LearnNC is building a collection of multimedia resources and lesson plans that help students understand different cultures around the world.

LEARN NC offers a collection of more than 2,000 high-resolution photographs and audio recordings from Asia and Latin America. All include detailed descriptions or transcripts, and most include historical or cultural context to help you use them in your classroom. We’ve also developed slideshows that incorporate many of these resources, and we’re developing lesson plans around them that encourage higher-order thinking and develop visual literacy.

The media collection can be found at LearnNC.org. I used the search box with the term “World Multimedia” and it took me right to the collection. The collection is here: http://www.learnnc.org/lp/pages/4162.

You can also go directly to multimedia resources or a particular country by going to the Multimedia Collection at LearnNC and then clicking a link in the Tag Cloud : http://www.learnnc.org/multimedia/ (scroll down to see tag cloud)

LearnNC is also developing lesson plans that incorporate this multimedia. Many of the lessons are written for middle or high school but could easily be adapted to elementary. Lesson plan collection is here: http://www.learnnc.org/search?project_ID=20&ed_type=lesson+plan,teacher’s+guide

These are excellent resources for our Global Scholars!
