Dear Fellows and Friends:
After five years of service to the APEC member economies with the
annual online contest, it is now time for APEC Cyber Academy (ACA)
to move forward with new programs and services.
First of all, we will embrace a larger international learning
community. We will open our arms to the global K-12 education
community instead of collaborating with APEC member economies only.
We will work with teachers and professionals around the world and provide rich online learning programs designed
for, and based on, PBL and collaborative learning strategies, especially
focusing on games for learning. We will provide our services throughout the year, instead of
just hosting a 9-week online contest program. Please come take a look and find out
about our new programs in the “Learning Space” on the web site.
We have just finished a complete redesign of the annual international online contest programs.
To provide better service, we not only moved the contest period from Winter to Spring, but also
vastly improved the quality of our programs.
Facilitating and sustaining a versatile and vibrant international
online learning community is the key goal of APEC Cyber Academy and
goes beyond the online programs and services. In addition, APEC
Cyber Academy will host an annual awards gala and conference in
Taiwan so that participants of the annual online contest can meet
face-to-face. We will cover the travel expenses for invited foreign
participants to join the event.
For details of the upcoming ACA 2008 International Online Contest,
please read on and come explore our new programs and services!!
