Duration   1h

Media literacy is a critical skill in today’s world. One way educators can help to foster an understanding of the importance of media literacy is through an examination of the Holocaust. In Echoes & Reflections' new online activities for students, Explore the Past, Shape the Future, they invite students to identify the importance of media literacy today through an examination of the impact of Nazi propaganda. This student activity is accessed through USC Shoah Foundation’s IWitness platform, allowing educators to assign activities to students, track progress, and assess learning via provided rubrics. Students are also able to interact and share their learning with teacher and classmates. Prior to attending this webinar, they recommend that you create an IWitness account to enhance your experience during the presentation.
