Free webinar for teachers Grades 6–12

Wednesday, May 5, 2021
3:30–4:30 p.m. PT

What will future generations see when they look at images of 2020–2021... life in a pandemic, an uprising, a country in healing and hopeful? Young people around the country have never been more inspired to pick up their cameras and phones and document the world around them. In this webinar, we will introduce Getty Unshuttered, a multi-faceted youth-focused educational resource that explores photographs as a medium for self-expression and understanding others. Unshuttered includes how-to-style videos on core photography skills, an app-based community for student photo sharing, and related lesson plans for educators. We'll share the many ways you can incorporate photographs into your classroom practices.

This webinar is geared for middle and high school teachers (Grades 6-12) teaching in English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Visual Arts classrooms, though other teachers are welcome and may also find the resources useful.
