Taiwan SchoolNet Director, Yue Chane Hsing, tells about the CyberFair "miracle."

Global SchoolNet, in cooperation with the government of Kaohsiung city in Taiwan and the Ministry of Education of Taiwan, hosted a global project-based learning forum and International Schools CyberFair Affiliates meeting in Kaohsiung city, Taiwan. The purpose of this forum was to increase opportunities for global project-based learning and to share successful CyberFair implementation models from different countries. Attendees included education and business leaders from Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Poland, and the USA. We call upon people around the world to join us in observing Global Friendship Through Education on November 11, 2004 and every day, week, and month thereafter -- with appropriate ceremonies and activities!

International Schools CyberFair, now in its twelfth year, is an award-winning, authentic learning program used by schools and youth organizations around the world. Students conduct research about their local communities and then publish their findings on the World Wide Web. Recognition is given to schools for the best projects in each of eight categories: local leaders, businesses, community organizations, historical landmarks, environment, music, art, and local specialties.

This White House endorsed program encourages youth to become ambassadors for their own local communities by working collaboratively with community members and using technology tools to publish a Web site that displays what they have learned. The annual contest has involved more than one million students from 4,500 schools across 100 countries—and is considered the longest running international education cyber-event of its kind.

Competition judging also takes place online. Students evaluate each others projects by using a Web-based evaluation tool designed by Global SchoolNet. The top forty entries are reviewed by international judges, to determine the winners. Winners of International Schools CyberFair are announced each Spring at a event that is global in itself, with hundreds of schools participating via Internet.
