It's interesting to see the statistics of a whole population boiled down into an imaginary and more approachable community. It was a creative idea and I think it makes the facts of the population easier to understand.
Emily Larsson's comment, September 10, 2013 8:02 PM
I didn't realize how small Australia was compared to India and China. Its amazing when you really think about how society is changing. In the video is said that the average household is getting older by the decade. I have seen a break down like this before of the entire world, where is was only 100 people. Sometime people don't realize that the rest of the world is entirely different that the place that they live.

An interesting look and different cultures

Samuel Yeats's curator insight, May 8, 2013 12:40 AM

Q1) How does this slideshow depict the differing socioeconomic situations of countries around the world? (Use the example of at least 2 countries)

Q2) Do you think that the image of an Australian weekly diet is accurate to your own family and why?

Love it. Thanks for this Seth. Just in time to promote Geography at parent/teacher night!
Samuel Yeats's curator insight, May 8, 2013 12:34 AM

A facetious look into the world of studying Geography. These students have obviously gone to a masive effort to explore their passion for Geography. While it may not be a stereotypically academic or intellectual piece, this video is a great representation of how a Geographer thinks broadly, critically and evaluatively.

Carmen Martinez's curator insight, August 26, 2014 12:17 PM

A good article for the Australian Communities unit. I like how play highlights that very little people meet the average criteria.
