The concept for Visual Blogging evolved from Hird’s Maiden Voyages Project. Her students both at Saint Michael’s and abroad engage in cross-cultural communication by creating sequential drawings based on their own stories.  These visual narratives are shared, eliminating the need for a common  language. The pilot program at Saint Michael’s College in 2009, in collaboration with Dr. Rula Quawas at University of Jordan, allowed students in the US and Jordan to interact in real time by exchanging their visual stories over the internet.
