📑 What is “Critical Literacy” in Education?

Bookmarked What is “Critical Literacy” in Education? (W. Ian O'Byrne)
Critical literacy is one of the key perspectives that informs my teaching, research, and thinking. It informs all of the work that I do, and fundamentally impacts everything from the ways in which I view the world, to the very tweets that I send out on a daily basis. It plays a role in guiding my research…I even built an entire digital literacy & education program based on the tenets of critical literacy.
Ian O’Byrne discusses the concept of critical literacy. This includes unpacking questions of truth and the dialetic critique. I really enjoy O’Byrne’s posts defining key elements in education, including empowerment and critical pedagogy. Another interesting approach to explanation is Amy Burvall’s ‘Creativity Tips’ series.
