Abstract

Critical thinking unites the modern university in an effort to train students across the curricular to exercise independent, informed judgment. Critical thinking is a useful tool in developing literacy in a time of dominance by the mass media. The development of new communication technologies challenge assumptions guiding critical thinking by giving rise to novel contexts for the production and evaluation of arguments. This paper examines the challenges to revise critical thinking and develop strategies for new media literacy for participatory, digital culture.

Critical Thinking in a Digital Age: Argumentation and the projects of new media literacy

University of Windsor

Critical thinking unites the modern university in an effort to train students across the curricular to exercise independent, informed judgment. Critical thinking is a useful tool in developing literacy in a time of dominance by the mass media. The development of new communication technologies challenge assumptions guiding critical thinking by giving rise to novel contexts for the production and evaluation of arguments. This paper examines the challenges to revise critical thinking and develop strategies for new media literacy for participatory, digital culture.
