Technology Competencies

A good (short) read at ACRLog is Steven Bell’s commentary on the article that appeared in a 2005 issue of T.H.E. Journal titled “20 Technology Skills Every Educator Should Have“.
He reviews if these skills are aligned with the ‘educator’ skills of academic librarians.
I think it’s an OK list but still worry that the primary technology competencies of searching, finding and evaluating are buried in database and web navigation skills. It also, perhaps by design, fails to acknowledge the newish ‘content’ skills when content mashes up with technology. Perhaps the list nomenclature underrates and undervalues the core skill any educator should (must) now be modeling to teach them.
