Connecting Metaliteracy, Open Pedagogy, and Wikipedia Editing

Trudi Jacobson has written a post for the WikiEdu blog under the title above. In it, she very briefly explores these elements as they are explained in the new book she wrote with Tom Mackey, Metaliteracy in a Connected World: Developing Learners as Producers (ALA/Neal-Schuman, 2022). She mentions that in chapter 3, the authors show how ”metaliteracy provides a comprehensive scaffolding and framework for the learning, and indeed the teaching, that takes place in open pedagogical environments” (p. 85). Chapter 4 includes course-based case studies, one of which is centered on the educational Wikipedia editing program offered by Wiki Education.
