2. Summary of Our Project

The school can be said to be the cultural center of the community. It is also the birthplace of community aesthetics. Cun-Dong Elementary School is close to the Bagua Mountain platform. The school is located in Fuxing Village, Dacun Township, Changhua County. The campus is full of greenery, and the school building is hidden among the dense woods. The whole school is like a courtyard in a fairy tale. The design of the school building is combined with the campus landscape, and there are many hidden beauties in it. But those beauty in our campuses is often ignored by us who are in them. Therefore, we set out to explore public art on campus. Lead everyone to re-understand the beauty of the Cun-Dong Elementary School campus

And also open WiFi, you can wireless Internet access. It's easy for us to discuss, search and print documents in the school. Network facilities at team members' homes: Every team member has a computer at home. Connect to Adsl or broadband fiber optic network to access the Internet. After school time. We continued our research using email, web hard drives, and our interactive website.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

1.Difficulties in article translation: Because English is not our mother tongue or second language. Everyone has studied English for less than 4 years. Therefore, it is a difficult task for us to translate articles written in Chinese into English. We use the online translation system to check whether the translation is correct. Then ask the teacher to assist us in making the final confirmation. integration is difficult: In order to clearly show the beauty of our school. Everyone took a lot of photos. However, it is a big problem to fully display in the limited space of the website. Fortunately, the teacher taught us to use PhotoScape software to integrate graphics. With the assistance of a teacher, it really helped us a lot. 3.the difficulty of making web pages: Because our web production capabilities and skills are not good enough. Encountered great difficulties in making web pages. This section is guided and assisted by two teachers. Let us study step by step. The teacher guided us to learn Kompozer web creation software. Let's successfully complete the production of our cyberfair webpage. 4.the study time is not easy to arrange: Because the school curriculum and activities are already very compact. We can only use the daily lunch break for research. Many times we take full advantage of the convenience of computer technology. Communicate, share or exchange data using email, interactive websites, web drives. In addition, the teacher grouped us in advance. Everyone is responsible for what they are responsible for. Use the holidays to discuss with your family. I will share the information with you. So that we can better understand what we are studying. During this period, everyone's feelings became more harmonious.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

First, arouse the concern of students and residents for their school: Through the research process, let us know our school better and deepen our identification with school. I hope that through our sharing, people in my hometown will be more concerned about everything in their hometown. Second, spread through the web, so that the beauty of the place can be seen by more people: Our webpage links to the school website. Share through the web, so that more people can see the beauty of Cundong elementary school and share our thematic research data.

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

1.Integration with the Chinese Language: Curriculum The presentation of research results needs to be described in words. At this time, we can see whether the Chinese language training is solid. Through the study and organization of data. We have learned a lot of narrative grammar and the ability to integrate texts to present your point. Writing a progress report also improves our narrative and integration capabilities. 2.Integrated learning activities: The learning process of the entire Internet World Expo. We have to do briefings, reports, planning exhibitions, etc. These are rarely encountered in ordinary classrooms. The process requires a lot of communication, coordination and teamwork. Learn from this web expo. Let us better understand the importance of teamwork and communication. 3.Integration of the use of information technology capabilities in research activities: We often use computer networks, network hard drives, emails, message boards, etc. We are learning to research and share in a more efficient and timeless manner. Let us improve our ability to use information. I also learned the skills of photo editing, web design, and photography skills.

Project Elements

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

1.the most useful tools: (1) FACE BOOK: Let us not be restricted by time and space. You can share information instantly and conduct online discussions. (2) Network Hard Disk: The most troublesome part when doing research is not knowing where to store the data. The USB flash drive will have virus problems. The data is stored on the school computer hard drive, and we are afraid that others will disturb or be restored. So our network hard drives come in handy. 2.the technology equipment we use: (1)computers: Data processing and storage, web page production (2)tablets: photo shooting (3)broadband networks: uploading and downloading data files, discussion, and contact (4)printers: printing research data (5)digital cameras: shooting activity records (6)phones: contacting team members and related assistants 3.the computer software we use: (1)Kompozer: webpage editing and management (2)PhotoScape: image processing (3)Network Hard Drive: digital photo storage and management (4)Microsoft Word: text data processing (5)Internet Explorer / Google Chrome: browsing the webpage, data query (6)Filzer: webpage data uploading (7)G-MAIL / Face Book: communication between team members

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

1. Arouse people's attention to the preservation of local historical tourism resources through our research. We found that our hometown has rich and precious tourism resources. However, these resources with historical stories are gradually disappearing with economic development. 2.Spread the beauty of local art and humanities through the web Introduce through our website. I hope that people at home and abroad can leave a deep impression on the beauty of our school just by looking at our website. This in turn triggers everyone to discover the beauty of the place together. Further know how to cherish protection. Let this priceless local treasure last forever.

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

First, arouse the concern of students and residents for their hometown Through research process and photography exhibition activities. Community residents are invited to visit the exhibition. Let students and community residents care more about their school. Second, spread through the web, so that more people can see the beauty of the place Our website links to the school website and school Facebook fan page. Share via web. Let more people who care about our school or do not know the school, can see the beauty of our Fu-Sing elementary school campus. And share our case studies.

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

Thank you for Cundong elementary school. Let us grow and learn in such a beautiful environment. Our principal often encourages us. Strengthen our confidence. Thank you for his assistance and encouragement. Thanks to the school teachers for their warmly providing works and participating in our photography exhibition. Enrich the content of exhibition activities.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

1.Interesting discoveries Originally we thought there was nothing special about our school. However, in the process of data collection, we found that there are many reports on the beautiful campus of Cundong Elementary School on the Internet. Only then did we know that our Village East Elementary School was a popular check-in spot on the Internet. But ourselves have not discovered the beauty of our campus well. as the saying goes'the spectators see the chess game better than the players', we should know more about our school. 2.Lessons learned When editing web pages, we often shut down at the beginning because we forgot to save the file. Therefore, the hard-to-finish web pages often disappear. However, when the preliminary web page was previewed, it was found that the photos could not be displayed at all. After consulting the teacher, I learned that the file name of the photo must be in English or numbers, and Chinese cannot be used as the file name. 3.Surprise I thought there was nothing precious in our hometown. After participating in the research, we realized that we have such rich historical and cultural treasures in our hometown. Such as the national historic site 'Xingxian academy of classical lenrning', railway barn, police story hall and so on. And through visits, we can connect the knowledge we learned in school with our lives. The inspiration for us is that as long as we work hard, our lives are full of surprises. We should cherish and preserve everything that is precious in our hometown. 4.Learned experience What I learned the most from participating in the School Cyberfair is that we must work in teams. Because as long as the group works together, help each other, cheer up. This will allow the ongoing project to continue. In the future, we can do it again, twice, or even ten times.
