  1. Introduction to Technology

    Tools such as the Internet, Excel, Word, and Access allow students to easier research and prepare papers. Computers are very helpful to teachers. Many teachers can take advantage of the computers in their classroom or at home by entering grades and allowing the computer to compute them. Entering the grades can be very simple and fast. Allowing the computer to compute the grades saves time from manually computing them. The teacher can also set up attendance on the computer. But on the other side if computer is misused, it can result in demerits.

  4. Introductory Communications and Input Output Devices

    We shouldn't be able to see other users' personal data or documents. Each user then needs there own 'logon' identification and password. This is recognised by the system and the password attempts to ensure that the person is who they say they are. So it is important to keep the passwords private and change it frequently. They should 'logoff' the network properly. Facsimile (Fax) Fax machines are used to transmit documents which are not of personal nature. Immediate hard copies are printed at the other end, but the document cannot be sent if the fax machine is busy, and only one number can be used at one time.

Creating a logo and a slogan for the travel agency I can create the logo and the slogan by hand using a paper and a pencil/pen and then scanning it on the computer but I will not do this because it will take too long and also because it is most likely to be scruffy compared to a computer drawn.

  8. Video Games and Children, is it bad

    Serious adverse physical effects, however, are short or limited to a small number of players. Research has also identified benefits associated with creative and good uses of video games, as in physical rehabilitation. People that promote video games suggest that they may be a friendly way of introducing children to computers, and may increase children's hand-eye coordination and attention to detail, like the mega pixels in a television screen. Video games Use by Children show that recent studies have indicated that the time children spend playing video games has changed. In 1967, the average 11-12 year old watched 2.8 hours of television per day.

    So when text is written on the screen, it can be read back to the user.

  12. Online Shopping

    Among the many are Gap, Amazon, Marks and Spencer, Ebay, play.com and many more. To online shop all you have to do is follow the instructions that are given on the web page. It is very simple. Some benefits of online shopping are that sometimes you get it at a cheaper price. You can browse everything any store has not just what is at the store you can see back stock and everything. In addition, the most important benefit of all in my opinion is you can shop without leaving your house.

It saves travelling time and makes it easier for customers to purchase from shops which are not local to them.

  18. Sports Day Presentation Using Power Point

    Using Microsoft power point I can also create a master slide so that the layout of this slide would apply to all the websites and this would make my presentation much more consistent. Power point will be the most suitable software application for the presentation as it has a lot of presentation features like slide show, slide transition, animation etc and slides could have been made in Microsoft word as well but there would be less features available also, it would be much harder for me to edit the presentation as a word document instead of a presentation.

The base contains a dial to initiate a call and a bell or other signaling device to notify the user of a telephone call from another user. Some telephones have more or fewer parts, and some don't have this kind of integrated handset. * The system must connect the two or more telephones together.

  21. UNIT 3B - The impact of ICT on an adult in employment, including the effects on his/her working style

    Texting is an excellent feature as it means that he is able to contact someone without disturbing them. Likewise, it is easy for Mr Nash to receive texts whilst he is at school teaching, rather than disturb a meeting or class to receive a call. This feature helps Mr Nash meet his social and work-related needs. The second feature of the mobile phone is being able to access the internet. However, this does not meet any of his needs efficiently as it is more expensive and slower than a LAN internet connection for a computer. He rarely uses this feature because of these drawbacks and a more efficient internet connection on his phone would drastically improve the ease with which his mobile phone can help him meet all of his needs.

I no assumed that by typing information about EMA + East Riding - Hull I would find less websites but more detail, but surprisingly I found over 1,000 sites, and the site did have information on EMA but not as accurate as my last search.

    This reduces cost, maintenance and makes upgrades easier. * A user can access any software from any station. * Data can be shared by all users at the same time. Many people can access or update the information held on a database at the same time. Thus information is up to date and accurate. * Users can communicate with others on the network by sending messages and sharing files. * Individual workstations do not need a printer; one high quality printer can now be shared by everyone, thus cutting costs.
