Global Oneness Project Launches Free Multimedia Platform for Educators

Bring the world to your classroom with multimedia stories and lesson plans

INVERNESS, Calif., Feb. 5, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — The  Global Oneness Project, an award-winning online multimedia platform, whose collection of stories have been featured in The New York Times, the Smithsonian and National Geographic, has launched a new multimedia educational initiative featuring digital stories with accompanying powerful lesson plans. Aimed at K-12, college, and educational technology institutions, all materials are being offered for free, and are aligned to National and Common Core standards.

Bring the world to your classroom with free multimedia resources from the Global Oneness Project.

The interdisciplinary stories — in the form of short documentary films, photo essays, and articles — examine global themes with a humanistic lens. The lesson plans facilitate critical thinking, reflective writing, and in-class activities designed for use in the arts, environmental sciences, English, history courses, and more. "In the hands of educators, these stories can take on a new life, offering rich and dynamic learning experiences," adds Cleary Vaughan-Lee, Education Director of Global Oneness Project.  

Featured stories and lessons include:

  • Yukon Kings – A short documentary, which exhibited at the Smithsonian, follows a Yup'ik fisherman in Alaska whose way of life is threatened by environmental and cultural forces.
  • Mongolia's Nomads – Photographer Taylor Weidman captures the present-day life of Mongolian pastoral herders. The lesson plan explores the concept of cultural sustainability.
  • Vanishing Island Lesson – This documentary, which premiered on The New York Times Op-Docsexplores the changes taking place on a tiny island deep in the bayous of Southern Louisiana.
  • Marie's Dictionary – Featured on National Geographic, this film tells the story of Marie Wilcox, the last fluent speaker of the Wukchumni language, and a dictionary she created to keep her language alive.

Each month, Global Oneness Project will release a free, new digital story with an accompanying 60-minute lesson plan. To learn more about the platform, please visit www.globalonenessproject.org, and @goproject on Twitter.
