Abstract


The aim of this study is to examine how middle and high school curricula and practices support students to acquire information, media and technology skills. In the qualitative dimension of the study which was designed according to the mixed method, document analysis, observation and interview were used. The 23-itemed Information, Media and Technology Skills Competency Scale was used for the quantitative dimension of the study. Content analysis was performed for analysing the curricula, data obtained through observations and interviews. In the analysis of the data obtained from the scale, frequency, percentage, arithmetic mean and standard deviation values were used in the central and prevalence measurements. The results of the curricula analysis show that problem solving and information and data literacy skills were outnumbered in all analysed curricula. The activities carried out in the classroom during the observation and interview process were mostly related to information and media literacy and problem solving. According to the results of the scale; middle and high school students considered themselves to be relatively moderate in their information, media and technology skills. While the highest score of the students was of information and data literacy; programming skills were the weakest dimension.
