  • TomThis is our visual model to explain Metaliteracy (pause)We see this as a flexible, circular model that builds on information literacy with new technologies and competencies (pause)Metaliteracy expands information literacy to include the ability to produce, share, and collaborate in open learning and social media environments (pause)Metaliteracy also includes a central focus on metacognition, or the ability to think about one’s thinking.Today’s learner moves through these spheres from any direction rather than a traditional linear manner

  • TomTransliteracy and metaliteracy have been compared in the literature (pause)In this article Michelle Dunaway argues that both frameworks move beyond traditional skills-based instruction (pause)And that emerging technologies are central to both concepts of literacy (pause)We agree with this point
  • TomDunaway also says that both frameworks focus on the importance of communities, connections, and networks (pause)She compares this to the theory of “connectivism” by George Siemens (pause)Siemens argues that we learn by making connections in networks

  • TrudiHere is the landing page of one team’s website. This team of 5 students created this entire resource. I should mention that this course is only 14 hours long, and the students do all the work on the website in class (pause)Greg will put the URL in the chat window in case you would like to explore it. http://mediapolitics.weebly.com/index.html
