Densho Executive Director Tom Ikeda will conduct the seminar "Conducting Oral Histories for Educational Use Online" at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. This seminar is for individuals who are interested in how oral history interviews are captured and adapted for educational purposes from a website. Oral histories offer a valuable way to preserve and document the memories of individuals. They are also useful for creating innovative educational materials. This seminar will demonstrate how digital technology is a powerful tool in conducting interviews and making them readily available over the internet. The seminar is free for registered attendees. Seating is limited, so RSVP early to: events@densho.org .

Tom Ikeda will discuss how Densho selects an interviewee, prepares for each interview, and then conducts and video records the interview. He will explain the post-interview processing of a recorded interview through the web publishing of the complete video oral history with transcript. For examples, Tom will use interviews recently conducted in Los Angeles with Japanese American women. Tom will then demonstrate how interview materials are used in real-world teaching materials such as videos, websites, classroom activities, books, and multimedia presentations. Funding for the interviews and seminar was provided by a grant from the California State Library through the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program.
