The new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)

The huge avalanche of information resources that give life to the Internet laid the foundations on which many investigations coincided in predicting radical changes in institutions.

What are the ICT?

Information and communication technologies (ICT) is a broad term used to designate what is related to Internet-connected computing, and especially the social aspect of these.
