Synopsis

This new book presents a comprehensive structure for information literacy theory that will help your students grasp an understanding of the critical thinking and reflection required to engage in technology spaces as savvy producers, collaborators, and sharers.



Today's learners communicate, create, and share information using a range of information technologies such as social media, blogs, microblogs, wikis, mobile devices and apps, virtual worlds, and MOOCs.



In their new book, respected information literacy experts Mackey and Jacobson present a comprehensive structure for information literacy theory that builds on decades of practice while recognizing the knowledge required for an expansive and interactive information environment. The concept of metaliteracy expands the scope of traditional information skills (determine, access, locate, understand, produce, and use information) to include the collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory digital environments (collaborate, produce, and share) prevalent in today's world.



Combining theory and case studies, the authors: show why media literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy, and a host of other specific literacies are critical for informed citizens in the 21st century; offer a framework for engaging in today's information environments as active, self-reflective, and critical contributors to these collaborative spaces; and connect metaliteracy to such topics as metadata, the semantic web, metacognition, open education, distance learning, and digital storytelling.



Readership: Any librarian involved in teaching information literacy, LIS students, academics and researchers.

Trudi E. Jacobson, Distinguished Librarian, is Head of the Information Literacy Department at the University Libraries, University at Albany. Her professional interests focus on team-based and other forms of active learning, learner motivation, digital badging, and, of course, metaliteracy, a concept Tom Mackey and she developed in response to inadequate conceptions of information literacy in a rapidly changing information environment. Her website is www.trudijacobson.com. Thomas P. Mackey is Vice Provost for Academic Programs at SUNY Empire State College. His professional interests include open learning in innovative social spaces and critical engagement with emerging technologies. His collaborative work with Trudi Jacobson to originate the metaliteracy framework emphasizes the reflective learner as producer and participant in dynamic information environments. He appreciates all of their work together, especially the metaliteracy research, writing, editing, teaching, grant projects, and design of innovative learning spaces using competency-based digital badging and massive open online courses (MOOCs).
