The third YALS online spring meetup, organized by Oxford School Leskovac and led by teacher Jelena Spasic, took place on Wednesday, 27th May. The topic of the workshop was Media Literacy and the materials used were part of the Fulbright TEA Program that teacher Jelena attended during February and March, 2020 at Kent State University, Ohio, the USA. Around 20 teenagers from Belgrade, Valjevo, Kula, Nis and Leskovac gladly participated in the discussions showing a great level of fluency as well as critical thinking. They did a poll about how much they use different media, watched a video and played an interactive online game all with the aim to find out as much as possible, within the 60 minutes of the workshop, about media literacy, informative news and propaganda and the importance of distinguishing between the real and fake news.
Many thanks to all the students who actively took part in the workshop as well as to all the teachers for their selfless support and collaboration.
