Metaliteracy Goals and Learning Objectives Now Available in French

We are delighted to announce that the first translation of the Metaliteracy goals and learning objectives is now available. Buts et Objectifs d’apprentissage, the French translation, has kindly been provided by Florent Michelot, a Ph.D. candidate in andragogy at the Université de Montréal. Florent is developing a self-efficacy scale, partly based on metaliteracy principles, and had translated the document in connection with that work.

We would also like to thank Patti Kingsmill at Vanier College, who recognized that this translation would benefit others if accessible on this site, and assisted us with making the connection with Florent.

Merci beaucoup, Florent et Patti!

We continue to seek translations of the goals and learning objectives into other languages. We have a volunteer to translate them into German, but she would welcome collaborating with someone else, if there is interest. And if you are able to help with another language, we would be delighted. With your assistance, information about metaliteracy will become available to larger numbers of learners globally. If you are interested, please contact Trudi Jacobson (tjacobson at albany.edu) or Tom Mackey (Tom.Mackey at esc.edu).

Comments Welcomed on Revised Metaliteracy Goals and Learning Objectives

The original set of four goals and accompanying learning objectives were developed in 2014 by members of the Metaliteracy Learning Collaborative with valuable input by others, as indicated in the Additional Contributors section of the Goals and Learning Objectives page. Over the course of the last several years, there have been significant changes in our information environment and with social media in particular, and in the ways that people interact with them. We felt that it was time to review the goals and learning objectives in depth. What followed were changes both substantive and minor, as well as some reorganization.

We invite you to review and comment on these changes through the Reply feature at the bottom of Goals and Learning Objectives page. We also welcome suggestions. Our goal is to finalize the revision by September 15. Thank you.
