The Ability of Beginning University Chemistry Students to Use ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in Their Learning in 2002
Lim, Kieran F.
Online Submission, Australian Journal of Education in Chemistry v62 p27-32 Aug 2003
There is an assumption that high-school students are becoming more computer literate, but published studies of specific skill level are lacking. An anonymous multiple-choice survey self-assessed the ICT (information and communication technology) skills of first-year chemistry students at the beginning of 2002. The general level of ICT skill continues to improve. There are minor deficiencies in the use of word processors, email attachments, the WWW, and in metacognitive skills. There are significant deficiencies in the use of spreadsheets, library databases, presentation software and computer conferencing, with major deficiencies in the use of relational databases.
