Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
The goal of my presentation is to connect with teachers worldwide to extend our understanding of media literacy and critical thinking, with a focus on global skills.
I want to introduce international teachers who teach both in high schools and middle schools to Media Literacy - what it is, how important it is, what the dangers are if we ignore it, its impact on our lives, and how we, as educators, can raise awareness among our students and our communities on this topic. I want not only to introduce ideas about propaganda, fake news, mis- / dis-information or manipulation, but also to show teachers what they can do practically in their classes, so that students become more active citizens of the global world.
I also want to show teachers a very useful activity called "My Media Landscape", which aims at getting them to realize how much time they spend daily interacting with media on different channels, both traditional and social media, and what the effects are.This is the starting point for them to set up a collaborative project with school communities around the globe in order to promote global awareness related to one of the threats of the century and world we live in, project aimed to solve one real-world problems related to media literacy.
I will focus on practical ideas teachers can apply in any school community worldwide, while connecting and sharing with other educators from a global school community. I will provide them with online resources which they can use while setting up activities dealing with media literacy, critical thinking, and global skills.
