SKILLS, USE AND PERCEPTIONS OF ICT BY SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS THROUGH RESULTS IN THE ICILS 2013 TEST IN THE CANTON OF TICINO, SWITZERLAND

SUPSI/DFA (SWITZERLAND)
During the last twenty years, many countries began to introduce the ICT in the school environment (Calvani, 2009). The principal reason behind this increase of technologies infrastructures inside the schools is that lately these are exploited by the societies for communication as an information tool. Internet and technological devices give easy access to all these information (Calvani, 2009). It is necessary that young people have a conscious use of these tools, especially in the communication and sharing of personal information. Since 1995, the idea of literacy has evolved to the ability to select the information found online and to understand whether these are reliable. In 2010 the International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS) began to investigate young people's skills in the use of computer and research of information with digital devices (Ainley, Fraillon & Schulz, 2013). In this paper the main purpose is in the first place to expose results achieved by the students in the south part of Switzerland precisely Italian speaking and find some relationships between them and the answers given by students at the questionnaire attached at the test. Is the accessibility to internet, technological devices etc that improves results? Is this accessibility encouraged inside the school with a strong technological infrastructure or in the family environment? How are perceived the ICT by thirteen years old students? Throughout those analyses, a second purpose will be to discuss the consciousness of young students in the use of internet as this is an important part of the ICILS test: are students aware about danger in sharing information? Are they capable of understand whether an information is reliable or not? Are they conscious of what they doing for example in defaming someone on the net? So at the end in this paper the skills studied in the ICILS test will be an entering to discuss some topics connected at the ICT in the education environment: the use, the familiarity, and the consciousness of this big world that is internet.
