Ohlone College Builds ICT Pathways for K-12 to College
Fremont, CA—Ohlone College was recently presented an award for their partnership in creating an exceptional information and communications technologies (ICT) pathway from K-12 through college. Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) is an umbrella term for the rapidly emerging, evolving and converging computer, software, networking, telecommunications, Internet, programming and information systems technologies. ICT is one of the most promising and emerging career fields with 1 in 20 jobs in 2010 and a projected 12% employment growth between 2006 and 2016.
Ohlone College is hosting an ICT Symposium on how to build high quality ICT pathways for students. Some components of the event are junior high summer camps, high school articulation with the College, digital literacy as well as pathways with Cisco Networking Academies. This event is open for high school and community college ICT faculty, district administrators, coordinators, and counselors. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided at the event.
