Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Through on-site investigation, literature search, and data analysis, we can understand the cultural characteristics, history, and the current development of Myanmar Street. If a lack of literature search or more in-depth understanding is needed, we will conduct interview to gather more information. At the same time, we will use images, set up websites, and take part in related courses to learn more about the street. All of the information gathered will be used in the interpretation activities on site. We also will use the unique eateries, special street sceneries, and historic development as an attraction, in the hope that more people will learn about the colorful culture of Myanmar street.

2. Summary of Our Project

For us, we can become more familiar with the neighborhood we live in. For Huaxin Street, it will help more people to know more about the area and increase the number of tourists.

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

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:not sure

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

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Because our work distribution at the beginning was not clear. So in the process of completing the content, We encountered a lot of difficulties. Such as some people do not understand the meaning of what we are doing, so we need to spend a lot of time to explain. And then the difficulty is uneven time distribution. Although the time of the competition is last year, but the oncoming duan exam and various school activities make us unable to spend more time on this competition. At the same time, translation is also a difficulty problem. Like how to present the meaning we want to express in English and decorate the word. Moreover, there is still a lot of work need to be done before the competition. But fortunately, thanks to the unity of our teammates. We can complete our project on time.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

For us, we can become more familiar with the neighborhood we live in. For Huaxin Street, it will help more people to know more about the area and increase the number of tourists.

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

I learned how to use the Internet to set up websites, interview people, and conduct fieldwork, and to integrate the new skills we learned into written narratives and data compilation, as well as researching relevant books, to synthesize all the information into a complete report on the topic. We believe that learning online is more convenient than traditional methods because we can customize the content of the course at our own pace and level to maximize the benefits of learning.

Project Elements

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

We use the techniques of oral interviews, recorded broadcasts, and filmed to complete our CyberFair project, which allows us to get first-hand information about Burma Street and share it with the public. We got to know the local residents of Burma Street through local cultural and historical groups and conducted further interviews. The video works about Burma Street are the result of the teacher's advice. I find the most meaningful is the oral interview, as this has the potential to be unique information that allows others to see another point of view on Burma Street. Recording broadcasts and filming videos is most helpful to our works, because it can catch up with the convenience of modern Internet, let more people know Burma Street, and achieve the effect of publicity.

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

After visiting Huaxin Street in person and learning about the culture and cuisine of this street. We learn about how to guide the street. And introduced the local food characteristics, such as Burmese milk tea, Indian scones, fish noodle soup, and introduced the religious festivals about Myanmar. We cooperated with our interview content by introducing street features such as street scenes.

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

Our project will spread the culture and characteristics of Myanmar Street to more people . And others can learn about Myanmar's festivals, traditional cuisine, etc. Through the process of visiting Myanmar Street, we also met and interviewed friends who are helping with the Burmese coup.Therefore we learned more about Myanmar politics. Finally in this project, we learned the ability of oral expression and shared the culture of Myanmar to more people.

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

Through our local cultural and historical group - Mingalar Par, I met Miss Huang Fang and Mr. Ke, volunteers of the project. They tell us the origin, characteristics and culture of this place through the way of Du Kou Cai narration. We appreciate the time they put into the project. Thank you very much for honking as a bridge between us and us, and for providing and providing and content methods, so that our environment can also be good with Duke. Finally, we are also very grateful to the school teachers for their help, continuous encouragement and Support, let our work complete successfully.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

During the process, one of the team members accidentally deleted the data of the document halfway through production, so we had to make another copy of the same data. To compensate for the loss, the team member bought drinks for all the participants.
