ICT Program ICT Definition
The World Bank defines Information Communication Technology (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.” At UW-Stout the definition also includes 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.
