ICT (Information & Communication Technology) Skills

People use technology every day at home and at work. Using these technologies require skills that fall under Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and are becoming essential to work. The various ICT tools that are used include computers we use at work, smart phones through which we talk, connect to the Internet for getting information, communicate with others through email and social networks, watch movies and TV shows, etc. For example, to find a job you may have to search the Internet for job openings, create a resume on a computer, use email to send the resume, use messaging on your phone to communicate and go for the interview and get your offer letter through email again.
