Hello audience. Throughout these past months I was engaged in learning of a higher and more engaging form of literacy: metaliteracy. Well the course was fine and dandy and actually alot of the learning took place outside of the classroom and it was more of a hands-on thing, very different than traditional learning. By traditional learning I mean "...sit here and listen to the teacher". It was quite a shift that I wasn't all too ready for but I believe the format is much more ....

Multimedias and Multiliteracies
, I'm in the Moment, October 31, 2013
Do you wonder where do the boundaries of different types of literacies reside?Well before getting to the edges of literacy definitions lets look at actual definitions. Just take a look some of these to get an understanding of each specific literacy: (Click on the image to enlarge)source: http://digitalis.nwp.org/resource/5066source: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100503190811AAO4ZLDSo yes, there are many types of literacies and very specific defining criteria ....

Metamorphosis into the Metavisual
, I'm in the Moment, October 31, 2013
It's time that something needs to change around here. I have recently learned that improvements must be made on this blog because I realize how boring and plain it was. Hopefully now I can up the ante and make this more interesting. I don't want my readers to be bored by what they see.Don't be this guy!In order to present information well it must be attractive and engaging to a certain extent. This is the topic of a MOOC talk "Connecting Visual Literacy to Metaliteracy". .... Thu, 31 Oct 2013 16:27:00 +0000 [Comment]

Metaliteracy simplified and re-freshened
, I'm in the Moment, October 22, 2013
Hello meta-audiences! There has been something on my mind lately: life is busy and time is short. We all have our own thing going on and we give priorities and spend time on what we value. Truthfully, my talks of metaliteracy are academia related and serve as a requirement for me. My enthusiasm for it varies. Metaliteracy does seem like an abstract concept after all, probably because it sounds too weird and it's hard to get motivation going.But as I may have mentioned, many of us in some ....

Metaliteracy on a Global Perspective
, I'm in the Moment, October 16, 2013
"Metaliteracy in Beta" This was the topic from the 4th MOOC talk I listened to.But exactly what does that mean? During the talk, the speaker was speaking on metaliteracy which was shaped by his personal views. This is true on any source of knowledge; information is never neutral.People's understandings of literacies are influenced by their surroundings and personal dispositions.Think of it as an argument: each side has its own agendas, information presented in the way they view ....

The best part of the internet and social media is how freely I can open up to you and empowers me to write things I wouldn't normally say. That however is not the point of the title of this post.The topic of openness in this post is related to "Open Content".It is also the topic of the 3rd MOOC talk that I am listening to.As information is easily spread and shared digitally, sometimes we encounter problems:Ownership, licensing, and giving credit where credit is due.In today's world ....

Into the MOOC
, I'm in the Moment, October 8, 2013
Hello you all. Sorry I haven't been posting as much as I should have. Personal things going on and lethargy got the better of me. Quite the lazy metaliterate learner. Now what is a metaliterate learner you may ask? Now this goes back the my interpretation of metaliteracy and I'll side track a bit. Generally metaliteracy is any form of information that inquires you think and learn. Lately I have been going over some MOOC talks as a critical part of a course I'm taking. (....

Collaborative Information
, I'm in the Moment, September 20, 2013
Whoops so I haven't been quite constant with my posts since last time. There are alot of things to do and its been quite difficult to find the time to do it, which brings us to this topic: collaborative information.Collaboration with others is usually always a good thing, it reduces time and effort and like the proverb goes "two heads are better than one". I wish I had a constant companion to share stories and ideas with and sometimes its hard to collaborate with others when we all have .... Wed, 18 Sep 2013 18:27:00 +0000 [Comment]
