Information and communication technology (ICT) skills
Skills needed for efficient use of information and communication technologies (ICT).
Comment: in a report on ICT skills and employment, OECD proposes a simple classification:
- professional ICT skills: ability to use advanced ICT tools, and/or to develop, repair and create such tools;
- applied ICT skills: ability to use simple ICT tools in general workplace settings (in non-IT jobs);
- basic ICT skills or ‘ICT literacy‘: ability to use ICT for basic tasks and as a tool for learning.
