Simulation Two, day one
Started the second simulation in World Politics this morning. Just like last year, I asked the students to use digital video to make their presentations; unlike last year, the technical difficulties were avoided and all three of the presenting groups had short films ready to go. It's always fascinating to see what students will do with a blank video canvas and the city of Washington as a backdrop; I was impressed by the creativity that they displayed and how funny the films were while still managing to get the point across; Pakistan used skits, the EU had an informative message delivered in front of various embassies (and a running joke about how none of the embassies were the embassies of EU countries), and Japan showed images of Japanese products as part of their campaign to encourage more free trade in manufactured goods. Can't wait to see what the other three student teams have come up with on Friday.
