Information and communications technology (I.C.T.) is often used as an extended synonym for information technology (IT), but is a more specific term that stresses the role of unified communications  and the integration of telecommunications (telephone lines and wireless signals), computers as well as necessary enterprise software, middleware, storage, and audio-visual systems, which enable users to access, store, transmit, and manipulate information.

ICT has a great impact on education as well as other aspects.

ICT in education has both positive as well as negative impact . 

Positive aspect of ICT in education.

1. Ensures life long learning.
2. Also enables distance learning.
3. We can access teaching materials and experts from all over the world.
4. It has the ability to perform difficult experiments by using stimulations. 

5. Possibility for students to have individual learning.

6. Man power problem and human error can be avoided by conducting online examinations.

7. The curriculum, information about text books, reference books and references are available using ICT.

Negative impact of ICT on education

1.There are large costs involved.
2.Students, and sometimes teachers, can get hooked on the    
   technology aspect rather than subject content.
3.One of the largest negative effects of ICT can be the loss of a    
   person’s job. This has both economic and social consequences.
4.Reduce personal interaction and physical activity.   

As every good thing has a bad thing, in the same way ICT also has both positive as well as negative impact on education. But the use lies in our hands whether to use ICT in a useful manner or have its negative impacts on our life.
