Extracts from this document...

Introduction

How ICT has affected my life at home or school In this task I will give details about how ICT has affected my school and social life. I will include my use of software like Microsoft word, internet, email and Lime wire. These programs have helped me on my class work and homework and they have also helped me keep in touch with my family and friends and also have improved my social life. There are many other uses of ICT like USB Flash Drives, mp3 players, and DVD's. My Social Use Microsoft Word Processor ICT has helped me in so many ways to make my social life easy. To improve my letter writing I use Microsoft word processor which is software that enables people to input a piece of writing. This software has assisted me to improve my home work with the help of different tools. I get pleasure from typing up work as it is a lot easier and neater than writing with a pen. If I wish to add a different piece of work then I can do so without hesitation just by copy and pasting. If I make a mistake then the computer will automatically underline my mistake and will give me the choice of correcting it. Although at times the computer will not recognise a few words. Microsoft word processor allows me to align my work for example if I am writing a poem then I can centre align, if I'm writing a letter then I can right align. ...read more.

MSN messenger is a programme which allows me to communicate and socialise with people online. This programme is very popular on the internet because many teens use it nowadays. MSN messenger sometimes can be a problem because sometimes teens talk to strangers and those strangers fake their identity and lead teenagers astray by getting them involved in drugs, sex, murder and such. The disadvantage of watching videos on the internet is that sometime teenagers may watch porn videos on the internet. Watching too many videos and trailers may slow my computer down and. This also occurs when I play too many games. For more information of the internet please check my school use section on the internet on page 5. Windows Media Player Windows Media Player is software which allows me to listen to music with or without access of the internet. It allows me to burn, play, and rip CD's and I can also play DVD's, VCD's. It also allows me to synchronize music or videos to a portable storage device like an Mp3 player, ipod, USB Flash disk. If I want to synchronize a song to my Mp3 player that I can do so by clicking on my synchronize list and dragging the song (s) I want to synchronize, but in order to get the music on my device I must put my Mp3 player in one of the USB ports. When everything is connected the music will be synchronized to my device. ...read more.

Conclusion

A USB Flash drive does not need a battery or charger because it lives on its storage capacity. If the storage capacity is full then I will need to by another Flash drive or I can just delete the unnecessary files. I use my USB Flash drive to store school work, my personal files and mp3 songs. I also use it to store pictures, videos and scores from arcade games. I can even use my USB Flash drive to repair my pc by transferring antiviral software's to damaged PC'S. A disadvantage of my USB flash drive is that sometimes my data might get corrupted due to loose wiring by the slight hit of a blunt object. Also some USB Flash drives take up nearly half the storage capacity just for storing in I short file. Some USB Flash drive do not utilize a re-write compact mechanism, this allows me to protect it from viral contaminated computers without affecting my USB Flash drive. Conclusion ICT technology has spread all over the world and has made a big impact in my life because I use it every day whether it's in the kitchen or in my room. Technology is widespread and has made life a lot easier than before; almost everything is the push of a button away. ICT technology is increasing day by day and people have become completely reliable on them. It has helped people all over the world as well as me with business, jobs, education and even romance. I think ICT technology will be the future of the world. ?? ?? ?? ?? (The way I do things at home and school) (3a) - 1 - ...read more.
