The content not the container is the key to metaliteracy. The focus is the ability to use and create content across the range tools, services and understand and communicate meaning.
The learning of metaliteracy is in the doing as well as the observation. Creating active co-creators of content. It is about unifying multiple literacies and engaging the abilities to synthesize and critique information from multiple sources and channels.
Metaliteracy/transliteracy allows us to explore the social meaning of literacy and the democratization of knowledge and communication as a result of the increasing use of social media. The whole process is evolutionary building on prior knowledge creation and shared expertise.
