We're living in the era ongoing change, especially in technology. What might exist one day doesn't exist the next. Take a look at what happened to Covid-19! Thus, ICTs are the current innovation in education, allowing teachers and students to make significant changes to the way they teach and learn on a daily basis. With the aid of these technology, we can now access a different world of information that is readily available to both teachers and students.

What is ICT?

The term "ICT tools" refers to a collection of technologies that have been developed to manage information and transmit it from one location to another. ICT stands for "Information and Communication Technologies." Information can be in many different forms, including sound, video, text, and images. When considering the technology that can produce various types of information and communication, as well as perhaps a mixture of all of them, we usually think of things like mobile phones, digital cameras, and video cameras, for instance. But ICTs cover more than that! With advanced software and hardware, nowadays, the learning and teaching process has become more engaging.

Why ICT is important in education?

Through methods like switching from chalkboards to interactive digital whiteboards, using students' own smartphones or other devices for learning during class time, and the "flipped classroom" model, where students watch lectures at home on the computer and use class time for more interactive exercises, ICT has, to a certain degree, become essential to the teaching-learning experience.

Using ICT tools can promote higher order thinking skills, offer unique and creative ways for students to communicate their understandings, and leave them more equipped to deal with the constant technological change in society and the workplace.

From the business perspective, technology can also improve the workflows of employees including senior and finance management as well as administrative and executive teams via process automation.
