1 COMMISSION ON INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY NATIONAL ICT COMPETENCY STANDARD (NICS) FOR TEACHERS

2 INTRODUCTION The National ICT Competency Standard (NICS) for Teachers defines the competency outcomes, and the supporting knowledge and skills that are needed to utilize ICT in performing the job roles related to teaching. It provides the performance indicators to evaluate the level of knowledge and competence of teacher to apply ICT in the educational setting. In general, this set of competencies aims to prepare teachers to become users of various ICTs to help both the students and themselves benefit from the technology. The prime benefits are: 1) access to information and knowledge resources, 2) communication and knowledge sharing, and 3) work efficiency. Some of these competencies are expected to be acquired during the pre-service training while the rest are long-term competencies that teachers will have to acquire in-service. The NICS-Teachers is based on a broad comparative research on current industry practices in other countries, and was developed in consultation with various government and private agencies, institutions, and stakeholders. Knowledge and skills in competency areas are presented generally with specifics on essential areas of learning, but avoids reference to specific vendors, versions or equipment. Thus, it allows flexibility in the adoption of the standard while preserving the general requirements for competence. A series of technical discussions and workshops were conducted in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao to ensure a concrete ICT Competency Framework for each major and specific area. Attendees to these workshops include: Undersecretaries, Directors, and Consultants from Commission on Higher Education and Department of Education; Deans, Department Heads, and faculty members of private and State Universities and Colleges; Faculty members of various public and private elementary and secondary schools; Project Directors of different Non-Government Organizations; and IT Officers, Head Programmers, and MIS Heads of various National Government Agencies, Government Owned and Controlled Corporations, and private institutions.

4 DEFINITION OF TERMS Information & Communications Technology (ICT) Information and Communications Technology" (ICT) is defined as the totality of electronic means to collect, store, process and present information to end-users in support of their activities. It consists, among others, of computer systems, office systems and consumer electronics, as well as networked information infrastructure, the components of which include the telephone system, the Internet, fax machines and computers ICT Integration in Teaching The utilization of ICT for the effective performance of teaching tasks ICT Integration in Learning The utilization of ICT to facilitate learning process Standard Conventionally, a standard is defined as an accepted or approved example or technique against which other things are judged or measured, or which sets out a set of criteria that serves as a guideline for how something should be done; accepted level and scope of attainment of proficiency; a reference point against which other things are judged or measured. In the handbook, the term is used to refer to concise statements that describe the key area of competency. Competency Knowledge, skill, ability, or characteristic associated with high performance on a job. Some definitions of competency include motives, beliefs, and values. Competencies can also help distinguish high performance from average and low performance; a desirable quality or behavior; a performance indicator National Competency Standard for Teachers 1

5 UNDERSTANDING THE STRUCTURE The NICS is a wealth of information presented in a very compact form comprising the following elements: Standard Title The Standard Title is a concise statement that describes the key area of competency. Standard Descriptor The Standard Descriptor is a brief description of the skills set covered by the standard. Statements Statements describe in outcome terms the key areas of competence covered by the standard. Statements are focused on performance and are demonstrable. Indicators The Indicators identify the actions an individual would normally take to perform the area of competence detailed in the relevant statement. They are specific evidence of the achievement of a defined skill or knowledge level or the competent completion of a task.
