Looking into Faces…

SmilingfacesOne of the things I’m not sure my students totally understand is that The Blurb has gotten visitors from nations around the world, and that the people living in those nations live lives that are much different from our own. 

To help put a face on the nearly 10,000 visitors we’ve had since October, I’ve created this voicethread presentation that includes images of ordinary people from many of the countries that have hit our site.  Each image includes a short narration that gives some basic geographical or historical information about the country and its people.   

I hope you enjoy "seeing" the people who are coming to see us, and I hope you learn something new about another country at the same time….If you’re interested in checking out other cool pictures of places around the world, you should visit Trek Earth, the site that I used to find most of the images in my presentation.

Signed,

Bam Bam Bigelow
