Assessing Information and Communication Technology Literacy of Education Undergraduates: Instrument Development.
Davies, JoAnne E.; Szabo, Michael; Montgomerie, Craig
In recent years, the view that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is vital in K-12 education has become widespread. ICT use in schools has increased and various professional bodies have set ICT standards for students and teachers. Schools of education are under pressure to produce teachers who are able to effectively integrate technology into their teaching. However, most teacher preparation programs do not adequately prepare teachers in ICT, nor assess candidates relative to ICT standards. This paper discusses the development of a computerized system to assess ICT declarative and procedural knowledge and to provide a profile to the participant. (Contains 12 references and 1 table.)
