Being Philosophical about digital media: applying critical thinking skills to new cultural environments

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The CTS (critical thinking skills) project builds upon evidence based approaches to learning to work with teachers and students from Victorian areas identified as having disproportionate levels of vulnerable and marginalised young people. The project aims to foster inclusive & mutually supportive communities and demonstrate the benefits of combining philosophical critical thinking skills with media theory to affect practical interventions in social education for vulnerable young people. CTS results in intellectual resilience, teaching how to think independently, responsibly and creatively. The aim is to empower young people via their peers, and to provide them skills to critically navigate digital environments.
