Its a small world afterall! - globalisation


Term Four collaborative project with M3. Discovering what globalisation is all about and how it affects us...
Also, check out their Kenyan project - very cool to actually make a difference.
:-)
Maybe My Teehan's class might join us, and perhaps the Teaching Sagittarian's new class in Bangkok could be involved? Anyone else keen?
Let's change the world a little bit at a time!

We will work together using blogs and wikis, Edmodo for microblogging and much more

And don't worry Mudpies - we will work out how to mummify chickens in relation to this, i promise!!!

Check out the Movie - The Corporation - and how it got some students interested.

Roo said...

The thing I would like to change about the world would be pollution.

Nei-Nei Neina-Marie said...

I agree with roo. Another thing I would like to change is poverty, prejudice, and rankings. If the world was a republic... no, maybe that wouldn't work. What do you guys think? Royalists or Repuclicans?
Poverty, Prejudice and Rankings are the same things. Poverty is brewing amongst the LOWER-RANKING people, so upper-class are PREJUDICING against them.

I also would LOVE to mumify a chicken. I did a speech on mumification last year - still have the manuscript. Want to read it Mr Woody?
PS, can someone pleeeeease check Me, Myself and I, my main blog?

One thing that I would like to change in the world would be to stop people cutting trees down and plant some more.

Dreamhuntress_Solitaire Angelz said...

Oh, and the picture of that guy comes from the Corporation. com 2.0.

mudpies02 said...

I'm not sure what I would change. How would you change it? How would you make people listen to you? It would be very tricky - people are tricky.

I would like to change manythings in earth. The way we treat people. (I've heard terrible stories in the news about a family getting murdered just cause he was lower class and he voted) I know tragic but prejudice. Politics, Pollution as roo said and Peace (stopping the wars) and getting rid of the bad people for good.

Mr Woody, can we join M3's Wiki?

HamilTRON said...

And I would change Poverty

HamilTRON said...

And do you know how there is an Economic crisis. Well I think that it has been driven by greed.
We've lost over 13% of money.
America 23%!!!

I don't know what I'd change.
If I chose peace and we were all united, who would we be united against? If I chose pollution, would that me we can't have gas (bodily gas)?

P.S. If I chose to save all those unlucky kids in Africa and someone else chose to stop wars. The world would soon become over populated.

Teaching Sagittarian said...

This definitely sounds intriguing Room5ians!

Let me run it by my students and we will leave you some comments.

Awesome,
Thanks for commenting Teaching Sagittarian. We always like people from other countries commenting.

Anyway, I found an awesome explanation of globalization:

Mr woody, I can't comment on the wiki. My name on both Edmodo and Wiki is NeinaOfLeina

rosiegal said...

Same here, Im having the same problem with the small world wiki. And Snowy said that it doesnt work for her either...

Aquagirl said...

Im also having a problem with the small world wiki and i have to agree with all off you in changing the world but the one thing that i want to change is how greedy some people are with money, equipment and houses it drives me insane to heard how greedy some companies are with money, bisness, advertising and being the best

awesomo4000 said...

i would like to change idiotic presidents

awesomo4000 said...

i tried to post some definitions of globalisation but that didnt work so heres one of the 6 'Globalization' is commonly used as a shorthand way of describing the spread and connectedness of production, communication and technologies across the world.

Snowy said...

Yeah its really painfull. I can get on small world or even edmodo. We will just have to do it at school some time i guess.

Candycane said...

Mr. Woody I just watched all of the movies and I think that this is really serious, I'm worried about the future and what it holds. Most adults say that we cannot change the future and we should just go with it, I say different. We should do our best to change this world, it will never be the same so we might as well change it for the better while we can!!!
Sometimes I wonder and think about the future but I never thought in my worst nightmare that is was this bad!!
I would like to live in this world until I die of age!!

Candycane said...

I feel for this earth I will try to do everything for this earth, as much as I can!!
We only have one earth so let us protect it!!!!
I hope if anyone was undecided or unsure if they were going to help this earth or not that I made up their mind.
