knowledge and writing materials
