Welcome to Information Literacy
ICT Literacy Logo What does it mean to be literate in a technology-driven world?

“ICT proficiency is the ability to use digital technology, communication tools, and/or networks appropriately to solve information problems in order to function in an information society. This includes the ability to use technology as a tool to research, organize, evaluate, and communicate information and the possession of a fundamental understanding of the ethical/legal issues surrounding the access and use of information.” (ETS, Succeeding in the 21st century, 2003, p. 11)

The ICT literate individual can access, manage, integrate, evaluate, create, communicate information purposefully, knowledgeably, technically, and ethically.

ICT literacy academic support community in the CSU includes discipline faculty, library faculty, administrators and other stakeholders who share a common interest in enhancing the quality of teaching and learning for SCU students so that they will graduate with the necessary critical ICT knowledge, skills and dispositions to be successful information consumers and producers.  To that end, the ICT Literacy community is an open-ended learning environment includes resources, services, and communication.
