Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 27, 2013 9:56 PM
I really liked this map because it's easy to read and is interactive. This would work really well on the SmartBoard because it's easily accessible for both the students and teacher. This resource could be adapted into a lesson where the students must choose either a red or burgundy country and complete a research project on why these countries have such high levels of hunger. You could also do group presentations on their findings so the whole class gets an overall view of developing countries. The great thing about this map is that it's very basic and can be used in younger grade levels without adjustment.

“ Yesterday Portugal announced it was increasing the country’s minimum wage to €505/month. How does that compare to other countries in Europe? We’ve used The Economist’s Big Mac index to calculate how many Big Macs can be purchased in an hour on the minimum wage in various countries*.”

Chris Plummer's curator insight, November 17, 2014 12:47 AM

Summary- This article review India's population policies and what they do. Even though the population growth has declined from 2.3% to 1.6% in the past 40 years, no government population policies have worked. India's population is expected to be 1.5 billion by 2030 surpassing China. India as chosen female sterilization as an attempt to slow down the population. The article states India has chosen female sterilization over teaching them about pills and contraceptives because it is cheaper. As a result, India has one of the highest sterilization rates in the world. Due to their poor health, 14 out of every 20 women die after getting these operations. As a result of this and female abortions, India's population has become very imbalanced.

 

Insight- The study of population and it's composition is a big concept in Unit 2. In this case, we are dealing with the population composition of India and its gender imbalanced society. We know now that India's population is becoming very male heavy. This brings up the question, will India's population become so male dominated, there won't be any more babies? Obviously this won't happen for a while because it is suppose to become the most populated country by 2030, but will this be its peak of population?

What impacts may this have on the UK population? 

Tom Gilbert's comment, September 29, 2013 4:48 PM
On analysising this data exclusively, it should put Britain into natural decrease because you have an increasingly ageing- population as a result of the removal of the compulsory retirement age, flexible work patterns and much improved healthcare. Then, in contrast, you have a decreasing young population as a result of improved education on large families and most people's inability to support a lot of children financially. However I think this will only be temporary, as the next generation of young people from the massive boom in in-migration form a decade ago are coming of an age to have children but many have kept their traditions of large families (or as a result of their faith). Finally, as a resul of the bulge cycle we can expect people of my generation to begin to start having children.

Tom Gilbert's comment, October 13, 2013 8:35 AM
I would disagree about a debate being emotional. The point of a debate is not to win the hearts of people by saying 'think how they feel, the difficulties they go through' but to win the minds and intellectual support of people instead. I would go so far to say that this isn't an opinion but more an underlying rule of debating. For this reason I would have to support the person arguing that migration is good, up to a point where it then harms an area, even though I am not sure they even got close to knuckling down on actual factors, examples or exceptions.

How the world’s populations are changing, in one map

How the world’s populations are changing, in one map | Human geography case studies | Scoop.it

It's often said that demographics are destiny. While the futures of nations are guided by much more than population trends, these demographic forces can play an awfully significant role. Countries need to grow in order to stay healthy and successful,

All of that makes the above map really important for how we think about the trajectories of nations and of the world. It shows current trends in population growth, based on data from a new United Nations Population Fund report.

showing how our world is changing with population

Max Minard's curator insight, March 22, 2015 11:37 PM

As one can see from the map, it shows  the current average annual rate of population change in every country. Most areas experience only 1%-2%  increase in population over the years. Although, certain areas in eastern Europe, Russia, and Cuba are currently experiencing a decline in population. Many countries in Africa are even experiencing up to a #5 increase in population, possibly due to the fact that women produce more offspring more rapidly in these areas to ensure that some will live to older ages. This can further summarize economic stances and women equality issues within that certain country.This map helps determine estimated populations for countries in the future and can lead to further conclusions on other topics concerning geography.
