Abstract: In this paper, we seek to establish a link between some basic key skills and the way in which ICT could be used to foster those skills in schools. This is preceded by a brief introduction examining what the term key skill usually stands for. We investigate how ICT can be used to foster the development of skills that are not specifically related to a particular disciplinary field or technical ability but which are relevant and useful in primary and secondary school education and can affect access to future employment. A new element presented in this work concerns the possibility of reflecting about relationships which, thanks to an appropriate use of technology, are being established between processes of innovation in school, teaching practice and the changing abilities and methods required in the world of work.
