Al Picozzi's comment, July 15, 2013 10:21 AM
Look like though it is a return to the original trade routes. Most of the world's trade was in the far east and the Indian Ocean up until about the 17th Century when the "New World" silver and the slave trade exploded in the west.
Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 12:49 PM

I love interactive maps because it gives thorough visuals of areas that don't always stick out.  This map is particularly cool because it's a view of the world's 50 largest ports that are used for international trade.  The ports themselves are massive and it is noticeable that the majority of them are in China and Southeast Asia where many of the world's goods are produced.  The U.S. has 4 ports on the list and while the NY and LA ones are expected, I was surprised to see Savannah as the fourth city. However, upon exploring it with the map, I can see how it is an extremely large port and is probably a main trade hub for the Southern U.S. 

The ports around the world are major contributors to globalization because trade is historically one of the biggest industries that connects countries all over the world through the exchange of raw and manufactured goods and materials.  Cargo ships are massive in size and can carry tons of goods around the world.  I remember going to the naval base in Norfolk and at the port, there were piles of cargo stacked six crates high being loaded onto a ship to be sent to anywhere in the world. Port cities are vitally important to international trade which is a major piece of the world's economy so the enormity of these parts is definitely necessary and really interesting to see in terms of design.

In the literall sense these colonial powers are no more. All theses countries have theire own form of indepenece and many have o officall ties to their mother countries. But what theses mother countries did to many of their colonies was cut them down at the knees where ther would need to continually rely on the mother for help or face damnation. These mother countries make alot of the commercial decsions for their previous colonial states and with that they hold the power to affect the whole nation.

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, March 19, 10:27 AM

This infographic was very interesting.  By using color coding it highlights the areas of influence the colonel powers still maintain over their old possessions.  This map is helpful in understanding how this affects the politics of theses regions today.

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, March 25, 12:59 PM

Colonial ties are still very prevalent due to Europe's dependence upon the resources of Africa. European countries like England and France invest billions in Africa, not to help those African nations, but to build infrastructure for resource extraction or to keep governments stable. Though the true exploitation of Africa has ended, the current situation certainly has the ring of exploitation as the people of Europe enjoy the diamonds and chocolate harvested by the multitudes of impoverished people of Africa.

Kevin Cournoyer's comment, May 1, 2013 12:50 AM
Overcrowding and overpopulation have become of increasingly greater concern over the last decade or two. We as human beings want more things and more space, but there is only so much space in the world in which we live. Cities have proved a viable, if still malignant solution because they allow for people to live in close quarters and still carry on normal, productive lives.
Some cities are more densely populated than others, and this leads to the issue of how much space they take up. This article was interesting because it showed how much room the world’s population would take up if they lived as densely populated as people in six different cities do. In terms of physical space, there were of course large differences between the six. Maybe more interesting was the infographic that showed how much of the earth the world’s population would need to live like the people of nine different countries. Here we can see the correlation between economic prosperity, standards of living and geographic impact. Those with less money and a resulting lower standard of living have adjusted to live with less and therefore physically take up less room than those in more developed countries. If everyone lived like those in more developed countries, we would literally need several more earths for everyone to live within their means constantly.
Magnus Gustafsson's comment, May 2, 2013 2:59 AM
Yes. Keviin. I think the infograph about developed countries are most interesting and useful for my students.
Steven Flis's curator insight, December 17, 2013 2:12 PM

Its been known that Americans have lavish lifestyles compared to outher populous countries. In this article they show a represntation if the entire world lived like (had as much space) americans and it was astoudning. It would take 4 earths to fit the world if everyone had this lavish lifestyle. So we obviously need to change our ways. Cities ae very helpful to sharing this earth. They serve as a main hub so youll only have to ship to a few places. This with the shortening of distances would save tons of gas and othe rescources. But as the article states everyone living in a Main city wouldnt be possible because people need to produce outside the city. So in my opinion for this city world to work it would need to be a few megacities preferably one on each continent and for them to the city be surronded by production methods.

Digitala klassrummet – ett fullskalelabb i världsklass | Lunds universitet

Digitala klassrummet – ett fullskalelabb i världsklass | Lunds universitet | Flipped education | Scoop.it

På torsdag 8 november invigs Lunds universitets nya fullskalelabb – det digitala klassrummet. Det är det största och bäst utrustade i sitt slag i världen och lockar forskare från många länder. Med hjälp av 25 ögonrörelsemätare kan man analysera hur barn lär sig saker och hur de löser olika problem. Forskningen förväntas leda till nya läromedel anpassade efter varje barns förmåga och intresse – en hjälp särskilt för dem som i dag har det svårt i skolan.

Det digitala klassrummet är inrymt i en före detta hörsal på Humanistlaboratoriet i Språk- och Litteraturcentrums källarplan. Forskarna samarbetar sedan tidigare med flera skolor. Många lärare både där och på andra håll är intresserade av att ta hit sina elever och delta i forskningen.

- Vi befinner oss i en brytpunkt i utvecklingen av pedagogiska metoder. Elever kommer framöver att studera mer på elektroniska medier än i pappersböcker. Många av framtidens läsplattor kommer att ha inbyggda ögonrörelsemätare och det är viktigt att vi lär oss utnyttja möjligheterna som erbjuds, säger docent Kenneth Holmqvist, som leder ögonrörelseforskningen i Humanistlaboratoriet.

Docent Jana Holsanova leder en ny grupp på universitetets tvärvetenskapliga Pufendorfinstitutet. Gruppen ska brett utforska hur man med högteknologi i klassrummet kan främja elevers lärande.

- Lunds universitet ligger i framkant inom ögonrörelseforskningen och kopplingen till lärande. Vi har under de senaste tio åren utvecklat en rad metoder och verktyg, för att stödja och utvärdera lärande, läromedel och hur människan interagerar med olika medier. Nu får vi möjlighet att pröva dem i stor skala, säger Jana Holsanova.

Humanistlaboratoriets chef professor Marianne Gullberg är mycket glad för det digitala klassrummet:

- Det öppnar helt nya möjligheter att studera lärandeprocesser och pedagogiska metoder med olika perspektiv.

Hon lyfter fram de nya kontaktytor som skapas i och med ett nytt forskningsprojekt som startar i januari och som får det digitala klassrummet som sitt laboratorium. I projektet ska inlärningsforskare samarbeta med bland annat forskare inom det nya ämnet utbildningsvetenskap. Projektets syfte är att förbättra lärandet i grund- och gymnasieskolan och det finansieras med sex miljoner kronor av Stiftelsen Marcus och Amalia Wallenbergs minnesfond.

Det digitala klassrummet har finansierats av Knut och Alice Wallenbergs stiftelse med en miljon kronor och av LUs tidigare Råd för forskningsinfrastruktur med 1,2 miljoner kronor.
