Abstract

After an introduction to information and knowledge society concepts, their relevance to education is elaborated. The principal value of these concepts is that they highlight the many social changes happening concurrently with advances in information and communication technology. A conceptual framework is proposed that illuminates the role that knowledge can play in education’s attempt to apply technology to learning. In addition, the link between knowledge and ICT literacy assessment is elaborated. The discussion also stresses the role that knowledge can play in teaching within communities of practice and that technology can play in enhancing the learning and teaching processes.
