The Information Blog should consist of the following:

  1. SCALED-MAP of the course of Singapore River from Coleman Bridge (New Bridge Road) to Anderson Bridge (Asian Civilisation Museum).
    • The map should have the identified historical buildings/ landmarks marked.
  2. Adequate information on the "Change and Continuity" in the river system/ river profile and ancient civilisation. This would be illustrated through your journey
    • along Singapore River, from Coleman Bridge to Anderson Bridge
    • at the Asian Civilisations Museum
    • Your documentation and findings in the blog should include the following:
      1. Based on your observation along the Singapore River and inferences, explain the activities that are carried out along the river during the early days and present days
      2. Using photographic evidences, do you think the shape course of Singapore River will change in the future? Justify your answers.
      3. Based on your findings in the Asian Civilisations Museum,
        1. identify one civilisation that you would discuss how people in the civilisation deal with their constraints and how their responses contribue to the social, cultural and technological changes that occured in Asia
        2. Select THREE artefacts to learn how they had evolved to today's modern version.
  3. To help you present the information, you should...
    • take pictures of relevant locations/ landmarks/ view/ artefacts and use them as part of your illustration on the blog
    • take video clips as part of the illustration (e.g. activities happening)
  4. Include appropriate and useful hyperlinks where appropriate (e.g. to learn more about a specific landmark).
  5. As your trail covers a selected region along the Singapore River, it would be appropriate to include visual representation like a GoogleMap embedded in the blog to provide an overview of the areas you have visited.
    • Insert appropriate photographs/ video clips/ captions would be useful.
  6. Organise the information in a manner that is user-friendly.
    1. Navigation should be easy.
    2. Apart from the standard posts that you could put up in the blog, you may also make use of the "Pages" feature in the blog where you could include up to 10 individual pages for some "exclusive" reports of your trail/visit.
On top of the above, create a Page in the blog where you discuss between 150 to 200 words your group's experience in accomplishing this task. It should include the following:

  • What we enjoyed most when working on this task
  • What were some challenges we faced? 
    • This could be difficulities faced during the trail/visit; you could also talk about the group working dynamics of the group or any encounters
  • Describe ONE area that you think your group could do better if given an opportunity to do it again.
