In an effort to encourage the development of these skills among college students, a number of government organizations have participated to develop and promote the ICT profile. This profile helps students and teachers identify many of the most important ICT skills.
Check out the following resources on each of the ICT competencies:
- Using a Computer and the Internet
- Information Literacy
- Processing Information
- Presenting Information
- Online Communication and Collaboration
If you are trying to find ways to incorporate these ICT competencies into your courses, or if your department or program is looking to do the same, please contact us at the PDO.
