Abstract

Problem Statement: Information and Communication Technologies Action Competence (ICTAC) is defined as "individual's motivation and capacity of using information and communication technologies (ICTs) in course of critically selecting and conducting possible democratic actions that may solve societal problems related or not related to ICTs". In contrast to other fields of action competence, ICTAC is a term that deals with not only solving society-wide problems in ICT field but also all problems having potential of being affected by KT-society relation. Faculties from department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (CEIT) have significant roles in the process of helping individuals acquire ICTAC.
