A Digital Empowerment Workshop for 8th - 12th Grades

Offering virtual workshops to students across the country, contact our regional offices: Los Angeles (310-772-2801), New York (212-697-1180) and Chicago (312-981-0105)

The Museum of Tolerance (MOT)’s new dynamic, classroom-based workshop engages students in critical thinking for decoding and rejecting online hate. This is an online safety curriculum aligned with ISTE digital citizenship standards and based on foundational media literacy skills. Students will apply Center for Media Literacy’s 5 key questions to diverse real life examples compiled by the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC)’s Research Department. They are challenged to interpret the hateful messages and their impact. The workshop ends using an action planning worksheet which all students take home for ongoing use.

The workshop is 50 minutes and is delivered in your classroom by one of our trained facilitators.

The MOT is a recognized provider of anti-bias and critical thinking education in Los Angeles. Drawing from the Museum’s exhibits such as “Digital” and “Assuming Responsibility” the workshop is interactive and engages youth in determining their own solutions. The workshop provides an opportunity to begin and maintain critical conversations between adults and students regarding online safety and speaking up against hate.

Ask us about free PD for educators interested in learning the workshop and access to free educational resources.
