Information technology is at the heart of virtually everything that we do nowadays. Whether it simply using a PC to write letters or send emails or perhaps using mobile phones to stay in touch by social networks. Or even using a tablet to surf the net to buy a holiday or order a takeaway or buy some theatre tickets, IT enables this vast new virtual world to enhance the way that we do things.
The future holds some amazing developments and the pace at which this evolution will take place gathers speed every day. It is therefore vital that our younger generation can keep up with this and perhaps help in the way it actually evolves to the benefit of society.
A sound knowledge of the fundamentals of IT is therefore important and the IT strategy at St James is to teach both excitement and wonder in the use of computers in its many forms and also the danger and less desirable aspects that lurk within.
