ProjectExplorer.org can add another stamp to their virtual passport. The creative team behind ProjectExplorer.org's online global travel adventures has won a 2009 Parents' Choice Gold Award for Outstanding Web Programming.
Founded in 2003, ProjectExplorer.org hosts over 160 free films aimed at cultivating cross-cultural understanding among students.
Used in over 40 countries, by nearly 1,000, 000 people; kids in London, Los Angeles, Lusaka, and everywhere in between, have logged on to become more globally aware. Students can select from three virtual fieldtrip - South Africa, Shakespeare's England, and Jordan - and explore local food, music, culture, and language. Also featured in each series are famous landmarks, prominent artists, and world-leaders.
Don Oldenburg of the Parents' Choice Awards Committee called ProjectExplorer.org, "A cross between the Discovery Channel and the Travel Channel," commenting "this is a fantastic site for students as young as upper elementary school and, those of us well past high school."
