CultureGrams and The World
Do you often wonder how our culture may influence the world we live in today? CultureGrams can help answer this question and others.
Through the use of CultureGrams students can learn about land, climate, government, economy, health, education, customs, courtesies or lifestyles.
With the recent earthquakes and presidential tours CultureGrams can provide students a current study of both land and economy. The overall disaster can lead to a more in-depth class discussion on future impact.
CultureGrams provides students with article (text), photos, video, slideshows and interviews. The text can be read aloud or can be downloaded as an MP3 directly to iTunes. The photos and video provide a visual and auditory representation of surroundings and culture for a more succinct interpretation.
CultureGrams also provides some additional tools whereby students can learn about common foods (recipes), world time, distance calculator and currency converter based on the search.
Next time you are discussing a current event in the world consider CultureGrams to learn more and deepen your class discussions. If you have questions regarding CultureGrams or any of the Online Resources, email Kathleen Goslinga, Media Assistant.
