Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Although Lukang has caused the water transport function to disappear due to siltation of the port, and the shift of political and economic focus, it has been silent for more than a hundred years, but the rich cultural assets left by the ancestors have not disappeared, with the rise of the local culture trend, plus The government's emphasis on cultural assets, whether it is sightseeing, traditional customs ?music, searching for sacred pilgrimages, pilgrimages or tasting food snacks.

2. Summary of Our Project

On an outdoor teaching tour, the narrator led us through an old house that looked like ruins. The teacher told us that this was the home of the richest man in the suburbs of Lugang and Xiamen two hundred years ago. , On a trip we saw the long houses in the Qing Dynasty, the street houses during the Japanese occupation, the buildings of the folk cultural relics museum, and the building materials seen in the Jiuqu alleys ~ Fuzhou cedar, Minnan brick, and yellow granite were all ancestors at that time. It was transported from the original hometown of Fujian, and later we saw the restored Jasmine Humanities Hall and the newly restored three-story building - Chengyihang. In this small trip, we traveled through a hundred years and saw the buildings and monuments that have witnessed the century. We are curious why some old houses are demolished and some are preserved, and we have a deeper understanding of the meaning and importance of the preservation of old houses. At the same time, through the introduction of the Internet Cyberfair, we want more people to understand the beauty and culture of Lukang.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

I think the biggest problem in the group is lack of time. In the school can only use a short lunch break time, and some of the number is often unable to come because many people in this group have other positions are also lunch time meeting. So we use winter vacation more leisure time, and went to the school together to do the site, will be additional at home production. Members of this group are business management department. In the computer program is not often contact, so do not familiar with using it. Thanks teachers carefully taught almost zero from the beginning. If there are small places unknown we will support each other, or Find answers from the web yourself. Every week we will have a meeting for making and discussing website, and draw up a goal, everyone assign different jobs, some teammate may not hand out on time because of the personal reasons, caused our inconvenience, Otherwise we will review our job assign, readjust, and let the finished teammates help those who were unfinished, helping each other, and play our team force.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

The old houses of a city, like the lines on the palm of a hand, are the silent vehicles of its memories. Through this Cyberfair project, students could experience different ways of learning. For us, we realized the importance of reinterpretation, partnership, and mutual respect in the process of knowledge acquisition. With the far-reaching support of information technology, we conducted field surveys in our hometown so as to make more people aware of its features and beauty, which was the truth of Cyberfair. The teachers led us to learn while doing, which provoked our enthusiasm and new ways of thinking. And flipped teaching started!

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

We discussed during our lunch break, using websites making skill in computer class, analysis skill in business class, and language logic in English class. In addition to teachers help, we also visited businessmen, made some investigations ,found some books and looked for studios to learn how to make paper ,and we gained a lot.

During our interviews, we were touched by their concentration on practice. I hope that we could contribute a bit through this Cyberfair project and make more people become aware of the value of a house is not in the space built to live in; it is in the extension of the spirit of its inhabitants.

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

This cultural ploughing may not be able to be observed in short period of time, but its power is strong. We will let more people know Lukang, and let more people see the vigorous vitality of this land. This will be the deepest impact brought in by our Cyberfair project. We hope that people who do not pay attention to Lukang culture can understand the meaning of Old houses after they learn Lukang Culture. We also hope that those who do not know Old houses can start to explore the spirit behind culture, protect it and promote it, so that our Cyberfair project can reach broader efficiency, and lead more people to walk into the cultural corridor at Lukang. We will then protect Lukang more, and spread the beauty of Lukang for more people to know in order to complete the mission of culture inheritance.

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

In this old houses research process, we have set up local communities many times. In addition to visiting the commentary guide, we also conducted questionnaires at the PU-TOU street,. For the gradual disappearance of the old house, we realized that local people agree with the coexistence of the early ancestors and the tradition, and we also support HSU,SHU-CHI to establish Jasmine Humanities and Cultures Environmental Education Center . The value of a house is not in the space built to live in; it is in the extension of the spirit of its inhabitants. With the passage of time, an old house is like an old person with the prime of his life fading away. Although his body can no longer stand up to the ravages of time, in him we find a wealth of wisdom and testimony to history. On our project website, besides introducing the history and development of old houses in lukang, we have also presented different activities to introduce. Through our website, visitors can learn about the historical origin and uniqueness of old houses at Lukang.
