Abstract

Primary source documents were used with high school students in order to identify skills for Information Communication and Technology Literacy (ICT). In a successful partnership between the high school and the college of education at a nearby university, the media specialist, classroom teacher and the researcher guided 12th grade students in the use of online primary sources for completing a research project. Students gained new skills in (1) framing a research question, (2) planning search strategies using online primary source documents, (3) designing electronic slide presentations, and (4) gaining new skills in perspective-taking with historical documents. Students demonstrated proficiencies in the area of ICT literacy through the development of electronic slide presentations with conclusion statements based on diverse perspectives revealed in digital primary source documents.
