This week's theme is collaboration.
Our teacher, Birte Kjær Peulicke, introduced to us some great websites where teachers and students can find collaboration partners abroad. We also made an outline for a collaboration project which you can read about on my collaboration page.

While thinking more about collaboration I went on Youtube and found a wonderful TED Talk by Howard Reingold, which really is a 'must see' video on collaboration.

Copied from TED Talk:
Howard Rheingold talks about the coming world of collaboration, participatory media and collective action -- and how Wikipedia is really an outgrowth of our natural human instinct to work as a group.

This week's theme is innovation.
I love innovating as it is a fun and challenging process to be a part of.

In 2011 I took an innovation course called Kunstgreb. I worked on two innovation projects at two firms and had great success. The innovation process takes time and there are many important factors to keep in mind. The fun part is to see how an idea becomes reality!

I created a website regarding my work with innovation which you can view here:

This video is controversial but non the less important.

This week's theme is tolerance. 

We had a great class with teacher, Marcus Baslev. His focus was on being empathetic and open minded. Among other things we learned a great activity called "the web".
The foreign exchange students in the class had to write one word on a piece of paper that explained what they noticed was different in Denmark compared to their home country. Us Danes had to write what we thought would be the most different thing to notice about another country. Read more about this exercise and other thoughts and assignments on my Tolerance page.

Who are we?
The question is regarding our individual identities... An important question especially when focusing on globalization and multicultural education.

I lived in New York City for 7 years from 2002-2009. The first 3 years I lived at International House, a dorm that houses 700 graduate students from around the globe.
A yearly tradition was the Fall Fiesta. Many students dressed up in local costumes from their respective countries. This was a fun and interesting way to see how different and similar we all were.
There is a great openness at I -House and my memories of living there are filled with appreciation for all the knowledge I gained from meeting so many people from around the world. I became a "Cultural Hour" assistant and helped create some wonderful cultural events with fellow students. My global perspective was definitely broadened from living in New York City and especially from my 3 years living at I -House!

Globalisation, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing… you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn’t affect two-thirds of the people of the world.
Source: Jimmy Carter Quotes & Speeches

Here is definitely something to think about...
Let us hope that we, as future teacher's, may inspire our young generation to include the other two thirds of the people in the world!

This week's theme is identity.

We did several fun activities in class today. One of them was to make up a story from pictures we were given. Each of us were to tell our part of the story. In our native languageJ
