1.3.1. First video-based discussion

Description of the video:

Andrea Quijada de-constructs advertisements and talks about the need to create critical thinkers through media literacy, starting from young ages (TEDx Talk).


Questions for Reflection (after watching the video)

  1. This video was uploaded in 2013 and focuses mainly on TV and printed ads. How does this presentation applies in today’s digital media environment?
  2. How important is for learners of all ages to de-code visual and text messages and “read behind the lines”?
  3. Can you think of 1-2 examples from the contemporary digital world that could be de-constructed and used as examples in a classroom with adult learners?
