We were at the Go digITal event during eSkills week earlier March and spoke to a number of ICT students present.
We asked them why they view ICT as important, why they're into ICT, as well as their achievements so far in ICT. Smart kids - some of them have already set up their own start-ups - and refreshing to hear that they view ICT as absolutely essential to their futures. Another great take-away for me was to hear that the ICT "brand" as it were has improved drastically. I remember just a few years ago when kids weren't getting into ICT because it was uncool, but that doesn't appear to be the case anymore.
