and Communications Technologies is becoming the global
standard term for all computer, software and communications
technology related fields. From a big picture perspective,
which is important in developing policies or educational
systems, it is useful to consider as one thing all of the
closely interrelated, rapidly developing and converging fields
related to computers, software, communications technologies
and associated management practices.
In the U.S., ICT and its various sub-fields are called many
different things, ICT educational departments have many
different names and focuses, and there are important
differences in ways ICT is taught, and in ways ICT degrees and
certifications are packaged.
The Mid-Pacific ICT Center is primarily focused on ICT
education in community colleges, but it is also engaged with
the ways ICT is taught and presented to students in K-12
schools that feed students into community colleges and in
4-year colleges and universities where community colleges
students go to continue their educational careers. MPICT
endeavors to demystify often confusing ICT educational and
career issues and to harmonize many ICT educational efforts
and communications in its region.
