This website provides several subject-specific guides to ICT literacy resources (bibliographies, websites, articles, learning activity ideas) to help faculty incorporate ICT literacy into their curriculum. Each subject guide can be accessed as an independent website.
“ICT proficiency is the ability to use digital technology, communication tools, and/or networks appropriately to solve information problems in order to function in an information society. This includes the ability to use technology as a tool to research, organize, evaluate, and communicate information and the possession of a fundamental understanding of the ethical/legal issues surrounding the access and use of information.” (ETS, Succeeding in the 21st century, 2003, p. 11)
The ICT literate individual can access, manage, integrate, evaluate, create, communicate information purposefully, knowledgeably, technically, and ethically.
The ICT literacy academic support community includes discipline faculty, library faculty, administrators and other stakeholders who share a common interest in enhancing the quality of teaching and learning for students so that they will graduate with the necessary critical ICT knowledge, skills and dispositions to be successful information consumers and producers. To that end, the ICT Literacy community is an open-ended learning environment that includes resources, services, and communication.
