Broadening World Views of Students
Providing educators with free, creative multimedia resources to address the critical need for global education in our schools
New Seen By Me video series will reach millions of students
Cultural Jambalaya is partnering with ProjectExplorer to bring new, free cultural educational resources to millions of students. The collaboration provides classrooms with multimedia content and lesson plans that improve students’ global awareness and cross-cultural understanding. The new video series, called Seen By Me, is showcased on ProjectExplorer’s online channel.
Seen By Me features cultures, history, religions, traditions and rituals from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia. Produced by Hi-Fly’n Productions’ Kevin May and ProjectExplorer’s Zoe D’Amato, Seen By Me is crafted for younger students ages 7-13, a critical age when young people are forming a broader understanding of the world.
Dozens of newly produced episodes are in the works. Click here for more info.
Share photos and stories at #SeenByMe
Seen By Me also serves as a creative interactive strategy for students to share their own photos and stories as they learn about the world beyond their borders.
Kids can explore different places and perspectives, share art and stories, and interact with the global community through photography.
Students are encouraged to document their own observations on social media, using the hashtag #SeenByMe. And with ProjectExplorer’s current audience of nearly 6 million students, they’re in for an exciting, engaging and eye-opening online adventure!
