The Use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the Practice of Quebec Career Guidance Counsellors
Keywords:Information and Community technology, counselors, Quebec, Practice
This research presents the results of two surveys carried out in 2015 and 2016 among Québec career counsellors on the integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) into their practice. We will present the highlights of ICT use in intervention; the purposes for which ICT are used in its practice; the level of confidence to use the Internet, to conduct interviews at a distance; incentives to integrate ICT into its practice. It turns out that even though ICT has been part of the practice of career counsellors for over 40 years (Watts, 2002), their uses are still almost exclusively limited to disseminating and transmitting information.
