Global Communication and ICTs! Outdoor Quiz

Global communication refers to exchange of ideas through verbal and non verbal means across international borders. It is a process that breeds globalization.
Global communication is an ICT-driven process used to connect, share, relate and mobilize across geographic, political, economic, social and cultural divides.
At the root of this process is the global media. Such global channels such as CNN, Al Jazeera, and the internet platforms aid this process.

Recall that in class we discussed how global communication is the livewire of globalization. Now we are to do a simple exercise. Compile a list of global media outfits that are at the heart of the process of globalization.
