ICTs in everyday life

Introduction

Unit image

Whether we are aware of it or not, we are surrounded by networks through which information flows constantly. Our notions of time and location are changing – the world seems to have become a ‘global village’ where distance is no longer a barrier to commercial or social contact. If we live in Britain or other parts of the westernised world, it's difficult to imagine being without all the networked infrastructure that plays a crucial part in our daily lives. This free course, ICTs in everyday life, is about how this infrastructure of information and communication technologies (ICTs) permeates our lives.
