Information & Communication Technology Program of Studies (2000-2003)
General Outcomes: Statements that determine desired knowledge and values expected of students upon completion of the program.
Specific Outcomes: Describe specific skills, knowledge and attitudes of general outcomes.
These elements are connected due to that they both look at the purpose of why technology into education is so important.
Illustrative Examples: Provided as support, arranged by grade and subject as sample exercises that demonstrate and elaborate on general and specific outcomes. These are intended to provide deeper insight into their intent.
Assessment Framework: Refer to the
Classroom Assessment Tool Kit

ICT Outcomes: Communication, inquiry, decision-making and problem solving skills with grounded in foundational knowledge and concepts as well as the process of productivity.
The ICT outcomes are set by Alberta Ed, and they are duplicated in the international standards.
