ICT In the Modern World
How Has Technology Improved Over Time?
What Is ICT?
Over time Technology has advanced in many different ways.
Some examples of this are, The iPhone, MacBooks, and other smart devices.
According to Margaret Rouse of TechSmart ICT is:
"... an umbrella term that includes any communication device or application, encompassing: radio, television, cellular phones, computer and network hardware and software, satellite systems and so on, as well as the various services and applications associated with them, such as videoconferencing and distance learning.”
Technology has evolved a lot over the years. Just a couple years ago, Iphones did not exist. In fact, portable cell phones just recently became popular. In 1983, the DynaTAC 8000x became the first portable phone to be commercially available.
Technologies that Affect Us Today

Technology now allows us to do many things at the same time!
One can talk on the phone and be playing their favorite game.

ICT is basically used by everyone including teens, adults, business owners, and leaders and it is important in our developing world today.
Social media is a tool that also has evolved a lot over the years. Social media allows users to connect with friends and meet new friends, too. This is a more efficient way of communicating with others, rather than sending updates in the mail.
Social media can be addicting, it can lead to cyberbullying, and being on the internet makes us restless.
Kids are so used to texting and the correction their phones make that their writing skills have decline tremendously. Some kids are forgetting to improve their writing skills because they are relying so much on technology
