◆Description of local features
Nankang is located in the
southeast of the Taipe Basin, south bank of downstream Keelung River ,
and north of the Nankang Hill. It is called Nankang, the south harbor in
Chinese, because the bay-shaped border between Nankang and Shihjyr forms a
nature harbor and because it is located in the south of the Keeling Rive.
Besides the Nankang Software Park which is a very potential area to the public, the Academia Sinica which
brings the sense of culture and academics is located in the district. The
Hu Shih Park in the district is not only adjacent to the JZES, Hu Shih was
also the promoter of the school. Consequently, we were motivated to conduct
an in-depth investigation of this great philosopher in modern China.
of the topic research
the Hu Shih Park there are the Hu Shih Mausoleum, the Dong Zuo-bin
Mausoleum, the Wu Ta-you Monument, and old staff of the Academia Sinica. Though
there are mausoleums of many great figures in the intellectual history of China, they
are unlike conventional mausoleums of such kind. In fact, they are humble
and simplistic, giving us a quiet and elegant feeling. More importantly,
they are friendly to approach.
◎In addition to drawing up a guide for visiting the park attractions
in terms of a trail to facilitate people to visit the park, we have visited
the Hu Shih Memorial Hall, the Museum of the Institute of History and
Philology, the Wu Ta-you Memorial Hall in the Academia Sinica to understand
more about life and stories of these great philosophers, scholars and
scientists in order to bring something spiritual to visitors on their visit
to the park for leisur.
The school website is linked to the Taipe City Education Network Center via a 100MB fiber optic circuit. We worked at the computer classroom of the
school every noon when we were at school. Our work included data editing,
webpage design and drawing. Also, we stored image and text records in the Miss
Time was pressing and lack of prior knowledge
Though the idea of participating in the contest grew in
September, the planning and research work did not started until November. Miss
Liang made the duty assignment very quickly. As all team members were in
the same class, it was convenient to contact one another. However, all
personages in the project are great and important. As their names are
familiar to everybody but people may not know their life and events, Miss
Liang asked us to collect information as of these figures in different
aspects and to make everything easy to understand.
★We met at the computer classroom
at lunchtime and the integrated activity time to finish most part of our
work. Before the interviews, Miss Liang asked us to prepare the questions
for the interviews, make the thank you cards with 非常好色,
and the members responsible for the interviews to prepare the profile of
the figures. Of course, it took us a long time to write down the schedule
on the web. Though the work was hard, we learned a lot from that and found
it very interesting.
Never learned how to design a webpage
learned how to operate the PhotoImpact in the beginning, and we have never
learned how to design a webpage. Fortunately, one of us know how to draw
pictures with the software. The three sketches on the homepage were made by
him. Miss Liang asked him to take charge of the art design and the rest of
us to prepare the texts. Then, Miss Liang showed us how to produce a
webpage with the Namo before assigning the duty to us. We discovered that
as far as everything is ready, it will not be difficult to design a
★Miss Liang teaches us computer and natural
science. Therefore, she has helped us solved so many computer operation problems.
How lucky we are!
Lack of experience in creating text files
The writing section was the mist difficult part of the
project. Miss Liang kept asking us to write, and we were burning candles at
both ends. Even worse, we needed to cite out all the sources for this time.
Therefore, we needed to make reference to articles we have collected and to
transcribe the interview recordings into text. It was very difficult. We
admired so much people who could write good articles.
★Miss Liang asked us to
pay attention to every tale and story we have read and heard, and to
indicate them in special colors in order to arouse the visitor’s interest
this project, we discovered that there are so many great people, things and
events are related to out daily life. These great philosophers, scholars
and scientists had great lives that earned our respect. After every interview,
the interviewees must encourage us to learn from these great figures. There
are so many touching stories about the Hu Shih Park which is adjacent to
our school. This makes us feel very proud and special. I believe that we
will value and cherish all these and will work harder and harder in our
