Why is Computing / ICT important?

Through computing, we not only learn to use technology purposefully and effectively, but become aware of the underlying processes involved, helping us to understand how best to apply skills safely and ethically. Learning about control systems and robots increases awareness of many of the operating systems we use to manage our everyday lives.
