Introduction

ICT Developments Personal Communication Friends and Families The positive effects are that friends and families can contact their friends on a mobile or send texts. If they have an access to the internet they can stay in touch with msn chat. If they have a web cam they will be able to see you over the internet if they can't come over. "Mobile phones keep you in touch with your friends and families". Applied ICT (Double Award) The negative effects are that the families and friends might not have a mobile or if they do they might get ear radiation through the mobile. They might not have access to the internet or if they do have access to the internet they might not have access to msn chat. They might not know how to download it. They might not have a web cam so they will not be able to see you. The two needs which are use of ICT for the families are that they need to be in touch with their family they need to spend very little on phone calls. They need to be able to communicate cheaply. The two benefits of using ICT are that families can stay in touch with each other if they can't come over and it's quick and easy. If the families and friends have no connection to any sort of ICT then the consequences they might face are that they will feel isolated and lonely. They will miss out on talking to their family. They could write letters but it will take a long time. Education & Lifelong Learning The positive effects are that the teachers and learners can communicate from different places at different times, using the internet, mobile phones or e-mail. The internet has made it easier for the learners as they can stay up to date with research. Students can revise and take online tests. ...read more.

The items could be not what they look. The two needs which are use of ICT are that the buyers need to do shopping from home due to disabilities and to get good quality items. The two benefits of using ICT are that the buyers can get discounts from certain items and it's quick and easy. If the buyers have no connection to any sort of ICT then the consequences they might face are that they won't be able to do shopping from home and they won't be able to get discounts on certain items or offers. Call Centres & Customer enquiries The positive effects are that the customer enquiries enable you to ask any questions you have and if you would like to find out more information about anything. The call centres enable you to call in if you have any problems with your phone or anything else. "A number of large companies have there own call centres- offices with a team of staff answering telephone quires. Many are now starting to 'outsource' this to other companies. Smaller business can not always afford to employ staff to carry out this duty, so they also have to outsource if they want to deal with a high volume of calls." Applied ICT (Double Award) The negative effects are that they might not be able to provide you the exact information. The two needs which are use of ICT are that the customers need to find out information for certain things and they need to find out the exact information. The two benefits of using ICT are that customers can get the information they need with their phones rather than going out to companies to find out the information or any enquiries they want to discuss. If the customers have no connection to any sort of ICT then the consequences the customers might face are that they won't be able to discuss any enquiries that they have and they won't be able to make any calls even if they are important. ...read more.

Conclusion

People will be able to do things without moving so they will get lazy. The two needs which are use of ICT for the people are that they need to have rest and they need to have a security alarm which needs to be connected to the police station in case of burglary. The two benefits of using ICT are that people can have a rest if they are really tired. They can do stuff while they are sitting down. If the people have no connection to any sort of ICT then the consequences that they might face are that the people won't be able to do stuff things whilst sitting down. They will get jealous if someone else they know has got this facility. On-line Learning Groups The positive effects are that wheelchair users are able to work from home. Other people with any sort of disability can also learn or work from home. People with disabilities are offered access to the internet and a range of special equipment. "All centres are designed to accommodate people with special needs and some have full disabled access." Applied ICT (Double Award The negative effects are that the equipment could be too expensive to buy. Facilities for disabled people or people with special needs may not always be available. The work could get stressing. The two needs which are use of ICT for people are that they need to learn after they leave college or university. People need to get good quality education.
