Beyond Technical Competence: Literacy in Information and Communication Technology

Tuesday, January 31 | 11:00AM–12:00PM | California Ballroom
Session Type: Professional Development

Despite coming of age with the Internet and other technology, many college students lack the information and communication technology (ICT) literacy skills—locating, evaluating, and communicating information—necessary to navigate through and make good use of the overabundance of information available today. This presentation will define ICT literacy, discuss its growing importance, and demonstrate how a new assessment can help higher education achieve its ICT literacy goals for students.
