The LwICT Model

The literacy with information and communication technology (LwICT) model is a visual representation of the relationship between the big ideas and guidelines of the Developmental Continuum for Literacy with ICT Across the Curriculum.

Big Ideas

The five big ideas form a continuous learning process in which students

  • question and plan
  • gather and make sense
  • produce to show understanding
  • communicate
  • reflect


The health and safety guidelines and the ethics and responsibilities guidelines support the learning process. Health and safety form the foundation for learning, and ethics and responsibilities are central to and infused throughout the learning process.
