  1. We would like the ability to log into Office 365 on Culturegrams and directly save to One Drive.

    We use Office 365 for our platform, and it would be nice to login to Culturegrams and directly save information to our one drive.

  2. Search for countries by language

    As a teacher librarian, I promote CultureGrams to the world language teachers at my school. They often want students to do research on countries or people from countries where their target language is spoken. It would be very helpful for students to be able to search by language spoken. I think they would be surprised to see all the countries where French or Spanish is spoken.

  3. Newsfeed

    Have you considered putting a newsfeed on your site that would keep students informed of current events around the world?

  4. Charts & Graphs downloadable in other formats

    I do a lot of teacher trainings on how to use CultureGrams in the classroom. The teachers are very excited about having the ability to have their students create comparison charts and graphs. However, sharing their creations out is problematic. Would it be possible to add a feature so that charts and graphs could be downloadable in formats such as jpeg and png? CultureGrams is a statewide resources for our K-12 students, so I know this feature would be useful for many teachers and students in Iowa. Also, it would be helpful to have curriculum correlation with the Iowa Core…

  6. Mexican States edition

    It would be great if you had a Mexican States edition, similar to the U.S. States and Canadian Provinces editions you already offer especially since the three countries are more closely linked today.

  7. Highlight text with read aloud and more images in each section, make it more visually appealing

    The text should be highlighted as it reads along, More images for each topic, make it more palatable for younger and struggling readers (ENL, ELL, etc.)

  8. Holidays and Celebrations around the World

    It would be nice to have a section on holidays and celebrations around the world, and maybe even sorted out by month. This way they would be easy to compare instead of going country by country

  9. Languages other than English

    Have you considered making Culture Grams available in other languages (particularly Spanish?) There are some World Language teachers at my school who prefer their students to do research in the languages they're learning.

  10. Make a topic filter for countries

    A feature where you can filter topics when searching for countries (ex: Religion, Art, Economy, History, etc.) This would make it easier to find articles about countries and to find specific articles about certain topics about that country.

  11. Regional info

    Please add more information on all regions, since that is the primary way in which we teach world geography. We don’t have time to get down to the country level, except to use as examples.

    We are in the process of updating our economics portion of the reports. The planned changes should address the suggestion proposed here.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts about how to improve CultureGrams.

  14. We would like the ability to import citations to Noodletools.

    Noodletools has a direct import to all Gale products. It is a nice feature and very helpful.

  15. States and Provinces photo galleries

    It seems like you should have photo galleries for all of your editions, not just World and Kids. Students would like to be able to see photos of their state.
