What you need to know           
 
In finding and developing information, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:
  • find different types of information (e.g. text, images, numbers) from IT sources (e.g. files, CD-ROM) and non-IT sources (e.g. hand-written notes, price lists, diagrams);
  • decide what information is relevant for your purpose (e.g. to answer questions from a customer, write a report, help solve a problem, make something);
  • enter and bring in information (e.g. copy and paste text, import clip-art images), using formats that help development (e.g. consistent use of spaces, tabs and returns, format of numbers, graphic features such as line thickness and shading);
  • explore information (e.g. ask the right questions to find things out, try out alternatives);
  • develop information in the form of text, images and numbers (e.g. organise information, carry out calculations).
In presenting information, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:
  • use appropriate layouts for presenting different types of information, including text, images and numbers (e.g. select screen displays or pages for different types of document, such as letters or invoices);
  • present information in a consistent way (e.g. fonts, bullet and number lists, alignments, size and position of images, tables of numbers);
  • develop the presentation to meet your purpose (e.g. organise the presentation by moving, copying, deleting and inserting information);
  • make sure your work is accurate and clear (e.g. check content is relevant, proof-read, use a spell-checker, ask others, select and highlight information to improve its clarity);
  • save information so it can be found easily (e.g. use suitable folders/directories, filenames).
You will also need to know how IT can help you in your work and be able to compare your use of IT with other methods.

It is important that you can work safely and take care of equipment, avoid losing information and know how to get help when dealing with errors.
