Today was a special day for both me and ELT at Istanbul University as Mr. David Fay from Regional English Language Office of US Embassy paid us a visit to presentate us “Critical Media Literacy in the Digital Age.”
The presentation took place in Sayyad Hassan Pasha Madrassa which is one of the historical buildings in the area. The structure was so beautiful that it transformed boredom of idleness into pleasure of observation.
When I heard that the presentation is going to be about Critical Media Literacy I immediately assumed that the examples will be mostly about “don’t believe everything you read on the internet” and I was right to think that as many examples were about it. However it wasn’t a basic presentation, in fact it was really a good presentation with both funny and authentic examples.
At the end of the presentation I was really satisfied with it and also it was an honour for me to meet such a valuable person.
