ICT competencies changing education.



Or more precisely, the developing ICT competencies of pupils and teachers that education should be changing to respond to.

“Web communication; a skill for all” is a white paper produced for Macromedia, that had input from people at the leading edge of web design. The theme of the paper is that ICT appears to be driving a fundamental transformation of the knowledge and communication environment we all live in. If this is true then there will need to be corresponding developments in education. This is a matter of how information is presented to audiences. Properly designed websites will guide the interactions of users, drawing information from databases and presenting it in ways to suit the audience and their needs. This asserts the primacy of communication of information over how it is organised and stored.
