SearchReSearch: What does it mean to be literate? | Metaliteracy | 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.

The Future of Information Literacy in Higher Education | The 3 Directions

The Future of Information Literacy in Higher Education  | The 3 Directions | Metaliteracy | Scoop.it
The Future of Information Literacy in Higher EducationThis prospectus from the ACRL task force charged with revising the ACRL Information Literacy Standards (2000) highlights the likely introduction of 'threshold concepts' and 'metaliteracy' as features of the new statement of standards.  They frame these two elements with the idea of a holistic view of educated information use and the idea of lifelong learning as opposed to a skill set that can be taught and "learned once and for all."  In a coming post I will speak in more detail as to what we are doing at SUNY Oswego in regard to threshold concepts and metaliteracy, and also how our work on a Cognitive Apprenticeship approach strengthens learning through continuous practice.  I want to emphasize the holistic aspect but for now will only point out that other things on this blog already address that thoroughly.

A great read.

"Reading is no longer black & white, top down, left to right.
Reading is now 3 dimensional not knowing where hands will click or eyes will migrate".

Proposing a Medialiteracy Model to Redefine Information Literacy

"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. 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."
