Our project: Multi-Culti BreadGoalOur goal with this project is to increase cultural awareness through the simple act of sharing pictures andinformation related to bread from across the globe. Why have we chosen this project? Bread can take manyforms and the majority of us across the globe have in common the act of eating daily some form of bread.Cultural awareness is "the foundation of communication and it involves the ability of standing back fromourselves and becoming aware of our cultural values, beliefs and perceptions. Why do we do things in thatway? How do we see the world? Why do we react in that particular way?"(http://www.culturosity.com/articles/whatisculturalawareness.htm)Implementation1. Facebook community page: We created a facebook community page: https://www.facebook.com/multicultibread.2. Raising awareness: We raised awareness about the fb page through both facebook, twitter, and other social media.3. Immersion events: We hosted two “Virtual Bread Breaking” immersion events in Second Life and invited people to come and meet others from across the world.ValueThe idea of the project to create a dynamic facebook page that can be used by school classes across theglobe to discuss similarities and differences between their own culture and others as a means to raisecultural awareness.
