Seen By Me Video Series
Cultural Jambalaya’s new distribution partnership with ProjectExplorer 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 has created a new online channel on its website to showcase the new series, which will reach millions of students without charge. 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 will be a key source of distribution by using the hashtag #SeenByMe.
The series will feature fascinating global cultures, history, religions, traditions and rituals from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia. Dozens of newly produced episodes are in the works. Completed episodes in the series include the 4-part mini-series on World Heritage Sites:
