What does it look like?

language differences

you cannot tell by looks

colloquial customs - dressed in way that indicates that I am not in local culture, food

slang, talk differences - english is more than 2nd language. Need to celebrate differences (different acronyms in Twitter, social media)

the appearance of the person - facial, colour of skin ???

different customs, games they play

Dress is becoming less and less - spaghetti straps eg but still considerations, headdress

gestures, ways we greet each other, religion

it is okay to still be educated

many students are biracial and are part of many cultures, 3rd culture generation

People slip in and out of their culture: day to day jobs then go to temples adapt the two cultures

What does it sound like?

language differences

accents of different languages

spit a lot in China

traffic sounds

some have at home language, school language and her friend language

What does it feel like?


want to be part of another group or culture

What does it smell like?

Why bridge cultural differences

race thing may not be an issue in the future as they become more multi racial

it helps people understand each other and supports peace in the world

How can we bridge cultural differences?

celebrate different cultural days - listening to other cultural differences

expose them to other cultures


virtual exchange projects

provide experiences that expose students to different cultures including skype, google hangouts where they can talk with each other

collaborate in different ways, doing projects, discussing matters, sharing ideas

global memes

Other challenges to global projects

time zones


technology access
