Information, Communications, and Technology (ICT) Curriculum blends Big6 Skills with ISTE-NETS for a seamless approach for information-technology literacy.
Authors Michael Eisenberg, Doug Johnson, and Bob Berkowitz blend baseline information literacy contexts from Big6 Skills (Eisenberg & Berkowitz, 1988) with technology standards developed by International Society for Technology in Education’s National Educational Technology Standards for Students (ISTE NETS-S, 2007). The result is a guideline for relevant technology skills all K-12 students could reasonably be expected to demonstrate before they graduate.
Originally known as a research methodology, the Big 6 has newly emerged as a single curriculum combining technology and information literacy. -JL
