AIED’s Own “World Culture Kid”

As Mother’s Day was only days before this post was made, it is even more essential. From all of us at AIED Council, thank you, moms.

Through our social media outreach, we stumble upon many great blogs, organizations, and people who share commonalities with AIED Council’s own goals and mission. We sometimes try to find ways to collaborate with these likeminded people and organizations. The Mama Similes blog was the most recent connection that agreed to collaborate with us for a post.

This blog’s focus is parenting and the joys of having children. MaryAnne, who runs the blog, shares many tips and activities for creative outlets that parents and their kids can share and enjoy.

For AIED Council, we saw that the blog hosted a “World Culture for Kids” feature section. This special section is aimed at “teaching world culture and increasing global awareness.” As we are attempting to also bridge cultural divides here at AIED, we thought that this would be a natural collaborative outlet.

MaryAnne agreed to post one of our student’s lovely stories of her educational exchange in the US. You can read Xiangying’s post here: http://mamasmiles.com/world-culture-for-kids-from-china-to-new-york/.

Check out more posts from the Mama Similes, especially in the “World Culture for Kids” section. We hope that this will not be the last collaboration between our organization and this great parenting blog.
