Abstract: Society-wide problems require changes on both individual and societal levels. Personal capacities like influencing others and representing social actions are key factors in the solution of such problems. Action competence was introduced as an inclusive concept for those personal capacities. The concept was primarily applied to environment, health and peace education. Application of the concept to the information and communication technologies (ICT) era is assumed to be a milestone on our way to a information society. In this respect, this study aimed to draw a pedestrian model of ICT action competence.
