Webinar: Media Options for Sharing Out Your Oral Histories

Online Webinar
Monday, April 24, 2017  |  3:30 – 4:10pm PST

What’s the best type of media for your oral history project? The third webinar from the VOW Education Program will explore the various types of digital and traditional media used for oral history projects and help you find the best fit for your community.

The webinar will feature guests from the field sharing firsthand knowledge of different forms of storytelling media. Matt Colley, a teacher from Oakland Technical High School, will take us behind the scenes of the website he created for students to share their written interviews. A director from Making Waves, an educational youth radio initiative, will offer an inside look into the basics of creating podcasts from oral histories.

Participants will also learn about VOW-inspired projects in other forms of media, including a theatrical adaptation of the VOW book Voices from the Storm: The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and its Aftermath, and a multimedia storytelling and photography project based on Throwing Stones at the Moon: Colombians Displaced by Violence, created in collaboration with the Magnum Foundation.

This webinar is part of the Listen Up webinar series offered through the Voice of Witness Education Program. Listen Up brings together classroom and community educators from around the world to share resources for teaching oral history and stimulate dialogue around oral history ethics and practices in educational settings.
