Kiva Reflection

Week of March 2, 2009
Now that we are well into the second semester, some students have experienced partial repayment of their loans. They logged in to Kiva to check up on their entrepreneurs and then were asked to respond to the questions below.
  1. How has your participation in Kiva changed the way you think about your own life?
  2. Who else benefitted from the study besides you?
  3. Do you plan on participating in KIVA in the future? Why or why not?
  4. What does it mean to be a responsible global citizen?
  5. What can we do to make the world a better place?
  6. Is life fair? Give examples of why you think as you do.
  7. Are humans interdependent on one another? Think about your science food webs and the interconnectedness of life on Ring Mountain. Do those laws apply to the world?
  8. Think about all the different parts of our study. What parts stand out for you and why?
