O impácto das TICs na Educação

A UNESCO disponibilizou um trabalho sobre as transformações que as TIC têm operado na educação, mais concretamente na região da Ásia-Pacífico. A publicação tem como título: ICT transforming education: A regional guide.

Veja abaixo alguns trechos:
«To be effective in the 21st century, citizens and workers must be able to exhibit a range of functional and critical thinking skills, such as:

- Information Literacy
- Media Literacy
- ICT (Information, Communications and Technology) Literacy

(...) Information literacy, media literacy and ICT literacy form one of the four broad sets of skills identified by P21 that students need to acquire to be effective citizens and workers in the 21st century. Since the focus of this Guide is on ICT in education, this grouping of skills is now expanded further in order to foreshadow what implications there are for teachers and teacher educators.

Digital literacy (or in the plural digital literacies), e-literacy, new literacies, screen literacy, multimedia literacy, information literacy, ICT literacies – these are all terms to describe clusters of skills that students (and their teachers) need in the digital age of the 21st century. Because of ICT, concepts of literacy have extended well beyond the traditional notions of print-based literacy.»
