ICT and Computing

Welcome to ICT 2017-2018

ICT (Information and Creative Technology) and Computing are two disciplines that involve the use of computers in modern society. ICT focuses on the use of programs and how software solutions are developed and deployed in business. Computing investigates how the programs we use are created. It also examines how computer hardware and software work on a logical and electronic level.
