ProjectExplorer.org’s Online Adventures are broken down by chapter. Each chapter features a travel blog containing encyclopedia-style definitions for important people, places, and concepts. On the right side of each travel blog you will find one or more media buttons. These contain videos, photos, and audio selections. Our student-focused mini-documentaries and multimedia materials provide access to world-renowned artists, leaders, and experts.
Listen Up! Some “Sound” Advice: Many of the people we interview work in museums and are accustomed to speaking softly. Some speak with accents that may be unfamiliar to your students. We recommend that learners listen to video and audio clips with headphones to experience the best sound quality. In some cases, we provide open captioning to help students become familiar with different accents.
Patience is a Virtue. ProjectExplorer.org’s video clips have been designed for quick download and playback. Should you experience delays or pauses while playing our videos, simply press the “pause” button. By waiting just a few minutes, your video will be ready for the highest quality playback. Typically, delays or pauses are a result of heavy web traffic - a sure sign that in using ProjectExplorer.org you are in good company!
Video Content and Young Viewers. Some of the subjects in ProjectExplorer.org’s South Africa series deal with historical events of a sensitive nature. ProjectExplorer.org’s aim is to provide students with an experience that is as close to first-hand as possible. As such, we have incorporated archival news footage and photography to provide students with a more realistic factual view of these events.
It is recommended that educators and parents review materials prior to classroom/home use, especially if you are unfamiliar with any of the themes, events, or topics covered in our programs. Video segments with sensitive images have a brief disclaimer at their beginning, though we do recommend reviewing the blogs and interviews so that you are familiar with the content.
Suggested Lesson Plans and Topics for Discussion: In addition to the film and multimedia content we produce, the Educator/Parent portion of our website contains dozens of suggested Lesson Plans, Topics For Discussion, and Supplemental Handouts. Like our programming, all of these materials are provided free-of-charge. To access this portion of the website, you must be a registered user.
