REVOLUTIONIZE how your students learn about the World via ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT.

Our aim is to help teachers, students, librarians,and local communities of learning make better use of, and produce their own quality micro-media in collaboration with distant schools and libraries though our ICE (Interactive Cultural Explorations) Program that enables teachers and learners to participate in classes, workshops and video tele-conferences online with peers around the globe as they focus on the use of micro-media as research, social media and digital authoring tools.

During Black History Month 2014, we will provide North American schools and libraries with customized webcasts direct from Egypt, Kenya, Palestine, Ireland and Ghana. This will allow learners to engage African school communities in custom designed projects to increase cross cultural understanding, appreciation and collaboration. We are currently working with 3 high schools in the Plymouth-Canton (MI) Educational Park. Students, librarians and teachers have already enrolled in ICE and are producing their first sets of videos for sharing with Egypt, Kenya and Palestine starting September 2013 when the first on-line media training will occur.

ICE also offers families the opportunity to connect with distant relatives identified through DNA testing followed by actual on-line meetings with them.

W TUT Program "Teachers (and librarians) Using Technology" is an African Memory Project activity for faculty and staff wanting to electronically connect with Africa using OnLine Africa's digital platforms and custom developed apps. We are seeking groups of teachers and librarians who want to develop innovative applications and content for the planned OnLine Africa "Multipedia", a collection of digital learning sets created by educators and learners to enrich and deepen the audio-visual and multimedia content of major Black history learning resources and databases like BlackPast.com, Awesome Stories, Afripedia, Atlapedia, Schomburg, and African Memory.

LEARN Why and How you can benefit from the African Memory Project.

We are seeking to identify a core group of educators and librarians to work with us as we develop diverse stories and fresh perspectives on Black History Month 2014 themes. Our "lesson plan illuminators" permit teachers and learners to help create and present customized course materials and create participatory learning experiences that comply with and enhance district-wide learning objectives and outcomes.

We have been approached by several publishers of multimedia books who are looking to acquire here-to-fore unpublished materials that visually chronicle the global liberation movements of people of African descent. This content will be packaged according to the needs expressed by teachers who want to provide their students with more engaging and diverse activities and critical insight while learning social sciences, history, ethnography, geography, music and the humanities.
