Proposing a Metaliteracy Model to Redefine Information Literacy

Dr. Indira Koneru's insight:

Metaliteracy, an overarching and unifying framework built on the core information literacy competencies addresses the revolutionary changes in how learners communicate, create, and distribute information in participatory environments. Central  to the metaliteracy model is a metacognitive component that encourages learners to continuously reflect on their own thinking and literacy development in these fluid and  networked spaces. This approach leads to expanded competencies for adapting to the ongoing
changes in emerging technologies and for advancing critical thinking and empowerment for producing, connecting, and distributing information as independent and collaborative learners (Jacobson &  Mackey, 2013).

Information Literacy
Information literacy empowers an individual with the required “knowledge about information, its nature and available formats; skills to fetch the relevant information by sifting the irrelevant, and attitude for consuming and sharing information, by ethical means and practices”.

Chat literacy - Eldis Communities Group | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

Chat Literacy is a community platform that aims to stimulate discussion on how to develop information skills with a critical edge; and how to develop the broader values and the behaviour of a critical thinker. Our broad understanding of what it means to be information literate includes individuals who “know when they need information, and are then able to identify, locate, evaluate, organise and effectively use the information to address and help resolve personal, job related, or broader social issues and problems."

Project Information Literacy is a national study about early adults and their information-seeking behaviors, competencies, and the challenges they face when conducting research in the digital age.

PIL aims at understanding how early adults conceptualize and operationalize research activities for course work and "everyday life" use and especially how they resolve issues of credibility, authority, relevance, and currency in the digital age.

Researchers of Tomorrow : JISC

Researchers of Tomorrow : JISC | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"Researchers of Tomorrow is the UK’s largest study to date on the research behaviour of Generation Y doctoral students (born between 1982 and 1994). JISC and the British Library jointly commissioned the three year study in 2009, which involved 17,000 doctoral students from 70 universities at various stages in the project."

 

"Research findings reveal:

Doctoral students are increasingly reliant on secondary research resources (eg journal articles, books), moving away from primary materials (eg primary archival material and large datasets). Access to relevant resources is a major constraint for doctoral students’ progress. Authentication access and licence limitations to subscription-based resources, such as e-journals, are particularly problematic. Open access and copyright appear to be a source of confusion for Generation Y doctoral students, rather than encouraging innovation and collaborative research. This generation of doctoral students operate in an environment where their research behaviour does not use the full potential of innovative technology. Doctoral students are insufficiently trained or informed to be able to fully embrace the latest opportunities in the digital information environment.

These findings raise important questions about research development, training and support within research led organisations and the openness and sharing of research."
