Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

The community this project involves is the students from Victoria Academy, located in Yunlin County, Central Taiwan. The participants include their siblings and parents.

2. Summary of Our Project

This project is about the recycling and exchange of uniforms. We will be collecting used and unneeded uniforms from students. They mostly do not fit their owners anymore. After uniforms have been well-cleaned and organized, the students who participated can get the uniforms that fit their sizes back. The exchange prevents parents from paying more to buy uniforms; also prevents unnecessary burdens to the natural environment.

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

B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:2-3

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dial-up modem

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Sharing is Caring. Uniforms Sharing; Environment Caring.

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

While we were conducting this project, we learned various skills essentially required in this era.

Such as media promotion. We used several social media to promote our concept to the public. Every post we sent contained clear images and concise texts. These ensured every audience understood what we were intended to promote.

The experience we gained from this project will surely benefit us in our future development.

Project Elements

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

All of our members had access to all the essential technologies. Every one of us had either a laptop, a desktop, or a tablet. Most of the devices were personally owned by students. We used the internet for information like statistics and images.

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

Our promotion was very successful. Since we recorded a video about our concept and idea, numerous students and their parents were attracted to participate in this project. Also, we entered every class in our school to encourage students to exchange their uniforms. We made a large poster for the school fair, and we placed it in an eye-catching location.

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

The school once held second-hand textbooks and second-hand dance shoe activities. But the number of sharing items was relatively small. The scale of this year's school uniform sharing activity was unprecedented.

Due to the success of the first school uniform sharing activity, the Student Council will continue to hold the event in the future. Every year in June and December, before the season swap. Volunteers will be invited to help share uniforms, reducing the issue of unsuitable school uniforms. Some students and parents suggested that we could expand the 'second-hand clothing flea market.' So that everyone can exchange the clothes that are no longer being worn but suitable for sharing. It saves money and does environmental protection to achieve the goal of a sustainable earth.

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

Sincerely appreciate Fengtai Foundation for the sponsorship. They provided us with souvenirs that encouraged students to participate. Their support allowed us to continue to share uniforms and protect the environment.
