Information communications technology (ICT) refers to the study of any technology that uses telecommunication to store, transmit or access digital information. It focuses on the way that modern technology affects our society and how we communicate. From smartphones and wifi, to hashtags and instant messaging: over the last 20 years, technology has dramatically changed the way in which we live and communicate. Does your interest in technology extend beyond the hardware? Are you curious about how digital information is spread? Maybe you just want to know more about computers and how, when and why people use them? If so, ICT could be the course for you.
Technology like art is a soaring exercise of the human imagination.
Pupils are taught how to design, use and evaluate computational abstractions that model the state and behavior of real-world problems and physical systems Students will understand several key algorithms that reflect computational thinking [for example, ones for sorting and searching]; They will use logical reasoning to compare the utility of alternative algorithms for the same problem. Students will also use two or more programming languages, at least one of which is textual, to solve a variety of computational problems. The ICT is blended with Computer Science within KS3 to provide students with a rigorous and balanced curriculum.
Cambridge IGCSE (9–1) Information and Communication Technology provides learners with the ability to use a broad range of ICT skills and encourages knowledge and understanding of the development of ICT systems, networks and their safe use. This course provides learners with the ability to understand the rapid change of ICT in a technology-based world and the impact ICT has on the world. Learners in a modern ICT based world need to have the ability to gather, process and manipulate data; this course helps learners to fulfil this.
Cambridge International AS & A Level Information Technology encourages learners to meet the needs of
Higher Education courses in Information Technology as well as employers.
Information Technology (IT) is the application of technology to process information. In a world where IT is
constantly changing, individuals increasingly need technological and information literacy skills that include the
ability to gather, process and manipulate data.
The impact of IT on society is enormous and as the percentage of businesses and households connected to
communication networks such as the internet grows, so does the need for individuals who understand these new
This syllabus encourages learners to become effective and discerning users of IT. It helps them to develop a broad range of IT skills, knowledge and understanding. Learners study the structure and use of IT systems within a wide range of organisations, including the use of a variety of computer networks. As a result, learners gain an understanding of IT system life cycles, and how these affect the workplace. They also learn about the wider impact of IT on society in general. At A Level, learners also study simple programming for the web relevant to their own use of IT.
