5 Global Cities of the Future

5 Global Cities of the Future | current teaching topics | Scoop.it

Look to these five emerging startup hubs for opportunities to launch or expand internationally, so your reach can finally match your ambitions.  Here, we present five global alternatives to traditional hotbeds of startup creation and growth. Each city offers unique advantages to American entrepreneurs, and each is a regional--or even global--hub in its own right. Some are great places to launch a business or expand into new markets. Others offer access to expertise or technologies that may not yet be available in the U.S. Many are home to some of the world's best workers, as well as to partners who will help you scale.

Some children on the autism spectrum lack an interest in teamwork, as they'd rather do things themselves in the way they want to. For this reason, it's important to show them-and other kids, not only those with special needs-why it's good to work as a team when with others.

 

Ways to do this include having them do activities in which it is easier to work as a team than an individual. Another way is to reward them for working together and providing reasons why teamwork is necessary.
