Learning from summer TV
I loved the Magellan advertisement screened so frequently during the summer of cricket on TV. It showed the global linkages of the modern world – the bloke heading out to a Japanese restaurant, checking his Australian shares on his Korean made phone and then having a Dutch beer…
It would be a great ‘hook’ to introduce Year 9 students to the idea of economic interaction between countries.
Maybe the beer/bar scene is not perfect for high school kids – so I found a longer (2 min 30 sec) video on the WTO website that is just as good – ‘Trade matters to me’
