I chose this topic to bring the importance of technology, especially computer technology to your attention, as teenagers you only use ICTs

to a certain extend not knowing that there is a whole new digital world awaiting to be implemented especially in the times we live In now,

(during a pandemic) and the more years passing by the more advanced the technology becomes this can only mean that in the near


ICT's will be the only way to go about life and since you are the children of our future I think it important that you know what ICTs are,

how it is used and how it's not supposed to be used so you can apply the knowledge whenever you need to.
