General Session: Cultivating Empathy in Students at the Intersection of Testimony and Technology

Sierra Ballroom (lobby level)

This presentation will provide participants with a demonstration of USCShoah Foundation's Interactive Biography from its “Dimensions in Testimony” program. Attendees will “meet” and interact with a survivor of a Holocaust concentration camp via the Foundation’s Interactive biographies, which are interactive educational tools that permit visitors to have "virtual conversations" with survivors of genocide about their life experiences.

"Dimensions in Testimony", incorporates interview content recorded with advanced filming techniques, next-generation natural language processing, and specialized display technologies to deliver an interacting learning experience that invites students to drive their own exploration of the past and consider its impact on the present. As a result, students develop knowledge, communication and critical thinking skills, and empathy -- all of which are important for active citizenship.

This presentation will inform a discussion about how technology and story can bring students new ways of learning history, building empathy, and developing critical thinking and literacy skills.


10:30 am - 12:20 pm
