“We are surrounded by media in the shape of smartphones, video games, social networks and influencers. This technology can become either a blessing or a curse. It all depends on critical thinking.

Educators are highly aware that critical thinking must be taught, fostered and scaffolded. Thus, critical thinking means not only deciding whether what others are communicating is a truth or a fallacy, but also trying to understand our own comprehension of the world.

In this webinar Teachers and student-teachers will learn a theoretical framework and practice pedagogical strategies for making their teaching more engaging and critical. It will invite participants to analyze texts from different genres in varieties of media, such as social networks, blogs and videos both to encourage critical thinking and to become media literate. Besides, considering that Media Literacy is a 21st-century skill to develop as teachers and “teachers to be”, participants will also be invited to produce texts to incorporate this practice in their own classrooms. Finally, through these activities, participants will engage in critical thinking and material development for their diverse level language classrooms.
