Beta Tool: IWitness

Oct 17, 2012

BETA IWITNESS is an excellent example of how to merge web2.0 technology with academic research and resources. The site provides a searchable collection of 1000+ video testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses from the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s archive. IWitness also equips secondary teachers and students with the educational tools and contextual resources necessary to deepen students’ understanding of the Holocaust. The resources page alone is a must-have for any history teacher looking to explain the Holocaust in a meaningful and accurate manner.
