In an earlier article, Amiel, Squires and Orey (2009) described four strategies for handling the inherent cultural content of learning objects or open-educational resources. In this paper, we use images from educational materials and discuss how the four strategies might have found a better way of implementing the content. In addition, we examine each image from a US, Brazilian and Mexican perspective.
