ICT Leadership for Education Managers
Issues regarding effective use of ICT resources (Module 3: Workshop 2)
"Policy provides school community members with the guidance required to ensure a consistent approach in dealing with a contentious issue. With the increasing impact of ICT integration, the need for a well-articulated and understood information policy process has been brought to the fore in many schools. And the key to successful policy implementation is that this is developed and 'owned' by all stakeholders within the community."

Information literacy is the ability to locate, evaluate and effectively use the information needed for a particular purpose. Ultimately information literate people know how to learn. They know how to learn because they know how information is organised, how to find information and how to use information in such a way that others can learn from them.
