Background/Objectives: The integration of ICT was one of the major innovations introduced in teaching and learning brought by Covid-19. This study offers discussion on the effects of ICT to literacy skills. Methods/Statistical analysis: Research design is descriptive and quantitative. In this study, 310 intermediate students during the 1st Grading Period SY 2020-2021 from the 4 central elementary schools in Zone I Schools Division of Zambales described the effects of ICT on their literacy skills. Findings: The result showed that the integration was perceived to be both effective and efficient. The intermediate pupil-respondents performed “Very Satisfactory” on English subject. There was noted difference on the effects of ICT to literacy skills as to Reading Comprehension; Mastery, Retention and Remembering; Ease of Use and Accessibility; and Graphical Users Interface Motivation when respondents are grouped according to profile. There was significant difference on the level of ICT integration to students’ literacy skills as to Effectiveness and Efficiency when grouped according to profile. There was no significant relationship between the effects of ICT to literacy skills of students and academic performance and between the level of ICT integration and academic performance. Improvements/Applications: These findings imply the need for programs and projects on ICT availability to positively associate literacy skills such as providing fast and reliable internet connection, simplified graphical language, among others.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.

4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
