From still images to narrated videos, this bridge to other countries and cultures allows students the opportunity to see the world and world issues from entirely different perspectives. Curious kids will find it enlightening and interesting to see and hear the stories featured in the gallery. More sensitive children, however, may find cause to worry as they uncover some of the more concerning global issues such as tuberculosis, starvation, and teen pregnancy.

The digital stories are told by students from selected schools around the world, and are generally well-crafted. Many feature striking visuals and exceptional, wise-beyond-their-years insight from their young narrators. Visitors will find an array of emotions throughout the site from heartfelt sadness to abundant hope. Teens and parents who peer into the site will find a wonderful window into the world.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
