Mind Map: Intercultural Communication

  • Erin,
    Nice job! I noticed right away that your first split leads you to two possible ways to go at this option: Human connection (“youth connecting with youth”) or problem solving (“awareness or change of issues”). Both have elements of hearing different perspectives, learning about other cultures, and having meaningful conversations. But one focuses on individual connection, while the other focuses on broader problem solving. I think that if you are trying to focus your topic, choosing one of these angles to look at it would be a good way to go. Your mind map does often blend the two, and you could cover both small and large scales in your project. But I wonder, which is more important to you? What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to help kids have a better understanding of other cultures and have new connections, or do you want to use those connections to create some kind of change?
    Good luck on your next post!

  • Erin,
    Your mind map is great! I love how clear it is to understand! One thing that I noticed was how there are many benefits to intercultural communication. Is there any disadvantages to it? I also agree with what Greta said there are two main parts about your issue. Connecting kids from different parts of the world, and talking about the bigger issues facing our world with youth. Do you think you are going to peruse the big over arching topic? Or one of the smaller sub topics? Like I mention in earlier comments I think your topic is fascinating and can’t wait to hear more about it. I was wondering what inspired you to peruse this topic?
    Can’t wait to read more!
