Our world has become a global civilization that is no

longer separated by oceans, distance, and time. In a

matter of seconds a person can connect in real-time

with someone on the opposite side of the world.

Colleagues can connect via Skype and instantly

share findings, information, and suggestions while

in different countries. Social media outlets such

as Twitter, chat rooms, and Facebook allow for

individuals as well as businesses from every part of the

world to come together in one common community

for communication and sharing. It is because of the

technological changes, advances, and conveniences

that it is more important now than ever that people

are educated in cultural diversity, customs, and a basic

knowledge of places outside of their home region,

state, and country. A well-rounded education in

international topics has become a necessity.
