Do we live in a global world? Lets act like that

Hi class:

Today I’m going to write a more personal. We have heard thousands of times that we live in a global world. What does it mean? Sometimes I feel that the people in the US don’t go and see what it is happening around the world, how other people are dealing with their problems, and how they are trying to find a solution. I sometimes feel that here, globalization is showing how things are solved here, but without taking a feedback. Of course, this is my personal opinion and you are more than welcome to let me know if you agree or disagree with me. 
While looking for an article for this week’s blog, I find something that I liked related to cursive writing, if it is worth teaching it, and I was ready to tell you about the pros and cons on teaching cursive writing.

Then I found this website, it is called “e-learning Europe” ( and I found very useful articles and videos there, like this one:
Sticky Concepts on E-learning from UNU-ViE on Vimeo.
I think we should open our minds and explore how other people are solving or dealing with their education problems, maybe we have the same problems; maybe they have a good solution or a better approach. We are living in a global world, let’s take advantage. Enjoy the video!

  1. Hi Heidy,

    I really agree with your post about Americans needing to be more aware of the global world around us. It seems like most people born in the U.S. never get the chance to live abroad and experience what it's like to live in another culture with different views on common problems and how to solve them. In fact, many Americans don't even travel abroad to get even the smallest taste of global views or ideas. There are many great solutions to all types of issues that have been tried and tested the world over. We could learn so much from others' successes and failures if we just opened up our world perspective!
