In a world where anyone with an internet connection can access, create and share information, opinions and beliefs, it has become increasingly important that students are not only able to assess the credibility of sources but also to look more deeply at the underlying motivations, beliefs and bias of the creator.
Thinking Critically through Digital Media enables teachers to use authentic materials and digital tools combined with motivating communicative tasks to develop students’ abilities to function as critical and well informed digital citizens.
The book contains a wide range of tasks and activities that teachers can use to help students understand visually presented information, how and why the information was collected, research and check the validity of the sources on which the information was based and think about and share how the materials relate to their own lives.
Thinking Critically through Digital Media is the fourth book in the Digital Classrooms series. The first book Digital Video - A Manual for Language Teachers was published in 2015 and was followed by 10 Lessons in Digital Literacy and Exploiting Infographics in 2016. Both of these previous two books have now been subsumed into this book with two chapters of additional materials and activities.
Thinking Critically through Digital Media builds on the concepts and learnings from those previous books to give a more complete manual for teachers who want to build their students’ digital literacy skills and critical thinking in a very interactive and students centered way.
