1. What makes ICT a critical topic in today’s climate, and why is fluency in it essential?

  2. What outcomes are needed? That is, how can ICT fluency be defined in practice?

  3. What is currently being taught or learned?

  4. How are the outcomes being measured?

  5. What changes may be needed in the original ICT fluency framework of Being Fluent?

The next five chapters of this report summarize those five sessions. The questions that begin each chapter capture the major themes that were discussed during the session

Significant work on ICT education remains to be done, especially in high schools. By identifying what is known and unknown about the acquisition of ICT fluency during the high school years, the workshop was designed to move this work forward. The hope of its organizers and participants is that the workshop and this report will inform the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies, as well as policy makers, administrators, and faculty in high schools, community colleges, and undergraduate settings, as they consider ways of enhancing the ICT fluency of high school graduates.
