Resources of Research Project
How does the Cyberfair research of
project contribute to education and curriculum of our school?
It has been years that our school introduced video production
course. We envied the seniors when they made their videos. The
school joined the high school quality plan this semester and listed
film production course as one special art course. Jimmy Huang’s
speech let us know more about the work behind the scenes. He also
shared his experiences with us, and arranged visits of studio and
film production company - Taipei Postproduction and the Arrow
Cinematic. We recorded these visits so that teachers can share with
the whole school, to enrich the curriculum.
Is the Internet teaching and
learning more efficient than the traditional way? Our learning?
The biggest difference between Internet teaching and traditional
teaching is the flexibility of time and space. We used Internet a
lot, such as communicating, contacting, and discussing on the
Internet. The teacher had in-depth and one-on-one discussion with
students, not unrestricted by time and space., to best utilize
fragmented time to achieve the task. It was a very efficient
How did we play the role of
"ambassadors" via Internet?
After producer Jimmy Huang’s speech, the teachers contacted him.
Because he got work on hand, we waited until the Chinese New Year to
interview him in Erhlin Township library when he came back to Erhlin.
We asked question via phone or SMS, and emailed him when he was
abroad. Later, he arranged us to visit Taipei Postproduction and
Arrow Cinematic Group to interview important figures.
What is the role of our school at
Erhlin is an important town among the four coastal towns at
southwest of Changhua County (Erhlin, Dacheng, Fangyuan, Chutang)
city. Erhlin Junior High School is the first high school among these
towns, and it was upgraded to a senior high school in 2003. Also, it
is the first senior high school of Changhua County. The Erhlin High
School is a community school with junior high and senior high
Our school has a long-term plan of education and contests with
cultural and local characteristics. Thus, many institutions,
organizations, monuments, or temples are very happy to communicate
and interact with our students, and even provide funding, so we can
have more resources to promote the truth, goodness and beauty of
Erhlin through contests or events.
What IT technology did we use to
complete our research project?
The school and the teachers
provided equipment and technical assistance, so that the eight
members in different classes were able to contact each other to
discuss without the constraints of time and space. In addition,
these devices also helped us record many important images and
conversations, so that we presented the first-hand information
completely in the research project.

Discovery, surprise and learning
In our research process, we had in-depth understanding of the movie
production behind the scenes .
Take the popular film "Cape No. 7" for example. Before this project,
we only remembered the protagonist, Aka, said, “Stay, or I go with
you." Now we can appreciate every detail of the movie. We said
something like: "The shot is so beautiful.” Don’t know how long they
searched for the scene." "The music really fits.” Because all parts
in a movie are closely linked to each other, from concept, sketch,
storyboard, planning, shooting, post-production, to presentation.
Regardless of the box office, movie itself is a work of art.
Members of the evil spirit team are very interested in this area,
and know how to learn more after this project and the challenges in
film industry. "Focus" and "does not claim credit" are two biggest
impressions on behind-the-scenes production staff. Perhaps this is
also the area where we need to improve.
