Information technology (IT) has been defined as the study, design, development, implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and computer hardware. Information technology deals with the use of computers and computer software to convert, store, protect, process, transmit and securely retrieve information. The term "information technology" has ballooned to encompass many aspects of computing and technology. To a large degree, we live, work and play in a digital world. The application of IT permeates all aspects of contemporary society and all aspects of the workplace, and is represented in all areas of career and technical education.

The primary purpose of the Information Technology Education section in the New and Related Services Division of ACTE is to provide awareness and support for a broad-based group dedicated to the use of information technology, teachers of information technology and today’s information technology students.

The Information Technology Education section of the New and Related Services Division will facilitate the development and delivery of presentations, coordinate the development of networks for information sharing, conduct research at the local, state and national levels, and serve as a catalyst for all other aspects associated with the establishment, maintenance and use of information technology education. Specific activities in which this section will engage are networking, e-groups, newsletters, research and conference presentations, as well as online and in-person professional development activities.

A strategic plan of work for the Information Technology Education section will be developed through a survey of members that will be conducted on an annual basis to identify areas of priority for research, topics for conference presentations, professional development and partnerships with IT industry organizations or companies.

Meet Sherry Adrian

CTE is facing unprecedented cuts in funding at the very time when we can least afford it. As a consequence of the recent economic downturn, more and more people are looking for a way to increase their potential for employment. CTE is a desirable solution because our training meets a wide range of needs. We offer dynamic programs designed to prepare high school students for entry into college or the workforce, to further develop the capabilities of recent college graduates and to enhance the skill set of seasoned professionals.
