SearchReSearch: What does it mean to be literate? | Information literacy | Scoop.it

Are you literate, or perhaps, how literate are you? Are you literate in all the different kinds of literacies? What do you choose to be literate in? Are you literate in "knowing how-to-search and knowing-what to search"? This article helps us think about the meanings of literacy, and the meaning of what the author is defining as metaliteracy.

Proposing A Metaliteracy Model To Redefine Information Literacy | Distance-Educator.com | Information literacy | Scoop.it

Metaliteracy is envisioned as a comprehensive model for information literacy to advance critical thinking and reflection in social media, open learning settings, and online communities. At this critical time in higher education, an expansion of the original definition of information literacy is required to include the interactive production and sharing of original and repurposed digital materials. Metaliteracy provides an overarching and unifying framework that builds on the core information literacy competencies while addressing the revolutionary changes in how learners communicate, create, and distribute information in participatory environments.

This site is designed to provide information about the concept of metaliteracy. It also highlights work that is being done in connection with metaliteracy by a group of PIs working on a SUNY IIT (Innovative Information Technology) grant. The grant awarded in 2012 is Developing a SUNY-wide Transliteracy Learning Collaborative to Promote Information and Technology Collaboration. (We decided since naming it that metaliteracy better informs the work that we are doing.)
