Four or five hundred years ago, people moved to Okayama. Most people make a living from fishing and hunting, and then the Hans slowly move here.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

The first thing to overcome is the arrangement of student participation time and the cooperation of parents. In addition to taking into account the conflict between the student's personal time and tuition and other competitions, the local festival / climate / environment / day and night difference, and complete the project The interviews and explorations required are a big test for students and teachers! The information collected through the website is incorrect. Therefore, it is necessary to cooperate with the information obtained by the students during the actual visit, and compare and verify them one by one. The control of the visit process is also a major problem that we must overcome. Communication and progress control are again the difficulties we have to overcome one by one.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

The major scenic areas in Kaohsiung City are constantly updated and tilted. Each township has its own advantages. Especially, Okayama combines many local features to provide a good place for leisure and weekdays. The members of this group were all born in Kaohsiung. Some of us live in North Kaohsiung; some of us live in South Kaohsiung. Each region has different understanding of scenery due to different backgrounds, but we want to see through our own vision I introduce Kaohsiung to everyone, so I made this website with Okayama District, Kaohsiung City as a starting point. I hope that people who want to come to Okayama can use the spirit of exploration to understand Okayama in depth and expand it to Kaohsiung.

In the nine-year education curriculum, the division and integration of academic professional courses, under the guidance of teachers, students can plan in advance, learn how to participate in practical ecological experience activities, and analyze the characteristic development of Okayama. The action records the entire research process, learns and grows from experience, and experiences the integration and application of the abilities of each subject learned. In the team, the study of labor division and cooperation, understanding and recording of experience and sharing ... More importantly, learning to care for this land and the strong feelings for Kaohsiung. We believe that with this successful learning experience, students will be able to help themselves in future learning and role playing in the team.

The added capabilities of each team member are computer image processing, movie editing and editing capabilities, layout and design required for web page production, retouching, and knowledge and use of various software.

In addition to the embellishment of Okayama architecture and cuisine in art, the spirit of humanism and the efforts of pioneers to reclaim the local area have a lot of help in understanding and promoting Taiwan's history and humanities.
