Promoting Metaliteracy and Metacognition in Collaborative Teaching and Learning

  1. 1. Promoting Metaliteracy and Metacognition in Collaborative Teaching and Learning 1 Trudi Jacobson and Tom Mackey #metaliteracy NOLA Information Literacy Collective Friday, August 11, 2017 3:00pm Central Time (4PM EST) Follow our Metaliteracy.org blogFollow our Metaliteracy.org blog
  2. 2. What we’ll talk about • What is metaliteracy? • Metaliteracy-related projects – Digital badging system – MOOCs • Q & A 2
  3. 3. “Metaliteracy is an overarching, self-referential, and comprehensive framework that informs other literacy types. Information literacy is the metaliteracy for a digital age because it provides the higher order thinking required to engage with multiple document types through various media formats in collaborative environments” (p. 70). 3 Mackey, T. P., & Jacobson, T. E. (2011). Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy. College & Research Libraries, 72(1), 62-78. http://crl.acrl.org/content/72/1/62.full.pdf Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy
  4. 4. Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacy to Empower Learners (Mackey and Jacobson, 2014). “While literacy is focused on reading and writing, and information literacy has strongly emphasized search and retrieval, metaliteracy is about what happens beyond these abilities to promote the collaborative production and sharing of information” (p. 6).
  5. 5. Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacy to Empower Learners (Mackey and Jacobson, 2014). “The use of the term metaliteracy suggests a way of thinking about one’s own literacy. To be metaliterate requires individuals to understand their existing literacy strengths and areas for improvement and make decisions about their learning” (p. 2).
  6. 6. 6 Metaliterate Learner Characteristics Adaptable Participatory
  7. 7. Four Domains of Metaliteracy Metacognitive: what learners think about their own thinking—a reflective understanding of how and why they learn, what they do and do not know, their preconceptions, and how to continue to learn). Cognitive: what students should know upon successful completion of learning activities— comprehension, organization, application, evaluation) Affective: changes in learners’ emotions or attitudes through engagement with learning activities) Behavioral: what students should be able to do upon successful completion of learning activities— skills, competencies Mackey and Jacobson (2014) Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacy to Empower Learners

  9. 9. ACRL Framework Introduction “…this Framework draws significantly upon the concept of metaliteracy, which offers a renewed vision of information literacy as an overarching set of abilities in which students are consumers and creators of information who can participate successfully in collaborative spaces.” http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/ilframework#introduction 9
  10. 10. ACRL Framework Introduction “Metaliteracy demands behavioral, affective, cognitive, and metacognitive engagement with the information ecosystem. This Framework depends on these core ideas of metaliteracy, with special focus on metacognition, or critical self- reflection, as crucial to becoming more self- directed in that rapidly changing ecosystem.” http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/ilframework#introduction 10
  11. 11. METALITERACY GOALS AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES 11
  12. 12. 12 Evaluate content critically, including dynamic, online content that changes and evolves, such as articles preprints, blogs, and wikis How can we learn to reject fake news in the digital world? “Digital literacy supports the effective use of digital technologies, while metaliteracy emphasizes how we think about things. Metaliterate individuals learn to reflect on how they process information based on their feelings or beliefs.” “How can we learn to reject fake news in the digital world?” (Mackey & Jacobson, The Conversation, December 5, 2016)
  13. 13. 13 “How to Spot Fake News” (Kiely and Robertson, November 18, 2016) Assess content from different sources, including dynamic content from social media, critically

  20. 20. Share Information and Collaborate in Participatory Environments 20 Image: magicatwork “Metaliterate individuals recognize there are ethical considerations involved when sharing information, such as the information must be accurate. But there is more. Metaliteracy asks that individuals understand on a mental and emotional level the potential impact of one’s participation.” “How can we learn to reject fake news in the digital world?” (Mackey & Jacobson, The Conversation, December 5, 2016)
