Cultural Jambalaya’s new video series, Seen By Me, is now available. The 12-part series provides classrooms with multimedia content and lesson plans that improve students’ global awareness and cross-cultural understanding.

Seen By Me features cultures, histories, religions, traditions and rituals from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia. Produced by Kevin May and 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.

In addition, each Seen By Me episode has closed captioning in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Arabic and French with additional languages to come.

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.
