Information handling is a skill which is essential in our information rich age.
There is far more information around than ever before - and it's still getting more!

Information handling must be learned in a way so it's a part of all learning not just taught in one lesson.

You can use these skills whenever you need to find out anything - whether it's the time of the next train or planning what you want to do with your whole life! You can certainly use it in all those lessons which ask you to do research and planning.

Using a computer for editing, processing and presenting work is also important - ICT skills are really important in the world of work.

Most of the following lessons rely on digital information and so you should be familiar with the word processing skills of copy, paste, inserting text and moving blocks of text. If you're not, try these lessons first - then come back to Plan a Holiday!
