Contemporary Issues through Videoconferencing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Contemporary technology applications such as videoconferencing, interactive field trips, and social networking promote dialogue with students, educators and experts from around the world. In order to expose students to contemporary issues on the local, national and global levels, the Contemporary Issues though Videoconferencing program is designed to challenge students and to provide them with an in-depth understanding of the world’s history and present-day events. It is also designed to aid students in an understanding of globalization and its problems and of the growing interdependence among people and nations today. Students examine the geography, governments, history, economics, and cultures of the major regions of the world. Students should be active in their own learning and this course allows students to design their own learning experiences, all of which concentrates on developing verbal communication, critical thinking, writing skills, historical concepts, and discipline needed for future academic courses, as well as for making informed decisions regarding complex issues that face the world in the 21st century.
