Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Taiwan is a vibrant and dynamic island nation in East Asia, bordered by the East China Sea to the north, and the Philippine Sea to the east. Despite its relatively small size, Taiwan boasts a diverse and captivating landscape. The majestic mountain range runs across the island, and the stunning coastlines offer breathtaking views of the expansive ocean and rugged landscapes, shaping its diverse ecosystem. The island also plays a key role in developing global technology through advanced semiconductor fabrication capabilities, hosting major companies like TSMC, responsible for manufacturing a significant portion of the world's semiconductor chips. Taiwanese culture is a blend of Chinese, Japanese, and Southeast Asians, celebrating festivals like Lunar New Year, and the mid-autumn festival, the island also celebrates its indigenous traditions. In the city, skyscrapers stand tall against the sky, defining the modern skyline and showing the bustling energy of vibrant city life. Education plays an important role in shaping a thriving society, emphasizing academic excellence and exam scores are features of Taiwan’s education system. Despite that, some individuals believe the curriculum focuses too much on scores rather than creativity and thinking. Our research discusses how spatial education can be beneficial to education.

2. Summary of Our Project

Nowadays, education in Taiwan has been constantly improving, and more and more people are able to access education through the Internet. In this project, we’re investigating quality education in Taiwan by understanding the education system with the hope of promoting education for children from different backgrounds and inspiration for their future through the Learn By Space Association. The Learn by Space Association started with the intention of promoting diverse education and raising awareness of quality education in Taiwan. We interviewed this association to learn more about space education and how we can help to contribute and give back to society.

3. Our Computer and Internet Access

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

B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:more than 6

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

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

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):

As the internet is convenient at present days, working online allows our team to manage our work more efficiently. Sharing documents allows our teammates to work together and increase our productivity and the quality of our work. Searching for information online is quicker and more convenient for collecting information. In our classroom, the internet connection speed is around 10.58 megabytes per second (MBPS) and the download speed is 2 MBPS. All members have access to the internet both at home and at school. All 10 team members and two teachers have laptops and mobile phones a total of 12 for each device. Our school Kang Chiao International School Xiugang Campus is up on the mountain, so the connection will sometimes be unstable, but it rarely happens.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

During the process of 10 of us working on this project, we overcame one significant problem many teams all faced — time management. In our school, cyberfair is a club with 2 classes each week. But unfortunately, we spent too much time deciding on a topic, it caused a serious impact on our working time. Another factor is the training time during winter break. Many of our team members had made plans for the week, leading to the situation of us not having enough work done at the beginning of the semester. But despite these difficulties, we managed to communicate successfully and finished the project.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Nowadays, people around the world have begun to focus on following the 17 SDG goals and diverse education. Different schools began to promote quality education and make their classes more flexible and diverse. To an extent, there has been aching space, which is space education. There is an education institution that; is Finland’s Arkki, this institution has been implemented in Shanghai, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. As a result, Taiwan began to follow its way of education. After learning about this way of teaching, students at Kang Chiao International School Xiugang Campus began to explore education in Taiwan that includes the guidelines of SDG goals, which is a children’s education program called Learn By Space. They help children understand that learning isn’t about having tests through space and much more creative educational lessons.

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

The project our team completed for this year’s CyberFair Competition is a unique experience rather than learning from the textbook. We’ve always wondered about ways of education to face brand-new technology and global issues. We have to nourish our research skills to find out the topic that fits our main concept. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the education of our homeland, Taiwan. As students studying in an international school, we were curious about if the education system could follow the global trend. During the research, we studied an immense amount of information about global education. Meanwhile, we have received better writing and communication skills when accomplishing the project website. We were able to communicate with our own teammates and the people we were interviewing, but also with the ability to check our work in English. It was the most challenging part because English wasn’t the native language for most of the teammates. But as we are bilingual students, we kept on learning new strategies for writing and structuring sentences. If facing difficulties, we were able to look up the words on our own. To end, we accomplished the goal of finishing a website that could introduce brand new ways of education in Taiwan to the world. Overall, the team thanks Global School Net for hosting such a memorable competition and experience. It is a great pleasure for our team to participate in this competition as a global citizen and international competitor.

Project Elements

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

During this investigation project, we are required to research information and collect it. Everyone used their computer to gather information and produce text, so a total of 10 computers were used to complete this task. We used the internet to search for information, mainly, to collect our research, and Google Docs to produce our text and gather information. In addition, photos and videos were all collected in Google Drive, and their resources were also shared in GoogDriveive. We used iMovie to edit our video and add substitutes. To create a survey to record the answers, a Google Form is a suitable choice. We used Google Forms to create a survey and collect results from up to 300 responses, and we used Google Sheets to organize our data. Moreover, Google Sheets allowed us to create diagrams and graphs to learn about the public's understanding of Learn to Space education. It is important to have access to communicate with the Learn by Space Corporation. We first reached out to them on Gmail, then we also used Facebook to communicate with the corporation. Using Facebook increased message efficiency, and our cyber fair team also created a line group to report our progress and trade information. These tools benefit our investigation by providing easy accessibility to organizing information and storage for preserving resources. Every technology employed during this investigation improved the communication spend effectiveness.

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

As ambassadors for the project, students collaborated to exchange ideas and do further research. Students also surveyed for statistics to understand the topic and received feedback from others. The results from the survey gave us a better understanding of what to write and ask for in the interview. Students interviewed the association to learn more about space education and why it is important to help students from rural areas. As a spokesperson, our team speaks and acts on behalf of the school and the Cyberfair Club. As a representative of the school and the club, each member devoted our full effort to the interview. During the interview, some students posed questions to the interviewee, while others listened and took notes attentively. One student was in charge of filming the interview, and the others took pictures of the office.

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

The education Due to the lack of confidence in the education of kids from remote areas, the Learn by Space Association promotes and teaches space education for children like this. They teach these kids knowledge about space that they can’t learn in school. They also did a lot of activities to introduce space education to remote areas. These activities make the kids learn by observing and creating space. This allows them to deeply understand the knowledge in it which also allows these kids to build up confidence and interest in space education. There are 4 main goals for the kids to achieve in this activity. For children who explored space education for the first time, they only want the kids to build up confidence and interest in education. For children who attended shortly, they will need to reduce the learning gap. And for medium terms, they have to expand their imagination of the future. Lastly, in the long term, they need to develop together and work together.

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

As a part of the project, we visited Learn by Space and Ms. Lin to further understand space education. We were thankful that the staff allowed us to take videos and photos freely. It was a pleasure to receive details and a deeper understanding of space education while we were interviewing Ms.Lin. With their help, we could have the opportunity to learn more about new ways of education in the world. As students, we have learned about the unique ways of education we have never seen in our school. Once again, we would like to deeply thank Learn by Space for a great opportunity, allowing the team to get in touch with a domain and area we’ve never had the chance to grasp.
