Seminar week 9 reflection blog
In this week’s seminar our class mates presented their presentation to the class. Their topic was “Globalization”.
We were asked to carry out a debate. The class was divided into two groups, one group for the other agents. I was on the side for pros.
The examples we gave were:
– Globalization pros
– Mass trading globally allows for a larger and more diver selection of food to perches.
– Stogner dater has been collected that reflects on global warming
– Raises awareness for global warming
– Stringer communication created by the media allows for us to connect to people around the world
– We have a stronger understanding of other people’s economic and financial state.
– People feel More cultured
They showed us a few videos that I found extremely helpful as it elaborated on how the media effects Globalization. They then went on to further explain how globalization effects, politics and our communication with one and other.
We also participated in a quiz that the group had mad for us to do. This was fun as it really challenged our knowledge and even increased our understandings on globalization
For example, I wasn’t aware of the term “Anti-Globalization” as we hadn’t discussed it nor focused on it within the lecture in the morning. The quiz also tested us on how much we had been interested and engaged with the presentation.
I enjoyed that the quiz highlighted information and terminology that I was unaware of before I walked into the seminar.
After the group had finished their presentation we had a general discussion before moving on to watch a documentary. This documentary showed the shocking living environment that families are living in, in India. The Documentary showed us how these families have adapted to what is happening to the land they live in. Young women were shown burning the insides of a computer to gather the small remains and leftovers of gold/copper/silver within the wires. This was poisoning the air the young women were breathing in and therefor making them extremely ill over a long period of time.
This week’s seminar helped me increate my understandings on the effect that globalization has on cultures, depending on their location. It also allowed me to discuss my understandings in this topic and gather a clear number of examples of the pros and cons crated by globalization.
