How did your activities and research for this International
Schools Cyber Fair project support content standards, required
coursework and curriculum requirements?
Through the Cyber Fair, we learn to practice, self-questioning,
exploration and innovation. We break out of the classroom,
and learn from the real-life environment and experiences and
from various experts in history and culture. Through this
research project, we have learnt how to search for information,
how to conduct an interview, how to organize information.
These abilities will become our life-long assets. Although
due to the busy study, we had to do the work at noon break
time and weekends and sometimes we were very tired, we have
a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.

what ways did your students act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons
for your International Schools Cyber Fair project both on-line
and in person.
We consider it our responsibility to make the public understanding
Tibetan traditions, thus we should play the role of 'community
ambassadors' and reveal this history to others. Our interviewee-Wande
Cairang is the relative of our translation teacher, who told
him the sense of participating in the Cyber Fair. Wande's
family is 12km away from our campus and we team members walk
to his house in Nov 6. After returning, we realize our research
result in the form of signboards, as well as a homepage hosted
by the school website. Apart from being a resource for countryside
education, the homepage also allows citizens to deepen their
understanding of the local history through the Internet. The
website we make is believed to make more people know about
has been or will be the impact of your project on your community?
Through this research project, we have come to know more about
Tibetan tradition and culture. We are fully confident that
our work, when finished, would be the most exhaustive online
resource on Tibetan culture in Gui'de County at the moment.
In the process of research, we find that many Tibetan traditions
have disappeared with the development of society. Many electronic
objects appear in Tibetan family, which is a symbol of social
development and also a shock to Tibetan culture. Many young
Tibetans think that their traditional food is less delicious
than Han people's diet. Therefore, protection of cultural
assets has become the most concerned issue in the past decade.
We hope that our project would not only deepen the public's
knowledge, but also arouse their recognition and passion for
cultural assets. We all have a kind of passion and confidence
unique to ourselves. Through this project, we have established
good interaction with the community. Our actions are full
of passion, and we behave with full confidence.

Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
We have got a better knowledge of Tibetan tradition and culture.
The activity has enhanced our teamwork spirit and improved
our communicating and interpersonal abilities. In our research,
we found that seniors would like to keep traditions, while
youths like to pursue fashion. Many Tibetan traditional tools
are abandoned. We feel quite pity not to take pictures of
