Your next task is TO CREATE A FACTSHEET OF SOME REPRESENTATIVE LANDMARKS IN YOUR REGION.
Why a factsheet?
In a company, business or organization, you may have to present information in a shorter document which still contains all relevant information. This is when a fact sheet or a fact sheet template may be very useful. A fact sheet (which can also be referred to as a factsheet, one-sheet, white paper, or information sheet), is a short, concise presentation of relevant information. You can easily make a fact sheet template in Microsoft Word as long as you make use of a format which highlights the most important points of the presentation briefly.
Reasons for Using Fact Sheets (Source: http://templatelab.com/)
What to do
STEP 1 - Choose 3 representative ladmarks in your region
STEP 2 - Create a one-page digital Presentation Factsheet for EACH of the 3 landmarks
STEP 3 - Upload the factsheets in the Materials/Files section in the folder assigned to your country (e.g. Romanian students will upload the sheets in the Romanian Landmarks folder) naming it like this: COUNTRY_LANDMARK NAME_STUDENT NAME
Tips for Making Fact Sheets
Here are some helpful tips to guide you:
- Facts are important but don’t add in too many of them. When you do research, you will most likely find a wealth of facts, information and statistics which you would want to add into your fact sheet. Restrain yourself, however, as you won’t be able to fit all those data on a single sheet.
- When searching for facts and statistics, use different sources. Sticking to just one source won’t be ideal as you don’t know how accurate that source is, especially if you’ve just searched for it online. There are a lot of resources on the internet so take a few and see which facts they have in common.
- A lot of facts and statistics are often random and lacking structure. You would have to find out which of these facts are the most accurate and present them in such a way that they are structured and they flow well in your fact sheet.
- Try reading comments and reviews of your sources so that you have input on how reliable your sources are. It would be very bad for you to present facts which don’t actually hold any truth.
- Since you will be getting facts from different sources, include those sources in your document to prevent any copyright issues.
- Before you present your facts, make sure to trim them down and order them so that they appear in your document logically. The very first fact on your sheet should speak about the significance of the issue you are dealing with.
- Aside from logic, you have to make sure that all your facts are relevant. Facts and statistics are great but if they are not relevant, they have no place in your fact sheet. Make sure you only include facts which are related to the key points of focus in your fact sheet to add to the significance of your document.
- You can also include comparisons in your fact sheet, as long as they are related to your issues or to your main topics.
If you’re new at making fact sheets, you can go ahead and look at some examples online and use them as references so you don’t miss out on anything important:
MORE IDEAS ABOUT THE FACTSHEET TEMPLATE
The Presentation Factsheet should contain a representative picture of the specific landmark and structured information: name, location, description, etc.
It can be constructed using headings, bullet points and even tables all summarized on a single page. Fact sheets typically include information about the ladmark but they may also include technical data, statistical results, educational material, informative answers to common queries and helpful advice, depending on the ladmark you choose.
