About the content

This course prepares learners to empower themselves through metaliteracy in a connected world. Metaliteracy promotes critical thinking and self-reflection to consume, create, and share information with others. Participants will learn how to critically navigate, evaluate and produce information in open, online, and social media settings. This course features videos, readings, discussions, and learning activities that promote metaliteracy competencies. Participants will become active and collaborative digital citizens who locate and evaluate information in 21st century social environments, including Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), while making contributions to these spaces as self-reflective and empowered metaliterate learners. Metaliteracy is an empowering idea because it encourages individuals to be active and self-reflective participants in today’s expanding information environments. This approach is relevant to anyone who wants to be an informed consumer of digital information and active contributor to social settings mediated by technology. It is invaluable to learners in a variety of fields and disciplines that involve evaluating and managing information. Metaliteracy is also relevant to anyone in the workplace who wants to improve the ability to search, evaluate, produce, and distribute information. This approach supports college students who want to expand their critical thinking capabilities through research, writing, and adaptation to emerging technologies. It is also relevant to anyone taking a MOOC or pursuing social learning opportunities because it empowers users to be active and engaged digital citizens.
