Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy
Mackey, Thomas P.; Jacobson, Trudi E.
College & Research Libraries, v72 n1 p62-78 Jan 2011
Social media environments and online communities are innovative collaborative technologies that challenge traditional definitions of information literacy. Metaliteracy is an overarching and self-referential framework that integrates emerging technologies and unifies multiple literacy types. This redefinition of information literacy expands the scope of generally understood information competencies and places a particular emphasis on producing and sharing information in participatory digital environments.
