Questionnaires are required to ask teachers to review, discuss, modify, to complete it. Fortunately, the students are very serious efforts to complete this project.

It is a glorious thing when students and community people know what they are doing in the work. This is also a process of student learning team cooperation. Everyone who has gone through this process has a full harvest.

Through this learning activity, students are keen to explore outdoors and try to interact more with the community, so that we can better understand the relationship between people.

Using Internet teaching, students are interested in the part of the exploration and learning process, and it is easy to collect on the data. Learning results can be presented to everyone very quickly.

Project Elements

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

The most commonly used tool is the personal computer. Software, including Adobe Dreamweaver, Ulead PhotoImpact or Adobe Photoshop. Through these software, students learn how to edit web pages efficiently.

Other commonly used tools, such as mobile phones, digital cameras. They all have access to contact and record all processes.

So that students try to use the latest technology, can facilitate their learning and daily life.

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

Through the collection of questionnaires, students understand the basic information and ideas of people in the community. After analysis, students have statistics on useful information. Through interviews with community experts, so that students experience the skills of interviews. These work processes allow students and communities to interact more with each other.

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

Through this site, students can learn more about the local monuments. They learn to explore their own living environment and understand the community of people. Through questionnaires and interviews, students take the initiative to learn and explore the answers to their questions. At the same time, let the people of the community know that we care about these things.

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

Local community people are very enthusiastic about the maintenance of the environment and monuments. Usually, they sometimes share this information with Facebook. So, when the students invited them to help interview or fill out the questionnaire, they were happy to help.
