Esta semana, Lucía nos envía el artículo que ha realizado en Ciencias Sociales con su profesora Juana y que ha escrito íntegramente en inglés, pues es el idioma en el que ella y sus compañeros estudian esta asignatura.
Globalization is the process of integration across world-space arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas, and other aspects of culture.
Advances in transportation and telecommunications infrastructure, including the rise of the telegraph and its posterity the Internet, are major factors in globalization, generating further interdependence of economic and cultural activities.
Surely, if different children around the world had to do this project, more than half of them would coincide with me in this definition because of this browser.
Google is one of the greatest expressions of globalization, because it represents it, develops it and increases it.
Its use is free, it aims to provide information to the whole world and it’s an egalitarian company. Moreover, it promotes the expansion of culture.
Google reaches almost everyone in the world.
Unfortunately, in some developing countries, the technological development has made the technological gap increases because people who live in those places can not access to this great invention.
Through google, governments and big multinational companies can manipulate us and make us listen to the same music, buy the same things and products, follow the same trends…
Through google we can virtually travel to museums and landscapes anywhere in the world without being physically there and we can also communicate with someone thousands of kilometers away.
Google feeds back globalization.
For example, if through google you buy a shirt from zara, favoring the purchase through internet, you also favor the enrichment of large multinational companies and as a result the increase of globalization and the gradual disappearance of small businesses and traditional craft shops without sufficient resources to be released, which represent diversity.
