This paper describes the initial stages of an attempt to profile competencies related to the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in an educational setting, along distinct dimensions. Items were selected and adapted from existing literature, and an initial classification yielded four orders of competency. This was then submitted to judges for validation and a subsequent questionnaire was administered to 19 teachers. A first look at the results has shown that competency levels are low and a further correlation analysis of the results has shown that 4 orders of competency can be clearly identified.
