Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Jinshan Shuiwei, a small area in the northernmost part of Taiwan, has some very strange topography because of its mountains and seas. These special terrains later became famous attractions, and we hope to use this opportunity to promote more people to know it.

2. Summary of Our Project

These special attractions, such as 'Lion Head Mountain', ' Twin Candlestick Islets', 'Mysterious Coast' and the hot spring guest house of the Governor at the Japanese occupation period, All of then have special geographical features , so visitors are everywhere everydan. Visitors did some questionnaires and then we analyzed them to understand why they are attractive.

3. Our Computer and Internet Access

A. Percentage of students using the Internet at home:more than 50%

B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:more than 6

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dedicated connection

D. Number of years our classroom has been connected to the Internet:more than 6

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

When we start with the webpage theme, everyone has his own ideas, so the webpage theme cannot be determined immediately when selecting the material. After this problem we encountered another one. Cause there are so many members, everyone has a lot of personal affairs to deal with, and we hope that all members can participate in the whole process, so we can't find a common time to work together.

After a series of meetings and discussions, we got it. And then the revisions were finally completed, confirming the data and the parts of the questionnaire.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

The students are more familiar with the essentials of web editing, learn how to investigate, and they also know the local environment. Therefore, we are very grateful for this activity because it makes a lot of sense.

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

Compared to the traditional way, through the Internet to teach, we can see the latest first-hand news. And the pictures and videos on the Internet are lively and students are easy to enter the learning environment. Through the on-the-spot investigation and questionnaire survey, students will enjoy the concept of “learning by doing”. The entire learning outcome is presented to the world as a web page, which allows students to strengthen their webpage production skills.

Project Elements

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

In this project, we used 10 personal computers and 10 mobile phones. Our students use the Adobe Dreamweaver software to edit web pages, use the 'Line' software for group communication, and use the Internet, books, magazines, and news to find and collect data. Each of these tools has its own unique advantages, and it is important that students work with the right tools.

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

In order to complete the project, our students worked hard to talk to the tourists and get the questionnaires. For these questionnaires, they walked into the community to interview strangers, which led them to go out and stay away from home. For this reason, some people fell and were injured because they walked carelessly. Some people were sad because the questionnaire was rejected. These are all interesting little stories from the whole event.

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

This is a complete introduction to the Jinshan Shuiwei website, and our students took first-hand photos through actual visits. Through the photo presentation, the local attractions and travel methods are fully presented on the webpage, and then some online community software, such as FaceBook, Line, Blog, etc., are published to let people who come to the Jinshan Shuiwei area get a deeper understanding. At the same time attract more people to the community.

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

Our webpage mainly introduces local attractions, so detailed explanations and information provided can increase the number of tourists and help the economic development of the community. As a result, it attracts the attention of local residents and stores, and they are willing to assist after we explain the purpose of the website.
