Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

A word that means beautiful land, 'Formosa' , was once used to describe Taiwan. The island lives up to its name as it has more than just beautiful natural landscape, it also contains a constitution and legal system governed under democracy. The history of Taiwan, its road to reach true democracy reflects the value of justice and citizen rights. Taiwan's legal system separates power into multiple offices to prevent unjust due to one's overpower. The procuration system balances out the power of judges to ensure justice in court, this guarantees the citizens' rights and wellbeing.

2. Summary of Our Project

The system of public procuration exists to balance the powers of judges, and to ensure the objectivity of the court. The prosecutors act as supervisors to maintain a just legal system; in this project our team will interview the present head of Taiwan's Higher Prosecutors' Office, Mr. Xing Taizhao to understand his career and his view on Taiwan's procuration system. The team would conduct research on Mr. Xing's accomplishments and further understand the importance of the procuration system through the information provided by Xing, providing us a different perspective regarding the procuration system.

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:1

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dedicated connection

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

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):

The internet has improved through the years, the internet is now available in classrooms, we are allowed to work during class while accessing the internet. The internet allows students to do research, make surveys, and contact each other. The upload connection speed used in the classroom is about 10.58 Mbps, download about 2 Mbps, since our school is in the mountains, the connection speed is very inconsistent and very unstable. When the Wifi is broken, we use desktop computers that are connected to the ethernet to do work.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Due to Covid-19 safety protocols, we are being restricted because the interview with Mr. Xing Taizhao had to be postponed and it was especially difficult for him and us because the interview had to be arranged. Most of the times he was available we couldn’t go and the times we could he couldn’t come because he was busy with a huge responsibility on his back, therefore, it was hard when arranging the interview with him.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

The cyber fair team conducted research on Mr. Xing Taizhao and Taiwan's High Prosecutor's Office, including Xing’s background story, Xing’s experiences, Xing’s accomplishments as well as the office’s history and structure. The members of the team collected valuable data through the interview of Mr. Xing and the questionnaire used to construct the website.

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

This CyberFair project discovers and addresses the judicial system of Taiwan and one significant prosecutor in Taiwan, this is related to school academic content of Taiwan civics class. These learnings can be beneficial for understanding our rights as Taiwnese citizens. Furthermore, students learn research and analysis throughout the project, which practices academic skills. Students have learned to code websites with HTML and CSS, this is linked to computer classes in school. When doing the project, our group also practices teamworking, we divide work so that everyone could contribute to the project.

Project Elements

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

A CyberFair project includes research, communication, interviewing, video editing, and most importantly, website design, coding, and publishing. To do this, we need help from technology. For this project, students used 8 personal laptops to do research on Mr. Xing Taizhao from online data. Search engines play an important role in the research, Google allows us to find interview videos done by others before, news reports on Mr. Xing Taizhao, to get a better understanding of our research target. Youtube is also very useful when it comes to learning new skills. Before interviewing, the director gets to use Youtube videos to learn how to shoot good interview videos. Including tips like two camera angles. Moreover, Google Drive, including the instant sharing function, folder creating, and supports a variety of types of documents, did a great job of helping us be organized. With the fully-functioning Google services, it makes the crewmates more connected even without being together. Google docs are the main way we store information and data. Besides, we used Google Form to collect data for later analysis. The team used Google Forms to create and send surveys. As for filming the interview, the team used mobile phones to capture and record the words of Mr. Xing. When transferring video files from mobile to laptops, the team uploads it to Google Drive where the files will not be compressed. And for video editing and adding subtitles, the editor chose to use iMovie, which is built into macOS for free. In addition, the team used Visual Studio Code to code the website, editing based on online HTML templates. Finally, the school server was used to publish the website.

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

Through the process of conducting research on Mr. Xing Taizhao, collecting data through a survey, interviewing Mr. Xing Taizhao, and finalizing all of the information by constructing a website, we act as “ambassadors” because websites and videos can be accessed by anyone with interest on the internet, so we are spreading the research we have done on this specific person.

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

After conducting an extensive study into the structure and history of the Chief Prosecutor, we designed a survey for members in our community. By emailing the survey to students at KCIS, they begin to gain a basic understanding of the project. Through this survey, people learned about the knowledge of the Chief Prosecutor, Mr. Xing Taizhao and the system of public procuration. As we publish our project onto globalschoolnet, it will reach many others and it would allow people to understand our local judicial system, including its history and structure. This is a move of spreading knowledge.

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

Throughout the process, we received a lot of help from Mr. Hsiao Shih- Hsuan and Mr. Peng Ying- Tsong. They gave the team beneficial suggestions and guidance. For instance, the students didn’t know how to set up a website. Therefore, the school’s computer teacher, Mr. Peng Ying-Tsong, walks the student step by step through the process of setting up the website. He was patient and helped the team solve multiple issues. Helping the team to finish the project in time and resolve any possible problems. In addition, we thank Mr. Xing Taizhao for his time for our interview. He is a very busy Chief Prosecutor, so it is hard for him to find time for our interview. Throughout the interview, he patiently answered our questions, taught us knowledge of our country’s judicial system. This knowledge can also benefit the people who visit our website, which we hope to help people further understand about Mr. Xing Taizhao and the judicial system in Taiwan.
