Ending Evaluation

For this past Term in I.t, my class has been working on a project about Global Issues. The first step before even starting the project was to talk about the Design Cycle on our blogger. I realized that you needed to accomplish all 5 parts of the Design Cycle because if any of the 5 are missing, the project would not of been completed. The 5 steps are;
  • Investigation- You research about your topic.
  • Plan- You plan about what you are going to do in the Design and Create Stage
  • Design- You design what you are going to make in the create stage.
  • Create- You create your brochure.
  • Evaluate- It is like a Conclusion, you evaluate how good and how bad you do things.
I first made my iWeb and I added many picture of war to advertise that we need to stop conflict. I also added a lot of information and many popular questions that many students in my class liked an answer to. Once done my iWeb I went on to making my brochure. This brochure only took one lesson because I basically put all my information from my iWeb into my brochure. If I ever did this project again I would of like to improve on my iWeb because I did not have enough time to correct all my spelling and gramar.

Today (31.05.09) I accomplished to finish my brochure and ext lesson I will be starting my evaluation.

Conflict Resolution is the methods and process of negotiation, arbitration ( a form of alternative dispute resolution), and institution building which promote the peaceful ending of social conflict and war.
Conflict resolution is important because a lot of conflict is happening around the world and if we did not have any type of resolution to this problem, everyone would be dead in a matter of a year. By having conflict resolution , the world everyday is getting a little bit closer to a peaceful world.
Conflict resolution is needed because many people have had ENOUGH of fighting around the world and peoples lives being crushed for no reason. What really annoys me is that presidents around the world are STILL sending troops to Iraq and other places in the middle east for war. I think that if presidents stopped sending troops, that the war would slowly stop.
If the world did not have conflict resolution, everything would be mad. !! No one would have resources to look out for.
Peace Keeping is as defined by the United Nations, is "a way to help countries torn by conflict create conditions for sustainable peace.
We can help stop conflict by advertising on the internet, in newspaper on sign on the street and many more. Protesting is something that could be dangerous but sometimes it does help stop certain global issues.
Things tat have helped to stop conflict would be , Negotiation, Community Buildings Activism, Advocacy, Counseling, Mediation and Critical Pedagogy.
Many people are effected by conflict including children, adults, elderly, troops, soldier and many more. Even new born baby get effected by this crucial case.
