Illustrate how this project research plan corresponds to the targets and aims of ¡§Taiwan School Cyberfair¡¨ ¡G

¡§In Taiwan We Stand; at the World We Look; about the Universe We Are Concerned¡¨ is Nine-Year Integrated Curriculum's ideal. If we want to stand in Taiwan , the most important thing is to understand and care about persons, places, and events surrounding our growing up. The reason we chose ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ as our topic lied on: most ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ belonged to the groups of the weak. Unless having a contact with ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨, people do not understand their historical background, thinking and life habits. We hope to make people more understand ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ this special family through this project research.

Taking part in the contest sponsored by ¡§Taiwan School Cyberfair¡¨ benefited us greatly: parts of Nine-Year Integrated Curriculum's ¡§Learning Areas¡¨ showed up one after another as we made this project research.

(a)On the Field of Mathematics ¡G

we applied logical thinking to questionnaire designing, used statistical charts to present the outcomes of investigation, made arrangements and analyses of data, and finally proposed our views and feelings.

(b) On the Field of Social Studies ¡G

The objects we had made interviews included ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ and their dependents and next generation of different backgrounds. They differed from our classmates whom we used to get alone with ordinarily. It broadened our horizon, and enhanced our ability on research of social investigation. All of these were the experiences that could never be learned in class.

(c)On the Field of Language Arts ¡G

We copied reporters' style of profiling persons or events, and worked up the interviews into papers in place of the usual Q&A forms. It not only increased the paper's readability but also improved our ability of word expression after certain trainings. This will help a lot on the composition of Basic Competence Test two year later. Sweat now will become fruits then.

(d)On the Field of Science and Technology ¡G

During the process of research, we wielded products of modern technological science, such as digital cameras, voice pens, personal computers, scanners, and broadband networks. We also learned and knew how to use the software of web pages designing, and finished our paper by coordinating interviews on the spot and questionnaires. Contacting and sending notices by E-mails and utilizing the network to transmit the arranged data are much better than the traditional ways. Besides, what is great is that our ability of web pages designing was strengthened insidiously that would be of great help to the lifelong study in the future.

(e)On the Field of Arts and Humanities ¡G

During the process of turning research achievements into webpage presentations, the teachers and parents spent a lot of time teaching us many skills, such as art designing by computers, page layouts, color management, and image manipulation, that would be very helpful to us.

(f)On the Field of Integrative Activities ¡G

In order to make interviews, the teachers directed us how to plan and design. Especially, we would set up a database for various objects, in case there would be a blank in the process of interviews. Questionnaire designing was also the product of team members' brain storming, within that we deeply realized the reasons why ¡§Two heads are better than one.¡¨ After making arrangement totally, the teachers distributed the assignment according to personal specialities and interests, and set a deadline. We typed and dealt the data after that.

When taking a look at Nine-Year Integrated Curriculum before, we only knew it had 5 curriculum rationales, 10 curriculum goals, 7 learning areas, and 10 core competences. But after joining this webpage contest, we found rationales, spirit, and goals of Nine-Year Integrated Curriculum all appeared in our research, that could never be experienced in class. What a wonderful and memorial experience of learning.


Explain What Technological Science We Used to Accomplish Our Project Research Plan.

Equipment used Research Methods
Interviews on the Spot

W e interviewed ¡§Honorary Soldiers,¡¨ their dependents and next generation of different backgrounds personally.


We designed two questionnaires, and the objects investigated were our classmates in school.

Digital Cameras

We used digital cameras to take photos, photograph, and put the process of interviews on record.

Voice Pens

As going outside for interviews, we used the video pens to record conversations anytime, facilitating the arrangement and recognition of materials afterward.

Desktop & Notebook

We utilized computers for paper writing, webpage designing, communication and file transmitting.


We looked for related web pages on internet to replenish our project with more data.

We communicated and discussed with net friends through discuss zone on internet.
Magazines & Newspapers

We searched for related data to enrich our project's content.


We used scanners to deal with the collected images for image manipulation.


We used printers to print data for passing round for perusal and interchanging ideas.

Telephones & E-mails We used telephones and E-mails to make contact with the interviewed objects.
We used telephones and E-mails to keep in contact among the members of the webpage designing squad.

Explain how students who participate in this project research plan play a role of Ambassador through online, personal, and team contact ¡G

In the street stalls, ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ has another name: ¡§Old Taros.¡¨ Most common people's impression of ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ is: old-aged external provincials with a heavy accent and a special family in which people live distinctively and most of them are unmarried or married with women much younger than themselves. However, how many people do understand the poignancy they had for leaving home, the hardships they suffered for earning a living after just coming to Taiwan, and the nostalgia they bore for leaving home for over 50 years? How did they settled down and took root on this land?

In order to solve these questions, we decided to take the forms of personal interviews to realize the real life of ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ instead of searching for data by internet or quoting coverage on newspapers and magazines. The objects that we interviewed included ¡§Honorary Soldiers,¡¨ their dependents and the next generation. With our project, we would like to take the role of Ambassador to introduce this first-handed interview to everyone, hoping to let more people realize ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨, this special family, and make people living on this treasure island more harmoniously because of understanding.


The Influence and Impact that Participating in This Project Research Plan Brings to Us ¡G

In this project research, We had a lot of new experiences: listen to ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ grandfathers talking about different personal stories and experiences of joining the army, fighting in a battle, reuniting with the old wives after 50 years' separation, dwelling beside the tombs or the dead, earning a living by picking up junk, undergoing nostalgia for leaving home for almost 50 years. These various experiences made a great impact on us: War was cruel, bring humans nothing but pains. We did no hope to meet any war forever!

To cultivate our self-independent ability, all teachers would not join the interviews, forcing us to initiate the interviews with flushing and stammering, but end up with ease and volubility. Our team members all felt ourselves growing up a lot suddenly during this period. That's so-called ¡§Experience is the mother of wisdom.¡¨


Findings, Lessons and Surprise

(a)Findings ¡G We supposed that we had learned a lot on computer lessons before, but after experiencing this Web pages designing, we found, ¡§Well, there's still much to be improved.¡¨
(b)Lessons ¡G After listening to ¡§Honorary Soldiers¡¨ grandfathers' experiences, it felt that war's cruelty instigated hatred among people, and it brought humans nothing but pains! The lessons we got was: Only Peace, No War.
(c)Surprise ¡G Both profiles by interviews and questionnaires on campus made us grow up from shyness and unfamiliarity to natural and graceful manner. What a surprise this project brought to us: ¡§We seemed to grow up unexpectedly!¡¨
