ICT Year 9

Mr Sebastian

Introduction:

Steve Jobs once said, "Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer... because it teaches you how to think."

“ICTs are influencing employment both as an industry that creates jobs and as a tool that empowers workers to access new forms of work, in new and more flexible ways,” says Chris Vein, World Bank Chief Innovation Officer for Global ICT Development. “The emerging ICT-enabled employment opportunities matter because countries around the world are looking to create more good jobs, which have positive economic and social implications for workers and for society.”
