Abstract

The growing use of information and communications technologies in commerce and industry is once again encouraging debate and questioning of the development of students' skills and knowledge in this domain. Whereas in the past, the debate has centred on school education, questions about ICT literacy are now being raised in the context of post-compulsory education. Post-compulsory education sits ahead of employment and ICT literacy in the population and workforce is seen as an important component of a nation's competitiveness and advancement. This paper explores the concept ICT literacy in the light of new technologies and suggests factors that are currently seen to limit and impede its attainment.
