A sound grasp of information and communication technology (ICT) is fundamental to engagement in modern society. It gives pupils the skills and understanding needed to use technology effectively, every day and in the world of work ahead. Information and communication technology teaches pupils how to find information appropriate to a task and to judge the accuracy and reliability of what they find. They learn to develop words and numbers, not just into reports, presentations and spreadsheets but also into information systems and computer models.
