What is ICT?
The World Bank defines ICT as, "hardware, software, networks, and media for the collection, storage, processing, transmission and presentation of information (voice, data, text, images), as well as related services." Here at UW-Stout we also include the historic context from which current ICT's have evolved, from hieroglyphics to the Gutenberg Press to the information age that we presently live in.
My personal program goal: Upon completing this program, I will have the ability, knowledge, and resources to begin a career in e-commerce and visual communications. To achieve this I must thoroughly understand the technology available, and put it to use. My ultimate goal is to start my own web-based business working with the sale of art and photography.
The ICT program goal; This program is based on a student centered learning approach and as such each student will develop a statement that identifies their personal program goal. This is an opportunity for the student to look ahead and develop a program that best meets their needs. Visit the ICT homepage link listed at the bottom of the page for more information.
