With historical memorials in the news and neo-Nazis on the march, this community-based challenge inspired my University of Portland students to use a PBL approach to explore instructional design with purpose. We teamed with Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education (OJMCHE) to design guided tour of Holocaust Memorial using WordPress and storytelling tools from KnightLabs.
My MAT social studies class met with April Slabosheski, the OJMHE Education Manager at both the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Memorial (located in Portland Oregon’s Washington Park).
We ultimately decided to use a WordPress site – Oregon Holocaust Memorial to host the resources.
