IWitness Pilot Project in Italy
From November 18-20, 2012, the USC Shoah Foundation and the Italian Ministry of Education organized an educational pilot program in Abano Terme, Italy. Teachers and students from high schools across the country attended the workshop to explore usability and feasibility of IWitness, the Foundation's internet resource for teachers and students, in the Italian education context. The workshop objectives were twofold: teachers focused on developing their ability to run the classroom pilots, whereas students tested their skills on working with the platform. During the sessions, students utilized IWitness to develop video projects that explored their understanding of the Holocaust and how it connects to their own lives.
