IT vs. ICT
- IT = Information Technology
- ICT = Information and Communication Technologies
These are essentially the same thing. The difference is that the term ICT is now the dominant term in education, but is rarely used outside schools, at least in the UK. Even in education, by the time you reach university level the term IT is much more widely used than ICT.
In the context of my work and this blog, ICT refers to the curriculum subject that is taught up until students leave school at 18. IT refers to the job I do and that is done in industry. I am an IT Network Manager. My teaching colleagues are ICT teachers. This is by no means a universal nomenclature, but it is the one I use.
