Seen By Me Video Series

Cultural Jambalaya’s new distribution partnership with ProjectExplorer/EXPLR Media brings the world into the classroom with free multimedia content and lesson plans that improve students’ global awareness and cross-cultural understanding. The new collaboration rebrands Cultural Jambalaya’s current video series as Seen By Me, designed for students 7-13 years old, a critical age when young people are forming a broader understanding of the world.

ProjectExplorer/EXPLR Media has created a new online channel to showcase the new series, which has already reached hundreds of thousands of students without charge.

Each Seen By Me episode has closed captioning in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Arabic and French with additional languages to come. The new series also includes curricula at three academic levels that adhere to National Curriculum Standards or Common Core Standards.

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.  Social media is a key source of distribution by using the hashtag #SeenByMe.

The national award-winning series features fascinating global cultures, histories, religions, traditions and rituals from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia. Seen By Me episodes include a 4-part mini-series on World Heritage Sites, Religion & Spirituality and Customs & Rituals.
