Drobeta Turnu Severin, Romania
The aim of this workshop is to connect teachers from various countries to extend their understanding of media literacy and critical thinking with a focus on global skills, and to provide them with practical ideas they can incorporate in their regular English classes. By the end of the session the participants will be able to: increase their knowledge about media literacy (what it is, how important it is, what the dangers are if we ignore it, what impact it has on our lives); learn new methods so that they can raise awareness among their students and the communities they live in on this topic; learn what they can do practically in their classes so that their students can become more active citizens in the global world with a focus on media literacy, critical thinking and global skills; find ideas and partners to set up collaborative projects with school communities in order to promote global awareness related to one of the threats of the century and the world we live in; connect and share with other educators; find out resources they can access and use while setting up activities dealing with media literacy, and global skills.
How can incorporate media literacy and critical thinking with a focus on global skills in our classrooms?
