Project Overview
Funded by the Quality Education Fund of the Hong Kong Education Bureau and carried out by the Hong Kong Confucius Institute of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The project aims to develop the first online interactive map of China-foreign exchanges along the Silk Road for secondary school education. Using animals as a focus, the project integrates the four aspects of time, space, images and history, and visualizes these aspects to tell the story of the Silk Road in ancient times, making history more interesting and accessible. In this talk, project team members from the Polytechnic University will share how to understand the ancient Silk Road and China-foreign exchanges from the perspective of animals and people.
