Globalization and Geography
Unit 1 Summative Assessment - Madison Allan
Analyzing this further, globalization creates jobs for many people. These people work hard and long hours to only get paid 20 cents an hour. They are trying to survive in this world and it is affecting their lives a lot. Geography also comes into play. These people need a dense population so they can work and where they live depends on how much money they have.
How does Globalization and Geography affect where, how and why people live where they do?
There are many different definitions to this one word. A definition to summarize it all is Globalization is a process driven by international trade that helps countries technologically, economically, environmentally and culturally.

Problems created by my product
Technological: Machines can be big technological problem in factories. In class, we heard a story about a machine falling through the roof and taking many peoples life. Or another problem could be a machine failing and messing up the system.
Cultural: Cultural diversity can be a problem. As you can tell, a lot of Americans (kids) don't do slave labor as much as other countries do. Almost four million people in other countries work many hours and don't get paid a lot.
Economical: Money is one of the biggest and most important things in the world. Money can be problems in businesses. It can make them flourish or bankrupt. People who work hard hours for making our stuff should get paid more than what they do right now.
Solution to Technological Problem?

Globalization in my life in 6 words
Globalization/Geography influence my everyday life.
This is my relationship with globalization. See down below to see how it relates to me
How does Globalization relate to ME?
Globalization affects everyone and especially me. Everything I wear, everything I have, is a result of globalization. Things like phones, clothes, etc. Every object is made by a pair of hands and gets transported around the world. This is how I get all the luxuries I have.
In 15 years, globalization can change immensely. Similar to the "Sight" video we watched, globalization can actually produce things like that. Technology can become a HUGE thing in schools and change the way people learn and teach.
