In 1979, I founded a professional society named the International Council for Computers in Education (ICCE). About ten years later this professional society changed its name to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). At the time, I argued against using the word technology in place of the term computers. ISTE’s focus is on various aspects of computer technology in education. There are a huge number of technologies that fall outside ISTE’s province and interest.
However, you know how it is, “You win some and you lose some.” For a number of years Information and Communication /technology (ICT) has been a commonly-used term. Recently, Networking and Information Technology (NIT) has emerged as perhaps being a more appropriate name. See http://i-a-e.org/iae-blog/networking-and-information-technology-nit-not-ict.html.
