Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Our local community is the area in and around Taiwan. As a small country in West Asia, Taiwan has issues lacking support for sports and sports players, as most people believe sports are just recreational activities that are a waste of time. This issue persists not only in Taipei but extends to all of Taiwan.

2. Summary of Our Project

To combat stereotypes about sports and Taiwanese athletes, Harvard graduate Cheng Ho has created the Choxue League, an organization dedicated to letting all Taiwanese students explore sports, providing tournaments for students who do not specialize in sports. Part of their mission statement is to eradicate cram schools from Taiwan, replacing the time people spend learning school content to be used in sport.

Narrative Background Information:

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:4-6

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:not sure

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

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

While we were working on our website, we had problems with understanding of the context under which Choxue was created. Because Taiwan's sport system has been developing for a long time, albeit being a slow and gradual development, the sheer amount of information we had to find and interpret made it difficult for everyone to understand fully what and why Choxue is created for.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

As a local leader striving to improve sport systems in Taiwan, Choxue has dedicated their people to finding ways sport can be integrated into the educational system.

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

As we worked on this Cyberfair project, it fit into our school curriculum guidelines by making us elaborate and practice critical thinking, allowing us to practice our research skills, while considering the impact it might have to the reader. This also forces us to practice our teamwork, using a team to complete the tasks required.

Project Elements

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

To complete our Cyberfair project, we used several different computers, smartphones, and software to create the website. Our computers were used to write down the content, recording the information we assembled, and later used to create the website altogether. The smartphones are used to take photos and record our interview, allowing for it to be presented on the internet for other people to see. The softwares we used, notably Google apps and select Adobe CC apps, allowed us to work together on the same document, while the Adobe apps enabled us to create a website faster and easier.

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 our project, we acted as ambassadors to interview the founder of Choxue, Mr. Cheng Ho. First, we had to represent our school, sending emails to request an interview, noting our school name and the purpose of our interview. After that, our teammates had to go visit him in person, doing the interview, and learning things we would not know otherwise. By using emails to request. an interview, as well as doing the interview ourselves, we act as ambassadors for our school.

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

As the bridge connecting Choxue and communities who don't know about Choxue, our website strengthens the relationship between our school and our communities, providing information they didn't otherwise know about. By spreading this information, we also help promote Choxue, allowing them to excel in what they do, while also letting people who would like to know organizations similar to Choxue learn about a new local leading organization.

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

Although this project seems restricted to the teammates working on the project, we had help from over 200 classmates of all grade levels. As part of our research, finding out about how much Choxue impacts the community, while also finding surprising results about social beliefs in Taiwan, our classmates at school filled out our questionnaire, proving our research was correct, while also backing our information up so people will more likely believe what we have written.
