Reflection #4.
Overall
I really enjoyed this class because it made me think more deeply about how I interact with those around me and the perspectives that others have through their lenses of culture. I acknowledge that I have a bias in everything I do, but I also acknowledge other perspectives and values that others bring to the table when we communicate. This is why I am fairly quiet in classes. I really like to hear everyone's opinions and ideas before I add mine. This gives me a chance ...

Relationships
This one was inspired by Nathan's presentation on relationships. Thank you for doing such a great job, Nathan. You made a possibly boring topic into a fun and engaging one. Through my lifetime, I have numerous relationships ranging from close friends to co-workers. I'm thankful that I was able to experience those relationships because they helped me grow as a person, including the negative ones. I might have mentioned in class before that I was bullied quit...

Cultural Conflicts.
I really enjoyed Joey's and Sae Jin's presentation about cultural conflicts. It really helped me understand how to evaluate and plan out communication between different parties with different cultural backgrounds. Through my years of education, there were numerous conflicts that I had to solve, such as group project work. When I am in a conflict, I try to figure out the possible benefits that both parties can obtain and try to work towards a compromis...

Reflection #1.
Social Media
After reading Shannon's great reflection on social media, I was inspired to write a bit about this topic as well. Social media to me is a double-edged sword that can either help or harm us with our usage of it. I do use social media, such as Facebook and Youtube, but in very limited amounts. I do find it ridiculous how people can't seem to use their common sense when making posts on Facebook. In my opinion, when posting something on social media, you should ...

Reflection #4:

I watched a couple of the "Culturally Diverse Learners: Student Interviews" videos because I was interested to know the perspectives of people who have had little or some experience communicating with international students outside of class. The one question I thought was extremely important to address was to ask what kind of challenges native speakers face when interacting with international students in a university classroom. I believe this is important for BOTH inter...

Reflection #4: In Canada, multiculturalism is the defining way in which we describe ourselves as a nation. When I was younger, this was "drilled" into us, and being of a mixed background, I did not see an issue with this concept. Growing up and even more so presently, there are people from multiple countries in Canada. I fail to see the "threat" from immigrants on society, or the tainting of "main stream society." To me, society is always evolving and shifting, the ...Read More

Social Media
Social media is a scary but wonderful thing these days. It is scary because you hear on the new about all of the people taken advantage of or who do horrible things because they are anonymous on the internet. People who in real life would never harm anyone but bully or threaten online. I know mostly how to protect myself online but at the same time I am not as immersed into social media and technology as someone younger than me. Those are the people who are constantl...

I want to share something about social media affecting my life. As the fast development of the Internet as well as the mobile communication technology, people get used to using mass media to communicate with each other. Compared with the traditional communication methods, such as paper-letters and fix-lined telephone, it is much more convenient to use cellphones and computers to keep in touch with others. Furthermore, there have been a variety of social networking APPs, which ...

When it comes to immigration, most of my life I have spent in Canada yet I still see myself as British. The first half of my life was with my family in Britain. We moved around a lot because of my father’s job. I was born in a place called Chester, then we were living in a bungalow for a short time( I do not remember much about the bungalow). Then when my second brother was born we moved to a little village called Barrow, near Chester (it was a really lovely village). After Barrow, ...

Reflection #3: Fons Trompenars hits a very good point with crisis, and why we have “so many of them” which interconnects with the term “juvenoia” which is the fear of social change on youth. Technology has never advanced as much, T.V and video games are the end of childhood, quote “we [being an older generation] had it so much better without.” These anxieties have always been present with up and coming inventions. In fact, there was such an anxiety with “short notes” (in the 1800’s) to which sch...Read More

For my third reflection, I would like to talk about my love and passion which is anime. To begin with, this is about how the Japanese anime culture has become more popular to western societies. For myself, it was something I have known my entire life because I saw shows on TV in my childhood such as Naruto, Zatch Bell, and CardCaptor Sakura. What is interesting about this culture is how it is very much something recognizable throughout life. What Western society considers as cartoo...

WHAT'S YOUR HYPOTHES.IS?
This is an amazing tool for annotating web content, either individually or in groups. Imagine the possibilities. Here is one:
1. Post a link to a news or a blog article.
2. Have students annotate it (look for particular grammatical structure or synonyms, make notes, paraphrase, summarize, or create questions)
3. Review annotations either in class or at home.

WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM!
"In groups decide on eight items you would take with you to a desert island!" This is a classic speaking activity that can benefit from an added online component of sharing final thoughts in comments and justifying own reasons in writing. After class discussion in groups, have each group post their results online in comments along with their rationale. This can turn into a multi-threaded discussion long after the class is over.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
1. Post a visual prompt (upload a photo).
2. Have students list items they see and feelings it evokes (lower level), write sentences about the picture (intermediate level), or write a paragraph about it (upper level).
3. Have students post their work and comment on each others' work.
4. Assign homework. Have them take an interesting photo on the weekend and post it in your class group.
5. In class, have students do a show-and-tell while displaying their ...
