Purpose & Aims of ICT in Education The word ICT is the abbreviation of; I: Information C: Communication T: Technology So its aims are;  To make the process of communication easy & interesting with the help of technologies  To give new dimension to communication  Accessibility of information etc. And to describe a different technologies for:  gathering,  storing,  retrieving,  processing,  analysing and transmitting information.

Utilitarian Aims The utilitarian aims of ICT in education are as follow;

Social Aims The social aims of ICT in education are as in below; i. to encourage the learners to develop the appropriate social skills that are essential for co-operative and collaborative learning based around ICT; and, ii. to empower ICT disadvantaged learners by ensuring sufficient access for those learners who have little out-of-school opportunities to use the technology; and, iii. to facilitate better communication between the learners thereby promoting greater social understanding and harmony; and, iv. to ensure equity between all learners by providing appropriate qualitative and quantitative opportunities to overcome social and learning disadvantages.

Personal Aims The personal aims of ICT in education are as described in these lines. i. to encourage the learners to develop the appropriate personal skills that are essential for independent learning based around ICT; and, ii. to assist the learners to develop their potential to their fullest by facilitating the acquisition of knowledge; by helping the learner concentrate on higher order cognitive tasks rather than on lower order routine tasks and by positively affecting the attitude of the learner towards further learning; and, iii. to help the learners with special needs integrate themselves within school and society by increasing their independence and by developing their abilities and interests. Because of the above & many more purposes, use of ICT is increasing day by day in educational institutions. It not only makes teaching-learning process easy, interesting and reflective, but also it widens the horizon of education and gives new dimension to it. It tries to present absolute concept into concrete forms with the help of 3D. Thus every commission and policy emphasized on the use of ICT in educational institutions.
