Abstract

Learners in the twenty-first century are necessary to possess the requisite knowledge of and proper attitudes toward information processing with the use of information technology (IT) in order to cope with the changes in the information society. In response to the demand of information literacy (IL) in the society, an IT curriculum framework is proposed that fosters the IL of students. The curriculum framework is based on the rationale of significant learning and designed on the principles of providing authenticity and creating reflection. It consists of three parts: a core IT curriculum; use of knowledge about IT and information processing across curricula; and a school culture that fosters IL. Copyright © 2007 北京師範大學出版社.
