Öz:
The teaching profession, by its very nature, requires teachers to develop themselves continuously, to keep up withthe innovations emerging over time, to acquire the competencies they require, and hence keep themselves updated.In our time, in which the developments have gained an enormous pace, particularly in technology, this requirementhas become vital for teachers whose contributions to shape societies are immense. With the recent advances intechnology, it has become of great importance for teachers to learn the emerging new media culture and use themeffectively in their lessons. On the other hand, as a result of these rapid developments, the acquisition of criticalthinking, which dates back to ancient times as a concept, by teachers as a skill has become more important thanever before. At this point, there are evaluations made regarding the importance of these two skills primarily inteacher training programs. In line with these evaluations, this study examined the relationship between the criticalthinking dispositions (CTD) and their new media literacy levels (NML) of pre-service English teachers studyingat the education faculties of two foundation universities. Results showed that the candidates participating in theresearch have high level critical thinking and new media literacy skills, and there is a moderate positive relationshipbetween these two skills.© 2020 JLLS and the Authors - Published by JLLS.

İngilizce öğretmen adaylarının eleştirel düşünme eğilimleri ve yeni medya okuryazarlığı seviyeleri arasındaki ilişki

Öz:
Öğretmenlik mesleği doğası gereği öğretmenlerin sürekli olarak kendilerini geliştirmelerini, çağın getirdiği yenilikleri takip edip gerektirdiği yeterliliklere sahip olmalarını, kendilerini güncel tutmalarını gerektirmektedir. Teknoloji başta olmak üzere birçok alanda gelişmelerin hız kazandığı çağımızda bu ihtiyaç, toplumların şekillenmelerindeki katkıları düşünüldüğünde öğretmenler için oldukça hayatidir. Son dönemde gelişen teknoloji ile birlikte öğretmenlerin ortaya çıkan yeni medya kültürünü öğrenip, derslerinde etkili kullanımları büyük önem arz eder hale gelmiştir. Diğer yandan yaşanan bu hızlı gelişmeler kavram olarak çok eskilere dayanan eleştirel düşünmenin bir beceri olarak öğretmenler tarafından kazanılması günümüzde daha önemli hala gelmiştir. Bu noktada bu her iki becerinin de öncelikli olarak öğretmen yetiştirme programlarında ele alınmasının önemine yönelik değerlendirmeler yapılmaktadır. Yapılan bu değerlendirmeler doğrultusunda bu çalışmada, iki vakıf üniversitesinin eğitim fakültelerinde öğrenim gören İngilizce öğretmen adaylarının eleştirel düşünme eğilimleri ile medya okuryazarlığı seviyeleri arasındaki ilişkiyi incelenmiştir. Araştırma sonucunda araştırmaya katılan adayların yüksek seviyede eleştirel düşünme ve yeni medya okuryazarlığı becerilerine sahip oldukları, bu iki beceri arasında orta düzeyde olumlu bir ilişki olduğu görülmüştür.
