Metaliteracy and Emerging Technologies: Educational Leadership Beyond the Horizon

Thursday, February 21 | 10:15AM–11:00AM PT | Pacific Promenade - Poster36
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
Educational leadership beyond the horizon requires a broader and more inclusive perspective. While information literacy and digital literacy (as constructs) have permeated across campuses, a common transdisciplinary understanding and language will facilitate the integration of these constructs into course, program, school, and institutional-level efforts. We will expand on the definition for the construct of metaliteracy (Mackey and Jacobson 2011); discuss how it's transdisciplinary and requires adaptability; and provide an interactive opportunity to develop an action plan for a course, program, school, or institution that is relevant to each participant.

Outcomes: Understand the construct of metaliteracy, with key points including a shift to teach adaptability to technology * Identify one area in your work where metaliteracy instruction can be impactful * Develop a brief action plan for impactful integration of metaliteracy into your efforts
