Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Kaohsiung is located at Southern Taiwan, and Cijin is an administrative region of Kaohsiung where was small and the south peninsula adjacent to the Xiaogang district. The terrain is long and narrow with Southeast, Northwest toward both approximately 11 kilometers long and 200 meters wide, but due to the Kaohsiung port of the second extension, the canal was to split between Cijin and Xiaogang district. Connecting between Cijin and Cianjhen county is Kaohsiung Harbor Tunnel which is Taiwan's first cross harbor tunnel constructed by caisson method, completed in 1984. Therefore, Cijin became an earliest administrative region of Kaohsiung City which is the only one of the barrier island.

2. Summary of Our Project

Cijin island is a wonderful place of origin of the humanities and fishers. Because of the earlier development, the island has many monuments including fort built in 1874, lighthouse built in 1883. In Cijin, most of the early residents live on fishing but recently due to fish depletion fishing for living has been less and less ;Therefore, most of the residents transform to tourism industry or out of employment. Cijin is rich in tourism resources and has many monuments, including the 'Fort', 'The Lighthouse' and ' Temple', the famous second and third grade monuments.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

For this contest, we met some difficulties. First, we found that taking good pictures is not an easy thing. It’s common to take no sense or not clear photos. So we decide to refer other website’s photo and ask for photographers advice. After this useful help, we finally had useable pictures. Second difficult we met is we have a lot of information about Cijin, but we felt that is not good enough to touch someone’s heart, so we set out to interview local people, let us had more story about Cijin island and it’s history.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

In this period of time, we realized that have good teamwork is the very important thing. When we met any problem, we could find the answer together. CyberFair really lets us more close and let more people know our country and beautiful campus. I think this is very meaningful.

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

The production of CyberFair can learn a lot of things that are not normally learned in class, such as the distribution of work, make use of time, etc., we also learned that the work is not an easy thing. Subject research is a different learning way from the regularization teaching of school. Because each person maybe gets the different harvest, it all depend on how you effort for. Through the research, we had more experienced than others. And about the production of web pages, data collection, data typesetting, team cooperation also has a practical application. These are all kinds of personal experience is necessary to pay effort, so get something is very valuable.
