What you need to know        
In searching for and selecting information, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:
  • identify suitable sources of information (e.g. hand-written documents, material to be
    scanned, files on discs, CD-ROMs, databases, the Internet);
  • search for information using multiple criteria (e.g. operators such as ‘and’, ‘greater than’
    and tools such as search engines);
  • interpret information and decide what is relevant to your purpose (e.g. respond to an
    enquiry, write a project report, help solve a problem, design or make something).
In developing information, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:
  • enter and bring together information (e.g. ‘copy and paste’o r import text, images, numbers), using formats that help development (e.g. using tabs rather than spaces to align text, using tables or frames to position information);  
  • explore information as needed for your purpose (e.g. follow lines of enquiry, explore the effects of changing information in a spreadsheet model to make and test predictions); 
  • develop information in the form of text, images and numbers (e.g. link information, organise information under headings, restructure tables, generate charts and graphs from data, select records or fields and prepare reports from a database); 
  • derive new information (e.g. compare information from different sources to reach a conclusion, use formulae to calculate information such as a total or average).

In presenting information, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:

  • select and use appropriate layouts for presenting combined information (e.g.
    document structures such as margins, columns and headings, borders for images and text,
    record structures, tables, spreadsheets);
      
  • develop the presentation to suit your purpose and types of information, including
    text, images and numbers (e.g. highlight information to improve its impact, refine layouts,
    make sure it suits the needs of your audience);
     
  • ensure your work is accurate and clear (e.g. proof-read, use a spell-checker, seek the view
    of others), and is saved appropriately (e.g. use suitable folders/directories and file names,
    avoid loss).

You will also need to know the benefits and disadvantages of using IT; when it is necessary to observe copyright or confidentiality; how to identify errors and their causes and minimise risks from viruses; and how to work safely and minimise health risks.
