Outsourcing and Globalization

It's unfortunate, but some days I just don't have time to write a decent blog about what we accomplished in class.

Today is another one of those days.

We reviewed some terms: globalization, interdependent, ethnocentrism.  We also looked at positive and negative consequences of globalization.  Now, we're not done studying it, so the list isn't exhaustive.

We watched a short clip on outsourcing, and read about technology shrinking the world.

Your blog points today will come more from your discussion than from the reading.  Discuss what is meant by the phrase, "technology is shrinking the world."  Ask what the biggest technological advancements have been during their lifetime.  Also, discuss how you feel about outsourcing.  Finally, define the three words for the adult you're discussing the blog with.

When you're done, write down three thoughts your parent (or whoever you discussed the blog with) had about technology shrinking the world and outsourcing.  Have them sign the paper as proof that you discussed it with them, then bring it in for extra credit.
