    To make that bridge into the classroom discussion and to make it relevant to students, I use the news as a platform to discuss key issues. For example we talk about democracy with elections, we use natural catastrophes such as hurricanes, volcanos to talk about development, disasters and climate change. Also, food is now a critical global issue, after decades of improvements globally hunger is now increasing and one in eight people don’t have enough to eat. By bringing the world to the classroom, students are motivated to search, think and suggest solutions for the world problems. Using Prezi presentation not only to present facts and information but also to create an action plan to find reasonable solutions to many global issues.
