Abstract: In this information era of online activities, including electronic shopping, banking, learning, working, playing, mailing, web browsing, tweeting, and social networking, information literacy is vital. Since this is true for people worldwide, this presentation considers a universally applicable set of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) knowledge and skills. The universal set of ICT knowledge and skills was derived by analyzing ICT standards for students published by five nations or school systems in four continents. The analyses revealed three common themes in the standards, namely fundamental computing and networking concepts, fundamental skills, and ethical issues. This presentation offers dynamic visual representations and discussion of the range of computing and networking concepts, fundamental skills, and ethical issues revealed by the analyses. Alternative perspectives on ICT skills, apart from the common themes, are also considered.
