Didactic Possibilities of Critical Thinking Strategies as a Tool for Implementing Media Education Technology for Developing Key Skills of Students


The relevance of the study lies in the fact that intense social changes are transforming not only society, but also affect the main reference points in education, which prompts the teaching community to consider current trends in the development of the European school. The purpose of the study is to generalize and systematize scientific, methodological, pedagogical and psychological aspects of the learning process and the development of key skills of students through the use of didactic capabilities of media education technologies. The theoretical and methodological basis of the research consists of methodologies of the following approaches: didactic, general scientific, comparative. In the process of research it was determined that in a changing environment, only individuals who are able to adapt to constant rapid change, solve complex problems, think critically about the circumstances, compare alternative points of view and make balanced decisions can navigate and act actively. It is confirmed that the main goal of modern education is not to provide students with important information, but to develop a critical view of the perception and research of information. Media education technologies were found to help prepare an applicant of education for life in an information society, choose the main thing among the incessant flow of information, critically examine the information received, and cooperate with others. In scientific research, media education is considered as one of the tools that helps teachers replace passive listening of a student or primitive retelling with active participation in the educational process, and thereby increase the effectiveness of classes. The introduction of media-educational technologies in practice was proved to solve this issue by applying strategies for the development of critical and systematic thinking. The practical significance lies in the implementation and systematization of critical thinking mechanisms as a tool for introducing media education technology for the development of key skills of students
