ICT "can do" lists

A downloadable Word document containing a set of ICT "can do" lists was added to the ICT4LT site in June 2002 and is gradually being updated and extended. It is designed for: (a) trainers, to enable them to identify trainees' strengths and weaknesses in ICT; (b) language teachers undergoing training, to enable them to assess the development of their own ICT skills, experience and understanding. The document covers selected generic applications (e.g. Word, browsers, email software, PowerPoint) and software applications that are particularly useful for language teachers. Under the heading for each application there is a range of essential tasks that the teacher should be able to carry out in order to feel comfortable working with the software - a so-called "can do" list. The applications and the tasks have been selected according to their usefulness for teaching foreign languages. Click here: ICT_Can_Do_Lists.
