Globalization, Trade, and Poverty

What is globalization? Is globalization a good thing or not. Well, I have an answer that may not surprise you: It's complicated. This week, Jacob and Adriene will argue that globalization is, in aggregate, good. Free trade and globalization tend to provide an overall benefit, and raises average incomes across the globe. The downside is that it isn't good for every individual in the system. In some countries, manufacturing jobs move to places where labor costs are lower. And some countries that receive the influx of jobs aren't prepared to deal with it, from a regulatory standpoint.

There are many of the 35 videos in the Economics crash course set that touch on geographic issues, but I’d like to highlight episodes 16 and 17 especially.  Many see globalization as the path to economic growth and others see the process of globalization as what has created poverty.  In many ways both have a point as demonstrated in the 16th episode of this crash course.  In a follow-up video, they explain the difference between wealthy inequality and income inequality.  This video also has a nice layman's explanation of the GINI coefficient and how it measures inequality.

Different Approaches To Using Student Blogs And Digital Portfolios | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Don’t let fear or indecision around student blogs freeze you into inaction. Worrying too much about whether you’re ‘doing it right’ can lead to not doing it at all.  At any level, student blogs provide benefits. Embrace them.

Viviana Echeverry's curator insight, November 13, 11:22 PM
At this time, blogging assists students to become more ICT literate which is a crucial 21st century skill. Through blogging, we’re able to incidentally discuss many ICT skills such as keyboard shortcuts, Creative Commons, researching online and troubleshooting. Creating a class blog requires teamwork and collaboration. Students and teachers learn and share together. A real sense of classroom community can be developed through blogging and establishing a class identity Also, with this we can create an authentic audience, In the traditional classroom, the only audience of student work was the teacher and sometimes classmates and parents. Blogs provide a much larger audience for student work and an opportunity for feedback and self-improvement through commenting. I have found that students really take pride in the work that goes on the blog and want to do their best for their impending audience. In fact, is important to take into a consideration that the use of a blog increased motivation for writing, all students are happy to write and complete aspects of the post topic. Many will add to it in their own time. As well, improved the reading skill. Blogging is a great technique to introduce the technology into the classroom. Additionally, there are so many online tools out there which have more assessment when you can implant them in a blog. Blogging can provide a really different learning stage and while it takes a lot of work.

Native American Heritage Month | NCAI

Native American Heritage Month | NCAI | digital divide information | Scoop.it
November is Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly refered to, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month. The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:
Protecting and enhancing tribal sovereignty depends on a joint effort between tribal nations and non-tribal allies and advocates. NCAI envisions an America where tribal leaders stand alongside non-Native college students, and where Native youth stand with civil rights leaders, to take large and small steps to advocate for a brighter future for Indian Country and our entire nation. Whether it is contacting US government leadership to raise awareness on key issues, educating yourself or others on Native histories, traditions or cultures, working within Indian Country, or lending your support to an organization that represents tribes at the local, state, or national level, Indian Country values every effort and action. Even seemingly small efforts can have a tremendous impact.

Jenny's curator insight, November 13, 4:37 PM
In his explanation regardng how to construct a better place for our students in order to improve education, Dr. Scott McLeod highlights the importance of 4 fundamental factors in order to stablish a better environment for learners. These aspects are the following: 

-The shift from low-level recall and regurgitation to deeper learning, 
-The shift from teacher-directed to greater student agency, 
-The shift from isolated-disconnected classroom work to more real-world authentic work, 
-Using technology in robust ways to facilitate those first three.

According to what this author expresses, we as teachers need to change a lot of practices that are taking place in schools. There are still traditional traits that constrain the exploration of more innovative practices. For sure, there should be a change in terms of methodology and focus since learners deserve now a contextualization of what they will learn, a better students directed center in which they become in the central part of the schools. With this, it is also intended that learners become aware of their learning process so that they will be more independent and autonomous learners. 
Additionally, students will improve different aspects (emotionally and cognitively) since the tasks they will develop will be more demanding and will enable them to explore in a deep view.

Singapore passport becomes 'most powerful' in the world

Singapore passport becomes 'most powerful' in the world | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Historically, the top ten most powerful passports in the world were mostly European, with Germany having the lead for the past two years. Since early 2017, Singapore has tied for number one position with Germany. For the first time ever an Asian country has the most powerful passport in the world. It is a testament of Singapore's inclusive diplomatic relations and effective foreign policy."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 6, 2:23 PM
The objective is that good teachers create an environment where each student's learning can emerge. I don't think that means they don't teach. Gert Biesta uses John Dewey in his writing argues that teaching is relational. Having a strong grasp of content, being able to deliver it, caring for one's students, etc. each go into creating the environment where learning can emerge.

Improving teacher's efficiency 
Margaret Annen's curator insight, October 22, 5:03 PM
"Great Teachers Don't Teach" really sums it up with the idea that real teaching doesn't take place until the student does on their own.  This article relates to my project because I believe one way teachers can learn how to let go is for them to be in the same situation as they need to let their students be and that is be left to do.  The only issue perhaps is educators may go through and experience doing, but giving up the control is hard because day in and day out you have been doing the doing. I believe learning how to let go must be accomplished by learning how to let go.  Educators must plan a lesson and say include one or two steps of letting go.  Then they must build on it, so that day after day they themselves feel comfortable with letting go.  Managing a classroom of students who must do specific things on their own looks and feels different because the students are engaged to the point that they do not want to be interrupted rather they are feverishly and committed to learning.
