There are so many things you can do on a computer it is important to keep a clear picture in your head about what you can and cannot do so you can see the progress and the learning gaps. Students I have worked with have found it invaluable to do a skills checklist because it makes them realise they have knowledge gaps and do have things to learn.It also enables them to see what they have as ICT skills assets. For the students I have worked with their gaps have largely been in database knowledge and then a number of them have media gaps. It changes , though , because our world is changing. Currently there are these many jobs which require ICT skills. A simple overview of skills can come from this checklist. There is then a very comprehensive list which you can download from the NSW Public Schools site. This checklist is invaluable because you can build your own custom lists for training or working out where you are delivering ICT skills in the curriculum. Fantastic audit list. I check these lists for myself from time to time and work out what I need to do next. Computers can be daunting but they can be very helpful when they supply you with such comprehensive checklists!!
