On-Demand Webinar: Using The Times’ Visual Media To Engage Students


In addition to articles, The New York Times offers photographs, illustrations, graphics, videos and virtual reality films accessible to learners of all skill levels. Every school day, The Learning Network uses this rich collection of visuals to create new educational resources that help educators bring the world to their classrooms.

In this webinar, The Learning Network editors discuss the following ways to use The Times visual media:

  • Discover new perspectives and explore the world through virtual reality documentaries.

  • Develop your literacy skills, encourage discussion, and encourage creativity using our image-based picture prompts.

  • Activate critical thinking and practice data analysis by participating in our weekly “What’s Going On In This Graph?” »Discussions.

  • Strengthen your reading skills up close by joining our regular “What’s in this Picture?” »Activity.

CTLE credit is available for educators in New York. All participants will receive a certificate of completion.
